Why Silver for Healthy Sleep

April 12, 2017

For maximum hygiene through the use of silver and silver zeolite


In ancient times the Romans were already aware of the healing effects and antibacterial capabilities of silver. From the beginning of the 20th century, silver compounds have been regarded as effective antimicrobial agents. Today silver is a key component in a multitude of health products.


As health is closely connected with healthy sleep, Wenatex has also made good use of the properties of silver: the SilverMed® fibre is woven into the Wenatex Deluxe cover as well as into the quilt and pillow. In the Wenatex Deluxe core, silver zeolite is an active agent.



Positive Effects

The use of SilverMed® fibre and silver zeolite creates a wide range of positive properties, resulting in refreshing, healthy sleep: silver in the sleep system has a permanent effect – it is antibacterial and germ-resistant, antimicrobial, anti-static, hypoallergenic, breathable, climate-regulating and odour preventing.


With SilverMed® fibre and with silver zeolite, Wenatex utilises all these positive effects to provide sleep comfort that not only fully complies with orthopaedic standards but also meets the highest level of hygiene. 



What is SilverMed® and Silver Zeolite?




SilverMed® is the union of the purest medical silver with a textile fibre: the fibre is permanently combined with silver whilst still retaining its textile properties.


Silver Zeolite

Zeolites are crystalline alumosilicates occurring in nature but can also be synthetically produced. Silver zeolites used in Wenatex products are synthetically produced.



SilverMed® and silver zeolite have a permanent, anti-bacterial and germ- inhibiting effect. They are also anti-microbial, antistatic, anti-allergic, breathable, climate-regulating, and odour preventing.


For babies and people with allergies
For hygiene reasons, textiles with SilverMed® and silver zeolite are especially suitable for babies, small children and people with allergies.
