|Conventional Foam Mattresses: Conventional foam mattresses are good for all around comfort and support. The foam is both soft to give you maximum comfort, yet firm enough to promote proper support for your body.
Memory Foam (AKA Slow Recovery Foam, ViscoElastic, Visco-Elastic) Mattresses / Toppers / Pads: The Memory Foam Toppers molds to all the contours of your body, giving your neck, shoulders, back, & feet the proper support. Because of this, pressure is evenly distributed, preventing pressure points and allowing proper support; allowing a much better blood circulation through out the body. All this equates to less tossing & turning, and allowing your body to rest & sleep more soundly.
Eggcrate Foam (AKA Convoluted Foam) Toppers / Pads: Convoluted (eggcrate) Foam offers increased air circulation, support for the body, and makes firm mattresses softer. This makes the Eggcrate Foam a great topper for an existing mattress.
(Convoluted toppers can be used with bumps facing up or down.)
Latex Foam Mattresses / Toppers / Pads: Latex Mattresses are hypo-allergenic. It breathes to keep you warm in the winter, and cool in the summer. Latex Mattresses provide maximum support, and pressure relief. This means no more aching back, nor aches and pains caused from other mattress (particularly non-foam mattress & short lasting foam) that give poor support and pressure relief.
Camping Pads / Foam Pads: Can be used for both indoor and outdoor use, these foam pads are soft yet firm enough to reduce or eliminate the uncomfortable feel of laying / sitting on a hard or rough surface. Also, the foam contains a waterproof "skin" or "crust" backing that water cannot travel through - great for damp ground and makes it easy to brush off dirt.
FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
What is Density? What is Compression / Firmness? Is there a difference?
Yes, there is a big difference between density & firmness of a particular foam. First I will discuss density, then compression (ILD)...
Density: Technically, it is taking one solid chunk of particular piece of foam sized 12" x 12" x 12", and weighing it by pounds. The more dense the cube is, the more likely that particular foam has more quality, thus is more resilient and durable. (This is true only if the foam is not filled or "load" with additives that just add weight to the foam. Rest assured, this is NOT done to our foams.)
ILD (Indentation Load Deflection): Technically, taking a 24" x 24" x 4" (or no smaller) chunk of foam, and compressing it with a 50 square inch circular foot down 1 inch (25% compression test), measuring in pounds the force needed to compress the foam. The higher the number, the firmer the foam, & the lower the number, the softer the foam.
Can I order a custom made mattress?
Yes, please contact us for pricing on custom mattresses.
What are the standard mattress sizes?
Cal King: 72"x80"
If the topper / mattress does not come with a cover, should I cover it?
Yes, a cover on any foam product will lengthen life by reducing or eliminating wear, tear, and dirt. We do have covers available for purchase.
Memory Foam Questions
What is Visco-Elastic foam (aka Memory Foam)?
Originally designed by NASA to provide pressure relief during the intense G-Forces of space shuttle take offs. This type of foam is visco-elastic, open-celled, and temperature sensitive, all of which allows it to provide body-molding and pressure relief capabilities.
Is Memory Foam the same as Latex Foam?
No, memory foams and latex foams are two different foam types.
Which density should I get?
4.5 Lb White: Suggested for people who want high quality memory foam at a great price.
5.5 Lb Peach: Suggested for people who want the best & highest quality memory foam at a good price. (Similar in quality to Tempur-Pedic's Memory Foam)
Which thickness should I get?
2" Thickness: Suggested for people who sleep on their stomach, or looking for the most inexpensive, yet effective memory foam pad. Stomach sleepers have a tendency to have lower back problems due to the sleepers back sloping down into the mattress. Any pad thicker than 2" will most likely not help their condition.
3" Thickness: Suggested for side, back, or combination of sleeping positions (except for people who ONLY sleep on their stomach). This is the thickness TempurPedic (R) uses for their mattresses, and is a standard for most mattresses. A 3" inch memory pad will provide the perfect balance of contour molding and support capabilities.
4" Thickness: Also suggested for any one or several sleeping positions (except for people who ONLY sleep on their stomach). Also good for heavy (non-stomach) sleepers. This will have a more softer feeling to it, and you will receive even more pressure relieve than the 2" or 3" pad.
Latex Foam Questions
Is Latex Foam the same as Memory Foam?
No, latex foams and memory foams are two different foam types.
Is the Latex Foam you sell natural or synthetic?
The Talalay latex foam we carry is 100% natural latex foam.
What is the difference between Standard and Talalay latex?
The Talalay process results in a more resilient, longer lasting latex. Standard is less resilient that Talalay. The feel of the Talalay is more springy and the Standard feels more marshmallowy. That's why we recommend our Talalay Latex over Standard Latex.
