FROM A SWEDISH INNOVATION TO A GLOBAL
Never before has it been so easy to keep warm for a long time and in extreme conditions. The solution that makes that possible is the heating system developed by Inuheat. For many years at its headquarters and textile lab just outside Gothenburg in Sweden, Inuheat has been researching and developing the system that makes it easy for clothing companies to offer their customers heat control clothes they can wear next to their skin..
It’s all about active heated clothes that can withstand sweat, cold, wear and tear – and last longer. Inuheat searched for good products on the market, but was never completely satisfied with the clothes that were available. None of the products we tested met our high demands on good clothing design, durability and heat control. In the end, we decided to create the best solution ourselves. But instead of designing and manufacturing our own clothes, Inuheat decided not to compete with all the great clothes designers already out there. We chose to focus purely on developing a really good heating system and to drive this development further than anyone else had ever done. It’s a simple idea: With the market’s best wearable heating system in clothes from the best clothing companies you get the best products ever available.
Today, Inuheat offers its heating solution to leading clothing companies that can easily design, manufacture and sell actively heated clothes as part of their range. The heating technology can be integrated so well that the original comfort and design are not affected. So, for the first time, premium clothing manufacturers have access to heating technology that meets the same high standards they have for their products.
But the journey hasn’t been simple or straightforward. There have been many trips back to the drawing board. Inuheat’s early prototypes delivered both success and setbacks in terms of materials, manufacturing methods and quality. But despite this, we never compromised on form and function. At Inuheat, we are extra proud that our heating system is the result of a lot of hard work together with researchers and industry professionals from The Swedish School of Textiles at Borås University, the Smart Textiles research initiative and Chalmers University of Technology’s commercial R&D foundation amongst others, as well as a great many testers in “real life”.
The idea of offering the world’s best wearable heat control, which can be integrated into clothing from the best clothing companies, has proven itself to be a winning concept.
