Polyester vs Nylon Highlines
Highlines are mainly composed of one of two kind of synthetic fibers: polyester or polyamide (known also as nylon). Both materials have very high resistance properties. Polyester is the more resistant to traction and wear of UV rays, while Nylon presents greater stretch and the fibers make therefore the webbing softer and more pleasant to body touch.
The minimum strength required for highline webbing
In highlining there are no certification party that release minimum safety standards for the gear to use in this sport. For this reason, all manufacturers, including ourselves, are forced to declare that none of our highline-specific products are personal protective equipment (PPE). Use highline products only with appropriate personnel supervising you and taking sufficient precautionary and safety measures.
Only use highline webbing with a minimum breaking strength of 30 kN. This is not a value to guarantee the minimum strenght of the whole highline set up, but is an international convention among manufacturers to indicate a suggested minimum level of safety for a highline set up and to guarantee a safety factor of more than 3 times the working load that the webbing in case of a leash fall.
