SUTTON, Neb. — GBS Enterprises recently has begun promoting its Allergy Sentry Mattress Encasements to the pest control industry now that product testing by Snell Scientifics Entomological Laboratory of Barnesville, Ga., is complete. Product testing focused on bed bugs and whether or not they could escape through the fabric itself, the seams, the product’s zipper or zipper closure. Testing completed with tremendously positive results, GBS Enterprises reports. No bed bug was capable of escaping the Allergy Sentry Mattress Encasement. The lab used both adult bed bugs and nymphs, along with their eggs, throughout the course of the experiment.
Economy Dust Mite & Allergy Mattress Encasings are available in three depths: 9", 12", and 16". The 9" deep encasings will cover a mattress that is up to 9" deep. For mattresses that are between 9" and 12", select the 12" Depth. Mattresses that are between 12" and 16" will need the 16" Depth. If you are unsure which depth mattress encasing you need, it is always best to get the deeper encasing, as you can always tuck in any extra material underneath the mattress. Encasings may tear during installation if the mattress is slightly too deep. Please carefully measure the depth of your mattress to determine which depth encasing you should order.
