We manufacture both conventionally plaited braids and knit braids. The two types have different structures and, consequently, their properties vary. This makes them suitable for different end-uses although there is some overlap. We have described them separately.
As a general rule we make for specific orders rather than supply from stock. However, any stocks of regular or surplus braids will be posted on the News page.
Minimum order quantities:- These will vary depending on the diameter and type of braid and are stated on the appropriate price lists. Smaller quantities can be supplied but will attract a premium.
PLEASE NOTE: We do not make climbing ropes or braids from such materials as nylon, dyneema, polyaramids, carbon fibre etc.
Plaited Braids - Manufactured in diameters from 2mm - 12mm. (polyester, acrylic, polypropylene, and cotton)
Knit Braids Manufactured in the following diameters - 4, 6, 9 and 12mm (polypropylene)
Specialist Braids - eg fireman's personal lines and safety guidelines, barrier ropes, whistle lanyards etc.
Additional Services - eg cutting, bagging - details on request
