Safety By Design

There’s no substitute for safety, and no substitute for Edmund Bell products when high grade flame retardant fabrics are a priority. As one of the longest standing members of the BCFA (British Contract Furnishings Association) we are committed to our contract sector clients and have invested heavily in product innovation to support their businesses.

We’ve spent decades getting to know our industry inside out, from procurement to contractor operations, working closely with architects and design houses to successfully develop, manufacture and supply a comprehensive range of superior products to a growing number of contract clients in the education, healthcare, hospitality and other public and private sectors. It’s safe to say we’ve got the experience, the know-how and customer service skills to deliver in a challenging market.

As a company with a worldwide client base, all of our high quality, flame retardant curtain linings and decorative fabrics meet stringent UK and international safety standards*. Safety regulations vary worldwide, so if the FR standard you require is not listed, we can arrange appropriate tests. Our sales team understand the complexities of international safety regulations and can advise accordingly.

Safety and style go hand in hand thanks to our creative design team who ensure that our flame retardant fabrics for curtains, upholstery and soft furnishings, from attractive voiles and striking transfer prints to decorative blackouts, are as good to look at as they are effective in safety tests.


Our exceptional range of curtain linings – including flame retardant polyester, cotton sateen, blackout, fire barrier and bonded interlining - guarantee peace of mind in a variety of settings. Whether you need a wide width dim-out or blackout; a silk effect trevira CS, luxurious velvet, a traditional weave or even a double sided print for cubicles, the following pages will help you make the right choices. We also have professional brochures available – with and without Edmund Bell branding - plus creative photography in electronic formats that our clients can use to support their own marketing activity.
