What Makes a Mattress Eco-friendly?

An eco-friendly mattress is a mattress that is going to inflict minimal to no harm on the environment. Our eco-friendly options are recyclable from top to bottom. We have a variety of eco-friendly fabrics in which we wrap our mattresses; from Organic Cotton to natural Bamboo, and even Aloe Vera infused fabric.

Our eco-friendly options contain layers of natural latex rubber, which is a naturally harvested, biodegradable product that is hypoallergenic and anti-microbial. Latex is a very durable product that is breathable and sleeps temperature neutral. The other fantastic thing about latex is that bacteria, mildew, and mold simply cannot live in it and it is three times more resistant to dust mites than any other material used in making a mattress.

We also use our CoolSleep memory foam in some of eco-friendly options. Our memory foam has an open cell structure, which allows you to sleep eight times cooler than you would on a traditional memory foam mattress. Memory foam is a man made component that contains polyurethane and will off gas. Memory foam fits into our eco-friendly line not because it is 100% natural, but because it is going to inflict minimal to no harm on the environment and can be recycled.

We do not use any fire retardant barriers that are treated or have added chemicals. Our fire retardant barrier is an inherent flame resistant rayon fabric. We use a plant-based eco-foam as the core in these mattresses. They are eco-friendly and they also present a fantastic support system that will supply you with proper spinal alignment all through the night. These mattresses are healthy options that have no lasting impact on the environment.

What are the differences between Latex and Memory Foam?

Memory Foam and Latex both offer a great deal of pressure point relief. Both products will reduce the overall pressure placed on your joints by contouring to your body shape. They are also both excellent at eliminating motion transfer.

Memory foam is heat activated, which is what allows it to conform around your body shape. Memory foam is firmer in cold temperatures and softer when warm, as it works with body heat to mold around the body. The heat-reactive property in memory foam is oftentimes what causes people to elect not to purchase a memory foam mattress. Because of this we use a memory foam with an open cell structure that is designed to sleep eight times cooler than a traditional memory foam.  The open cell structure allows the air to flow more freely through the material, which pills moisture and heat away from the sleeper. Latex is breathable and sleeps temperature neutral, a great solution for those who sleep a little warm during the night. Latex will help to keep you warm in cold conditions and cool in warmer conditions.

Memory foam is polyurethane foam with additional chemicals to enhance the elastic viscosity and density features allowing the foam to “mold” around your body. Latex is a naturally derived, biodegradable product that comes from the rubber tree. Naturally, latex has hypoallergenic and anti-microbial properties, which is ideal for people that suffer from allergies. Bacteria, mold, and mildew simply cannot live in latex and it is three times more resistant to dust mites than any other material used in making a mattress. Latex mattresses are very durable as the latex (rubber) material doesn’t easily breakdown or age and therefore it holds its shape and resolve for years.

There are a variety of feels that you can get with a memory foam mattress and we use a range of memory foams from an 8lb, which is very soft, to a 3lb, quite firm, to achieve different feels and firmnesses. Latex is rated by an ILD, which is the indentation load deflection. The ILDs range from a 19, very soft, to a 32, which is on the firmer side. Latex mattresses have a different feel than memory foam mattresses in that you sleep on top of it as opposed to “in it.” Latex and memory foam are both exceptional products with many similarities, as well as their fair share of differences. Now it’s just deciding which one better fits your needs.

What Type of Flame Retardant Materials are Used in Mattresses Today?

We are constantly asked “Does this mattress have any flame retardant chemicals?” and “What type of flame retardant products are used in this mattress?” Well, we are here to answer your questions. We utilize an inherent fire resistant rayon fabric to meet the Federal fire safety standard of Consumer Products Safety Council Standard CFR 1633.

The rayon yarn that makes up the fabric is not treated before or after it is manufactured with chemicals. The rayon we use is not the same type of “rayon” used in clothing or other consumer products. The rayon used is a high loft fire barrier and is an engineered fiber yarn consisting of silica wrapped in a rayon sheath, a picture of the yarn is below on a microscopic level. This spun yarn has patented properties that when exposed to flame, the core of the yarn creates a strong skeletal framework that holds the char in place blocking flames from penetrating the fabric and spreading. Another picture is attached of the yarn when exposed to flame on a microscopic level – the thread turns into a web of yarn creating the flame barrier. This web like expansion stops fire from spreading, chars the fabric, and allows the fabric to be self extinguishing.  All of this is done through the design of how the yarn is spun/created and does not involve pre or post treatment with chemicals. We hope this information is helpful to you and that you are able to rest easy tonight.

