Dear Patrick

Our White and Black is “not” FR and we have corrected this error in our web page. At present we use this in our production only where black out is required.

Where cooling and shade are needed we have found that our standard shelters with attached porous “sunshades” works very well: Since our shelter’s poles are spaced well above the shelter’s covering, an attached external sun shade will block the sun and at the same time provides ample space underneath the poles for air flow to cool the sunshade and prevent the sun heated shade from radiating the absorbed heat into the shelter. We have tested this under summer desert conditions with doors open and found that the inside temperatures closely approach the shaded outside ones.

Let me know if I can be of further help you in anyway.

Dear Sir,

I could see on your web site this information:
Shelter Systems’ White with Black Shade:
White outside to reflect light and the sun and black inside to block light and sun. UV stabilized and fire retardant. Blocks virtually all visible light.
I would be glad if you could share with us the technical specification of that product, especially those related to the UV proof anf the Fire resistance. I.e. type of additives, Norms, level of performance and durability.

Thanks very much in advance for your help,

Best regards
