Chemical Free Mattress

Share

When we say chemical free latex mattress it goes without saying we are referring to to toxic chemicals… those chemicals that can cause harm to the human body.  The FloBeds Natural Latex Mattress is chemical free in all the right ways.

Organic Cotton Cover

Starting from the top we first find the organic cotton two ply European stretch knit.  The Euro-knit allows the cover to conform to your body and not hammock or interfere with the support characteristics of latex.

 

The cover is quilted to organic wool.  FloBeds has used wool on top of our latex mattresses since the 1990s because of its healthy qualities:  breathability, hollow structure  (wicks away 1/3 its weight in moisture), and comfort.  When the Federal Government started requiring mattresses to be flame resistant, most companies started using chemicals and artificial barriers to make their mattress pass the open flame test.  We passed with organic wool, on all six sides of the mattress (lofted wool as shown below and compressed wool on the sides and bottom).

Not only is the FloBed cover comfortable, healthy and strong… it is beautiful.

Inside the cover it is simple:  the best support material in the world… 100% Natural Talalay Latex.  Made from the milk of the rubber tree.  No blending with synthetic to cut costs.  No mixing with Dunlop latex to save money.  If we could find a better material to put inside our mattress… we would (even if it cost more money).

All of this great material is supported by our Euro Slat foundation.  The sides are made of solid FSC certified sustainable Ponderosa Pine and covered with organic cotton quilted to compressed organic wool.

Contouring bent beech slat suspension provides both give and rotation and constantly respond to the shifting planes of your body, keeping your spine straight and gives just the right amount of support. Bent-Beech Slats are incredibly durable. They won’t break, crack or bend out of shape. (Europeans adopted this Swiss invention 60 years ago.)

This much goodness has not gone un-noticed…

Tips for Back, Side and Stomach Sleepers

Share

VisitingNew York (1)

Did you know that sleeping posture is just as important as sitting posture? It is very vital that you protect your back while you sleep. You put the least amount of pressure on it by sleeping on your back or side. Side sleepers should sleep with a pillow between their knees to keep proper spine alignment. Stomach sleepers specifically should use a smaller pillow to keep your head aligned while sleeping. When purchasing and customizing your FloBeds mattress make sure you keep in mind that stomach sleepers need a firmer mattress than back or side sleepers. If you have more questions please give us a call at 1-800-356-2337 and one of our firmness experts can give you more information on which mattress configuration fits your sleeping position.

Stop Tossing and Turning and Start Sleeping

At FloBeds we pride ourselves in selling latex mattresses specifically. We believe latex is the solution to all of your uncomfortable and restless nights. According to the ErgoCheck system (pictured below) a latex  mattress distributes pressure more evenly than even the most expensive innerspring mattress. The ErgoCheck system is a measuring pad with 648 individual pressure sensors distributed across the testing surface. It shows the physical pressure between the body and mattress to determine pressure points.

Tests have demonstrated that areas with pressure measuring above 32 millimeters of mercury (shown in dark blue) will inhibit blood circulation and cause muscle ache and tossing and turning.

So even science shows you that a Latex mattress is your solution to a better nights sleep.

After researching the qualities of latex mattresses we decided to try it. We were very impressed with the ability to create your own firmness levels to match your body type and preferences. Very easy to put together and the best news – no more back pain!”

  2. Use vacuum to shrink it down to small bag size.
  3. Slide it into smaller bag.

Calling Paul

Share

summer deals!

Have you noticed someone new answering the phone at FloBeds? That is the one and only Paul. He started a few months ago and has become an important part of our team. We interviewed Paul so you can get to know him better:

Q: What do you like about working at FloBeds?

A: I love the atmosphere! When I first started working here I repeatedly asked myself, “What are you doing here pal? You are not a salesman. You hate talking people into anything!” But I soon realized the awesome family aka management, puts no pressure into selling beds. The product is so good it sells itself! All I do is provide service and information, I love it. The office is completely open with all the desks facing each other, whenever I have a question or when someone needs anything we just vocally launch it across the room and answers come flying back. On a typical day we get to hang out and share thoughts about basketball and other tough guy things, while working of course ^_^, oh and there is always nice upbeat music playing.

Q: What is your ideal FloBed model and firmness setup?

A: I am currently sleeping on an Eastern King Deluxe Latex Mattress placed on the Euro Slat Foundation, with the cores setup as medium over firm on top of extra firm. I literally dream about this bed while sleeping on it. I am juggling three jobs and the feeling I get when I come home and melt into this mattress is indescribable. <—- did not mean to sound like an ad.. its just awesome!

Q: Do you prefer Natural or Blended Latex?

A: I tried but I really can’t tell the difference. My bed at home is blended latex and I have taken quite a few quality control office naps on our 100% natural latex version. I have come to the conclusion that more office naps will be required for final judgement.

Q: What do you like about speaking with FloBeds’ customers?

A: I like taking care of people, and I love that everyone who calls in is calling for the same exact reason; they are looking for that good melt into your mattress sleep, and I have been given the tools to help them make it happen. BRING IT ON FRIENDS!!!

 

What Are You Sleeping On?

All Natural Mattress

Our cover provide a soft and plush surface for you to rest your body on after a long day. The Cotton Euro Knit quilted to wool on all six sides makes a FloBed different than the other latex mattresses out there. Our wool is Pure organic Plein-Air Wool® fiber used to promote maximum airflow around your body, and provide natural moisture- wicking. . We don’t use any poly-foam in our covers because it breaks down in 4 or 5 years, it sucks in dust and moisture, and it doesn’t breath. We don’t use a pillow-top in our beds.  The cover should not interfere with the pressure relief and core support of the components beneath.

Since our covers are made with wool it is extremely important to remember that our covers are not machine washable. We do suggest hanging covers out in the sun 1-2 times per year. We also suggest the very popular St. Dormeir Wool Mattress Protector. This mattress protector is completely machine washable. Breathability keeps you cool in the summer, and cozy in the winter, and it lasts years longer than polyester.
