Nanomembrane



"THE WILLING ALWAYS SEEK WAYS, OTHERS SEEK JUST OBSTACLES"

Development of the unique Nanomembrane materials is Lukáš Heřmanský credit. He is like a real engine of the Nanomembrane company. His stubbornness, endurance and soul of an athlete have led him to an idea of creating new dimension of membrane clothing, which people can dress, whether they go to nature or to a city.



Lukáš was a skier literally before he could walk. He trained hard for years on hills in Lomnice and this hard work brought him to Salt Lake City Olympic Games in 2002, where he represented the Czech Republic in Nordic Combination. After ending professional career as an athlete he started a new one in textile industry. He wanted to create something entirely different and new in clothing area, something that would change the public thinking about membrane products. As s sportsman he knows best how important is quality of clothing, when you want to enjoy sport activities at its fullest and without any compromises. It was fate that brought him together with Roman Knížek – research scientist at TUL and manager of Nanomembrane company. They started manufacturing membrane materials, which benefit from unique characteristics of Czech nanofibers. Roman Knížek says that nanofibers can produce a perfect second skin, which is strictly waterproof, always release water vapor and also is perfectly wind resistant. Nanomembrane company is the first in the world to start using a nanofibrous membrane for sports and outdoor wear and also develops membrane materials for fashion industry. SVITAP J.H.J. spol. s.r.o. is a co-owner of NANOMEMBRANE and also a major contributor to its development and expansion.
