SimplyFR® is a game changer.LEARN MORE
INNOVATIVE MATTRESS SOLUTIONS ENGINEERED FOR A BETTER NIGHT’S SLEEP.
For decades, Milliken has been a trusted mattress components supplier. We make textiles for all parts of a mattress — from bedding fire resistant (FR) solutions and quilt polyester to moisture-wicking mattress linens, nonwoven insulator pads, and fiber boards. Flame-resistant SimplyFR™ barriers form a protective shield to keep heat and fire away from the mattress foam. SimplyFR is designed with the same type of material we use in uniforms for front-line firefighters and first responders. Top panel Soft Loftec™ fiber mattress toppers provide performance advantages such as moisture wicking, cooling, comfort, and improved aesthetics. And Milliken fiber board — a mattress-base insulator pad — covers spring units in innerspring and hybrid mattresses to cushion steel and wood touch points. Milliken offers a solution for all your bedding needs.
The Forefront of FR Technology
Our bedding portfolio draws on extensive experience with fire service and military FR applications. Milliken technologies are not based on topical treatments — they are inherent to the fiber.
Milliken bedding components are durable and long lasting. Our products are trusted by many of the biggest names in the industry — and we’re always looking for ways to make them even better.
We’ve been designing, researching, and manufacturing bedding and mattress products for decades. And we’ve jumped through regulatory and delivery hoops for just as long.
Convenient Shipping Points
We’ve worked hard to earn a reputation for prompt, reliable delivery. With our wide distribution footprint, we can ship from multiple manufacturing and warehouse locations, so you get what you need on time.
Protecting precious resources.
Our bedding products are Prop 65 Compliant. This assures that pure, safe drinking water sources are protected. To comply, Milliken has demonstrated through testing that our manufacturing processes do not produce bedding materials containing harmful chemicals or carcinogens.
Protective textiles: Serious business.
FR mattress barriers are part of our long history in the field of FR textiles. The technologies used in Milliken bedding materials were created in the same laboratories that develop FR fabrics for military and fire service applications. We’re serious about FR. Our FR mattress barrier solutions use inherent FR properties engineered directly into the material. We achieve 16 CFR 1633 and 16 CFR 1632 compliance without the use of topical chemical treatments.
Milliken continues to engage and explore opportunities to increase the circularity of our products. An example: We use post-industrial recycled polyester in our fiberpad products, helping us to minimize the need for virgin content. In 2021, our Gillespie plant recycled an estimated 60,000 lbs. of textile into usable material through its internal regrind process.
Sometimes, zero is the best goal.
Milliken & Company has set a goal to eliminate all waste to landfill by 2025. In 2022, leading by example, our Gillespie plant sent zero waste to landfill.
Jersey and rib knit options are available in variety of weights and thicknesses. Their superior stretch provides a maximum of comfort in both hybrid and foam core mattress constructions. All of our FR Knit products enables 16 CFR 1633 compliance on foams ranging from memory to gel to latex.
High Loft is the most common solution to achieve FR compliance. A rayon blend with superior loft retention, its FR characteristics are inherent to the fabric and are not applied topically. High Loft provides high char strength and compliance at a lower weight than comparable products, and its industry-leading roll build allows for improved freight cube, resulting in lower logistics costs.
Not only is Loftec technologically sophisticated, it also improves top panel aesthetics while offering increased comfort. Loftec is a cost-effective alternative to quilt foam and provides better air flow.
Fiber board functions as insulator pad in foundations to cushion steel and wood touch points. It’s placed over the spring unit in foundations in both innerspring and hybrid mattresses. Cost-effective, fiber board offers an excellent alternative to foam as a way to increase mattress thickness.
