Cleaning Textiles-sustainable and efficient

Cleaning Textiles-sustainable and efficient

For the professional cleaning of buildings as well as for high quality cleaning products, the environment is the main priority. For many textiles the use of chemicals & cleaners can be reduced based on the textile construction. Eschler Textil is still a leader when it comes to perfectly matched high-performance textiles for a wide variety of cleaning needs. Even the high requirements for a clean room can be fulfilled with Eschler Textil cleaning textiles.

Warp knit velour

Warp knit velour

In most bandages as well as in orthotics you will find the versatile velour developed and produced by Eschler Textil. Through years of experience at all stages of processing, it is possible to develop application specific solutions together with the customer. Depending on requirements, parameters such as peel an shear forces, elasticity and material selection vary.

3D-innovative spacer fabrics

3D-innovative spacer fabrics

At Eschler Textile 3D textiles are created with the most diverse structures both on the two outer sides of the product as well as inside. The connecting threads between the two product surfaces, so-called pile layer is interrupted e.g. at defined locations, so that check or stripe optics arise. Elastic spacer qualities are also part of the assortment and can be used in flexible, bi-elastic 3D bandages.

News & Innovations

Smart Textiles 

Smart Textiles are a combination of electronics, software and textiles. This extraordinary combination creates new textile products that can heat or shine. While integrating sensors, textiles can interact with their environment.

At Eschler we develop customized Smart Textiles based on warp knitted fabrics and focus on the fields of lighting, heating and sensors.

The latest development is a smart wall system that can create an atmospheric ambience. The intelligent layer structure of the textile wall system causes a homogeneous distribution of the originally punctual LED light source, additionally the overall structure of the wall system optimizes the interior acoustics.

In close collaboration with our mother company Schoeller Textil AG we developed a textile heating system. The material is designed by the meter an can be individually tailored and contacted.

Eschler textile sensors can be used for the detection of humidity and pressure.
