Schacht Double Back Beam for Standard Looms
Schacht floor looms can be fitted with a double back beam. A double back beam is a second beam that is attached behind the first beam and has a separate brake drum and brake release. The main purpose of using two beams is so that two warps can be separately tensioned. This can be useful if, for example, you wanted to weave a double weave fabric where one layer weaves longer than the other. In order to do this easily, you need to beam one layer on one beam and the other on the other beam and this keeps the length of the two layers separate from one another.
If you would like to order a double back beam for an existing Schacht Standard loom then please let us know the serial number of your loom. Older looms will require a slightly different beam to ensure a correct fit.
Prices shown are for the Maple version - please contact us for prices for the back beams in Cherry wood.
