The webbing makes the difference!
The webbing we use is especially designed and manufactured for SCHROTH. Each lot manufactured must pass our stringent quality control procedures. SCHROTH only uses Polyester material. Polyester has advantages over Polyamide (NYLON®) webbing. Advantages, such as lesser degradation under light (see figure 1) and a resistance against acids like battery acid. In addition Polyester does not absorb moisture so the performance of SCHROTH harnesses do not change whatever the climate may be.
Polyester also has a better force/elongation ratio so a well designed webbing can dissipate more energy during an accident. Unique to SCHROTH is the „memory effect“ we have designed into our webbing. Special mono filaments laterally woven in, perform like small leaf springs and keep the webbing flat. This results in better load spreading over the full width of the SCHROTH webbing. An additional advantage of the SCHROTH webbing:
The special weaving technology forms round edges for additional comfort (see figure 2).
