About PneumaPure filtration technology

PneumaPure filtration technology is highly specialised nano-porous medium that is a clinically proven barrier to pathogens, allergens and microbes. SleepAngel mattresses and pillows are hermetically sealed and the airflow is secured via the filter. This prevents the risks associated with regular pillows - interior contamination and build-up of allergens and microbes. In other words, the only thing that can get in or out of a SleepAngel bedding is pure air because they breathe/ventilate through the purifying filter.

Due to its nano-porous design the filter functions mechanically rather than chemically (i.e. it does not use biocides, pesticide or antihistamine to be effective). PneumaPure Filter technology is unique, and patent protected globally.
