Textiles stronger than steel

In relation to their weight, there are textiles that are 15 times stronger than steel. That’s useful in many applications, especially considering the savings in weight, which can be up to 85%. Not to mention flexibility, which opens a long range of options not available to more rigid materials. And for security uses, technical textiles offer another dimension.

Secrecy is security

We’re sprung from a company with decades of experience from textile technology. In addition to using different kinds of textiles, there are many ways of knitting, weaving and combining threads to meet different needs. In our case, the need is to stop power tools from penetrating walls. In order to make sure this stays very difficult, we keep our technology to ourselves. That’s why we don’t go into detail on how our anti-cut panels are constructed. Instead, we focus on their performance and the fact that they offer reliable protection for safe rooms, high-value transports, cash-in-transit vehicles, security containers and security walls.

What we can tell you is that our technology tangles up the power tool, no matter if it’s a drill, grinder, cut-off saw or reciprocating saw. The textiles and their construction is designed to halt the power tool and often causes the engine to stall completely.

Innovation and testing

Power tools are not designed to cut through an intricate net of high-performance threads. They’re designed to cut, saw and drill through steel and concrete – a job they do well. In many cases it only takes a couple of minutes to penetrate a 5 mm steel wall and manage a hole large enough for a person to get through. We know because we test this, with and without our anti-cut panels installed. We’re also determined to stay one step ahead of the power tools we’ve made it our purpose to stop. That’s why we keep adjusting and innovating to make our anti-cut panels even harder to get through.
