TOTOWA, N.J. – Precision Textiles, a supplier of coated fabrics, nonwovens and laminations, has broadened its portfolio beyond flame retardant solutions with the launch of the Luxe collection, a line of premium fibers for quilted mattress panels.
The new collection adds performance-enhancing products to its product line, a relatively new arena for the company.
In addition to offering its customers a broader product line, the Luxe collection, with a layer of support and a high-end silky texture, allows bedding manufacturers and retailers to merchandise mattresses at higher price points without the associated premium raw material costs, creating an opportunity for better margins, the company said.
“Expanding our portfolio with new performance-enhancing products demonstrates our focus on innovation and continually reinventing ourselves to better serve our customers in the bedding industry,” said Scott Tesser, CEO of Precision Textiles. “With this launch, we are sending a message to the industry that, while we will continue our focus on providing best-in-class FR solutions, we are a full-service solutions provider, offering both performance-based and utility-based components for mattresses and sleep products.”
While the new collection includes a fire retardant option, unlike other products in Precision’s portfolio that were solely designed to provide flame retardant properties, the three-tier collection – Luxe Bliss, Luxe Plush and Luxe Plush FR – was designed to create a premium sleep surface that allows users to comfortably adjust sleep positions throughout the night without interrupting sleep, a benefit that can raise any mattress to the next price tier, according to Tesser.
“Quilted panels manufactured with Luxe Collection fibers can easily elevate a $2,000 mattress to a $3,000 mattress, creating affordable luxury that does not carry a luxury price point,” he said.
“While traditional foam products make you feel as if you are sinking into your mattress, the disadvantage to that sinking feeling is that with any type of side-to-side movement you can easily feel the resistance and traction of the foam against the body. Our Luxe collection dissipates that resistance and creates an incredibly luxurious sleep surface that foam cannot achieve on its own.”
In addition, quilted panels manufactured with Luxe collection fibers feature enhanced breathability and moisture-wicking properties. The materials are also hypoallergenic and free of skin irritants.
