Super lightweight parachute fabrics


From the 1930s to the present day, Heathcoat Fabrics has been at the cutting edge of parachute fabric design and manufacture, for global, military and aerospace applications.

Superior manufacturing technologies and techniques have led us to design, develop, and manufacture parachute fabrics for aircraft/race car deceleration, airborne troop deployment, weapons & load deployment, combined with continuing in-depth involvement in developing specialist fabrics for NASA and the ESA (European Space Agency).

Heathcoat Fabrics has a unique position in the marketplace in that we are the only parachute fabric manufacturer to design and specify our own exclusive yarns for this market.

Our latest technology for specialist military parachute markets is the development of our DecelAir™ Superlight and Ultralight fabrics weighing 20gsm and less.

John Stimpson, Business Manager, said:

“We are very excited about the level of interest that this emerging technology has generated within the non-military markets, hence our return to the Coup Icare exhibition”.

Heathcoat Fabrics market its extensive range of military and specialist parachute fabrics under the DecelAir™  brand and have been a member of PIA – Parachute Industry Association for many years.
