The base of our award-winning sleep system starts with two layers of non-slip mesh. This can be either one layer of fitted mesh with a flat top piece, or two flat pieces if the individual is maybe sharing a bed. The flexibility of this base layer makes it one of the most dynamic parts of our system.
It is between the two layers of mesh where supports are placed around an individual to create the ideal position for them. The mesh is one of the most hygienic bases for a positioning system as it is anti-microbial, complete with SteriTouch running through it, anti-mite, anti-fungal, entirely washable and conforms to Oeko-Tex Standard 100. It is therefore safe to wash at 40° as it contains all the above properties and does not wash out. The product can be washed at 60°, although we do advise 40° for environmental reasons. If an anti-bacterial additive is used in the wash, it can be washed at 30° and will therefore last longer. Please be advised that the mesh should never be put into a tumble dryer.
It holds any supports firmly and is completely silent to use, making changes in position throughout the night as gentle and calm as possible. The mesh can be used to also hold other pieces of equipment in place as well as holding the individual which means that the overall positioning system is very secure whilst allowing for easy changes in position. For information on how it can be used on different sized beds please see our Care Guidance Section. It is available in a variety of sizes (6 altogether) and can be adapted for use on double beds (see Flat Stabilizing Mesh). Basic sizes are below.
