Poll-Tex is a patented product and a solution for people who have an allergic reaction to pollen. This high-quality screen product combines several desirable properties:
- It wards off pollen,
- it has a high degree of transparency
- and has a high relative air permeability.
The application of Poll-Tex® means hay fever patients can still ventilate their bedroom without letting in pollen. These three properties make Poll-Tex ® a unique product in the world and it is ECARF certified.
The extensive test data of the Charité hospital in Berlin shows how and in what manner the tests on the four different types of pollen took place.
ECARF stands for the European Centre for Allergy Research Foundation. Reevaluation tests are needed and executed every two years in order to assure the effectiveness of the material and warrant for the ECARF Seal of Quality. Their biannually tests have recently reconfirmed that Poll-tex® effectively protects against grass, flower and tree pollen, therefore the ECARF certification has been extended.
