Innovative Manufacturers of specialist fire resistant bedding for secure environments

In 1988 two prisoners in the custody of Northern Ireland’s local police force set fire to their cell bedding which resulted in their death. The police authority approached us to design and manufacture a vandal proof and flame resistant mattress.

After significant investment in R&D the first FASTASLEEP mattress was designed, manufactured and supplied. The Police Force was delighted with the result and published an article in the Police Gazette. Within months many of the UK Police Constabularies were using the FASTASLEEP mattress for their custodial cells and continue to do so to this day. The range has since been extended to include fire resistant pillows, high security blankets, fire resistant blankets and other items for cell bedding.

The FASTASLEEP range is now supplied to most of the UK’s Police Forces and is exported to police and prison services in Cyprus, The Middle East, The Caribbean and other places around the world.
