FR Wadding

White, Sumptuous & Fire Resistant.

FR wadding, or skin wadding as it is more commonly known, is used mostly in the traditional upholstery trade. It is used to stop horse hair and other fillings from bearding (poking through).

Here at Cowens our FR skin wadding comes in brilliant white or an oyster colour and is made from a mixture of natural fibres. This makes it the perfect choice for using under a light fabric when you want to give the appearance and feel of something rather sumptuous. The FR feels soft and light and has a bouncy, lofty appearance.

FR skin wadding complies to BS 5852 schedule 2 part 1, source 2 of the Furniture and Furnishings (Fire) (Safety) Regulations 1988.

As we manufacture this FR skin wadding here at Cowens, we can accommodate widths up to 1.8m wide and a choice of lengths. We can also offer this wadding in non-FR.

Standard FR skin wadding comes in a width of 90cm & lengths of 10 or 30 metres.

We offer a completely bespoke service.
