OUR QUALITY PROCESS
For any specific request for process or usage optimisation, the business expertise of its consulting teams is systematically combined with the textile expertise of its engineers to audit the need:
Subrenat identifies and traces all your products at each stage of the manufacturing process, from the reception of the raw materials to the delivery of the finished product
- The Quality department controls the manufacture of your textiles during and after the factory, this control certificate is established directly in the internal laboratory of Subrenat
- The quality of service and production of all the trades is regularly controlled, recorded and evaluated on the most appropriate quantitative and qualitative criteria
- Our quality approach continues with after-sales follow-up to evaluate your experience, answer any questions, and support you in your new needs
- Audits are regularly carried out by the internal quality department and external certification control bodies to confirm the conformity of processes and identify areas for improvement
LABELS AND CERTIFICATIONS
Subrenat's textile products benefit from labels and certifications that attest to their quality.
Our group continuously monitors, develops and improves all its manufacturing and development activities through internal and external audited processes and procedures.
The CE mark thus demonstrates the conformity of Subrenat textiles with European directives.
The NF certification guarantees tested, proven, high-performance and reliable textile products and services that comply with the requirements defined by the standards and needs of the market.
Even once certified, the services or products, as well as their manufacturing sites, are regularly checked by independent bodies specialised in the sector to guarantee the same level of quality, on a consistent basis.
Subrenat offers many other labels, certifications and ISO standards that guarantee the quality of its products: OEKO-Tex, GOTS, GRS, FDA ... issued by the most demanding organisations: Reach, the US and EU FDA, Ecocert, CEN, NF, IFTH, Centexbel, CREPIM, etc.
To ensure continuous monitoring and quality throughout the production chain and thus guarantee its customers a textile that meets the required technical characteristics, Subrenat has an internal control and testing laboratory, allowing the issue of conformity certificates at each stage of production.
Tri-axial, cutting (mechanical or laser), binocular magnifier, perforating machine, sieving machine, oven... Subrenat's laboratory is equipped with high-tech machines allowing specific tests to be carried out and tailor-made creations to be made according to the application of the textile, from the research and development phase to the control of the finished product.
Testing and quality control
To ensure the overall quality of its textiles, Subrenat carries out numerous tests and controls on raw materials and finished products.
During the production phase, the laboratory performs various tests on the finished textiles to ensure the integrity of the product with respect to the product specifications required by the customer:
- Chemical tests (e.g. calculation of fat content or extractable residue content)
- Physical and mechanical property tests (e.g. weighing, diameter, strength, tension, diameter, opening, geometry, etc.)
- Geotextile specific tests (dynamic perforation, static perforation, filtration through the media, textile ageing, tri-axial traction, damage)
Innovation and the constant search for performance have always been part of Subrenat's DNA.
In addition to enabling our group to anticipate and respond to the needs of our customers for several decades, innovation is a permanent added value in the development of new processes, products and textiles that perform better and are more sustainable in the design of our customised solutions.
Currently, X engineers and X companies actively contribute to our Research & Development process.
WePlanet : our commitment for environment
The environment and social issues are core levers of our innovation policy.
Energy management, waste management, widening the range of eco-designed products: to simplify the life of our customers thanks to an offer of eco-designed products and services, to invent together channels with less impact, we have developed the WePlanet collaborative programme, an international and cross-industry initiative for the development of a more sustainable and environmentally friendly textile industry.
A collaborative program
WePlanet is a dynamic program, in constant co-construction with our customers, teams and partners. Traceability of materials, concrete actions for the environment, research into innovative solutions: it involves our suppliers from all over the world, in France, Europe and internationally, and commits us together to a common vision through the signing of our ethical charter and the implementation of concrete actions.
We would be happy to embark on our programme, sharing your criticisms, ideas and expectations, in order to act hand in hand for the Planet!
Our goals with WePlanet :
- Reducing the environmental impact of our activities
- Containing global warming
- Preserving biodiversity
- Continuously improve the eco-design of our products and services
- Explore possibilities for improving materials, packaging, transport and end-of-life management
- Support you in better managing the end of life of textile products (recycling, reuse, etc.)
- Working together in a collective intelligence approach to transform the sectors
She talks about it
“I run a gite on the Camino de Compostela, in Aumont-Aubrac. For two years, I washed my sheets every day between each hiker.
It took me a lot of time but above all a lot of energy, it was hell! Today, with Easytex disposable sheets and pillow protectors and an anti-bedbug cover, I have found the ideal solution for the way I work and, above all, for customer hygiene! This year I will use the Easytex collection service for the first time to limit my waste."
