Annex C to PSO 3803 PRISONER BEDDING

  Prisons in general and in particular ‘cellular accommodation’ areas are very vulnerable to the effects of fire due to the very nature of those committed to their care; with this in mind, the Prison Service Fire Safety Manual states:

“The type of bedding used has been controlled. The Prison Service only issue bedding, which conforms to laid down standards. All non-issue items must also conform to the same standard. Duvets, for example, must be to a standard at least equal to that which is required in hospitals or similar institutions.

The flammability standard necessary is Ignition Source 0 and 7 in accordance with British Standard 7175 1989 Section 2.3.3. Contact the Fire Safety Section for advice.”

The level of risk posed by bedding is determined by the fire risk assessment and subsequent advice given by Fire Safety Advisor. With this in mind, prisons should be seeking to supply mattress and furniture products that conform to ignition source 7+ as displayed on the labels etc. Further to this, advice from CPIG (Crown Premises Inspection Group) sets the standard that they expect to see used in prisons and the table below gives the ratings necessary for each article:
