Form follows function
Form follows function – the famous guiding principle of product design also applies to textile technology: the function that a textile needs to fulfil drives its form. Particularly in the case of technical textiles, which are required in industry due to their specific functions and properties, it is important to choose the right form. For many applications this is a narrow form. After all, narrow textiles are not the small, thin siblings of wide fabrics and woven fabric. They are produced as independent textile-technical products on special braiding, warp knitting and weaving machines. And they come with unique properties – e.g., in terms of elasticity, load capacity or configurability. They are often the decisive detail that ensures that a rucksack can be closed, a piece of luggage safely stowed, a car seat adjusted, that a bandage provides support, a protective glove offers safety, and much more.
Decisive advantages of narrow textiles compared to wide fabrics:
- Individual widths with stable edge structures
- No measuring, no cutting
- Specific physical characteristics
- Also for the smallest of packaging spaces and application areas
- Versatile and complex geometries and structures
- Very high force and elongation properties even in a compact structure
