We specialise in the development of high-performance woven narrow fabrics and technical ribbons, achieving properties such as:
- High Strength
- Light weightness
- Flame resistance
- High stability
- Creep resistance
- Abrasion resistance
- Impact resistance
Our woven narrow fabrics are used in a wide range of applications including:
- Fall arrest equipment
- Fire Safety equipment
- Breathing apparatus
- Emergency escape equipment
Though our knowledge of product manufacturing and our ability to get the best from speciality fibres such as Kevlar®, Nomex®, Vectan®, Technora® and Carbon Fibre, we are solving the technical challenges faced by our customers.
If you have a project requiring a specialist fabric construction, please contact us…

Did you know?
Aramid webbing has a low flammability, high strength and high modulus. Most Aramid yarns are affected by UV light which alters the natural colour and degrades fibre strength upon prolonged exposure, However, a blend of fibre or covering such as polyester can reduce this UV impact.
Aramid fibres can be split into two differing fibre groups of Para-Aramid & Meta-Aramid:
Kevlar® webbing has endless opportunities with applications in body armour, industrial safety, aerospace and automotive components. Invented over 50 years ago by Stephanie Kwolek of Dupont, it is stronger than steel, lightweight and has many benefits in high temperature environments.
We manufacture a range of Kevlar® webbings available from stock in both 100% Kevlar® or in a blend of other fibres to create Kelvar® webbing with differing capabilities.
Nomex® webbing offers many benefits for safety related garments due to the way the fibres react and change their properties offering protection against heat transfer.
The fire retardant properties in the Nomex® webbing can not be laundered nor worn away.
Nomex® webbing will not melt, drip nor assist combustion.
