Strong products & optimum protection Fastening Systems for the production of masks and protective equipment

Wide range of applications

Also in systemically important sectors

Easy handling, a long service life and, above all, reliable protection – products for medical use have always had to meet high standards.
Requirements that our Snaps and innovative Fastening Systems have been meeting since before the coronavirus crisis.
This experience now makes us your strong partner for all system-relevant industries: from healthcare and the food industry to the police and fire department.
Our Snaps are characterized by an absolutely reliable Fastener.
They are also particularly resistant to external influences such as regular industrial cleaning and sterilization.
At the same time, they are kind to the skin.
They are therefore suitable for use with all standard protective masks, medical couches and surgical gowns.
Their ease of use also significantly reduces the strain on users in their everyday work.
You can find more practical closure solutions here: Zippers from YKK DEUTSCHLAND.

  • Protective masks made of fabric or with a plastic visor
  • Surgical gowns
  • Protective clothing
