Englander Mattress compared with
FloBeds Latex Mattress

(note: every FloBed is a Talalay Latex Mattress:)Quoted from a site with Englander Latex Mattresses:
(our comments in Blue-Green)

Latex Mattress

Our latex inner unit is the same one that is used in all of Englander’s latex mattresses sold in the Pacific Northwest. It is 100% pure latex. The ticking is a 60% cotton blend to allow for breathability. The ticking is quilted to polyester fiber and a thin layer of polyurethane foam to provide a deep pattern.

This polyurethane foam acts to stop air flow and maintain heat.  Poly-foam looks
like a million bucks when quilted, but doesn’t last or breath….and harbors dust mites.

We also put a layer of fiber pad over the latex unit so that the mattress retains a nice “crowned” look. This prevents the bed from looking blocky when made up with sheets, blankets and comforter. However;some other makers use a latex / synthetic blend. We feel that 100% pure natural latex is superior to blends of synthetic latex. Natural latex is more resilient than blends, thus, it will bounce back to its original shape for many years of sleeping comfort.

All FloBeds FloCare latex mattresses are made made with Talalay Latex.
Latex International’s flagship product, Talatech Latex, is a blend of 30% natural rubber and 70% synthetic rubber. Our 100% Natual Latex System is now also made by Latex International with the Talalay process. FloBeds Natural Latex is produced using no fillers or shortcuts. It is made from 100% Latex Rubber from the Rubber Tree.Then it is poured into the latex mold..  A vacuum is applied to the mold to remove air pockets.Flash freezing insures consistency and will allow the Talatech Latexto be made in variations of softness and  firmness unequaled by any other latex manufacturer in the world.(From 4ild to 70 ild…our beds range from 20ild to 40ild)Then it’s heated and cured which gives the latex a lifetime of support and durability.A five stage washer removes any residue.  It takes 3 to 4 hours to make a latex mattress core.

The Latex core is made with pincore construction which helps keeps the mattress cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

The density of our latex foam is an impressive 3.4 lbs./cu.ft. There are 3 important reasons for this heavy density. They are:

1. Long life. We expect this bed to have a 15-20 year service life. The more material, the greater the life.

2. Exceptional comfort and support. Foam that is less dense must be made stiffer to prevent full compression, or a feeling of sinking deeply into the surface. Stiffer, low density foam is less comfortable and breaks down quickly.

3. Our Englander Latex Mattress is designed to be a premium, t-op of the line
mattress. When we designed this bed, the goal was to make the best, not achieve a certain price. We have achieved our goal.  Latex foam unlike polyurethane foam, is poured into a mold that is the product endshape and simply dries. Polyurethane foam is poured onto a large -table and then rises to form a “bun” that is then cut into several finished foam products.

Natural latex foam compresses differently than poly foam. Latex compresses
throughout its entire structure as weight is applied. This equally distributes the
mechanical burden of compression and creates a soft surface with underlying
support. Most poly foam compresses from the surface, with interior compression
occurring only under extreme load. This means that the surface foam does most of
the work and is subject to wear. The bottom line in foam is that the greater the
density, the longer the foam will last. Natural latex can be made very dense and, sinceit compresses through its full length, is still very comfortable.

I mentioned that our latex mattress has a density of 3.4 lbs./cu.ft. To determine this
we actually measured and weighed a foam piece to calculate density. Since our
Englander Latex Mattress features pincore construction (the latex unit is pierced with a series of pencil diameter holes to enhance breathability), the actual material density is somewhat greater.

Sunday Night Sleep Tips

Share

 

Here are some great tips to help make your Sunday nights a little easier:

  1. Keep the same bedtime on weekends. Staying up late two nights out of the week will throw off your sleep schedule and make it hard to wake up on Monday morning.
  2. Avoid sleeping in on weekends. Do not sleep more than one or two hours past your normal wake-up time.
  3. Enjoy your Sunday night. Plan a fun Sunday night ritual, that way you can look forward to Sunday evenings instead of dreading them.
  4. Prep for bedtime. “…pamper yourself pre-bed with a warm bath, a cup of tea, or a good book to help you relax.” –Sleep.org

If all of the above fails, its time to think about a latex mattress ;-)

So she called the FloBeds team and was told over the phone what changes she could make to start sleeping comfortably. The great thing about purchasing a FloBed is we are only one call away.

4 Sleep Tips for Success

Share

 

Here are some pointers on how the right bedroom setup can help you sleep better. Check these tips off your list and your will be on your way to dreamland in no time.

  1. A custom mattress: Many people sleep on mattresses that are too firm or too soft. FloBeds can be customized, so your mattress can fit your body and sleeping habits just right. Our latex mattresses are extremely supportive and the layers in the mattresses can be switched around to achieve different firmnesses.
  2. The right height frame: Make sure it isn’t too difficult to get in and out of bed because of your bed frame height. Even the rules of Funghi suggest you pay attention to the height of your frame. FloBeds offers various height legs so you can find the best one that fit your needs.
  3. The right sleep temperature: Research shows that your bedroom should be between 60-67 degrees Fahrenheit. Invest in a smart thermostat to make sure your room is the right temperature.
  4. The right humidity: “Extreme weather conditions impact our mood, our health, and can even our sleep. When the air has a high humidity concentration, we feel hot and sweaty – which means uncomfortable sleep. When the air is too dry, on the other end, our skin, eye and nasal passages dry out which is also uncomfortable.”-Huff Post According to the National Sleep Foundation your room should always be at 50% humidity.

Another 5 Star Review: Creating Balance

Dear Dave,

I have been waiting to write to you about the bed I bought back in October 2015. I wanted to make sure it wasn’t a fluke. First, Dewey was great walking me through and helping me pick the layers to best suit my sleeping needs. Second, being a single woman I was amazed at the ease of getting the bed delivered to my front door, me getting the sections upstairs, and assembling it in the bedroom. Third, and most incredible–I am so comfortable! I sleep soundly all night! I am in love with my FloBed! It has exceeded my expectations, my back no longer hurts or aches. I am so happy and grateful.

Thank you,

Margy
