Recovery Guidlines | Downloads | About Us


High quality webbing is used throughout our product range of lifting & lashing slings, tie downs, vehicle recovery ropes & straps, safety harnesses and seatbelts.

Our webbing is manufactured from high tenacity polyester, providing excellent safety and durability and offers significant advantages including:

  • Does not weaken with age
  • Inherently absorbent of shocks
  • Corrosion free
  • Simpler, more positive inspection - if it looks all right, it is all right
  • Lighter weight means easier working, less risk of injury
  • Lower weight also means lower transport costs
  • Suppleness of polyester accommodates irregularities of the load. Chain may damage the load or grip in the wrong place
  • Less risk of damage to polished, painted or sensitive surfaces compared to chains
  • Superior level of cargo control through high pre-tensioning
