According to the FDNY, over 26,000 structural fires occurred in New York City in 2010 alone. In order to avoid incurring huge costs as a result of the damage caused by a fire, fabric used for decoration and artistic enhancement in public areas should be fire proofed. When fabrics are flameproofed, they become resistant to spreading fire and also help prevent new fires from starting. The risk to life and property in a structural fire can be significantly reduced by flame proofing fabrics in .
Flame proofing fabrics can be done on- or off-site, although on-site is easier, as it limits the time and expense of removing and reinstalling the fabric. Fire proofing can be done by either coating or soaking the material in the fire retardant.
