Rose Brand’s new Melt Out fabric comes in black, white, red, blue, as well as dark and light grey.

Rose Brand Inc. now offers “Melt Out” fabric, a more economical, fire safety, ceiling fabric used to diffuse light over trade show booths, displays and exhibits. Melt Out has meltable seams, which appear every 12 inches along its length. In the event of fire, the seams open, allowing smoke to escape and water from sprinklers to come through. It is priced to save customers  more than half the cost of similar products while not sacrificing any of the quality, safety, or aesthetic qualities. It’s highly economical for large scale surface coverage. Melt Out is 96 inches wide, inherently flame retardant, stretchable, and comes in black, white, red, blue, as well as dark and light grey.
