January 1st meant the launch of our new range of ECO pins, used to attach adjacent frames at the top and bottom, together with the ECO+ finishing and new type of hook and loop tape.
These pins no longer are chromium plated, but are manufactured in a Zamak alloy (an acronym for the Dutch words for Zinc, Aluminium, Magnesium and Copper). The environmental impact of this procedure is significantly smaller than when applying a chromium layer: it reduces carbon emissions by up to 1/8 and nearly halves the weight of the pins.
Moreover, their special design makes them perfectly stackable, so they take up less space when stored or transported.
