INSTEAD OF AN INTRODUCTION
The DIPLOMAT mattress, the successor to the DIPLOMAT VINTAGE model, was created as a technological as well as practical modernization requirement. Unlike its predecessor, it is characterized by asymmetry in the structure of the central core zone, so it has differently organized layers. Therefore, the rule “flip the mattress over occasionally” does not apply to this mattress.
* Namely, in a model where all segments are the same with respect to the core zone, it is desirable from time to time to flip the mattress over for even wear (from the experience of our users, who have never done so and have slept on our pads for more than a decade, we conclude that the solidity of producing such models is at the highest level).
The core is identical on every model with spring system – Schlafgarten’s patented handmade spring core.
HOW IS IT DESIGNED AND WHAT IS IT MADE OF?
THE CORE – THE BASIS OF FIRMNESS
The heart of each of our mattresses is the 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.
Schlafgarten’s patented handmade core contains outstanding orthopedic-medical properties.
The Schlafgarten patented, handmade core behaves like a large air bellows, ensuring smooth air circulation and allowing continuous ventilation of the mattress.
Thanks to the patent designed this way, it is with great self-confidence that we grant you a 15-year guarantee on the immutability of the core properties.
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 heat-set, high-quality, very dense felt combined with coconut fibers in the so-called protective layer to hold together our carefully bound core.
COMFORT – THE BASIS OF COMFORT
Comfort layer = comfortable breathable foam
We do not use ordinary everyday polyurethane foams in Schlafgarten, so you cannot find sponge in our products. Schlafgarten products contain only high-quality foams, technical novelties containing high-resilience (HR-high resilience) foam. This is a standard in which we do not compromise. Why is that important? The quality of the foam material can be judged by several criteria: density, elasticity, air permeability.
We use foam with increased density, so our foams are over 70% denser than conventional foams, which contributes to the longevity of the mattress. That is why Schlafgarten mattresses do not change their characteristics 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 „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 high density, contains all these characteristics.
Asymmetry of the COMFORT ZONE, so that the mattress does not need to be occasionally flipped over, is exactly what is expected of a mattress – SUPPORT IN THE LOWER AND COMFORT IN THE UPPER PARTS. This was achieved by placing a thinner layer of denser HR foam in the layer under the Schlafgarten patented, handmade core, and enriching the top layer with an even more comfortable 5 cm standard HR foam layer, providing adequate ventilation.
THE COVER – PROTECTION AND HYGIENE
The COVER layer, as the link between your body and the inside of the mattress, has several functions, so you and your mattress are protected equally. Therefore, a careful selection of materials is crucial 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 cover of the Schlafgarten mattresses is made of high-quality materials which give them the following characteristics:
The capillary structure of the materials from which our covers are made allows air permeability and provides optimal microclimate conditions under the sleeper, supporting the concept of the “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, in double height, i.e. in double weaving, which ensures exceptional durability and resilience. Such extensive consumption of the material reduces the quilting level of the cover, which otherwise compromises its elasticity. Therefore, our covers further support the comfort afforded by the high-quality COMFORT ZONE foams.
The elasticity of the materials used to make our covers adds to the comfort and accentuates the impact of 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 properties, 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 that they can be washed in standard volume washing machines, at home, thereby avoiding additional costs for dry cleaning.
AND A BIT MORE ABOUT THE “BREATHING MATTRESS”…
Do you know that one loses up to 200 liters of fluid per year while sleeping? The fluid released during sleep will not remain “trapped” on the surface only if the mattress is made of such materials 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 has exceptional mattress airflow characteristics, creating a dry and healthy sleeping environment.
INSTEAD OF A CONCLUSION – ONE STEP AHEAD OF TRADITION
The DIPLOMAT mattress is the right choice for those who have already tried DIPLOMAT VINTAGE, but require a more modern design and greater comfort. The changes we have introduced imply that the regular maintenance of removable covers is the only activity required to care for your mattress.
For the DIPLOMAT model, Schlafgarten provides a 15-year guarantee on the unchanged properties of the core when used on a flat surface.
The DIPLOMAT model is produced by Schlafgarten in many sizes, as well as in non-standard sizes and shapes.
