Pollergen 2017

Did you know that 16 million people in the uk suffer from hayfever? That’s one in four. Thanks to one of our suppliers they have spent time and money creating a new Pollergen range which provides some relief with a brand new coating available on their blinds. The coating on the fabrics will de-nature up to 50% of pollen when the two come into contact, so a deployed blind can dramatically decrease the amount of active pollen that can enter a room.

Pollergen is a fantastic and unique addition to your fabric offering. There is not any extra charge for this coating and is only available on certain roller blinds but perfect if you have little ones with hay fever. Below are the main symptoms of Hay Fever so keep an eye out if you are experiencing any of the below.

Pollen is a fine powder released by plants as part of their reproductive cyle. It contains proteins that cam cause the nose, eyes, throat and sinuses (small air-filled cavities behind your cheekbones and forehead) to become swollen, irritated and inflamed. 

You can have an allergy to;

  • Tree pollen, released during spring
  • Grass pollen, released during the end of spring and beginning of summer
  • Weed Pollen, released late autumn
