Uniquely the UK is peppered with Village and Community Halls that vary in age and style reflecting the build methods from the relevant era. Nearly all are run by volunteers who may not be aware of the strict requirements required by Law. Most of these halls are used for amateur dramatic productions, meetings and similar events.
Stage curtains and backdrops in our experience, have proved to be the most forgotten and neglected items, and these by their very nature are the most volatile. Fireproofing irrespective of the type used loses its sustainability after a number of years depending on the environment and use it gets.
