Flame Retardant Barrier Cloth

We sell both fire retardant fabrics and fabrics that are not fire retardant. Some fabrics, whilst being suitable for upholstery with regards to fabric weight, may require treating to the relevant British Safety Standard if you are to use your chosen fabric to cover furniture or other items in the home. Alternatively you could use a FR barrier fabric with your chosen fabric when doing upholstery. When using a barrier cloth, you upholster the furniture in the barrier cloth first and then upholster the furniture in the upholstery fabric on top of the barrier cloth. So essentially the barrier cloth acts as a sandwich layer between the upholstery fabric and furniture. As this is two lots of work, you may find that your upholsterer will charge you more for this so double check whether it is financially better to get the fabric treated to be fire retardant or use the barrier cloth.

Our flame retardant barrier cloths for upholstery are available both online and in store from our fabric warehouse in Northamptonshire.
