Supreme supplier of fire retardant fabrics
The history of Daletec started in 1879, when the first textile mill was founded between steep mountains on the Norwegian west coast. The factory soon became the largest textile enterprise in Norway, with a large range of products.
In the seventies the Norwegian North Sea adventure started, when the trial drilling for oil was successful. This break through led to demands for garments suitable for the rough weather conditions offshore, and with the experience Daletec had as a textile mill it was natural to start working on these challenges. During the past three decades, the company has built up a unique knowledge within how to develop and produce fire retarding fabric.
Today, Daletec is one of the most well-known producers of flame retardant fabric in the world, with customers in more than 40 countries throughout all continents. With the unique technical knowledge Daletec is able to offer both fabrics with a large range of useful properties, as well as technical assistance when needed.
The product range includes products in cotton and cotton/polyester blends which are water repellent, antistatic, high visible and which resists sparks and molten metal. The combination of these properties and hundreds of colours gives Daletec an advantage very useful in order to keep the lead as technical superior.