Is a Foam Mattress Hot?

When considering the benefits of a foam sleep surface, many consumers ask us, “Is a foam mattress hot?”  To answer that question we first need to look at the different types of foam on the market.

A type that is gaining in popularity is latex foam.  Used for over a century as a sleeping surface, it has enjoyed a comeback over the last decade.  Many people love sleeping on a latex mattress.  It provides relatively firm support that gives sleepers a feeling of sleeping “on, not in” it.

On the other hand, memory foam, originally developed by NASA in the 1960s for astronaut use, is best known for the way it reacts to the sleeper’s body shape, literally molding itself to the curves and contours of his or her body.  Many people find that sleeping on memory foam relieves back and neck pain, helps them to sleep deeper, and wake more refreshed.

When shopping for either a latex or memory foam mattress, it’s important to make sure that the one you choose is made from quality materials.  Inferior ones use cheap foam that was made with harsh chemicals or has excessively large amounts of air pumped into it.  These products frequently cause allergic reactions in those who use them, due to the dangerous compounds used in their manufacture.  Also they break down quickly, causing the mattress to lose its support in as little as a few months of use.

Parklane Mattresses only sells mattresses made of superior grade components.  For example, our memory foam products are fashioned from “cool sleep” foam, which is 8 times cooler than our competitor’s offerings.  Our latex items are similarly crafted from top-grade materials.  Either choice will give you years of comfortable, supportive rest, without the sweaty, heat generating effects of inferior sleep surfaces.  Browse our site and feel free to ask as many questions as you like about our fine products.  We’ll be glad to give you the honest, in-depth answers you need to make the right choice.

A Look at the Mattress Materials We Use

Parklane Mattresses recognizes that you’re an individual with unique tastes, opinions, and sleep styles.  That’s why, unlike so many of our competitors, we don’t lock you into having only one choice when it comes to mattress materials.  Instead we offer a variety of quality products and let you choose the best one for your needs.  Here’s a look at the options we offer:

  • Offset coil mattresses use steel springs with square heads to give a supportive sleep experience along with many years of use.  Parklane’s offset coil mattresses use an alternating left and right coil design which, when combined with their spiral shape, prevents the “rolled up” feeling that owners of inferior products often notice.  The springs in our products are crafted from 14-gauge twice-tempered steel, specially engineered to give both the right amount of support while also molding to the user’s body.  An offset coil mattress is a great, affordable choice that is very popular with our customers.
  • Pocketed coil mattress have springs that move independently of those around them.  This provides added give that makes them an outstanding choice for side sleepers, who frequently notice shoulder and hip pain when using harder sleep surfaces.  The independent design of the coils also makes these mattresses a great choice for those who find their rest disturbed by their partner’s movement during the night.  Their motion is dampened by the coil design, so it’s unnoticed by the other person.
  • Latex mattresses are made from the sap of the rubber tree, which is combined with air pockets throughout the material to give a supportive yet comfortable sleep experience.  Parklane only sells superior quality latex foam, which is free of the harsh chemicals and toxic compounds found in many of our competitor’s products.  These sleep surfaces are incredibly healthy.  Mold, mildew, and bacteria cannot live in them, and they are three times more resistant to dust mites than any other mattresses.  They also are known for holding up well even after a decade of more of nightly use.  You might find that a latex rubber mattress is the solution you’ve been looking for.
  • NASA developed memory foam in the 1960s for use by astronauts.  Now it has become one of the most popular mattress materials found in mattresses available to consumers.  While memory foam products are sold in virtually every retail and furniture store across the country, it pays to be extra careful when choosing one for your needs.  Some are made with far too many air pockets.  These will degenerate and flatten out in a couple of years or sooner, making expensive replacement necessary.  Others are created in factories that have few if any quality control standards.  You won’t have these problems if you buy a memory foam sleeping surface from Parklane.  Ours use a special “cool sleep” grade of foam.  It offers gentle, cradling support to sleepers without making them feel like they are laying in a steam sauna.  It’s also a fantastic option for those who are awakened by their partner’s motions, as it absorbs their movement instead of letting it shake the entire bed.  Memory foam is the product of choice for millions of people.  Will it be for you as well?
  • For those with concerns about the environment, we’re proud to offer our fine line of eco-friendly mattresses.  Every item used in their construction is completely recyclable.  They’re wrapped in a wide choice of materials, including organic cotton and natural bamboo.  You’ll even find selections with Aloe Vera-infused fabrics!  Topped with layers of natural latex rubber, you’ll find no better way to safeguard the planet as well as your rest.

