Mattes & Ammann enters mattress sector with Trevira CS collection

For many years Mattes & Ammann, specialists in circular and warp knitted fabrics, have used Trevira yarns for their high quality products particularly in applications in the automotive sector and with Trevira CS qualities for seat covers on trains.

Now, a segment of growing importance to the Swabian textile company is the mattress sector and working with fibre manufacturer Trevira, Mattes & Ammann has developed a variety of fabric qualities for mattress covers. The company recently extended their product range for the segment to include a collection in Trevira CS to cater for the contract market.

Within the contract market, safety takes on great significance from the very beginning of project planning and spectacular large-scale fires, such as the hotel blaze on New Year’s Eve 2015 in Dubai, continually bring this subject back into the public eye. Due to fire safety regulations, flame retardant drapes, decorative and upholstery fabrics are established as standard in hotels, hospitals and in care homes today. The use of flame retardant mattress covers makes an additional contribution towards preventive fire protection.

New developments

The new range currently includes three qualities in various weights ranging from 230 – 365 g/m², with the result that the cover can be adapted to the different structure and the desired weight of the mattress. A variety of looks offers further possible choices, highlighting the wide range of fabric constructions.

Every newly developed article bears the trademark approval for Trevira CS. Working with Werkmeister based in Henstedt-Ulzburg, the manufacturer of top-end mattresses, Mattes & Ammann have also set in place the complete IMO certification for the maritime sector (both Module B and Module D), so that these mattresses are suitable for maritime applications.

This includes use on cruise liners and yachts. Mattress manufacturer Breckle in Weida also has mattresses for the maritime sector, correctional facilities and contract applications in its portfolio and will in future be using Trevira CS fabrics from the Mattes & Ammann collection for its covers.

Alongside products for shipping, mattresses with permanently flame retardant covers are also of interest for aircraft, military barracks, psychiatric clinics and penal institutes, or indeed anywhere there is a need for mattresses and where particular safety regulations apply.

The virtues of the new development are two, Trevira reports: the high quality of “Made in Germany” embedded in the item from fibre to end product and the permanent flame retardancy of the covers, a benefit that is not lost even after washing. Trevira CS materials are easy care and kind to the skin, and Trevira fibres and yarns meet the human-ecological demands of Oeko- Tex 100 standard.

Based in Tieringen (Baden-Württemberg), Mattes & Ammann was founded in 1951 and has a total annual production in excess of 55 million square metres of fabric, achieved with a workforce numbering around 275.
