  • Heavy Weight Lining

    I have decided to switch to a crease resist lining and have got samples from a few suppliers.........

    Hallis - H703 Solprufe Gold @ £1.85p/m
    Bells - Platinum CRF @ £1.56p/m
    Evans - DB1 @ £1.48p/m
    Gordon John - Didn't reply
    Jones - I think they are offering the Bells Platinum under their own label @ £1.65
    Bnacroft - An imported poly/cotton they are passing off as DB1 !!!! Cheap but not what i need.

    Have any of you used these products and how did they work? Any others that could be of use? I need heavy weight and crease resist.

    Many thanks

    Hi Dave A

    I use Evapure as a rule, but have just bought Evan's new Evaproof lining as it seems to be good value. The DB1 is also a very good lining which I use and haved always been happy with it.

      Is the DB1 the poly-cotton mix? If so, the advantage is that it is wider than 54" and help when using the slighty wider fabric that seem so popular at the moment - saves an extra lining join for a small amount of fabric. I would not use it for roman blinds as I don't find it stable enough. I use Evapure CR for curtains and non-CR for romans and am very, very happy with them both.

      What is the composition of the Evaproof Philip?

        I'm with Rosie, the Evapure standard makes it so easy to make linings for roman blinds - The Evaproof is 100% cotton sateen with max light fastness, same as BD1 which is why I wanted to try it as it's 28p a metre cheaper!

          I also use Evapure because of it's consistent quality.

                  Hi all,
                  I have been using Jones CR HL709 lining @ 1.80 a mt, I like a cream lining. Its very nice, but I thick maybe expensive? . May try Evans next time(Evaprufe).
                  I guess you get what you pay for though.

                    Evans supply a lot of these companies so I'd suggest you check them out first.

                      Thanks All,

                      Back from a short break, think i'll be going with the DB1 with Evans to start with and may try their Evapure at some stage.
