“Zip” fasteners in Unico awnings and marquees
All the “zip” fasteners used in UNICO marquees are made in spiral way. Their advantage is that teeth can not be broken in this type of “zip” fasteners. This is the main difference from “zip” fasteners with separate teeth, which can be broken under stress.
“Zip” fasteners serve for shrinking of the cloth parts with the help of two closing chains, which enter into each other, when passing through the runner. There are two types of locks: tractor and spiral “zip” fasteners.
