Fun Fact Friday: Going Online

September 29th, 2015


Did you know that back in 1995 we put our new pressure relief mattress on the World Wide Web with the idea of providing hospitals and institutions with information? Virtually no facilities came… but boy did the rest of the world! Soon we were shipping our components around the world. Back when going online was a new concept, FloBeds was smart enough to take advantage of the new technology.

Natural Talalay Latex vs. Blended Talalay Latex

September 29th, 2015

Many customers ask- what is the difference between Natural and Original Blended Latex? Well look, touch and feel is the same. Natural Latex is made with 100% Natural Talalay and produced using no fillers, petrochemicals. The Natural is made with 100% milk from the rubber tree. We source our Natural Latex from Radium in the Netherlands. FloBeds 100% Natural Latex is biodegradable and Oekotex Certified (Europe’s highest environmental consumer product standard) to be free of harmful substances or chemicals.

Original Latex is blended 70% synthetic and 30% natural latex. Our Original Latex come for Latex International. All of our latex is naturally hypo-allergenic, anti-microbial (Bacteria, mold and mildew cannot live in latex) and dust mite resistant (tests prove latex is 3 times more resistant to dust mites than a traditional mattress) making it the perfect mattress material for allergy sufferers or anyone interested in breathing fresh, clean air while they sleep.

Bright-Eyed and Bushy-Tailed Students

September 23rd, 2015

Inside the student mattress

It always seemed like my parents had a better mattress than me. Well, FloBed parents do not make the same mistake. Here is some great news: we sell a version of your mattress that is perfect for your kids!

The Student Mattress features two layers of Talalay Latex to make a 6″ mattress. We use our same Euro Stretch knit organic cotton that we use in all our mattresses. For students we quilted needled wool on all sides to provide a cool Tite-Top surface that breathes and wicks away moisture. And since wool is naturally fire resistant, we don’t have to add chemicals or artificial barriers to meet the Federal Flame Resistant Standard. We use blems, minor defects or laminated cores to create the highly affordable Student Mattress. Per special request, we can make a student mattress out of first quality cores for $100 more.

No more excuses. Nothing but bright-eyed and bushy-tailed smiling students every morning. Ok, maybe we won’t guarantee that, but you know we can guarantee the rest you & your students need!

We Stand Behind Our Mattresses

August 18th, 2015


“My husband and I spent two years researching and trying out organic and all natural mattresses from manufacturers such as OMI, Savvy Rest, and Hastens before deciding on a Flobeds mattress. We took a road trip to Fort Bragg just to try out the mattresses and we could not be happier with our purchase.

My husband is a rotating shift worker and a good night’s sleep is extremely important. When our Costco latex mattress started to sag in the middle after only a few years we decided it was time to upgrade to a mattress with a longer life and better support. When I read the research on the chemicals used in cheap latex mattresses and the off-gassing that occurs with chemically stabilized talalay latex I quickly became convinced of the need for an all-natural and organic alternative. I also spent a lot of time comparing Dunlop latex vs. talalay latex mattresses and was reassured to learn that the process Flobeds uses to create their talalay latex is all natural without any chemicals used to stabilize the latex. There is no question that Flobeds is offering a top-of-the-line quality product at a significant discount than their competitors.

Following over an hour of extensive showroom research we decided that a Z-Zone talalay latex mattress was the right fit for us (v-zone over firm over extra firm). We also bought the euro slat foundation and like the flexible support if offers. The bed shipped in a week and was easy to assemble as per the instructions and online video.

What should really be noted is the exceptional level of customer service. Our salesperson, Dewey, was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful and his father Dave was also a delight to work with. We both love the sleep firmness guarantee and plan on buying a medium or soft layer to accommodate a possibly pregnancy in the next few years.

This was a major purchase for us and we really felt more comfortable dealing with a company that will stand behind our mattress. With over 33 years in the business, Flobeds is obviously leading the industry in quality and customer service. ”
