Springs Creative Product Group, Rock Hill, S.C., has announced the launch of VERGE™, a new FR border solution for the mattress industry. VERGE represents a proprietary new FR technology that delivers the best in border design capabilities with a new level of FR protection. The all-in-one solution avoids quilting or laminating and can be sold in precut border widths.
Using new, patent pending FR technology, VERGE borders display a unique response when flame impinges. “When we first saw the results of testing and the char properties, we were amazed. The strength after the flame was equal to the strength of most other products before testing,” said Springs Creative technical sales rep Jimmy Fleming. “We think VERGE is a real game changer in terms of design and performance value.”
