Hi there

 

I need some black gauze of some sort to build some flags out of. Fireproof, natural fibre rather than plastic, so it doesn't burn or melt.

 

Usually I'd use sharkstooth scrim as it seems to be about two thirds of a stop's worth, but it only comes in enormous widths for making stage cloths.

 

Various grades of black gauze and mesh are available from general fabric suppliers, but they're often nylon or polyester and terribly sensitive to heat.

 

Looking for a UK supplier, ideally.

 

Any ideas?

Aren't flags usually Commando cloth?  Are they different in the U.K.?  Or did you mean material for a scrim?

It's a mesh. Scrim.

Then it's not a flag.  It's a net.

You want cinenet, a more dense fireproof version of bobbinet.

Well, if you want to be like that about it, it's a scrim :)

 

They're actually interchangeable covers for frames that can take a variety of things. I suspect in your world a scrim is metal, though.

 

I've used black stage scrim in the past and it's been fine, but I ran out of offcuts! I'm kind of used to it now.
