Glodina Marathon Snag Proof Towel

Glodina Marathon™ Snag Proof™ towels are developed exclusively for the hospitality and health care industry.

What makes the Glodina Marathon™ Snag Proof™ towel unique?

Glodina Black Label Marathon LabelGlodina Marathon™ Snag proof™ towels have proved they can last the distance. These pure cotton knitted towels are made to outlast conventional woven towels and have been specially designed to help reduce towel-laundering costs; in particular, they will reduce energy consumption and thus reduce energy bills saving you money in the long run. To make them the ideal towel for commercial and industrial use, they’re manufactured to withstand more than 200 commercial/industrial washes. Thanks to a technological innovation, a very special construction has been developed to give the towel unique snag resistant and quick drying characteristics.

How is it made?

The towels are knitted as opposed to the traditional method of weaving them. By this method every individual loop is knotted into the base construction of the towel, thereby preventing the loops from coming loose or being pulled (Hence the term “Snag Proof”). This is a long and expensive process, but second to none when comparing advantages with woven towels. The next step is to use polyester in the base of the towel; polyester has quick drying properties, which make it perfect for towels and the inherent energy saving characteristics in the laundering process.

How is this process different to woven towels?

Individual loops cannot be knotted into the base of woven towels because of the technology and the machine capability. So, because the loops cannot be knotted it now rules out the use of a polyester base as there would be nothing holding in the loops to prevent them pulling loose, and the towel would fall to pieces very quickly. Any supplier which advocates that they have polyester in their woven towels are in fact referring to a blend whereby they mix polyester with the cotton fibres, this is used to strengthen the yarn for the weaving process which helps reduce breakages on the machines and speeds up production and improves productivity. Note: Woven towels with a polyblend DO NOT DISPLAY QUICK DRYING OR SNAG PROOF™ CHARACTERISTICS, IT IS MERELY AN ADVANTAGE FOR THE PRODUCTION PROCESS AND HAS NO END USER BENEFITS.

Is Polyester problematic?

Absolutely not! The polyester in the Glodina Marathon™ Snag Proof™ towel does not come into contact with the user as it is hidden in the base of the towel. The only fibres that come in contact with your skin are 100% cotton.

g/m² : Calculated by taking a 10cm² cutting of pile area of the towel. This is the traditional method used in South Africa by all manufacturers and retailers and is the preferred SABS method.

gsm: Calculated by dividing the weight of a unit by its exact dimensions. This is the universally used unit of measurement. The difference between g/m² and gsm is roughly 10%.
