Duravet
Duravet is one of Gladding's strongest cords with multi-use applications. Duravet's construction has a parallel core of filament polyester with a tightly braided polyester cover which produces a very firm and stiff cord. The wear resistance, firm construction, mechanical termination capability, lightweight and non-corrosive nature makes it suitable for articulated revetment mats and is an ideal alternative to wire rope.
