The original Fagas™ strap for modern classics

The original Fagas rubber straps with molded-in metal hooks are used as webbing in classic chairs and sofas.

The popular pieces of furniture are typically from the end of the 1940s to the middle of the 1970s. They were designed by famous Danish designers such as Arne Wahl Iversen, Hans Wegner and Ib Kofod-Larsen but also produced by Swedish manufacturers like DUX (Folke Olsson), OPE-möbler a.o.

The chairs are sold throughout the world − The "Scandinavian Modern Classics" are extremely popular in the UK, USA, Asia and the Middle East.

Fagas strap has similarly been produced since the beginning of the 1950's and is an original part of those popular seating furniture. A durable and properly composed quality rubber gives the chairs exactly the right comfort.

Fagas™ straps are still in production − at Betech

Originally, the straps were produced at J.M. Birking & Co which was a Copenhagen rubber factory founded back in 1931. This is why many know the rubber straps under the name of "J.M. Birking", imprinted on the webbing in addition to the product brand "fagas".

In 1985, J.M. Birking & Co. was acquired by Codan Gummi A/S − the internationally recognized Danish  manufacturer of rubber products − which changed name to Codan Tech and now has become Betech A/S.

Today, Betech still produces the Fagas™ straps accurately from the same recipe and method as at the time the furniture was new.

Therefore, seating comfort and quality experience is brought back into the old furniture by installing new rubber straps - in respect of the original craftsmanship and design.
