Suffering from Hayfever?

November 10, 2017

If you’re suffering form hayfever you’re not alone……

The number of hayfever sufferers in the UK is growing every year. It’s now estimated that’s 1 in 5 people suffering from that pesky allergen found in grass pollen. If an itchy nose and watering eyes in the summer months are becoming too much to bare then look no further.
We here at SLX can help…our window blinds can reduce your hayfever symptoms!

Did you know that our exclusive blind fabrics in the SLX Evolution Collection of Roller and Vertical Blinds are treated with a unique new fabric treatment called Pollergen™ which will relieve hayfever sufferers?


What is Pollergen™ and what does it do?

Well pollen, by its very nature is tacky. As a result it 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 Pollen formulation will denature up to 50% of the grass pollen. Essentially it kills the active element and therefore rendering the affected pollen absolutely harmless to vulnerable hayfever sufferers.


Does Pollergen™ really work?

Yes it does! Independent Testing by the National Pollen and Aerobiology Research Unit has concluded that a Pollergen™ treated fabric, shows up to 50% reduction in grass pollen allergen when compared to a non treated control fabric. And as the old saying goes, every little helps.

All of our Pollergen™ treated blinds can be washed or wiped down, this will do no harm to the fabric treatment. As the active formulation continuously migrates to the surface of the fabric for continued protection.
