WestPoint Stevens and Thermocable to heat up blankets
March 24, 2004,
WEST POINT, Ga. — WestPoint Stevens Inc. has partnered with Thermocable to power up the Fahrenheit blanket. The Vellux heated blanket now incorporates the next generation of wiring technology, said the companies.
The performance-enhancing features include two independent temperature-sensing systems to provide a uniform temperature throughout the blanket and also a spot-sensing feature to prevent local overheating.
The item will be featured in the WestPoint Stevens showroom during this week’s New York Home Textiles Market and will ship late summer 2004.
