Benefits

The benefits of ThermaLeaf® are many but none more important than it is the safest  artificial foliage on the market; meeting local, national and international fire codes.

Comparison

Fire Safe Plants:
ThermaLeaf Foliage vs. Topically Treated Foliage

The most fire safe plants available are plants made using inherently fire retardant foliage where the fire retardant chemical is impregnated into the leaves and branches during the injection molding process. The illustration below shows a side by side comparison of the benefits of fire safe plants made with ThermaLeaf® foliage versus topically treated foliage.

 

Structurally sound fire retardant plants and trees; premium
grade fire safe materials withstand commercial application.
