Precision Textiles Develops Industry-First Foam Pillow with Fr Barrier and Antimicrobial Properties to Ensure Safety
TOTOWA, N.J. – Precision Textiles, a leading supplier of coated fabrics, nonwovens and laminations for the bedding, automotive, health care and home furnishings industries, has developed an industry-first foam pillow featuring the same FR capabilities as the company’s IQ FIT Glass Free products with antimicrobial protection, as well as an innovative design.
The patent-pending design, Cradle Comfort, creates a specialized cradling effect to reduce pressure on your head, while simultaneously offering superior neck support and optimal spinal alignment, regardless of the individual’s sleeping position. The unique molding configuration allows for enhanced sleeping performance benefits that single-molded pillows cannot provide.
“With our company’s dedication and support in helping our customers address government requirements for FR mattress compliance, we decided to bring the same protection technology based on recent consumer insights in advance of a defined government regulation. We were able to take our technology and apply it to a pillow, assuring not only great comfort, but additional protection,” said Bob O’Connell of Precision Textiles. “We’re the experts in FR solution products, so we felt it was necessary to bring this protection to other parts of the sleep system.”
The new pillow will join the company’s assortment of innovative technology products and will be offered to customers looking to advance their sleep product collections. The chemical-free, glass-free fabric from Precision’s IQ FIT Glass Free products will be used as the inner cover to not only act as a FR barrier, but also provide additional sleep hygiene protection through a specialized antimicrobial application.
The new pillow technology is Greenguard Gold certified and also certified under the United States Department of Agriculture’s BioPreferred® Program, which aligns with consumer and market sustainability trends.
The new pillow assortment will feature eight different styles, in both queen and king sizes, with a compressed-packed, eco-friendly packaging system, helping to reduce the carbon footprint and lower delivery cost.
