Activo Basic

THE PRONGED SNAP SYSTEM MADE OF BRASS

This snap fastening system, also known as Knipper®, is designed to be especially secure and limit damage to fabrics. The five prongs anchor themselves in the material, without causing damage. ACTIVO is particularly suited to stretchy materials and  knitwear, baby clothes, underwear and sportswear, as well as use in more technical contexts.

Its flat look, light weight and smooth fastening make it a good choice for active uses. Depending on the intended use, the individual system components can be combined in different ways. For more demanding requirements like industrial laundry, this system is available in stainless steel, too (see separate ACTIVO PROTECT S catalogue).

FUNCTIONALITY

For ACTIVO an action is performed by way of the divided spring of the socket opening outward when the stud is inserted.

APPLICATION DETAILS

• Material types and thicknesses:
For the correct selection of the suitable ACTIVO system it is important to determine the type of material to be used for your garment. The permitted material thickness is obtained from the number of layers on top of each other as well as from their structure an the attachment position. The material thickness is measured with a special  micrometer. Please contact us about this and send us an example of the textile to be used.

• Recommended design / selection of correct KNIPPER attaching position
When selecting the position for attaching the Knipper to the garment make sure that different thicknesses of fabric layers are avoided. Sufficient band width (incl. seams) needs to be provided to allow for safe anchoring of the selected press fastener system and to avoid attaching on seams.

For multiple fabric layers it is recommended to provide a seam directly besides the attached ACTIVO system. This serves to prevent displacement of the fabric layers lying on top of each.

Also avoid overlapping material (uneven fabric layers) in a band or press fastener position. To compensate for thin materials/fabric layers in a band it is recommended to use a reinforcing tape. To prevent the ACTIVO system from being separated from a garment with reduced fabric strength a reinforcing tape at the bands is strongly recommended.

If the above criteria for selecting the proper attaching position are not taken into account defective rivets may occur (deflected prongs).
