No more abrasive, uncomfortable straps
straps are easy to use, but their rough, stiff edges and harsh outer surfaces make them uncomfortable against the wearer’s skin. To remedy this problem, padding is often added to the strap.
Beta Pile Loop
offers a better solution. It provides the ease of hook-and-loop and the comfort and convenience of a padded strap. Beta Pile Loop’s inner layer of Polyfoam acts as a protective cushioning for inflamed, swollen, or painful areas. The exclusive Soft-Edge design will not put undue pressure on soft tissue. Other stiff, unpadded straps produce abrupt pressure transitions on the skin adjacent to the strap edges. Beta Loop’s edges are soft and conforming. Pressure changes are gradual along the strap’s edges. This feature lowers the subcutaneous shear forces and minimizes long-term harmful effects.
Special Strap Designs Are Easy
Most Beta tapes have hook-sensitive fabric on both the top and bottom surfaces, so special strap designs are made easily. Beta Loop can be cut to your most intricate strap design. Cut edges won’t fray or unravel. Use two-sided hook as a closure method to adhere between the two loop-facing surfaces. No sewing. No adhesive.
Beta II solves the stretch problem
Only Beta Pile products contain an internal stretch resistant core that limits strap stretch under load and stabilizes the strap dimensions, both length and width. Just compare Velfoam® #2
