Gold for Rökona

We were able to convince the independent jury of this year’s Focus Open with the product group “WIRKUNGSVOLL”, which deals with the topic of combining and implementing sustainability and design with simultaneous fulfillment of automotive requirements!

We are very happy about this important award!

Jury Statement
“A material development that points in the right direction and shows that composite materials are by no means the only alternative. In this case the intelligent modification of processes is tied to the demand for contemporary design and circular practices. Although initially conceived for the automotive industry, the textiles are also intended to find their way into other areas.”

WIRKUNGSVOLL

High-quality metal optics, noble shine. This is an appearance that one does not necessarily expect when thinking about recycling and usage in automotive interiors.

With the „WIRKUNGSVOLL“ collection, which deals with precisely these contrary conditions, components are combined that deal with high-quality design, the advantages of warp-knitting technology and the very latest topic: sustainability.

However, this must not be implemented at the expense of contemporary design. Two striking warp-knitted fabrics for the automotive interior show, that this can be cobined.

Black Sterling – Doubleface with holestructure
Grey Sterling – Checkerboard-look

Both articles are 100% made of one material, so they are single-origin and recyclable. In addition, the problem of oxidation is excluded.
The “sterling” color underlines the high-quality appearance, which at the same time has a subtle, elegant effect and shows different reflections depending on the incidence of light on the fibers. The textiles show a strong reflection in extreme light, in weak light the surface can appear completely mat. Just like precious metals as raw material or highly polished.

These warp-knitted fabrics meets the necessary technical reqirements, e.g. as roller blinds.

MITWIRKEN

We from Rökona develop and produce technical textiles with sustainable approaches. One of them is the conscientious use of raw materials.

The “SEAQUAL INITIATIVE” certification is one of the best known that we have received for our textiles and thus make a contribution to the verifiable cleansing of the seas. The most current topic at the time is the recycling of existing raw materials. This also applies to polyester, which is probably one of the most interesting plastics for recycling. The development of the demand in the market has made a big step forward. This opens up new opportunities for us. We contribute to improving the climate by reprocessing existing, processed raw materials to freeing the oceans of plastic waste at once. Seaqual ensures a transparent process. As a medium-sized company, we also see our task on site in Baden-Württemberg. Our job: We have to reduce our carbon footprint.

With full conviction and pride, we present a Seaqual-certified textile that meets the technical requirements of mobility.

light
and thin

Today we are introducing our new sun shading textiles for glass roofs, rear and side windows and for use in privacy applications.

Our new products impress with their striking reduction in weight and thickness with similar or even better technical properties in terms of shading, look, feel and function.

In particular, the sagging has been noticeably reduced due to the reduced square weight. Options in unlaminated textile as well as dimout and blackout composites are available. Thinner and lighter shading textiles allow significant savings in material and installation space in the overall roller blind system. Our „Future Rollo“ is available as piece-dyed and spun-dyed fabric made of virgin and recycled material.

Under this premise, “Der große Preis des Mittelstands” was proclaimed in 2021.
We are happy to announce: We are nominated!
So we have secured the entry ticket to the network of the best.

“…Those who have been nominated here have already received an award of the first quality through this selection…”

DNP 2021 in
our showcase

At the end of last year we took part in the competition for the German Sustainability Award 2021 and made it to the finals with our RE:Space product group.

That is confirmation enough that we are on the right track with our focus on sustainably developed and produced technical textiles. Therefore we are particularly pleased that we can now assign the trophy a special place of honor in our showcase.
