Question Another Headliner Project Question

Our existing headliner consists of a thin white vinyl over foam padding over 1/8" hardboard of some type. The admiral correctly points out that the foam backing provides an effective sound deadening. The panels are held in place with velcro in most areas but also a few teak strips w/screws.

I expect that I'll just replace what's there with the same or similar type construction. Does anyone know of:
- a decent, thin foam material that will not asphyxiate us with toxic fumes immediately if it catches fire?
- a good source for replacement vinyl cloth?
- another alternative - other than carpet - that will provide good sound deadening?

Thanks in advance

Armacell has a variety of foams of different thiknesses.

Steve Dashew has a write up about his selection of it here, and there is more information on the page about headliners.

Mark, you may be able to talk to a local automobile "vinyl roof and interior" shop to either buy material or find a local supplier. Fire-retardant foams are problematic too, in that the fire-retarding materials apparently are also toxic and manage to just "dust out" of them. Mixed blessing.
