*Median loading – explanation
Median loading capacity is determined by a series of separate static loadings applied to a single Clingon™ installed on a 680/700 gms/sq.mtr. vinyl fabric (without hem). The median loading capacity represents the approximate safe working load that can be applied to the Clingon™, and in general terms determines the safe load bearing capacity of the bridge within the sleeve component.

IMPORTANT – the median loading capacity does not represent the efficiency or holding/gripping power or efficiency of the Clingon™ – those elements of performance are determined by both the correct application of the Clingon™ and by the physical characteristics of the fabric/substrate onto which the Clingon™ is being applied.
