Fabric for Commercial Use
There’s a distinction between textiles that are used for residential purposes and those that are used for industrial or commercial purposes. Commercial fabrics need to be highly-durable in high use environments such as in the hospitality industry, retailers, healthcare facilities, offices, convention centers and restaurants. Many commercial projects require a fabric that is produced to meet state code construction specifications. For instance, in a healthcare environment a fabric may be required to be anti-microbial, a fabric used in a hotel may be required to meet stringent non-flammability requirements and a fabric used in a commercial exterior will require that the fabric is mildew, UV and water resistant. We work directly with administrators, civil project managers, commercial designers, commercial real estate professionals and builders to supply them with contract-grade, commercial upholstery for their project needs.


About Commercial-Grade Fabric
Woven commercial upholstery fabric is typically composed of synthetic fibers or a combination of synthetic and natural fibers that produce a highly durability fabric. The following synthetic fibers are commonly used in the weaving of commercial fabrics:
  • Nylon
  • Polyester
  • Wool
  • Olefin
  • Acrylic

Non-Woven commercial fabrics include:
  • Faux Leather (Vinyl Leather)(Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)
  • Bonded Leather
  • Genuine Leather

The Wyzenbeek Test is an industry standard to measure the abrasion resistance of upholstery fabric. A minimum rating of 30,000 double rubs is suggested for a commercial upholstery fabric. For comparison, 15,000 double rubs is the typical rating for a high use residential upholstery fabric. In commercial upholstery applications, abrasion resistance is key to longevity in both performance and appearance so you’ll find many commercial-grade fabrics exceed a 30,000 double rub rating with some reaching in excess of 100,000 rubs making them some of the the most abrasion-resistant fabrics available.


Industries Using Commercial Fabric (Contract Fabric)
Commercial textile fabric is used in a wide range of applications. Below are some of the most common industries to find extensive use of commercial upholstery fabric:
  • Restaurant
  • Healthcare & Medical
  • Hospitality (i.e. hotels)
  • Education Institutions
  • Retail Stores
  • Theater
  • Offices & Creative Spaces
  • Civic & Convention Centers
  • Industrial Offices


Commercial Upholstery Fabric FAQs

What are commercial upholstery fabrics?
Commercial fabric is any type of textile fabric that is used in a commercial environment or application. In most cases, these type of fabrics are woven using synthetic fibers or a blend with natural fibers to produce a high-performance and high-grade textile to stand up to extensive wear. Further, many commercial environments require that the fabric meets building code specifications for example non-flammability in an high rise or anti-microbial in a hospital.
You’ll commonly find commercial upholstery fabric in the following places:
  • Restaurant & Fast Food
  • Healthcare & Medical Waiting Rooms
  • Hospitality (i.e. hotels, motels, etc.)
  • Education Institutions
  • Retail Stores
  • Office & Work Environments
  • Airport Terminals
  • Theaters
  • Sports Stadiums

What is the double rub rating for commercial upholstery?
Commercial fabrics or textiles designed for commercial upholstery applications have a high standard of performance. Contract fabric (another term for “commercial fabric”) is typically rated at a minimum of 30,000 double rubs achieved on an industry standard Wyzenbeek test that measures the fabric’s abrasion resistance. Although a minimum double rub rating of 30,000 is suggested, some fabric exceeds 100,000 and are considered an extra-heavy duty contract commercial fabric.
