Gold for spring technology
Heico Fasteners as been awarded the FIRA Gold product certification for its non-rust range of Blacquer Zig-Zag springs.
Heico uses nano technology to produce a fully coated spring.
‘We are proud to be the first distributor in the UK to achieve this prestigious award. This new product is unique and offers superior corrosion resistance that cannot be matched by any other springs available in the UK furniture industry and we believe it is a real game changer in the market. The Blacquer springs use a unique environmentally-friendly coating that is fully elastic, meaning no reduction in corrosion protection even under the strain of continuous use, and with no oily residue the springs are far cleaner to use in production than existing alternatives, adding real benefits for our customers,’ says Dave Read, Heico general manager.
