ENKEV’s Hairlok is made purely from natural animal hair and natural latex. Enkev spins the hair into ropes to create thousands of natural micro-springs, resulting in enduring resilience. Hairlok is ideal for distributing pressure over pocket springs without limiting the point elasticity that the pockets provide. Hairlok’s flexibility means it can even be used as a comfort layer. Hairlok’s high point elasticity and three-dimensional strength are its main functional attributes.
Hairlok is 100% natural. Scientific tests have proven that horsehair creates an excellent micro-climate, keeping us comfortable in both warm and cold conditions. The quick-drying property of horsehair is perfect for a mattress or a seat, because body temperatures are often transformed into moisture in the form of perspiration. If you feel dry, you feel better.
ENKEV spins the hair into ropes to create thousands of natural micro-springs, resulting in enduring resilience. Then the ropes are transformed into sheets before being sprayed with natural latex, a fully renewable material, to provide them with structure and elasticity. Natural latex is inherently hypo-allergenic, antimicrobial and dust-mite-resistant, making it perfect for allergy sufferers. Nature constantly replenishes these materials, which are unsurpassed in resilience, durability and ventilation. Animal hair is normally discarded as waste, but ENKEV reuses this wonderful material and gives it a new purpose in life.
Hairlok’s open and resilient structure creates a perfect micro-climate. Its superb shock-absorbing properties make it suitable for mattresses, furniture, car seats, filters, packaging etc. The structure also absorbs sound and certain waves, making the material excellent as a thermal and acoustic insulation product. Hairlok can also be treated with natural additives to meet a range of international fire retardancy standards.
