About Asthmaban

Asthmaban carpets were specially formulated, using advanced technologies and treatments, to cater to New Zealand’s more than 800,000 asthma and allergy sufferers.

These advanced carpets minimize the effects of bacteria, mould, mildew, fungi and dust mites that grow in your carpet so that you can enjoy a healthier environment.

With our solution-dyed nylons, the fibres won't shed into the air, which further minimizes irritants found in air pollutants. Combine this with Asthmaban’s synthetic treated carpet backing, which further resists mould and mildew growth, to help make it an asthma and allergy friendly carpet to protect your family.

Asthmaban carpets help control asthma-triggering allergens such as:

Left unchecked these little nasties can really affect your home’s air and quality of life.
