Is there a maximum meterage I can send per roll?
Yes, we require length of fabric rolls to be maximum continuous length around 20 metres due to the size and weight doubling once backing is applied. This also makes installation much easier.
Will there be work loss?
When calculating your fabric requirements, you must include with your order one additional half a metre for each continuous piece of material supplied. This is due to two reasons being one our process at the beginning and end of the cycle. Two: some fabrics may need to be pre-shrunk (heat pressed) through the machine and an allowance of 5% fabric shrinkage should be taken into consideration.

Do I need to get my fabric fire treated?
If you are using fabrics in public places such as hotels, bars, restaurants, theatres, schools, retail stores and other commercial settings you would need to meet certain flammability regulations. Check with a verified fire testing laboratory to determine requirements needed to meet regulations that relates to your intended application as fire codes vary from different countries.
Do we treat the fabric before or after lamination?
We suggest treating the fabric first before lamination process, especially with paper backing services.This must be carried out and cured over 48 hours before we begin to apply backing. Please ensure you advise us when placing orders if the fabric has been treated.
Will you provide a certificate of compliance?
No, we highly recommend you send a fabric sample once processed with the service(s) required to a verified fire testing laboratory to test and receive certification of compliance. However you must check with the lab for requirements of fabric quantity needed to carry out testing of your finished fabric. Large samples can be processed for testing at request, charges may apply.
Do you assess fabrics before processing?
The first process begins with sampling, once this has been approved and signed off by both parties the fabric is then sent for processing. However we once again check and evaluate the first half a metre to ensure its suitability with your chosen process(es). Any flaws or weaving imperfections can be inspected at an additional charge. However if there is any questions or a cause of concern with the fabric we will then be in contact.
