Bally Ribbon Mills offers custom designed woven materials for critical rigging and lashing applications

Lightweight two-dimensional and three-dimensional salvageable materials provide strength and strength

Bally Ribbon Mills (BRM), an industry leader in the design, development and manufacture of highly specialized woven fabrics, announces the availability of a wide range of two- and three-dimensional lightweight woven materials that serve as the structure or of substrate for critical rigging and lashing applications that require strength, interlaminar shear, durable strength or conductivity.

BRM designs specialty bespoke applications with high strength-to-weight ratios, flame/heat resistance, flexibility, low elongation and abrasion resistance. Available in widths from one to six inches, BRM rigging and lashing materials are made from high performance fibers such as Kevlar®, Vectran®, Technora®, Spectra® and Dyneema®.

Recent examples include specialist materials for load securing/stabilizing equipment, friction sleeves used for lifting and sling materials for safe load transfer in cargo screening facilities, as well as straps used to safely move chip-making equipment in factories. The BRM rig and tie-down strap are also used as a sling in an actuator/drum serving as the resistance tendon of a robotic arm used in a loading device designed for a lunar habitat.
