 1 1/2" X 36" SINGLE PLY SKIRTING LEATHER OFF BILLET
             



STANDARDS AND PRACTICES:  While single ply off billets are common in the industry, as a matter of policy and safety, ASMA recommends that single ply leather off billets not be used.   It has been noted that the single ply leather off billets have a tendency to have a high failure rate.  If single ply leather off billets are to be used it is recommended that they be made of heavy ( 13/14 oz+ ) skirting leather.
