Frequently Asked Questions
Our Soper’s team can help guide you in determining which solution will be best suited to your needs and requirements with one or more of our survey sheets. Our survey sheets can be found on our Resources page. Once we have received the initial input from your completed survey sheets, and if possible pictures of the potential installation area, we will go to work on developing some preliminary concepts.
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.

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). It’s important to note that flame-retardant materials are not fire proof. Here are some material examples that are used in a few of our popular product lines:
|Vinyl Coated Polyester (VCP)||Select VCP materials meet NFPA-701, CAN/ULC-S109 and Class 1 ASTM E 84 flammability specifications||Soper’s SoftWall Enclosures, Partitions and Curtains|
|14 mil Polyvinylchloride (PVC) Clear||PVC is a popular clear vinyl that is cost efficient, flexible, and durable and meets the NFPA-701 fire rating||Curtains, Partitions and Welding Screens(PVC is available in clear or welding colours)|
|Woven Polyethylene||Woven polyethylene fabric provides extremely high tensile and tear strength in relation to its light weight and meets NFPA-701 and Class 1 ASTM E 84 flammability specifications||Soper’s Curtains, Partitions and Fabric Air Ducts|
*Soper’s also carries a variety of specialty high temperature resistant fabrics
