Hickory Springs' Preserve Hi Flo foam
HICKORY, N.C., march 26, 2013 - Hickory Springs Mfg. is bringing its new bio-based reticulated foam product - Preserve Hi Flo foam - to the furniture and bedding industries.
"Our Preserve Hi Flo product is unique because we pour it on line, and the production process does not require any post treating," said Todd Councilman, Hickory Springs' vice president of bedding solutions. "In addition, we are the only foam manufacturer that offers an 83-inch width reticulated foam product. The extra width allows bedding manufacturers to use the product in rolls and sheets, eliminating seams and contributing to a more consistent air flow across the entire mattress."
Among the products that feature Hickory Springs' reticulated foam is the XstreamAir from Latexco. Lavonia, Ga.-based Latexco partnered with Hickory Springs to produce the breathable mattress comfort topper, which fuses latex over a layer of Preserve Hi Flo foam and combines comfort with air flow.
The latex-coated reticulated products are available in a variety of configurations and colors, officials said.
Preserve Hi Flo foam is produced in Americus, Ga.
"The product is a great fit for bedding as well as outdoor furniture, where its open cell construction allows water to flow through for rapid drying," said Councilman. "It also offers a variety of firmnesses and densities to suit specific customer requirements."
"By combining Preserve HF with other Hickory Springs products and processes, we continue to advance bedding solutions for manufacturers," added Rick Anthony, Hickory Springs' director of sales. "The result is an integrated sleep system that simplifies the production process and enhances the finished product."
