1 in 4 people in the UK suffer from hayfever with the suffering being caused by the allergen in the grass pollen. Grass pollen is microscopic and extrememly light weight and is produced in huge volumes, easily becoming airborne. Once in the air, the allergen carried by the pollen is capable of affecting anyone coming into contact with it. The larger the volume of pollen, the more likely the impact.
We are very proud to be supplying blinds with the unique fabric treatment that relieves hayfever sufferers.
How does Pollergen work?
Pollen by its very nature is tacky and will stick to any surface it comes into contact with. Pollergen helps to increase this capture rate by the inclusion of a tackifier within the formula.
Once captured, the unique Pollergen formulation will denature up to 50% of the grass pollen – essentially killing the active element and rendering the affected pollen absolutely harmless to sufferers. What’s more, independent testing by the National Pollen and Aerobiology Research Unit supports this figure compared to non-Pollergen treated fabrics.
All Pollergen treated fabrics can be washed or wiped down as the active formula continuously migrates to the surface of the fabric for continued protection.
