WestPoint Stevens Partners With Thermocable

WestPoint Stevens Inc., West Point, Ga., has announced it will use heating technology from England-based Thermocable to power its Vellux® Fahrenheit™ blankets and a new economical line of acrylic blankets under its Restwarmer™ brand.

“We are truly excited about the opportunity to partner with Thermocable on the new Triaxial wiring innovation and be the first to offer this superior new product to the US marketplace,” said Art Birkins, president of WestPoint Stevens’ Basic Bedding Division.

According to Michael Daniels, general manager, Thermocable, the Thermocable heating wire has a soft, supple feel that complements Vellux’s softness.

Fahrenheit’s redesigned control shows 15 heat settings on a backlighted liquid crystal display. Features include Heat Boost to provide a bed-preheating function followed by a lower heat setting for sleeping comfort, as well as advanced diagnostics to monitor performance.
