Military Fabrics

Used in many arduous conditions, Arville fabrics are applied across an increasingly diverse range of personal protection equipment used within the military, civil forces and emergency services including protective clothing, load carrying kit, reinforcements for bomb disposal suits, helmet covers and linings

In these circumstances fabric performance is critical, needing to be lightweight, yet strong and durable

Our capability to weave with difficult ballistic grade yarns means we are able to produce high-strength fabrics which are designed to offer maximum protection, temperature resistance and flame retardency characteristics which can be relied on

Military Equipment

Arville fabrics are often used in many types of ancilliary equipment in active service throughout the military such as ballistic blankets, ammunition bags, stowage bags, and portable and temporary shelters

Our integrated capabilities of weaving, finishing, coating and fabrication makes us ideally placed to produce complex fabric pieces woven from high-performance ballistic grade yarns

Full control over the manufacturing process end-to-end gives our customers an efficient route to market with the knowledge that we are able to apply our techncial expertise at every step of the way
