Professional & Commercial use
The hotel and cruise ship industry
No amount of cleaning can rid bedrooms of house dust mites because they like to live inside the mattress, duvet and pillows, but encasing the bedding with Astex Encasements your guests are protected from house dust mites, bed bugs and their allergens. The fabric is so finely woven (to 5.9 microns) that it forms a barrier, stopping house dust mites and bed bugs coming into contact with human skin and triggering eczema, rhinitis or a potentially fatal asthma attack.
They are zipped, white, soft, silent and breathable and are suitable for use in all hotels, apartments and cruise ships. They fit directly on to the mattress, duvet and pillows and then a mattress protector and sheets etc fit over the encasement. We recommend that the Astex Allegy encasements are washed at 60 degrees centigrade every 4-6 weeks to keep the encasement effective.
Patient care in hospitals and sleep and respiratory clinics
When treating a patient for one health issue, it complicates the recovery process for another health issue to make it’s presence known. Astex Allergy Bedding is made with a soft, white densely woven fabric that prevents house dust mites, bedbugs and their allergens from coming into contact with the patients skin and triggering eczema, rhinitis or, a potentially fatal, asthma attack.
Astex Allergy Bedding is available in cot and cot bed sizes for babies and children as well. In 45% of children, the onset of Atopic Eczema occurs during the first 6 months of life; during the first year 60% of these children are affected, and 85% are affected before the age of five. Using Astex Encasements will reduce the risk of night time admission to hospital.
The encasement fits directly onto the mattress, duvet and pillow and then a mattress protector and sheets etc are be put on over the encasement. We recommend washing at 60 degrees centigrade every 4-6 weeks to keep the encasement effective in reducing the chances of an allergic reaction.
