400 GSM & 450 GSM
These 400 gsm & 450 gsm towels are part of our budget range of towels. Ideal for those looking at the cheaper end of the market. They are all made from 100% cotton and weighing between 400 gsm & 450 gsm. The towels are soft, durable and fast drying. These are perfect for institutions such as hotels, hospitals, schools, spas, gyms and the likes. If your looking for a heavier towel why not try our 500 GSM range.
Ring spun spinning method for durable and soft towels
Our institutional towels are manufactured using the ring spun process. The ring spun process uses a combing machine (which is not the case in open end) which paralyses the fibres, removing shorter and weaker lengths. This creates a more uniform yarn. These yarns are then blended at the carded sliver stage and are twisted in a helix (S or Z direction) to create cohesion and strength. There are up to 20 turns in each inch of ring spun yarn. The open end process avoids these important and costly procedures which is why we use ring spun cotton as opposed to open end.
Manufactured ourself using the finest cotton
Our towels are a long standing favourite with our customers. That's because we manufacture them ourself allowing us to use only the finest quality cotton which ensures that all our towels remain thick and fluffy for longer. How many times have you come across those flimsy towels that start thinning after a few washes? Replace them today with our thick, plush towels!
What is GSM (Grams per Square Metre)?
GSM stands for Grams per Square Meter and is essentially the weight/density of the towel. A higher GSM rating of around 500 to 600gsm indicates a more thicker, dense towel which will be more durable and longer lasting than a towel with a lower GSM rating. It's usually tempting for institutions to consider getting cheaper, alternative towels with a lower GSM rating but it's not cost effective to do so in the long run. The towels will end up thinning and losing their density as they are being washed over and over again. After all, your guests are the most important people when it comes to towels. They will expect thick, sumptuous towels even though they are subjected to being washed repeatedly. That's why we recommend the higher GSM towels so you don't end up having to change them after a few washes as our towels will remain thick and fluffy.
