From pool covers to fishing nets, YKK North and Central America Group has many fastening solutions for industrial applications. YKK’s large size zippers offer high strength and durability in a closure. Our high strength buckles also are available to hold down just about anything.

YKK offers varying degrees of water and air resistance zippers. Airtight/Watertight zippers provide solutions in situations where access is needed, but also where an effective barrier between water, gases, chemicals, liquids, and/or other substances is important. For example, compartments in shipping, aircraft, or civil engineering works, and covers over fermentation vats and water stores are excellent places for a YKK® Airtight/Watertight zipper. Of course, survival suits, including dry suits, firefighter suits, and chemical suits are also ideal candidates for these zippers.
