What Are The Types Of Mattress?

There are 7 different types of mattresses available nearby. The mattresses are made of other materials and are also differently constructed. The 7 mattress types are:

  • Polyether foam mattresses
  • Cold foam mattresses
  • Memory foam mattresses
  • Inner suspension mattresses
  • Pocket suspension mattresses
  • air suspension mattresses
  • Latex mattresses
  • Talalay Latex mattresses


8 Types Of Mattress

Polyether foam mattress

Polyether mattresses are usually the cheapest mattresses. The hardness of these polyether mattresses depends on how much air is in the mattress. This is referred to as Specific Weight (SG). A mattress with SG40 has polyether foam that weighs 40 kilograms per cubic meter. In general, a polyether foam mattress with a high SG is harder and more durable than a polyether foam mattress with a low SG. Polyether foam mattresses with a low SG are, therefore, most suitable for children.


Cold foam mattress

Cold foam mattresses are not made at a high temperature during manufacture. Cold foam has an open-cell structure, making the material breathe very well and absorb moisture well. A big advantage of cold foam mattresses is that the chance of silage formation is minimal. Cold foam mattresses, therefore, have a long service life. Cold foam mattresses are very comfortable; this is mainly because these mattresses are very resilient.


Memory foam mattress

Many different names are used for these types of mattresses. Usually, memory foam mattresses are also called NASA mattresses. This is because NASA developed the memory foam. Memory foam mattresses don’t really consist of memory foam. Memory foam mattresses consist partly of a pocket suspension base or a cold foam base. The memory foam layer is therefore pasted over this base. A distinction can also be made between cast memory foam mattresses and foamed memory foam mattresses. Cast memory foam mattresses are, as a rule, cheaper and of lower quality. With cast memory foam mattresses, a plastic layer is put around the foam in the production process, making the mattress breathe less well than a foamed memory foam mattress. The lifespan of a cast memory foam mattress is also significantly lower. The lifespan of a cast memory foam mattress is at most 4 to 5 years. The lifespan of a foamed memory foam mattress is considerably longer, namely at most 15 years. A big advantage of memory foam mattresses is that they adapt to the shape of the body. This gives your entire body good support.


Inner suspension mattress

Inner suspension mattresses are made up of feathers. A distinction can be made between Bonell inner suspension mattresses and LFK inner suspension mattresses. Bonell inner suspension mattresses are only suitable for flat bottoms. LFK inner suspension mattresses have higher flexibility than Bonell inner suspension mattresses and are suitable for adjustable bottoms. Both the mattresses with Bonell feathers and LFK feathers have high durability. A big advantage of inner suspension mattresses is the ventilation because it is excellent. This is because there is a lot of air between the feathers, and air can easily be moved. Most inner suspension mattresses have separate zones for the shoulders and hips that allow them to sink deeper into the mattress. The lying comfort of inner suspension mattresses mainly depends on the material used for the top layer.


Pocket suspension mattress

The feathers with a pocket suspension mattress are considerably smaller than with an inner suspension mattress. With a pocket suspension mattress, each spring is individually packed in textiles. A big advantage of this is that the feathers can move separately from each other. In addition to the feathers, the mattresses are also made up of foam layers. Between the foam layers are the pockets (feathers in textiles). This structure provides a lot of stability. Pocket suspension mattresses usually have comfort zones that ensure that your entire body gets the right back pressure—this concerns, in particular, the shoulders and hips. Pocket suspension mattresses have a smooth coating that ensures good moisture removal. It is often possible to get a removable cover around the mattress to clean yourself at home. This makes pocket suspension mattresses very attractive for allergy sufferers.


Air suspension mattress

An air suspension mattress can be compared to a waterbed. The core of the mattress consists of a vinyl bag. This bag is filled with air. This vinyl bag is enclosed by latex or cold foam. A big advantage of air suspension mattresses is that they are infinitely adjustable so that you can easily change the hardness of the mattress. The main advantage of air suspension mattresses is the support that these mattresses provide to the body. Air suspension mattresses provide even support of the body. This ensures a huge lying comfort. An important disadvantage of air suspension mattresses is that the air pressure of the air in the vinyl bag reacts to the ambient temperature. This can suddenly change the hardness of the mattress.


Latex mattress

Latex mattresses are made up of a combination of synthetic latex and natural latex. Latex mattresses offer a very high lying comfort because they can perfectly adapt to the body. The latex mattress has built up a great reputation with a large audience in a short time and quite rightly. The big advantage of this material is that it is unprecedentedly resilient and that also remains durable. Depending on the latex used and the presence of air ducts, these mattresses can range from exceptionally soft to quite firm. In all cases, they are always flexible enough to be applied to adjustable bed bases. Latex is, therefore, a serious recommendation. We use a latex partly made of natural (extracted from the rubber tree) as of synthetic origin (oil). Our latex combines the advantages of both variants! Our latex mattresses are always equipped with 5 comfort zones and have ventilation ducts that ensure improved moisture absorption and air circulation in the mattress.


Talalay Latex mattress

Unlike standard latex, Talalay latex does have an open-cell structure, making the material a good air permeability. The lifespan of Talalay latex mattresses is also a lot higher than with normal latex mattresses. The intensity of the Talalay Latex production process gives substantial advantages but also a serious price difference. Tests have shown that there is only an 11% drop in stiffness after 10 years of tax – and that’s not the first time there’s been a 10%- 10%- drop in tax. The core was loaded 80,000 times, weighing 75 kilos. Due to the open cell structure, the Talalay Latex mattress is up to 30% cooler than the traditional Latex core.
