Some mattress makers wrap their latex in individual covers. It looks fancier and lends a misperceived added value to the product. Kind of like putting little bows on the end of pork chops. We don’t wrap our latex. Check out the video and find out why.
Here’s the transcript:
Because our natural latex mattresses are not glued together, there’s a common belief that the latex layers will bunch and shift when you sleep on it. In fact, this is a common question that we get. To the contrary, our experience has shown otherwise.
Rubber has a high coefficient of friction, it’s just a fancy way of saying that it sticks together easily. When we stack three pieces of latex on top of each other, they wanna grip together because of the natural stickiness and significant weight of the latex. As we raise one edge of the board and increase the incline, you’ll notice the latex doesn’t shift, bunch, or slide off of each other.
Next, we will put the layers of latex on an incline plain. Then we will roll a 30-pound weight down down the plain. Again, the layers won’t bunch or shift. The natural properties of latex want to make them stick together. Once encased inside a zipper cover, the latex has more help in staying in place.
We love the renewability and flexibility of a zipper cover with multiple layers. It affords you a lot of options to make the mattress more comfortable and last ten years. Plus, it avoids having to use any adhesives in our mattress.
In the chance the layers do shift, which we’ve seen happen even in glued mattresses, you can easily unzip and re-position the latex. One thing to keep in mind, when moving or transporting your mattress, please disassemble and remove the layers from the zipper cover for easy handling.
If you have any questions about how our latex layers stay inside our zipper cover and don’t bunch or move, feel free to give us a call, send us an email, we’re happy to help.
