AERISTO carries a wide selection of three-dimensional Spacer knit textiles called Ventimesh. The materials can complement or even substitute foams needed in the upholstery process, both for structural and aesthetic purposes. Available thicknesses range from 2–20 mm to allow for a wide range of seating comfort levels. Ventimesh can also be used in lieu of batting and sewn directly with the leather into the slip covers.
Despite the light weight and open structure of Ventimesh, it is in full compliance with the FAA specifications and yields excellent composite test results.
The construction of the Ventimesh fibers is designed to provide the variable balance of pressure-relieving comfort and therapeutic support. Unlike other foams of the same thickness that tend to flatten out prematurely, Ventimesh has excellent retention of shape leaving you with cushions which maintain their structural integrity over time and use.
By eliminating layers of the conventional foam cushion to accommodate Ventimesh, overall weight savings are achieved.
Combined with perforated leather, air is allowed to enter and move throughout the mesh-like textile at ease, increasing the airflow to maximize comfort and responsiveness. This passive ventilation is brought to you by materials that actually reduce weight rather than increase it.
Ventimesh is antimicrobic and antiallergenic, thereby eliminating many disease-carrying microorganisms that may develop in conventional foams due to inclement climate conditions and in-cabin food or drink spills. This also prevents the stale air and bad odors often associated with sponge-like foams.
Different constructions of Ventimesh can be layered to create the perfect seat cushion combination – strong, lightweight, responsive and functional.
The looped-yarn buildup acts as an excellent recovery feature, leaving smooth, wrinkle-free seating surfaces.
Simple and effective, AERISTO's lumbar support systems are an integral method to provide excellent seating ergonomics.
