Zippers, Zipper Chain

Types of Zippers We Offer                                     

  • Coil: These zippers form the bulk of the sales of zippers world-wide - the classic zipper. If you look closely at these zippers, you will notice that the slider runs on two coils on each side. The "teeth" on this zipper are coils.
  • Metallic Zippers: These zippers are the zippers we see in jeans today. The teeth are not a coil - they are individual pieces of metal moulded into shape and set on the zipper tape at precise uniform intervals. Our Aluminum zipper 4-200 and 5-100 are this type.
  • Plastic Moulded: These zippers are just like metallic zippers - but the teeth are plastic instead of metal. This is because the plastic can be dyed to the color of the garment - and looks natural. These are usually seen in marine canvas, jackets and sleeping bags and backpacks.

    Separating or Open Ended Zippers
    : These zippers use a "box and pin" mechanism to lock the two side of the zipper into place. Used where you want the materials to come completly apart such as a jacket. Separating zippers are bought in different lengths and can be cut down to the exact size needed. Open Ended Zippers can be of any of the above specified types
