Notches & Rings

Sleeves von POLYWESTProduct improvements are sometimes small and not clearly visible, but important for lifetime of sleeves. Notches and interlocks are very good examples for such improvements. Today the plastic reeinforced notch is the standard version for notches within sleeves, shown in the ONYX+ sleeve in the picture. The older notch with a seperade metall plate will only be offered by special order from the costumer. The most used version is the black PU Ring, shown in the RUBIN+ sleeve. The PU Ring made out of Polyurethane is durable, protects the baseslave on the gearside and do not damage or cut off the Pin on the cylinder. For carbon adapters or bridge sleeves the stainless steel ring with the interlock notch is used. Some costumer prefer this more expensive version also for their sleeves.

Teddybear at POLYWEST

POLYWEST had made a donation of 500 € to action teddybear. Action Teddy helps children after an accident, they are getting their teddybear in the rescue car during transport to hospital. The teddybear helps the kids, giving some comfort, the bear stays with them all time, go everywhere they are going and will be a good friend after leaving the hospital.

We think a very good campaign to support, for this we step back from giving chrismas presents.

Now one of the teddybears is at home at POLYWEST.
