About Airospring - Sitting on air
AiroSpring is the result of extensive research carried out by the teams at Baltex Technical Textiles and The University of Bolton. Following years of research and development, a new standard in healthy seating is ready for you to experience. AiroSpring uses the latest innovative 3D fabric technology that embodies everything that is new and bold in textile and cushion design.
The technical and medical textile department at The University of Bolton is home to one of the leading institutions in the industry. It’s got a highly qualified, experienced and knowledgeable team, who are committed to improving textile technology.
The fabric used in all of AiroSpring's products is provided by Baltex, one of the leading manufacturers of knitted 3D Spacer fabrics in the UK, with a rich 182-year history of making the highest quality knitted products. Baltex was founded in 1831 by two brothers in Ilkeston, Derbyshire. Masters of knitting and fabric technology, they registered patent after patent before winning a gold medal for innovation at the Great Exhibition of 1851.
Pressure Relief Devices from an Award Winning Company
The company was awarded the Innovation Prize for Technical Textiles at the 2010 Textile Institute World Conference thanks to the incredible invention of Airospring pressure relief cushions.
Our AS range of pressure relief cushions (consisting of the AS100, 200 and 300) are the triumph of all this research. We have spent years finding the perfect materials to make each of the three layers of fabric out of, chosen for breathability, support, weight distribution, durability and a fully washable range of cushions. All this time spent in the pursuit of making this novel range of pressure relief cushions on the market. We are constantly be looking for ways to improve our methods and products.
Three layers of fabric allow us to concentrate on a different benefit and feature for each one. The three layers spread the weight around between them so that the pressure isn’t localised on just one small area. Pressure mapping trials have been conducted extensively at the University of Bolton to assess the performance of the cushions according to ISO 16840-2:2007.
The breathability of the fabric and high moisture vapour transfer of the materials provides a cushion which is highly breathable and prevents the build up of humidity within the cushion.Tests on the cushions have been conducted to BS EN 11092 to measure their effectivness in managing moisture dissipation. The materials used in the design of our products are also chosen for their non-irritability and non-allergenic properties, so there’s little chance of nasty skin reactions when you use them.
Airospring was awarded it's first patent in August 2014 and we have further developments in the pipeline.
