Fabric walling benefits and advantages

Fabric walling can be a superior alternative to  wallpaper and painted finishes providing superb insulation and acoustic qualities. This makes it an ideal solution in cinema rooms

Suitable textiles and materials for fabric walling

Natural fabrics such as silk, woven wool, linen and cotton are all suitable for this treatment. We are happy to work with supplied materials. As an alternative, we are well placed to supply designer fabrics and braids including options dyed to a specification if required. Obvious stripes and checks are not always ideal in period properties where crooked walls make pattern matching difficult, but the process of fixing – in expert hands – can provide an excellent outcome.

Fabric walling as a solution for listed buildings

Fabric walling can be a good option in older, rustic properties where the original wall has a rough or uneven surface and a more uniform finish is required. It is also useful in buildings where an original surface needs to be preserved but not on show, for example, to protect an old mural which is not part of a current scheme.

Fabric walling – the process

The process involves the fixing of slim wooden battens to the wall. Wadding is attached and then the fabric is stretched between the wooden battens before being finished at the edges with braid or trimming.
