The various types of zippers and how to use them best

2022-11-25
  • In our upholstery shop we use zippers a lot. But how much do we actually know about the various types available and their best uses?


    Coil Zipper


    Coil zippers are an excellent choice for projects that involve curves, as they are more flexible and versatile than marine zippers. In addition to being fire-resistant, they are also waterproof and corrosion-resistant. However, they are not recommended for use at sea because the teeth are sewn into the zip ties.

    Coil zippers are available in various sizes for different applications:


    No.4.5 Coil Zipper - for furniture, cushions and purses

    Size 5 Coil Zipper - For Duffle Bags, Backpacks, Jackets

    10 Gauge Coil Zipper - For Jeep Roofs, Convertible Tops, Boat Covers, Tents.



    Separate Zipper


    Jacket zippers, also known as breakaway zippers, are most commonly used on jackets, vests, and other garments such as boat covers and marine shells. They are called breakaway zippers because the two lengths of tape can be completely separated when the zipper is fully undone.


    They have been manufactured in lengths ranging from 24 inches to 120 inches. These zippers usually have two pulls that make it easy to open or close them from each side of the enclosure.



    Aluminum Zipper


    Aluminum zippers are often used on trousers and business attire, but they are also great for home items. Because metals oxidize, they are not recommended for upholstery that will be exposed to the elements.



    What size zipper do you need?


    Now that you know more about damaged zippers, you may be persuaded to replace damaged zippers. But how do you determine the right size?


    The size of the zipper can be easily determined. Just close the teeth of the old zipper, lock it together, and use a ruler, tape measure, or better yet, measure the width in millimeters of the teeth on the closed zipper.

    A 10mm zipper would be a #10 zipper because the size matches the size of zipper you need.
