Eurokeder is a high-end keder product perfect for applications where maximum durability is desired.
In rental structures especially, the keder will generally wear faster than the fabric, necessitating unsightly repairs or expensive replacements.
This issue can be minimized by using a higher quality keder. Though the upfront cost is a little higher, the long-term savings of doing less repairs over a panel’s lifetime makes it an attractive choice.

Eurokeder offers three distinct advantages over typical keders found in the North American market:
- The use of 2200 DTEX (2000 Denier) fibers, twice the strength of what is typical, allows for less wear and better sliding performance
- Eurokeder is RF (radio frequency) welded, yielding a more aesthetic and uniform product. Fabric panels can be made with smaller tolerances on the width dimension keder-to-keder. This allows a tighter panel which looks better and moves less in the wind
- Eurokeder is plain woven. Panama weave uses two threads woven in each direction, a cost effective way of increasing strength with a standard thread. It tends to fray more. Eurokeder instead utilizes the higher thread weight in plain weave for a tighter weave with the same or higher strength.
Eurokeder is manufactured in Europe by Coatex, a division of Sioen industries, and used by many clearspan manufacturers in Europe.
Keder is a manufactured rope edge, made from a flexible core surrounded by fabric. The keder fabric is coated on the inside only. This makes the keder weldable to regular PVC coated fabrics. The outside of the keder fabric is uncoated, with the polyester fibers exposed. The exposed fibers allow keder to slide better in aluminum keder extrusions compared to how coated fabrics would slide.
Typical keder applications include clearspan rental tents, permanent frame-supported fabric structures, camping tents, RV shade panels, banners, industrial curtains, greenhouses and many other.
The main advantage of keder for use in fabric structures is the continuous connection it allows between a piece of fabric and frame. This allows for a faster install, a safer install and a better load distribution compared with other methods.
