Bally Ribbon Mills (BRM), an industry leader in the design, development and manufacture of highly specialized engineered woven fabrics, has announced the company’s expanded capabilities for producing superior polyester webbing that is fully compliant with the Berry Amendment. This standard requires the Department of Defense (DOD) to give preference to domestically produced fabrics and clothing. Bally webbing is also available in low minimum runs: as low as 1000 yards per color.
BRM polyester webbing is recommended for use by DOD contractors manufacturing aircraft seat belts, retractors, restraining harnesses, tie-downs and other end-use products. The Berry-compliant webbing is also a good choice for civilian agencies involved in a wide range of U.S. military procurement activities. BRM polyester webbing is in accordance with Mil/PIA-W-25361 and commercial A-A-55242A specifications, as well as application-specific requirements that have varied elongation specs. BRM can work with clients’ engineering teams to provide webbing that meets all requirements, including elongation.
Weave designs are customized at Bally to modify performance properties, offering expert capabilities for custom options and configurations to optimize designs. BRM’s polyester webbing is available in special colors, with superior color fastness guaranteed. Company laboratories provide color matching using advanced spectrophotometer instrumentation to validate color accuracy. Webbing is available in a wide range of widths, from 1 inch to 6 inches. Wider widths are available for specialty applications.
