After very thorough development work, we are the only company in the world that has managed to manufacture the newest generation of fire-proof fabrics from 100% meta-aramid (NOMEX©) in a highly visible bright yellow and have uniquely managed to fulfil the following standards: EN ISO 20471, DIN EN 469, DIN EN 1149-5, DIN EN ISO 11612 and DIN EN 13034.

We have also managed to make other bright colours using 100% Protex Q (MAC/CO) so that we are even able to offer highly visible bright orange.
We have developed a few other options for this, which not only comply with EN ISO 20471, but also DIN EN ISO 11612, DIN EN 1149-5 and DIN EN ISO 11611.

Our patented innovation plays a fundamental role in improving the protection for life and limb anywhere where fire protection and high visibility clothing are required in dangerous situations.

Arc flash protection (according to DIN EN 61482-1-2, Class 2) through weight-saving fabrics for just 1-layer fabrication

StörlichtbogenschutzUsing a special fibre, we have developed a fabric, for which a patent has been applied for and which even meets the DIN EN 61482-1-2, Class 2 standard; when compared to other current alternatives, it saves weight and costs as it makes double-layer fabrication unnecessary.

Conveyor belts with an advertising message in supermarkets

Zoom Zoom Zoom
Our company has developed a new idea and launched a world first for the advertising sector – a new kind of product called PROMOTION BELT®. It has already attracted great interest from customers in more than 40 countries.
A patented, printed conveyor belt with a textile element has been created as a composite material with a special plastic, which, in contrast to traditional, unsightly black till belts, is not only scratch-resistant, hygienic and attractive, but also provides highly efficient advertising at the POS. Statistical assessments from surveys about this new kind of advertising medium have provided sensational results in terms of efficiency and the recall effect of advertising messages at till belts.
The overall concept has become so huge that we have set up an independent company based abroad to sell, organise and service PROMOTION-BELT®; the company consists of a network of partner firms.
