Our highly durable and flexible keder cord is an ideal solution for reinforcing fabric panels on trailers, tarpaulins, tents and other temporary canvas structures. It can also be used for numerous other applications.
Keder Cord Application Uses
The manufacturing and installation of fabric structures such as tents, awnings, and outdoor advertising displays use Keder cord, also known as Keder rope. A fabric or vinyl sleeve with this cord or rope sewn inside allows for a secure attachment to a track or channel system.
Used in Large Fabric Structures
Large-scale fabric structures such as event tents, temporary buildings, and exhibition stands commonly use the Keder cord system in their construction. The manufacture of smaller-scale fabric products such as awnings, canopies, and banners also uses the system.
Creates a Tight and Secure Seal
Keder cord is essential for creating a tight and secure seal between the fabric structure and the supporting frame or structure. A groove or track, which is attached to the frame or structure, is where the cord is designed to slide into. Once in place, the fabric is then secured to the cord using various methods, such as sewing or heat sealing. This creates a waterproof and wind-resistant barrier.
Tough and Resilient
This type of cord has tough properties that make it an ideal solution for numerous tensile purposes. Many different types of canvas structures can use it in conjunction where tensile strength is paramount. Trailers, containers, tarpaulins, awnings, canopies, and even boat sails commonly use it to close and reinforce fabric.
What is Keder Cord Also Known As?
Keder cord is known by several names depending on the function and industry in which it is being used. It is also known as ‘bead’, ‘beading’, ‘piping’, ‘welt’, or ‘welting’.
Flexible and Secure
One of its primary advantages is its ability to provide a flexible and secure attachment method for fabric structures. Adjusting the cord to accommodate changes in the structure’s size or shape is easy, allowing for a perfect fit. This versatility makes it a popular choice for use in a wide range of applications.
High Level of Durability
Another key benefit of Keder cord is its durability. High-strength materials such as polyester or vinyl typically make the cord, which can withstand exposure to harsh weather conditions, UV radiation, and other environmental factors. This makes it an ideal choice for outdoor structures that need to withstand the elements over an extended period.
Enhance Aesthetic Appeal
Keder cord can enhance the aesthetic appeal of a fabric structure in addition to providing functional benefits. The cord can match the color of the fabric to create a seamless and professional finish. This is particularly important for applications such as advertising displays, where the visual impact of the structure is a key consideration.
Lengths and Colors:
Our Keder cord is available in different diameters ranging from 2mm to 25mm, and all sizes are readily available in a range of different colors and lengths.
Keder Cord Overall
Overall, this cord is an essential component of many fabric structures, providing a flexible, secure, and durable attachment method. Whether used in the construction of large-scale event structures or smaller-scale awnings and banners, Keder cord offers a range of benefits that make it a popular choice for designers, manufacturers, and installers of fabric products.
