Many types of Grommets for Fabric.
Brass and Plastic Grommets for utility and Drapery use; Small Eyelets for Clothing and Apparel Applications.
A grommet for fabric is a protective eyelet in the fabric that prevents 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. Plain Brass Grommets are the most common. They are usually made of brass and can be nickel plated. Plain Brass Grommets are useful for low stress applications like tents, tarps, and covers. They are also used on curtains, banners, boat canvas and flags. Size ranges from 3/16 inch inside diameter to 1/2 inch inside diameter. Brass Spur Grommets 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 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 and can be easily done by a non professional. Beacon Fabric & Notions has a large selection of Drapery Supplies.
