The work positioning strap or pole strap, was originally made from leather, which over time deteriorated due to exposure to the elements and abrasion. Today, we use three materials - Nybuck, leather reinforced with nylon and woven nylon.
Nybuck is woven nylon filament cloth, folded and impregnated with neoprene and then pressed under pressure to ensure permanent bonding and sealing of edges, to prevent moisture penetration. Center layers are of contrasting colors, so that wear is readily apparent. Nybuck is surprisingly flexible.
Leather reinforced with nylon, is nylon webbing between layers of leather. The result is strength, durability and flexibility. The nylon webbing also provides a visual indication of wear.
Woven nylon is extremely pliable. Center layers are of contrasting color to provide a visual cue to excessive wear. A slide buckle makes woven nylon straps very easy to adjust.
The main components of pole straps are the strap, a buckle and two snap hooks. These components are thoroughly tested in our own quality control lab and at an independent lab to ensure we meet or exceed all standards. For your convenience, we offer two types of snap hooks - standard and locking, and two types of buckles - tongue and friction.
Our adjustable straps are made in standard lengths from 5'-8" through 8' maximum lengths. We can also provide these in fixed lengths of your choice.
