Frequently Asked Questions
The standard Hookless® shower curtains are 74” and 77” lengths. A traditional shower curtain 72” long. Our Hookless header sits above the shower rod, rather than below, so a 74” Hookless is equivalent to a 72” hooked curtain. We offer a 77” length for those using a curved rod. The length of the curtain is determined upon the height of the shower rod installation. We recommend you purchase a curtain where the curtain or the liner sits a minimum of 5” inside the tub.
Polyester and vinyl are synthetic materials and are inherently fire retardant as they will melt versus catch flame. None of our Hookless® products are FR rated.

It’s important to measure the length, width and depth of your mattress to get the best fit for your encasement. Our encasements are designed to fit snug on your mattress. This provides a better night’s sleep for your guests, makes it easier for housekeeping when changing the linens, and prevents liquid from pooling in the folds of excess fabric. Our encasements have about 2 inches of stretch in them.
A mattress protector goes over your mattress like a fitted sheet and protects your mattress against stains and spills. An encasement covers all sides of your mattress is bed bug entry and escape proof. Protect-A-Bed’s AllerZip Smooth and BugLock Plus encasements provide bed bug protection with a waterproof protection to solve both problems in one product.
70% of a bed bug infestation will be within the mattress and box spring. The infestation will begin in the box spring as it provides ample space for them to hide and lay their eggs in. From the box spring they will move up to the mattress. If you cover just the mattress they will still live in the box spring, and if you only encapsulate the box spring, they will begin to infest the mattress first. To be most effective in protecting your investment you will need to encapsulate both the mattress and box spring.
No. While we recommend you purchase an encasement with waterproof protection like our AllerZip Smooth or BugLock Plus, we do offer our Bedding Encasement which is bed bug entry and escape proof, but does not offer protection from stains and spills. The bedding encasement is ideal for use on your box spring where you would not need waterproof protection, but can also be used on your mattress.
Most standard mattress pads do not offer any type of protection from soiling or staining the mattress. If something were to spill on a mattress pad, the moisture will soak through the pad and could still stain the mattress. Our Waterproof Quilted mattress protector provides the comfort of a mattress pad with the waterproof barrier of a mattress protector for a 2-in-1 solution.
Storage & Shelving
Stationary posts come with leveling feet and the ability to add threaded casters separately to convert to a mobile unit later on. Mobile posts do not have leveling feet and must always be used with stem casters. If you’re looking for the flexibility to use your wire shelving as stationary or mobile, select stationary posts. If you’re sure you’re going to use your shelving as a mobile cart and are looking for a higher weight rating, select mobile posts. Threaded casters have a load rating of 200 lbs each, so your shelving unit has a total weight capacity of 800 lbs. Stem casters have a load rating of 300 lbs each, so your shelving unit would have a total weight capacity of 1200 lbs.
You can create your own shelving unit by ordering posts and shelves individually. We have created kits of the most popular sizes, but there is no upcharge to order by piece rather than in our kits. We offer mobile and stationary posts in 3 different heights and 7 different shelf lengths. Remember, the top of your unit and the bottom of your unit is 2 shelves, so be sure to order the correct number of shelves.
