FXI Launches Foam Component Temp-Control System
2014 by in Bedding, Product
Foam products source FXI has introduced what it calls specialty sleep industry’s first system to rank temperature regulation in foam products.
The new Temperature Regulation Factor system will be used to communicate the performance level of each of the company’s foam offerings in its new TRF product lineup.
The TRF system consists of three ranking levels for foam products: TRF 2.0, 3.0 and 4.0. Products that fall in the TRF 2.0 range have open cell foam with high levels of airflow for good temperature management, such as FXI’s Aerus and MemGel Swirl products. At the TRF 3.0 level, foam offerings are open cell, have high airflow and include added heat dissipation properties, like FXI’s Gel-Trix. Products at the top-level TRF 4.0 category have extreme open cell foam, providing the highest level of airflow of any foam product available on the market, as well as the added benefits of heat and moisture dissipation, encompassing the Maxperm, SilkLux, Aerus Max and MemGel Max offerings.
“Airflow and breathability has always been at the forefront of the discussion about foam products. With the development of our TRF system, we have created a tool that communicates the combined benefits of airflow, heat and moisture dissipation in our foam products and how these benefits increase within the landscape of the system itself. Each step in the scale, from TRF 2.0, to 3.0 and 4.0, builds upon the one before it to create a unique and beneficial solution,” said Aston, Pa.-based FXI Chief Marketing Officer Diane Adams. “The products highlighted within our TRF system are truly the latest innovations in foam. We developed a full product portfolio of temperature-regulating foams based on a consumer need--the need to sleep more comfortably throughout the night--and our team of technicians and professionals at our Research and Innovation Center developed the scale as a means to solve consumer needs through a solutions-based product system.”
