      We manufacture and supply our webbing and technical narrow fabrics to end users for the manufacture of products across a wide variety of applications and industries.


      Webbing is a woven fabric manufactured using natural or synthetic yarns, including Polyester, Nylon and technical yarns, such as Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) often manufactured under the brand name Dyneema® and aramid fibres, often manufactured under the brand name Kevlar®.

      It is called a narrow fabric because it is generally produced in narrow widths up to approximately 320mm.  Webbing is woven using looms and can be manufactured in a flat or tubular state.  Webbing and technical narrow fabrics can be produced with exceptionally high tensile strengths, making it a suitable product for applications requiring strength, durability, and safety.

      End-uses for webbing and narrow fabric applications are practically limitless.  Our design team constantly works with new customers to innovate narrow fabrics based solutions to meet customer requirements.
