Magniflex, an Italian mattress manufacturer, is rolling out a new and timely innovation. As a response to the COVID-19 global pandemic, Magniflex conducted scientific and technological research in collaboration with prominent experts in order to produce MagniProtect: an antiviral and antibacterial collection using ViroStop fabric.
The presence of four factors – heat, moisture, fats, and proteins – which are present in human sweat, help viruses and bacteria proliferate. ViroStop, which is exclusive to Magniflex, is a unique combination of the vesicle and silver-based technologies designed to combat these factors and inhibit the growth and persistence of bacteria and viruses on fabric.
The Italian made MagniProtect collection includes mattresses, toppers, and pillows that are manufactured using ViroStop fabric, which is designed to give the fabrics effective protection against viruses and bacteria. According to Magniflex, this product is effective against common viruses like the flu and coronavirus and can destroy viruses and bacteria by up to 99% in just a few minutes. By relying on the properties of silver as a powerful antiviral and antibacterial material the fabric is made to provide protection against contaminants that use fabric as the host surface.
The ViroStop fabric used in MagniProtect has been independently tested in the United States to determine the effectiveness of the fabric against human coronavirus. The results of the testing concluded that ViroStop met the requirements to destroy viruses and bacteria and no further contamination occurred.
The MagniProtect mattress offers a medium-firm comfort level with the support that ensures proper posture by targeting seven differentiated areas. The 2-inch mattress topper offers a medium-soft comfort that is made up of padding in hypoallergenic fiber, Memoform and super soft fiber. The pillows in the MagniProtect collection, which are available in a standard and wave design, offer a medium-soft comfort.
As with all Magniflex products, MagniProtect has received the Oeko-Tex rating of Standard 100 and STeP Certification, meaning it is free from formaldehyde, toxic chemicals, off-gassing and foul odors and CFC’s and VOC’s that are harmful to both people and the environment.
