Original Fagas™ strap (seat webbing)
Fagas ™ is the original strong rubber strap that provides a good and lasting comfort as seat webbing in classic armchairs and small sofas as well as new furniture in retro design.
Manufactured by compression molding of gray natural rubber. Mounting hooks of steel are embedded with a strong rubber-to-metal bonding.
From the end of the 1940s to the middle of the 1970s, famous Danish designers Arne Wahl Iversen, Hans Wegner and Ib Kofod-Larsen etc. designed armchairs and sofas, which have since become furniture classics. Swedish manufacturers such as DUX (Folke Olsson) and OPE-möbler were also responsible for classics, which are sold and exported worldwide: “Scandinavian Modern Classics” is currently extremely popular among collectors and furniture enthusiasts in the UK, USA, Asia and the Middle East.
Seating comfort and sense of quality can be returned to old furniture by installing new Fagas™ rubber straps, with full respect for the original craftsmanship and design. Replacement of the straps in the seat frame is extremely easy, thanks to the moulded-in metal hooks. The original Fagas™ rubber strap will prevent saggy webbing and creaking from the webbing attachment.
The original Fagas™ rubber strap with moulded-in metal hooks is used as webbing in several of the classic seats.
Correspondingly, the Fagas™ strap has been produced since the beginning of the 1950s and is thus the original spare part for these popular items of furniture. A hard-wearing and correctly matched quality rubber provides chairs with their intended seating comfort.