No matter which mattress materials you choose, our chief concern is that you get the quality sleep you need to enjoy your life to the fullest.  On our site you’ll find informative articles, as well as thorough product descriptions and photos.  Look around, ask us questions, and pick the right sleep product for your individual needs.

How Sleeping on Memory Foam Can Benefit Your Health

Do you suffer from joint pain after sleeping?  Does your partner keep you awake with their tossing and turning?  Or do you suffer from mold, mildew, or dust mite allergies?  If any of these apply to you, then sleeping on memory foam might be just what you need.

What is Memory Foam?
Memory foam mattresses are made from a type of foam that is specially treated to conform to your body’s shape.  It was invented in 1966 by NASA researchers, and was initially used for such purposes as padding X-ray table pads and football helmets.  In the 1980s, NASA released the patent to the public, and sleep companies began to develop memory foam mattresses.  The first one was released in 1991.

Because it was expensive to produce, it was primarily limited to use in medical settings, such as when a patient was required to lie in the same position for extended periods of time.  The foam’s ability to adapt to the user’s body prevented the development of pressure points that would otherwise impede blood flow and cause bed sores and gangrene.

As the costs of making memory foam have dropped, it has become a common material in chair cushions, pillows, and mattresses.  One thing to be aware of, however, is that not all memory foam is equal in quality.  Discount retailers and some websites offer inferior grades that might save you a few dollars in the short term, but will quickly lose their ability to support your body shape.  Also, many of these brands are known for being hot, sticky and uncomfortable.

Parklane memory foam mattresses are crafted from a superior grade material that is up to eight times cooler than competing products.  It’s also highly resistant to germs, bacteria, mites, and other disease and allergy-causing irritants.  In addition, we use varying “weights” of memory foam that provide custom degrees of firmness, so you can match your mattress to your sleeping style and other factors. Let us help you pick the perfect product for your needs, and you can be sleeping on memory foam before you know it.

Historic Mattress Materials: How Technology Has Advanced

Since the dawn of man (and woman), human beings have needed a place to sleep. Over the years, mattress materials have evolved from little more than a pile of leaves into the plush, spring-supported, foam, and even memory foam masterpieces we have today. The following timeline shows exactly how we progressed from sleeping on leaves to memory foam.

  • People began the construction of primitive beds made of stones in the caves they inhabited during the Neolithic Era. These rocks were covered with leaves and grass, and were often wrapped in the hides of hunted animals.
  • Egyptian pharaohs were the first to sleep on raised beds after discovering the benefits of slumbering on raised platforms. Soon, most societies began to sleep this way.
  • The Greeks take sleeping on a raised platform to a whole new level and are the first to create decorative and often ornate beds and bed stands. Numerous pillows, pelts and strips of hide adorning beds become a symbol of wealth and status.
  • The basic and common mattress during these eras; however, it continues to be some form of the early mattress. That is to say, it’s a mattress stuffed with organic materials. Straw, cotton, hair and feathers are all popular mattress materials for quite some time.
  • In the 16th and 17th centuries, mattresses were mostly stuffed with pea shucks, feathers and straw, then they were stuffed into cloth cases before being covered in velvets and silks.
  • With the 18th century came the demise of the velvet and silk stuffing and the rise of the lattice work rope, which attached mattresses to their bed frames.
  • A man named Heinrich Westphal patented the steel coil spring in 1871, a device first used in the seats of chairs before making its way into mattresses. More than 50 years after this invention, the innerspring mattress gains popularity.
  • During the early 1900s, a fight for sanitary bedding laws ensued. Before these laws were in place, it was not uncommon for brand new bedding to come complete with a few vermin in tow.
  • In the late 1920s, bedding saw a huge rise in sales, before declining rapidly in the early 1930s.
  • Mattress materials consisted mostly of a combination of felt and raw cotton into the 1950s and 1960s.
  • Foam, a byproduct of war, gains popularity as a mattress material in the mid 1950s.
  • The 1970s brought a rise in the sale of water beds.

In this day and age, mattress materials differ greatly from bed to bed, and each offers its pros and cons. Whether your bed is made of latex, fiber or some form polyurethane, one thing is for certain: it will be much more comfortable than the animal hide stuffed full of leaves of bygone days.
