Avoid disturbing noises inside the vehicle – thanks to narrow-textile solutions
The rule in automotive development is: the quieter a component works, the better. People inside a vehicle want to be able to hear each other, their music or maybe just the whirring of the car, but certainly no creaking or rattling – particularly in modern vehicles with alternative (and correspondingly quiet) drive systems in which even quiet noises can be heard.
Noise reduction inside the vehicle
Noise reduction: What can only be achieved in headphone technology by elaborate neutralisation of sound waves is much simpler – and more effective – in vehicle interiors. Since with JUMBO-Textil's textile components, a lot of noise can be avoided right from the outset: by using a tension band instead of a storage flap or an elastic cord instead of a tension spring ... There is no noise generated at all in areas where textile solutions are used instead of metal, plastic or rubber.
|Conventional components||Lighter and quieter textile solution|
|bowden cable||braided cord|
|tension spring||elastic cord|
|plastic cable holder||textile cable routing|
|release lever||release loop|
|plastic fixings||holding strap|
|storage tray||storage net|
|storage flap||tensioning strap / holding strap|
|solid rubber||elastic narrow textiles|
|spring-loaded retaining elements||narrow-textile components|
An additional advantage of textile materials – especially for climate-friendly vehicles of the future: their light weight. Our high-tech textiles are considerably lighter than conventional components. And if we combine them with other components, it is always with lightweight plastic or light metal components.
