R Cord

Contact Us
The R range of small cords is manufactured from high tenacity polyester using a 16 carrier braiding machine. The smooth construction allows for a product that runs smoothly through hardware ensuring that the product lifespan is maximised while delivering high break loads. The cords are frequently used within the window blind industry, however can be used for all general purpose small cord applications. Standard reel sizes are detailed although other options are available including pre-cut lengths.
