CAN ULC-S109-14


A flame is applied to a vertically oriented test fabric to determine the burning behaviour. The test provides a means to determine the relative response to flame of fabrics under low intensities of fire exposure.


1.1 These requirements apply to the performance in flame-exposure tests of flame-resistant fabrics of
natural, synthetic, or combinations of natural and synthetic fibres, or plastic films intended for such use as
tents, awnings, draperies, or decorations. The flame resistance of the fabric or film may be inherent in the
material used or may be the result of chemical treatment to retard ignition and spread of flame.
1.2 These requirements are not intended to apply to fabrics and films to be used for clothing nor to
materials to be applied to surfaces of building or backing materials as interior finishes.
Note: Where fabrics and films are backed by a substrate, the fabric and film is more appropriately tested to the
requirements in CAN/ULC-S102, Standard Method of Test for Surface Burning Characteristics of Building Materials
and Assemblies. For the evaluation of roof coverings refer to the requirements in CAN/ULC-S107, Methods of Fire
Tests of Roof Coverings.
1.3 The fabrics and films are intended for use in accordance with the requirements in the National
Building Code of Canada.

Alendel will resume shipping as of Thursday, March 26th 

Dear Alendel Customers 

As we continue to navigate COVID-19 together, I want to be sure we continue to be transparent in our communication as the situation is changing daily.  

In the past 24 hours, we have received many calls from customers that either currently manufacture or started to manufacture for essential businesses asking if we can make exceptions to ship. 

While we remain committed to customer and employee safety; we have been in contact with authorities to assist in assessing our situation based off facts and science; defined principally by the expert guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) and local Government. 

As a partner in this fight together, Alendel Fabrics will re-open its warehouse and shipping departments as of tomorrow, Thursday, March 26th with social distancing best practices already in place while other departments continue to work from home. 

For safety, the Alendel showroom and local pickups will remain unavailable until further notice.  

As a reminder, The Alendel Customer Portal ( is a great tool that enables you to place orders, check stock & pricing 24/7. Memo samples can be ordered directly from our website at Should you require additional assistance our customer service team is also available by phone and will continue to answer questions and accept orders over the phone, by fax, and by email. 

Through this challenging time, our top priority remains the health and safety of our employees, customers, and communities. 

We are proud of our team of employees and partners, who have continued to remain focused, committed and resilient.
