Fire Retardant Contract Upholstery Fabric

We would like to introduce you to some very special new fabrics. We’re all very excited about this as we’ve never offered Fire Retardant fabrics in our stock range before. If your project involves furnishing, whether in public areas or at home, these will be of interest to you.

There are guidelines on Fire or Flame Retardant fabrics within the UK. For those professionally designing for Hospitality, Healthcare, Office, Residential or other Public Spaces this Contract FR fabric will meet Fire & Safety regulations.

Always check your contract for compliance levels and suitability.

Sublimation printing on Polyester fabric is also renowned for it’s durability, lightfastness and abrasion testing. It really makes sense to test your next contract project with one of these fabrics.

As we’ve sourced pre-coated (FR) or inherent fire retardant fabrics (IFR) there is no need to send your printed fabric off to meet safety regulations after we have completed your print order. This minimises risk to the post-print quality that adding a coating may cause.

Durability and cleaning

Contract IFR fabrics will have a fire retardancy that lasts for the life time of the fabric as it is woven into the fibre itself. Contract FR fabric will have deminished retardancy over time as it is treated with a chemical coating. It is important that these fabrics are dry-cleaned with a non-liquid cleaning agent to preserve the coating for as long as possible.

We have a minimum number of pre-printed samples available. Get in-touch to secure your free sample before we run out.
