What are the common zipper widths?


Answer by  light (200)

Zipper sizes are measured by keeping the teeth side facing upwards and then using a set of calipers. The size can vary from just over 2 millimeters to about 10 millimeters (1 cm). The zipper can have either teeth or coils.

The coil zippers are usually smoother to use than the tooth zippers by nature of their design.  add a comment

Common widths for zippers include about 3 mm to 2 mm. It all depends on the thickness of the zippers.

By industrial standards zippers have sizes designated as size 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12 and so on. The numbers are just technical jargon and do not reflect any specific size as numbers. In general, the bigger sizes mean a stronger zipper.

Commonly, zippers are measured according to the thickness that they have. Therefore, I would think that it is commonly about 2 mm to 10 mm.

The most common zipper width is around about 1/4 of an inch or also known as 1 millimeter. Feel free to check your own zipper.

1/4 of an inch is actually 7. 0 mm (milimeters) not 1; "1/4 of an inch or also known as 1 millimeter"  add a comment
