Pillow Fabrics

The technically correct pillow fabrics we manufacture at AKAS are therapeutically beneficial, comfortable, safe, and effective for use in Healthcare facilities, Senior Homes, Hospitality and individual uses including nursing pillows. These are currently offered in the following two types:

1)      AKASoft  Pillow W/ Micro Vent – Comfort – 21”

2)      AKASoft Pillow Protection – Whisper – 21”.

The difference between the two is the presence of micro-vents in Comfort. The micro-vents ensure there is no air trapped inside when resting the head and it does not bubble up.

These laminates are very soft, self-deodorizing, flame-retardant for the life of the fabric, hypo-allergenic, non-irritating, durable, tear resistant, combat bacterial & fungal growth, and are antistatic as well as foam compatible. They are also immensely popular due to their ‘no-noise’ characteristic and because they are very comfortable and easy to maintain.
