Don't really know WV. My main focus was that these are for 1" strap. The same time I was using these I was also using a WBBB with the Bison Design cinch buckles. The Bison version was for a wider strap, maybe 1-1/4 or 1-1/2" and with the 1" strap it wasn't secure and did damage to the strap.

IOW, they aren't sourcing welded parts which may have good welds, maybe not?
(I know, you are not morally or legally responsible for their failures in their stuff, etc, etc.)
On Rope 1 brands themselves as being "for the serious rope user" and the cinch buckle page
specifically states "rated for life support." That's good enough for me.
Downside is they're a tad heavy but that's not a concern to the original poster and I like being safe too.
