INSTEAD OF AN INTRODUCTION
BIOLATEX is another innovative model of ours, enriched with superior foams and high- density latex in the top comfort layer. Again, we have designed the “recipe” optimally to provide superior comfort in the upper layers, carefully maintaining the softness gradient from the outer side to the solid and stable central CORE zone.
HOW IS IT DESIGNED AND WHAT IS IT MADE OF?
THE CORE – THE BASIS OF FIRMNESS
The heart of each of our mattresses is handmade Schlafgarten core.
The handmade core, patented by Schlafgarten, incorporates 35% more springs than the machine-made core, so each spring is less loaded. Our core lasts longer and has far better orthopedic-medical properties. Why is that important?
Schlafgarten’s patented handmade core has 4 spring connection points, as opposed to 2 points for machine-made cores. This allows the pressure forces on the core to be evenly distributed not only on one spring but on 9 springs, so that each spring is subjected to up to 9 times less load, which affects the durability of the core and improves its properties.
The Schlafgarten patented handmade core has excellent orthopedic and medicinal properties.
The Schlafgarten patented handmade core behaves like a big air bellows, which ensures smooth airflow and allows for continuous ventilation of the mattress.
The comfort and orthopedic-medical properties are at a very high level and we have provided them with a combination of quality materials and ultimate production by the Schlafgarten craftsmen with decades of experience in our company. We added thermo-fixed, high- quality, very dense felt combined with coconut fibers in the so-called protective layer to hold our carefully bound core together.
THE COMFORT – THE BASIS OF COMFORT
Comfortable layer = comfortable breathable foams
In Schlafgarten we do not use ordinary everyday polyurethane foams, and you cannot find sponge in our products. Schlafgarten products contain only high-quality foams, technical novelties containing high-resilience (HR) foam. This is a standard we do not compromise on. Why is that important?
The quality of the foam material can be judged by several criteria: density, elasticity, air permeability.
We use foams with increased density, so our foams are more than 70% denser than traditional foams, which contributes to the longevity of the mattress. Therefore, the characteristics of the Schlafgarten models do not change over the years.
The flexibility of the foam, however, is proportional to the comfort offered by the mattress pad. Foams that we incorporate into Schlafgarten mattresses have a high degree of elasticity and adaptability to your usual sleeping positions.
In Schlafgarten we use 100% air-permeable foam (made in the “open-cell” technology), which ensures excellent ventilation of the mattress.
Over the past few years, in repeated tests, we have achieved an ideal level of HR foam, which, in addition to its large density, has all these properties.
However, this mattress is more than the standard we are aiming for!
A recipe that incorporates a combination of prestige foams of such kind that it is compatible with the CORE zone proved to be ideal for maximum comfort. The viscoelastic LATEX FOAM, a natural rubber product, is characterized by high density, which guarantees exceptional comfort. It is actually a milk juice that is obtained by cutting into this tropical plant in the Amazon and Asia areas. In a technological process, it goes through a series of successive reactions until it gets to be a material with honeycomb structure. This hole structure allows comfort and ventilation. You will find that, as with other models, we have carefully worked on this “recipe” by analyzing our customers’ suggestions as well as the existing offerings on the market. We are proud to say that this mattress is an experience from us as a manufacturer and our loyal customers.
Since the mattresses get deformed most at the side parts in a sitting position, we have additionally reinforced this combination of comfortable softness and solid interior with lateral reinforcements, so firmness and durability are achieved.
The COVER layer as the connection between your body and the inside of the mattress has several functions, so you and your mattress are equally protected. Therefore, careful selection of materials is of crucial importance to provide the following properties that are compatible with other mattress components and meet the principles upon which our philosophy of quality sleep is based.
The model BIOLATEX has progressed in the composition of the COVER layer, as this mattress is dressed in a cover of innovative fabrics containing TENCEL ™ Lyocell fibers of plant origin, so that this material offers the best that a blend of nature and modern technology can provide: tenderness and softness at touch, ventilation and moisture removal, bacteria inaccessibility, electrostatic neutrality, longevity in repeated maintenance cycles.
The covers of the Schlafgarten mattresses are made of high-quality materials that give them the following properties:
The capillary structure of the materials from which our covers are made allows air permeability and provides optimal microclimate conditions beneath the sleeper, supporting the concept of “breathing mattress”.
Our covers are an exception on the market, not only in terms of the type of materials, but also by the yield we produce them with, in double height, i.e. in double weaving, which ensures outstanding durability and resilience. Such extensive consumption of materials reduces the quilting level of the cover, which, otherwise, compromises its elasticity. Therefore, our covers further support the comfort offered by the high-quality COMFORT ZONE foams.
The elasticity of the materials from which our covers are manufactured also contributes to the comfort and emphasizes the effect offered by the materials in the COMFORT ZONE. The covers are extremely elastic, which is in connection with the comfort they provide the sleeper with. Without these qualities, the rigid, inelastic covering would significantly reduce the comfort effect of the comfort layer.
The covers sewn in Schlafgarten are removable, their hygiene is easy to maintain by washing in the washing machine in a 40 °C-cycle. This, along with the microstructure that dissipates moisture from the body of the sleeper, helps to improve the hygiene of the bed. In addition, the covers for double mattresses are made of two parts so they can be washed in standard volume washing machines, i.e. at home, thereby avoiding additional costs for dry cleaning.
AND A BIT MORE ABOUT THE „BREATHING MATTRESS“…
Do you know that, while sleeping, a person loses up to 200 liters of fluid per year? The fluid that is released during sleep, will not remain “trapped” on the surface only if the mattress is made of such material and layers that allow airflow. In this way, excess water and perspiration evaporate throughout the day, preventing the formation of a micro-ambience that matches the development of mites and bacteria, creating a sensation of moisture and discomfort.
Each Schlafgarten mattress offers exceptional properties in terms of airflow through the mattress, creating a dry and healthy sleeping environment.
INSTEAD OF A CONCLUSION – IMPRESSIVE COMBINATION OF NATURAL MATERIALS SUPPORTED BY MODERN TECHNOLOGY
BIOLATEX is a mattress that appeals to those who appreciate uncompromising comfort, but who prefer natural materials, as this is a product that combines the best of nature with the sophisticated use of modern technology.
For the BIOLATEX model, Schlafgarten gives a 15-year guarantee on the unchanged properties of the core when used on a flat surface.
The BIOLATEX model is manufactured by Schlafgarten in many sizes and non-standard dimensions and shapes.
