Encasing your pillows an integral part of your allergy prevention solution. Allergy Guard Direct sells every basic style of allergen barrier fabric sold today. Rather than create confusion and use private label names to disguise what you are buying, we call the fabric what it is and have created a comparison shop and fabric specification link to help you. Upon reviewing these links you will see that there are a fair number of sites selling allergy relief bedding. All are offering similar fabrics if not the exact same ones yet they all have their own unique names. Allergy Guard Direct is a factory direct retailer and we don't need to rename the fabrics in order to justify higher retails. Forget about the names and focus on the following to determine the value of what you are buying and which will be the best for you:
What is the pore size? Less than 7 is the best for Dust Mite and dander protection and under 5 is premium.
What is the weight in grams of the fabric per inch or square meter?
Is there a membrane? Membrane free fabrics will typically be more expensive
If a membrane, what is the millimeter thickness of the coating?
What is the blend of material in terms of percentage of cotton to polyester?
What is the thread count? This helps confirm you are looking at the same fabrics across all retailers.
How many stitches/inch are used to sew the product.
Is the zipper a heavy gauge metal slide or a plastic one?
Where is the product made? Imports usually mean cheap and less warranty.
