The 5th annual Safety Products Student Design Challenge is now accepting entries. This industry sponsored Challenge has been designed to encourage the use and study of technical textiles in functional design. Students in post-secondary colleges and universities are encouraged to participate.

Sponsored by the Safety and Protective Products Division and the Narrow Fabrics Institute, part of Industrial Fabrics Association International, the worldwide association which promotes technical textiles.

Member companies provide technical textile solutions
for military, aeronautics, first responder/hazmat, medical, sports applications and many other cutting edge applications in various markets.

IFAI and its divisions are committed to encouraging and supporting talented new contributors to the growth of this important global industry.

Students will create an original design and prototype for a safety and protective product which will protect the human form or property from conditions which could cause accidents in the workplace.

These conditions include, but are not limited to, extreme hot or cold temperature; impact; chemical or biological exposure; poor visibility; unsafe conditions which permit falls.

Projects whose primary purpose is comfort, aesthetics, or protection from general environmental conditions will not be accepted. Projects must incorporate a textile component as a major part of the product.
