Standards and Directives

How to be sure that your garment will meet all the promises you gave your client?

Non allergic? Environmentally safe? Strong enough? Produced according to international zipper standards?

We pay close attention to detail to make sure that promises to our business partners are kept. SALMI adheres to zip fastener standards and tests when specifying or developing the quality of the zip fastener. The right choice of detail ensures quality.

The number of claims as a criterion of consistent quality

A good means to evaluate the consistency in the quality of the zip fasteners throughout the season is to systemati­cally collect all the claims concerning the zip fasteners during and after the season.
