ZIPPERS PER FUNCTIONS

How much do we know about the zippers which provide utility and security for our lives? Naturally we only think about a single type of zippers upon hearing the word zipper. As users who are not directly involved in the industry, we know very little about the structures and functions of zippers.

ZIPPERS PER FUNCTIONS

As a professionally involved producer since the year of 1992, we would like to share the information and opinions of Fim Fermuar in this article. Zippers which are a part of almost every clothing we have, have various types for their usage areas. In short, zippers are divided among themselves per their functionality as follows:

Closed end (C) Zippers: Closed end zippers are generally used for skirts, pants, bags and boots. Zipper lines can be completely separated from each other. They are zipped and unzipped by the slider, bottom box and needle mechanism.

Open End: Lines of a open end zipper can be completely separated from each other. They are zipped and unzipped by the slider, bottom box and needle mechanism. These types of zippers are generally used for jackets and coats.

O Model Double Sided:
O type delrin zippers with double slider bottoms, include two sliders. When O type delrin zippers with double sliders are zipped, sliders are located head-to-head and are zipped and unzipped towards the inside.

X Model Double Sided:
X type delrin zippers with closed end slider bottoms, include two sliders. When X type delrin zippers with double sliders are zipped, sliders are located back-to-back and are zipped and unzipped towards the outside.

We briefly mentioned these types. The models we stated above are usually named after the zipping and unzipping position of the zipper.
