Many types of Grommets for Fabric.

way to run cord or string through fabric.
A grommet for fabric is a protective eyelet. It is placed in the fabric to
prevent damage either to the fabric or to whatever is passed through it. They
are generally flared or collared on each side to keep them in place. They are
often made of Brass or Plastic. They may be used to prevent tearing or abrasion
of the pierced material. Or to cover sharp edges of the piercing. The most common
materials are metal and plastic. Plain Brass Grommets are the most common type
of metal grommets for fabric. They are usually made of brass and can be nickel
plated. Small Grommets are sometimes called eyelets. Plain Brass Metal Grommets
are useful for low stress applications like tents, tarps, and covers. They are
also used on curtains, boat canvas and flags. They are used as banner grommets.
Size ranges from 3/16 inch inside diameter to 1/2 inch inside diameter. Brass
Spur Grommets are metal grommets that have spurs that bite into the fabric and
hold better than a Plain Grommet.
Spur Grommets are used in high stress applications such as Sails and Boat T-tops.
Both of these metal grommets are available in a Brass finish or a Nickel Plated
finish. The Nickel Plated Grommets are often mistaken for Stainless Steel, but
are much easier to install. Sizes range from 1/4 inch inside diameter to 3/4
inch inside diameter.
We have Plastic Drapery Grommets. They are elegant looking and are much easier
to use than a metal Grommet. Sizes range from 1/2 inch to 2 3/4 inch inside diameter.
No tools are required to install any of our Drapery Grommets. They can be easily
installed by a non professional. Beacon Fabric & Notions has a large selection
of Drapery Supplies.
