2 DUST SKIRTS A simple treatment known by many names: Bed Skirts, Dust Skirts and Dusters. Bed Skirts are an important piece of a complete bedding package. Bed Skirts cover the lower portion of a bed, adding a finishing touch to your guest room layout. Several designs are available, from the simple texture of a quilted bed skirt, to the clean crisp lines of box pleated edges, we have something to fit your design and budget. Many options are available to tailor this custom treatment to each bed design. Fitted sheet bottom, fitted cap, elastic band corner, and sewn down pleats are just a few of the sophisticated options Fabtex can provide when designing Dust Skirts for your next hospitality project.

3 DUST SKIRT SPECIFICATIONS STYLE: Shirred Gathered on all 3 sides of the drops with 200% fullness unless otherwise specified. Tailored 2 Pleat - One pleat at each bottom corner. 5 Pleat - Five inverted pleats on the Queen and King. One at the center of side drops, one at each bottom corner, and one in the middle of the foot drop. Twin and Double sizes do not have a pleat in the bottom drop. 11 Pleat - Eleven inverted pleats on the Queen and King. Three at the center of side drops, one at each bottom corner, and one in the middle of the foot drop. Twin and Double sizes only have two pleats in the bottom drop. Box Pleat Continuous box pleats on all 3 sides of the drops. Size of the pleats to be 10, 8 or 6 in width. Channel Quilted Skirt side and bottom quilted with 4" channel pattern. Made with a 6 ounce fill and poly/cotton backing. SKIRT LINING: Standard: 70/30 polyester/cotton (78/44 count). DECKING: Decking should be 70/30 polyester/cotton (78/44 count) without sizing or backfill. HEMS: Bottoms should be single needle lock-stitched to prevent unraveling. PLATFORM All dust skirts should have 4 platform strips so decking does not show if mattress slips. STRIPS: Standard: 4 platform strips on 3 sides made from skirt fabric. SIZE: Width and length of box spring plus drop which is normally Many times box springs are narrower than mattresses, therefore it is important that they are measured. Drops should be 1/2 to 1 off the floor.

4 DUST SKIRT SPECIFICATIONS OPTIONS: Fitted Sheet Style Bottom: This is a 4 sided cap that covers the box spring with 1/2 elastic on all four sides and is sewn to the decking and behind the drop of the dust skirt. 4 Fitted Cap: Decking extends over top of bed and closes top corner to minimize slippage. Note: Exact mattress sizes are a must when using a fitted cap. Corner Elastic Bands: 1 Elastic bands across each corner of dust skirt to attach under corners of box spring. Sewn Down Pleats at Top 1 1/2 INSTALLATION: Many hotels use T Pins or upholstery pins effectively, attaching platform strips to box springs. Velcro can also be used as another option.

5 DUST SKIRT STYLES AND DRAWINGS SHIRRED A type of skirt that is created not by sewn in pleating, but rather by drawing up and shirring it together for a gathered look.

10 DUST SKIRTS CARE & CLEANING CLEANING: Hotels that wash dust skirts successfully do so using cold water, mild detergent and cold tumble dry. Heat shrinks some fabric and fades colors in some fabrics. More important, heat flattens polyester fill and has been known to shrink it as well. Hotel laundries should test wash a unit or two under strict controls when new dust skirts arrive. If the laundry feels that the cold wash, and, or, cold dry takes too long, they can try the permanent press settings. However, if any more heat is used, it can be destructive. Once the treatments are successfully test washed, the laundry must be instructed as to their responsibility. No matter how many times the dust skirts are washed successfully, it only takes one washing or drying with too much heat to permanently change the appearance or size of a bedspread. Cotton fabrics become narrower, Avora or Visa fabrics become wider. Caution! If there is any possibility bleaches were used in a previous wash, laundry machines should be scoured before washing dust skirts. Washing machines and dryers should be checked for burrs that may snag fabrics or sewing threads. If hotels are dry cleaning dust skirts, on or off property, they should have a unit or two of a new shipment tested on arrival, checking appearance and size. CIGARETTE BURNS ON AVORA OR VISA FABRICS: The most universal complaint from hotels on Avora and polyester bed coverings is small cigarette holes. They are not actual burns, but holes where cigarette ashes have melted the yarns. To date no one has come up with an acceptable way to repair this type of damage. Many hotels with smoking and non-smoking rooms tag the bed covers with small holes and use them in their smoking rooms. A smoker would not be offended with a small hole caused by a cigarette ash as a non-smoker would.
