Wallcoverings designed for health and safety are always in style!

Today, interior design goes beyond the selection of color palettes and furnishings. Designers must consider healthcare regulations and sustainable building requirements to ensure that people can live, learn and work in visually pleasing environments that are also safe.

When choosing materials to decorate sensitive public environments, HP Large Format Print Media offers an extensive range of products that provide environmental and safety assurance. A large variety of HP Media hold Class A, B1, EN 13501, and M1 approved fire certifications* providing additional protection against the spread of fire. These accreditations, along with the GREENGUARD Children & Schools Certification and REACH compliance*, mean these products can be used in public areas such as airports, hotels, retail stores and hospitals, that must adhere to strict fire and toxin-free regulations

A few of the many environmentally and safety assured products include:

  • HP PVC-free Wall Paper—this easy-to-use, odorless, wall paper is FSC® and GREENGUARD Gold certified Children & Schools and has Class A, B1, EN 13501, and M1 approved fire certifications.
  • HP Light Fabric—this flame-resistant light fabric is REACH compliant and Oeko-Tex® certified* and is recyclable through the HP Large Format Media Take-back Program.
  • HP Durable Backlit Fabric—recyclable and REACH-compliant fabric, with B1 and NFPA 701 approved fire certifications for advertising graphics in stores, trade show booths, airports malls and more.
  • HP Gloss Polymeric Overlaminate and HP Matte Polymeric Overlaminate—these REACH and RoHs compliant media are classified as B1 flame-resistant.

Offer your customers the assurance of these safe and environmentally friendly products.

2019 Coachella Headliners: Ariana Grande, Childish Gambino—and HP!

HP’s focus on innovation and cutting-edge technology was on display at Coachella, the high-profile music and arts festival that takes place in the California desert every year. Technology and music increasingly go together, and the trailblazing music event was the perfect place to allow people to get inspired, educate and express themselves with HP technology.

Festivalgoers were amazed by HP’s 11,000-square-foot geodesic dome which projected the 360-degree film Underwater, set to music by electronic dance music trio, RÜFÜS DU SOL. The fans were also encouraged to express their creativity in the colorful, psychedelic HP lounge that emphasized interactivity; attendees took selfies and manipulated the images by moving their bodies. In addition, fans were able to create custom, sustainable backpacks using HP Latex 365 printers at the "Inspired Ink" station.

The ability to print custom, on-demand products is the future for digital printing and HP is in the lead with innovative new technology and products. Digital fabric printing remains one of the fastest growing segments in the print industry, with the worldwide market expected to reach $3,943 million by 2022. *

Stay on the forefront of printing trends and consider this new market with the potential for substantial profit. Check out HP’s innovative large format fabric offerings:

HP Light Fabric - offer custom work with this economically priced knitted polyester fabric that is flame-resistant, REACH compliant and OEKO-tex® certified. **
