Harnessing The Power of the Elements
Compounding - Compounds are made only from 100% natural latex, tapped from a rubber tree with no fillers or additives
Vulcanizing - Steam cure technique creates core engineered with thousands of stainless steel pinholes of the right size and shape to give the most efficient vulcanization. This makes our latex comfortable and durable . These pins keep the natural latex characteristics undisturbed through the vulcanizing process.
Washing - A multi-cycle washing method using drinkable quality water ensures clean and pure latex mattress cores.
Drying and conditioning - Drying and conditioning by drying mechanism is enhances the natural feel of the product and eliminates all residual moisture.
Understanding I.L.D. Measurements
We offer the following latex ILDS: Soft: 18-22, Medium: 23-27,
Firm: 34-38, and Extra Extra Firm 45-49
I.L.D., or Indentation load deflection is measured by putting a 15x15x4 specimen of latex in a machine known as an indentometer and measuring the weight required to push the latex down to different levels of compression. The three step process reads in order of normal pressure (25% compression), extreme pressure (65% compression), and then back to normal (25% compression.) For a better mattress utilizing Chemical Free Latex and Celliant explore our Theta Performance Mattress, it is a great option for those seeking a supportive and rejuvinating rest experience!
The indention level is calculated according to pressure divided by thickness to help provide an explanation of how much weight each density naturally holds. When customizing remember that stacking cores with different density readings provides unique results. An I.L.D. rating of 10 lbs. at 25% means that it takes 10 lbs. to compress the foam 25%. At 65% the I.L.D. rating changes dramatically and will have a significantly higher figure thanks to the materials natural reflex. After compression at 65% readings are retested at 25% to ensure proper reflex. 25% is generally the I.L.D. rating for a person of normal body weight and the reading that we generally use to categorize our latex.
Pocketed Spring Coil Mattresses For No motion Transfer
Traditional mattresses and their bouncy interconnected springs are the direct cause of most motion transfer issues for couples. Those using interconnected metal springs may notice discomfort every time their partner shifts while sleeping. For this reason our collection features individually pocketed micro-coils that cease motion transfer from spring to spring. Each micro-coil is made from recycled double tempered steel and encased in its own fabric pocket rather than woven together resulting in no transfer of pressure or bounce that cannot be felt from one coil to the next. With no motion between rows, layers, or even spring to spring you don’t have to worry about waking your partner before they are ready. For active couples we have added Micro Coils to our Performance line, the Delta Performance Mattress is just for you!
Greener Choices For Your Health
Natural futon mattresses made with environmentally friendly soybean oil contains no fire retardants. As most foams contain carcinogenic chemicals in the form of fire retardants that severely damage the immune system of adults and children we have chosen this Hybrid Foam which reduces significantly the chances of off gassing in your home.
Due to the rise in demand for foam furniture we have designed many of our products with Soy Based Foams, Soy Based Cooling Gels, and Soy Based Memory Foams. Not only are Soy Foams cooler, more durable, and more dense but they greatly reduce harm to the environment and sleeper that regular foams may cause. For shape-conforming comfort, eco-friendly properties, and the tremendous cooling benefits it provides when compared to standard foams choose Soy Based Foam mattresses from The Futon Shop. Our gel cooling options with Celliant are sure to keep you cool no matter what the circumstance is. Check the Alpha Performance Mattress for complete cooling comfort that conforms to your body!
Cooler, Supportive, Safer
These Gel Memory Foam Futon mattresses are similar to standard memory foam except for the fact that it's been infused with a special gel and engineered with soy based oil. Not only does the cooling effect of these foams provide ideal comfort in the summer, but the swirling cooling gel also does a number of things to correct the shortcomings of standard memory foam. You may be asking why we advocate the use of soy based foams? How much impact does replacing harmful toxins with soybean oil actually have? Did you know that whether it is Tempurpedic, Vera Wang, Serta, Simmons or Sealy the memory foam used is 90% petroleum based? Due to familiarity consumers have with memory foam furniture we have decided to bring safer foam options into our line by introducing soy infused memory foams.
Fire Safe, Fit For Your Home
In accordance with Federal law all Mattresses must be fire retardant. Mattresses that do not utilize wool as a natural fire barrier must contain borate as a natural flame retardant. Borate, also known as Borax is found to be safe for use as a fire retardant and found in natural ecosystems. Since we are here every step of the way to bring you customizable options we offer any mattress as a chemical free option with a prescription from your healthcare provider we can manufacture this mattress without borate. Please give us a call at 1-800-443-8866 for more information on our non-borate organic mattresses or email your Dr’s note to DrNote@thefutonshop.com.
