Pro-Edge is different from most other premium edge slings in that the edge protection is structural - it is built into the sling. Pro-Edge features edge reinforcement with twisted tire - cord yarns - for the same reason that these yarns are used in tires - they provide maximum resistance to wear (cutting and abrasion). Additionally, the twisting of these yarns provides an enhanced degree of resistance to cutting and abrasion as compared to non-twisted yarns. Longer life means reduced cost per use.
Most other premium edge products are made with non-twisted yarns and with vinyl or polymer edge coatings - coatings that can wear off over time and leave the end-user with a simple “standard” edge sling.
Pro-Edge is 50% tougher to cut than standard webbing. The edges are made with high tenacity twisted tire-cord yarns. It is a scientific fact that twisted yarns are more resistant to cutting and abrasion than untwisted yarns. Since these twists are part of the yarn construction, the cut and abrasion resistance properties of the yarn will not fade away after standard wear. This contrasts with other premium “edge” products, which use untwisted yarns with chemical coatings. When chemical coatings wear off… the consumer is left with ordinary yarns… without realizing they’ve lost edge protection.
When submitted to repeated surface and edge abrasion, Pro-Edge maintains its strength far better than most other webbing products on the market. Pro-Edge maintains 50% more of its strength than standard webbing when submitted to 2500 cycles of surface abrasion. Superior abrasion resistance is achieved by controlling the shrink process through a special heat-setting process. This is the same process that produces exceptional abrasion resistance in the manufacture of seat belts.
