San Francisco Giants 2010 World Champion Trophy with Dave

Go Giants

Due to unbelievable circumstances we will be shutting down three of our facilities early: The Latex Shop, Wood Shop and Shipping will all need to close by 4:30 PM to get out in front of the first pitch.
Go Giants!


Oh yeah… don’t forget
to take advantage of our Halloween Special

(Mayor Dave gets first dibs on the 2010 trophy when the Giants brought it to Fort Bragg) (and that means fewer natural latex mattresses will get shipped:(

FloBeds Passes Open Flame test, Naturally

Organic Wool - Comfort and Fire Resistant, Naturally

Standard for the Flammability of Mattress Sets (Open Flame Test)

Consumer Product Safety Commission – 16 CFR Part 1633:

Once again… FloBeds is out in front, leading an industry to comfort and safety… naturally!

The Federal Standard came into force July of 2007. The new standard required mattresses and foundations to be able to withstand an open flame for 50 seconds on the side and 70 seconds on the top without igniting. Most companies use FR chemicals or other artificial components to pass this test… FloBeds is proud to use only wool to make our mattresses meet this standard.

Federal Fire Standards require mattress to withstand open flame.
A conventional mattress is in flames in just a few minutes compared to a mattress that complies with the federal open-flame standard, on the right.

FloBeds passed the test using Wool as a fire barrier!

Natural before it was “Green”.
At FloBeds, we construct our natural latex mattresses with what folks now-a-days call Green materials, like natural rubber, organic cotton and Plein-Air Wool, not because we are jumping on the green bandwagon to sell our wares, but because it is the right thing to do.  And because, that’s how we have always done it.
