Fall protection
Published:  02 May, 2018

New line of safety webbing and tapes suited for fire, law enforcement, industrial, military and commercial fall protection has been launched.

The new safety webbing and tapes have been developed by Bally Ribbon Mills (BRM) to meet the demands of applications requiring  fully engineered safety solutions. They can be used for shoulder straps, harness webbing, and chin straps as well as helmet suspension, binding tapes, lap belts and shock absorbing webbing.

Made from Nylon, Nomex, Kevlar, Vectran, PBI, Nextel, and other speciality fibres, BRM’s safety webbing and tapes have been designed for applications requiring high tenacity, abrasion resistance and flame and heat resistance.

They are also meant to be used in controlled elongation applications as well as those requiring chemical resistance in specific environments. They offer conductivity, dimensional stability and strength, and can help to reduce weight and size. The materials meet United States (NFPA) requirements for firefighters’ protective clothing and equipment.
