  • Pelmet Buckram

    I have to quote a customer for a curved pelmet, I was talking to another curtain maker who advises me that the pelmet buckram will warp in direct sun light or heat.

    I personally have a buckram pelmet at home, made a long time ago, by a good friend who specialised in pelmets, and mine hangs in a window which is both south facing and a rad underneath, and I've not had any problems, but since it was made a number of year ago, perhaps things have changed?

    My friend has since moved to Oz so I can't pick her brain. I don't want to use pelform as personally I don't think it is very good - can anyone assist?

    Thanks in anticipation.

    Pelmet buckram is very hard on the hands. . . . . I would, personally, prefer to upholster a hard pelmet using that wonderful tool called the staple gun or even canvas if it's an intricate design. I have recovered many pelmets made of pelmet buckram and have no worries about their stability, just hate the hard, hard work involved. I, too, would not use pelmform as I do find it difficult and never gives a sleek finish. Personal opinion, I hasten to add.

      Still searching.

      Enid works with a colleague who works for some soft furnishing showrooms and supply her the product, so she is unsure of the name, but is it a single sided fusible buckram. Trawling this internet I think it is vilene S520??

      Has anyone worked with this product or does anyone know of a product like this, I'm looking for a superior form of pelform.

      Thanks

        not worked with it, however this link has good details from Vilene. The S520 is a fusible, plus there are other options
