What sets Atlas 46 products apart from everything else? It is our high standards we hold every product to, from the quality and durability of the raw goods used to hand craft our products, to the sewing techniques used to make sure our product will last for years to come through some of the toughest working conditions.
1000D CORDURA® Nylon
Used in all of our pouches and bags due to it being one of the most abrasion resistant fabrics on the market.
330D CORDURA® Nylon
All though this is a lighter weight, the abrasion resistance of this fabric is truly remarkable. We use this as reinforcement on our Concord work shorts and pants for greater freedom of movement while still offering durability.
Mount Vernon Mills 88/12 Cotton Nylon Blend
Used in our Concord Work Shorts and Pants, the 88% cotton allows breath-ability and stretch to provide comfort on the work site, while the 12% Nylon allows the fabric to have a strong and durable inner structure so the material will hold up for many different jobs.
Diversitex 75/25 Cotton Nylon Blend
This fabric is used for our Forge Slick Side, and Lincoln Work Pants and Shorts. The 75% Cotton allows the pants to breath while the 25% Nylon gives the material rigidity and strength.
Dependable, breathable and flexible cushioning material that adds long-lasting performance and comfort. Whether you need moisture management, antimicrobial protection, cushioning or high impact absorbing performance, enhancing our Heavy Duty Knee Pads with PORON®.
This is the most common stitch we use and it is done with a single needle. This stitch appears on basically every product we manufacture. This stitch is used to attach different panels of fabric together. What makes this stitch strong is that even if a single stitch is broken it will not unravel the entire length of the seam.
Used at the beginning and end of any seam to reinforce the stitch it is accomplished by backtracking over the stitch it self to double the amount of stitches at both ends of the seam which are typically stress points.
Reinforce any point on an item that is going to have constant stress on that stitch. It is accomplished by making a stitch at a desired length then zig zagging back and forth over the stitch effectively locking it in.
Triple Chain Stitch
This stitch is used on the inseam of most of our apparel to join the front and rear panels together. The reason we use this stitch is do to the fact that three different stitches would have to fail in order for the panels to come apart which is highly unlikely. Most apparel companies only use a double chain stitch. We want our apparel to last our customers for years to come.
Stitches on the binding of all of our products. The binding wraps around the raw edge of any material panels to give it a clean look as well as reinforce the panels itself. We use the double needle to add extra strength to the outside edge of our products.
Optimized Stitch Patterns
We use these types of stitches to add extra strength and reinforce handle or attachment points on our products you will be able to recognize these stitches by a box with an X running through to the corners of the box. This style of stitch allows for the surface area of the reinforcement to be greater and spread the stress on the fabric out.
#70 Nylon Based Thread
The reason we use such a strong thread is because the weakest points of most sewn goods are the seams, that is why we use this thread to reinforce the seams and we also only use the strongest stitching techniques which is covered in the video below.
