Otego is a French company specialised in the manufacturing of technical fabrics since 75+ years. If Otego’s priority has always been the protection of people and machinery, in between others against heat, with its latest innovation Fireguard, protecting cultural heritage is now just as much important for the company.
The product was developed following multiple conversations with cultural institutions and fire brigades to make sure we have an efficient solution that protects all types of artwork against the three main sources of damages in case of fire (heat, water and smoke/soot).
Additionally, Fireguard is ultra-lightweight (135g/m2), flexible and easy to install to meet as much as possible the needs of people in charge of installing it, ensuring fast set-up in case of emergency.
Fireguard also enters in the scope of Emergency Plans with cultural institutions such as the Louvre Museum, French national Library BnF, City of Geneva, Museum Association of Switzerland, Musée Fabre, Bordeaux Cathedrals, several Fire Brigades… which are already equipped.
If the production of its fabrics is 100% made in France, Otego has subsidiaries in the USA and China and commercial offices in Spain, Argentina, Thailand, India and Taiwan to better meet the needs of cultural heritage protection globally.
