Due to potential fire hazards, the University Fire Safety Policy prohibits the following items:
Inflatable furniture and bean bag chairs are not permitted in students rooms due to the toxic, dense smoke that they release in a fire.
Upholstered furniture must be fire retardant. Look for one or more of these fire retardant standards on identification tags:
If you cannot find any of these fire retardant identifications, treat the furniture with a fire retardant coating that lists one or more of the following standards: ASTM-E 84, NFPA 701, or UL 723. Fire retardant coatings can be found in some paint stores, hardware stores and department stores.
Wood furniture must either be constructed with pretreated lumber or must be coated with fire retardant. Pretreated lumber will be stamped with wording such as "Class A ASTM" or Underwriters Laboratories, Inc., 17PO". Fire retardant paints and varnishes will list one or more of these standards: ASTM-E 84, NFPA 701, or UL 723. Be sure to get a paint or varnish that is fire retardant, not "heat resistant".
