Culp and Precision work to meet standard

Culp, Inc.'s Culp Home Fashions division has entered into an agreement with Precision Fabrics Group to distribute flame-resistant fabrics to Culp's bedding customers.

The bedding has been constructed to meet California's new open flame mattress flammability standard, scheduled to go into effect Jan. 1, 2005.

After three years of development, Precision Fabrics Group recently launched its SoftGuard MTP line of products for the bedding industry. These fabric products consist of a proprietary blend of fibers that are treated to provide flame-blocking capability, said the company. The fabrics are designed to be used between the mattress foam and the ticking, or beneath "sacrificial" layers of fiber or foam, and can be used to replace existing fabric and foundation components.

Through the new partnership, Culp will be the exclusive distributor of SoftGuard MTP.
