A high quality needled felt fire barrier woven in fire retardant viscose and wool, is an interliner providing fire resistance and deep padding with the flexibility to upholster, making it easy to work with.

The backing is fused to the back of your fabric to reinforce the material to become more resilient and conforms to BS 5852:1982 Part 2 ignition source 5 (crib 5) & Schedule 3 (Ignition resistance test for interliner)

A schedule 3 fire barrier protects some of the harmful foam used in upholstered furniture from being exposed. This FR backing will ensure that your fabrics will meet BS 5852 CRIB 5 without compromising the quality or durability of the fabric.

In addition the felt barrier has a soft feel, which services the padding and cushioning effect with a natural spring suitable for upholstery and curtain usage.
