  • Encasing Pore Size

    Pore Size & Encasing Efficiency

    In 1999 a team of researchers at the University of Virginia published a study entitled, "Evaluation of materials used for allergy bedding: Effect of pore size in blocking cat and dust mite allergen." The stated purpose of this study was "to develop a method for testing encasement materials made of breathable fabrics." A new testing protocol was indeed developed which is now used to determine two things: 1) the ability of woven fabrics to block cat and dust mite allergen and 2) the breath-ability of a fabric as measured in liters of air per minute that can be drawn through it. You might be wondering why cat allergen was used in the study, after all, who has a cat in their pillow? Cat allergen is a potentially very small allergen, so fabrics that can block all or most of it are the most effective allergy mattress covers. Continue reading

    Why Doctors Recommend Allergen-Proof Encasings

    About 20 years ago, researchers began to wonder what could be done in the home environment to help control the allergen triggers that cause asthmatic and allergic reactions. Because we spend one-third of our life in our bedroom, it seemed the natural environment on which to focus. Tests were done in which one group got zippered allergen-proof bedding encasings, while the control group had no encasings. The results of even such simple tests were dramatic. Continue reading
