Care, disclaimer & warranty

BANDFIT resistance bands are made from high quality latex rubber.  They have a multi-layered latex construction which helps prevent the likelihood of breakages that can be experienced with cheaper single layer single bonding point Resistance Bands. Multi-layering will present shearing when nicked rather than complete failure which also adds a safety element to using resistance bands. All BANDFIT resistance bands are BS EN ISO 9001:2008 and BS EN ISO 13485:2003 quality assured and come with a 1 year “sensible use” warranty.

BANDFIT Resistance Bands are not just for powerlifting and weightlifting. They can be used for:

  • Jumping 
  • Plyometrics
  • Aerobics
  • Stretching
  • Flexibility exercises
  • General conditioning
  • Prehabilitation
  • Rehabilitation
  • Glute Activation Work

All BANDFIT resistance bands are made from pure rubber latex, this increases durability, strength and memory providing a more cost efficient product that will last longer than many others on the market. Latex is an organic material, which will degrade over time. Sharp edges will cut into the material and once weakened they will break easily. Overstretching all, or part of the band by applying too much load will weak en the material and once that happens they will break more easily.

To help avoid injury and prolong the life of your bands:

ALWAYS

  • Check the bands for any signs of excessive wear or damage.
  • Attach the bands appropriately for their intended use, ensuring they are safely secured away from edges.
  • Store the bands out of direct sunlight, away from chemicals or sharp objects and not under tension. 

NEVER

  • Use a band that has frayed edges or small tears. 
  • Wrap the bands around any body part, as this may lead to a serious injury.
  • Attach the bands where they may become damaged or are exposed to excessive wear.
  • Overload the bands beyond their recommended capacity (see chart).
