Keetsa does not use fiberglass. The fire barrier used in Keetsa mattress is made with 100% cotton fabric treated with OEKO certified flame retardant agent. The treated fabric is tested again by OEKO for complete safety.
Mattresses manufactured in or imported into the United States must meet the US CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) flammability standards ‘16 CFR Part 1632’ (mattresses and mattress pads) and ‘16 CFR Part 1633’ (mattresses and mattress sets). This consumer protection law went into place in 2007 to make mattresses more fire safe. We use a PBDE-free fire barrier that has been safety tested and complies with federal regulations.
The fire barrier has been tested inspected and certified by STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®, an independent testing and certification system used worldwide for raw, semi-finished, and finished textile products at all processing levels. The results of the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® inspection (Appendix 4, Product Class II) indicate that our fire barrier cotton fabric meets the human-ecological requirements for skin contact.
Our fire barrier also fulfills the requirements specified by Annex XVII of REACH for the use of azo colorants and nickel release as well as the American requirement for lead content in children's articles (with the exception of accessories made from glass).
