The Science of Safer Sleeping

The Cot Mattress everyone is talking about...

Allergy UK Kit for Kids Baby

Sensitivity to allergens can start in the cot.

It is the things we can't see that are so much more harmful for your baby. With an Ellergenic cot mattress, dust mites and fungal spores have nowhere to hide and nowhere to grow...
When you choose Ellergenics you don’t buy a cot mattress, you invest in the future wellbeing of your child.

We have created the Ellergenic Shield. It protects night and day against the allergens and microbes that might cause harm to the child.

Using our unique design (patent pending) we have created a sealed mattress, that uses the latest in anti-microbial and anti-fungal materials, to combine the comfort and longevity of a spring mattress with the ultimate in hygiene and protection.

As one would expect from Kit for Kids, these materials comply with the highest safety standards and meet Oeko-Tex Standard 100, Class 1.

Our revolutionary mattress all but eliminates Staphylococcus aureus (along with its most virulent anti-biotic resistant form, MRSA) as well as Escherichia coli and Salmonella choleraesuis. It also prevents the growth of fungi, thus depriving bed mites of a vital food source.

It has a vapour-permeable, waterproof, fabric which reduces sweating and assists in temperature control. The sealed mattress core eliminates the transmission of fluids in to the core or microbes out, and because it is sealed, the mattress can be washed in the bath or hosed down for ultimate hygiene.

Clearly the Ellergenic mattress is the very best of cot mattress design.

This is why we ask the question, is it the safest cot mattress in the world?

We believe so...

Our Ellergenic Mattresses

Ellergenic Mattress Cutaway
A
B

A. Ellergenic Wellbeing Exterior
The outer cover and first defence against harmful microbes. Comfortable, even ‘Ellergentle’ with its lofted fabric for added airflow, and with added ease for removal and replacement when washing.

B. Ellergenic Encasement
The all important encasement seals the sterile mattress core during manufacture and keeps the core of the mattress fresh and clean. It pre- vents microbes hiding or lurking in out of the way places. The encasement is treated with silver, a safe yet effective agent which prevents microbes propagating on the mattress.

With the encasement there is nowhere for harmful microbes to hide.

The Allergy UK Seal of Approval is awarded to products that have been scientifically tested to prove that they are efficient at reducing/ removing allergens from the environment.

The Ellergenic Mattress is the first cot mattress to have the seal of approval from Allergy UK.

It has been given this prestigious award because it reduces the presence of yeast, fungi, and most importantly, house dust mites.

The house dust mite allergen is an enzyme, used by the house dust mite to digest food (micro skin cells). When individuals with a sensitised immune system inhale the aero-allergen, they suffer from allergic symptoms like itchiness, sneezing, water or reddening of the eyes and nasal airways. They may develop Allergic Rhinitis, an allergic inflammation of the nasal airways. Allergic Rhinitis is the most common allergic disorder affecting up to 40% of the population in young adults.

House dust mite allergy is a chronic condition which can develop into allergic asthma. In young children this can have a detrimental effect on both learning and development.

The sensitivity to the dust mite enzyme, and likewise fungal spores, can build up from infancy and may only manifest itself when the child is of school age.

By fighting these allergens at an early age the child will have less risk of developing asthma later in life.

 

"The Ellergenics story is twenty years in the making. It is a story of commitment, dedication and belief. It is a story of the desire for knowledge and the vision for change."

At Kit for Kids we help the parent fulfil their covenant with the Child; to care for it, to aid its development, and to nurture its growth. In all things that we do we apply a scientific and disciplined approach. We challenge the status quo; we believe change is perpetual, and excellence a manner of working.

Jan is the founding director and CEO of the Kit for Kids Group. Previously a design engineer for advanced jet aircraft (GEC Avionics) and a qualified chartered accountant (Price Waterhouse, London), Jan has spent the last twenty years pursuing his vision.

It’s not what we do that’s important but why we do it. We believe we have a part to play in the betterment of children’s lives worldwide. This starts in the cot and with the cot mattress.

We have brought Science to cot mattress design. We understand the intrinsic requirements for safe sleep. Our proposition is safety in all its aspects and we align ourselves with those who can further our knowledge’.
