How it all started, a bit of history about ... zippers!
The history of zippers goes back over 100 years. Their trailblazer was the Swedish engineer Gideon Sundback, who invented the lock in 1913, and patented his idea in 1917. At the beginning, they were mainly used for flight suits.The greatest popularity of the zipper fell in the 1920s and 1930s. Since then, the types of zipper fasteners and their applications have undergone many changes. Zippers are special mechanisms used to connect or disconnect two pieces of fabric. They are used as decorative and functional elements in many products. Our assortment includes metal zippers and zippers made of plastic, among others coil zippers and molded zippers. Additionally, we offer splash-proof metal zipper tapes as well as auto lock (with a stop) and non-lock (without a stop).
The zipper - how does it work?
All the magic of the zipper lies in its teeth! The zipper consists of two rows of teeth placed on the tapes. There are gaps between them. The slider, also called a slide fastener, has a Y-shaped channel in the middle. It connects or disconnects the teeth. The channel at the base is narrower, so it brings the teeth closer together in such a way that the first teeth end up between the second teeth. However, when the slider is moved in the opposite direction, the triangular wedge will push the particles away from each other. Then the lock is open. Of course, for the correct functioning of the zipper, you need blocking elements at the top and bottom of the zipper (e.g. in flies). In the open end zippers, one row of the teeth can be pulled out of the lower locking part. We recommend this type of zippers for jackets and sweatshirts.
Types of zippers - coil, molded, metal, open-end and closed-end
Zippers are a very practical element in many different products. Zippers can be divided, according to the type of linking chain, into coil zippers and molded zippers. Moreover, the sliders can have several variants. Open-end zippers allow you to open and close the zipper freely. However, in close-end zippers, one side was machine-finished. This type of zippers is used, for example, in flies, pencil cases or vanity cases. At the Berotex warehouse, you can buy molded, coil, open-end and closed-end zippers. Available in a variety of colors.
