There are many more uses and benefits our Memory Foam Mattresses / Memory Foam Overlays (Toppers) and Memory Foam Pillows / Memory Foam Cushions provide.
As always with relatively new products, there seems to be a great deal of confusion about memory foam, i.e., what quality and depth to use, which density is best etc. etc.
The products generally available on the market range considerably in depth and density from around 2.5cm ( 1”) to over 12.5 cm(5”) and densities between 2lbs to over 5lbs per cft.
All these products offer the same effectiveness and benefits and proclaim that they are the best, yet they differ vastly in quality and price. As you will appreciate, this surely cannot be right and does not make sense.
After extensive research it is our clear conclusion that generally the most suitable depth of memory foam is 7 cm (2.8”) and the preferable density should be 60 kg cm3 or 4 lbs cft. This also applies to memory foam overlays for heavy and frequent use and most pillows and cushions.
Memory foam overlays for infrequent and lighter use could be sufficient with a depth of 5 cm (2”), but should still have a density of 60 kg per cm3 or 4 lbs per cft.
All our ExtraComfort Memory Foam Mattresses, ExtraComfort Memory Foam Overlays (Toppers) and our Memory Foam Pillows / Memory Foam Cushions have been produced to meet our above guidelines, they undergo the strictest quality controls and are manufactured to the highest quality only using a branded premium Restore® Visco Elastic Memory Foam.
We are not convinced that a lesser depth or density of memory foam will give you sufficient comfort and benefits.
On the other hand, we are not convinced either that it is necessary to exceed a density of 60 kg cm3 / 4 lbs cft. or a depth of 7cm (2.8”) for the following reasons:
1) We can see no apparent benefit in exceeding our guidelines other than maximizing the profits of the manufacturers, as any increase in depth and density will also (at times drastically) increase the product price (as in 6lb viscoelastic memory foam mattresses).
2) A depth beyond 7 cm (2.8”) could negatively affect your overall comfort, as you might sink too deep into the MF.
A lot of cheap MF products, mainly imported and of very poor quality are currently entering the market. Be rest assured, that if you buy an inferior or unsuitable MF product, you will be wasting your money as it will be of very little or no benefit to you. If in any doubt, please consult your GP. We do not sell products made from discount memory foam and therefore any cheap MF mattress/topper which are mass produced normally in the Far East and do not come anywhere near the standards we set ourselves.
Our products are a brand name, premium quality and are subjected to the strictest quality controls and manufactured in the UK. All of our MF products comply with British Standards BS 5852: Part 2: 1982, Furniture & Furnishings (Fire) (Safety) Regulations 1988.
Finally, you will often see that manufacturers and retailers alike compare their own products to “Tempur” MF products (tempurpedic memory foam mattress) . “Tempur” were the first major company to launch MF products on a commercial basis, have done and are doing very well and there can be no doubt that their products are of good quality. They are also very expensive.
Our products are equally of premium quality and substantially cheaper than Tempurs, so what is the point in continuously comparing them to Tempur?
This is an entirely negative approach to ones own products that shows a degree of uncertainty and insecurity amongst Tempur's competitors, which we fail to understand. You are either convinced of the quality of your products, or you are not.
We have the certainty and conviction that our products in terms of quality and price are the best available on the market and see no need of continuous comparisons to “Tempur”. We’ll let you be the judge of our products!
