FabricTech International Unveils New StainGuard & Organic

Bedding Protection Products At Las Vegas Market


September 10, 2009 - FabricTech International, the nation’s leader in bringing advanced technology and comfort to the sleep products protection industry, will introduce a series of innovative new offerings at the Las Vegas Furniture Market, including StainGuard, a quilted series, and an organic cotton lineup of its popular Mattress Protector, Total Encasement and pillow protection line. Additionally, the company said it was revitalizing its core OmniGuard® mattress and pillow protection products.


“The success of our core product lineup had retailers asking us to expand and broaden our product offerings to provide more variety and price spectrum bandwidth for consumers,” said FabricTech International Chairman and CEO Arnold Hershbain. “We’ve taken a number of steps this year to enhance the lineup and also to add strength to our leadership with the appointment of industry veteran Jeff Bergman as president and chief operating officer in the first half of the year.”


All FabricTech International products prevent skin particles and moisture from reaching a mattress, using a three-step approach. It’s flagship OmniGuard® Ultra uses a breathable PolyKnit™ outer layer absorbs perspiration, moisture and stains, while the waterproof InnerShield™ membrane protects them from reaching the mattress. It wicks moisture away instead of creating an uncomfortable “puddle” effect. This also prevents mold and mildew from forming. OmniGuard® Ultra is naturally dust mite, bed bug, stain and water resistant, and is made with no added chemicals, so it is safe for children and pets. The products are waterproof, quiet and cool, unlike noisy, sticky vinyl.


The InnerShield™ membrane also safeguards a mattress manufacturer’s warranty since it can be voided if there is a stain on a mattress –regardless if your claim is for another reason. OmniGuard® products will sport revamped packaging and point of purchase materials for retailers. The packaging will be more consumer friendly, showing the health and medical benefits of these patented, premium products.


The StainGuard lineup includes a pillow protector, plush quilted mattress protector and all season’s mattress protector. StainGuard products use a quilted design, are ant-microbial and Teflon-free.


Responding to the increased popularity of organic, natural bedding, FabricTech International will be unveiling a new line of 100-percent natural Mattress Protector, Total Encasement and Pillow Protector.. The Mattress Protectors and pillow protectors use the company’s exclusive PureFlow™ filter with AirXchange micro-filtration technology that adds a new degree of comfort with a breathable micro-filter sewn into the product.


“FabricTech International has one of the most cutting-edge research and development departments in the industry today. They work daily on the latest and most innovative sleep benefit products that are Engineered through Sleep Science®,” said Bergman. “The result has been a very exciting journey these past few months of broadening our lineup and working more closely with our retailers to providing them with more training and tools so their RSAs can be more successful selling these products.”


Founded in 1992, FabricTech International provides consumers with a safer and healthier sleeping environment by utilizing the most advanced technology, the finest materials and highest quality workmanship. In addition, all FabricTech International products are proudly made in the United States and adhere to strict medical guidelines. FabricTech International is the exclusive provider of mattress protection products for The Style Network.
