This is a standard Certification that comes with most canopies.
  • If you have treated your Tent or Canopy with flame retardant spray bring the certification with you to the Show. Please be sure you have some kind of proof with you at the show, that your canopy is fire rated. This could be attached to the canopy (stamped, stitched, printed) or on your carry bag or in the printed documentation that came with the canopy when you purchased it. I suggest you contact the manufacturer and have them email you this proof or certificate.
