What is your order turnaround?

The intricacy and size of the job requested will determine the length of time needed for approximate delivery. While times may vary, there are 3 levels of job categories that determine order turnaround time.

Level 1: When ordering stock items, your order will take approximately 2 days to process before shipment

Level 2: For a standard (typical) curtain, one to two-day order entry, requiring at least one more day for drawing approval and an additional two weeks for manufacturing.

Level 3: When working with a complex project or a custom design the order entry process will take 2-3 days, followed by 1-2 weeks for drawing approval and up to 3-5 weeks for manufacturing to be completed before shipping

Delivery times vary on geography and are approximate and installation time will vary upon application.

Is your fabric flame retardant?

Yes.

When designing your custom solution, Soper’s can meet Class 1 ASTM E 84 or NFPA 701 flammability specifications and building code requirements by matching the right fabric to your application.

Both Canada and the United States uphold strict codes and regulations that determine classifications of flame retardant fabrics. There are many testing methods and agencies that perform these tests including the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM).
