Technical and Industrial Textiles
Specialist Demands. Specialist Solutions.
Much in the industrial textiles world has changed since Hainsworth began textile manufacture, but one thing that hasn’t is our ability to meet the textile needs of the most demanding of textile using customers. As a result, Hainsworth has built up a body of technical textile knowledge, as well as an excellent reputation as a textile manufacturer and customer base, establishing a large and varied customer base within all areas of technical textiles and industrial fabrics. This textile expertise has been extended to include technical fibres for use in protective fabrics, industrial fabrics and laundry products.
Through innovation, textile market knowledge, proven expertise as textile manufacturers and specialised textile machinery, customers have chosen Hainsworth time and again to develop customised textile products for their specific fabric requirements.
Meeting specialist textile demands requires a high level of experience and expertise in manufacturing textiles. Hainsworth uses its skills and experience of fabrics, combined with an inherent understanding of how our textile products are used, to manufacture a unique range of technical textiles manufactured from wool and synthetic fibres.
United Biscuits, one of the world’s leading branded snack businesses, use woollen industrial fabrics from Hainsworth on its conveyors as part of the biscuit manufacturing process. Our technical fabrics are used internationally within laboratory testing equipment and to produce the finest prints for etching press artists.
As textile manufacturers, these and other technical textiles designed and manufactured by Hainsworth are dyed, heat-set, raised, chemically treated, coated or converted for a range of uses in printing, cleaning, laundry, polishing, food production and other technical, industrial and manufacturing processes.
The protective quality of our technical textiles ensures critical protection where it’s needed most - on the front line. We supply protective cloth to fire services across the world including those in London, Madrid, Copenhagen and Boston. Hainsworth has supplied textiles that not only exceed customer expectations but have also delivered step-change textile technology.
Quality control processes and textile manufacturing tolerances ensure Hainsworth continues to be the supplier of choice to leading piano and woodwind instrument manufacturers, including Renner, Steinway and Samick. The technical experience of our staff and their unrivalled understanding of how textiles perform mean customers are expertly guided and advised on the best textile solution. Our textile manufacturing skills ensure consistent adherence to the strictest specifications. Hainsworth can weave fabrics to widths of 4.20 metres and finish fabric up to a thickness of 8mm, to a tolerance of +/-0.05mm.
As the home of technical textiles, there is no better place to get advice on, and products for, commercial laundering. Hainsworth is the leading supplier of press, industrial ironer and cabinet clothing for the laundry and garment manufacturing industries worldwide, supplying luxury hotels, hospitals, commercial laundries, dry-cleaners, prisons and nursing homes.
Our textiles appear in places you would never expect; from the smoothest action of a piano key, the crispest finish of linen sheets, the cleaning of trains to the provision of optimum heat and fire protection for firefighting, police and military personnel.
The specialist textile knowledge of our staff coupled with the understanding of our customers’ manufacturing processes ensures that with Hainsworth, the possibilities are endless.
