Is ThermaLeaf® required?

Building codes specifically address the use of artificial foliage.

Understanding the fire code requirements for flame retardant artificial trees and silk plants can be a challenging and confusing process. Each State adopts its own fire code as well as every single municipality. In an effort to answer the question of whether fire retardant foliage is required, we have asked the Office of the State Fire Marshal in each State for the details of their fire code requirements.
