Classroom Displays – is your display a fire risk? 1

Ok – how scary was that??
3d tree displays, we all love them don’t we? It’s one of the most common searches people use to come to this blog. Have you ever even considered the fire hazards our displays might be causing?
I know that many local authorities are fitting fire retardant display boards in school but I can’t help but wonder how effective they are once we’ve covered them in poster paper.
I’m going to do a bit more research on this subject and check what the guidance in the UK is, especially about 3d displays and display materials. I’ll post on this in the next few days.
Meanwhile what safety guidelines do you follow when you are making displays?

    My school’s safety guidelines was putting displays far away from electricity’s use. Besides, using a brick wall is preferable than wood wall.
