INSTEAD OF AN INTRODUCTION
Our experience has shown that there is a specific population that prefers an extraordinarily solid sleeping mat. It should be noted that this is achieved by increasing the firmness of a quality mattress rather than the hardness, as often misrepresented, so as to emphasize the firmness of the support, but not to lose comfort. This effect was first achieved at the special request of our customers by double reinforcement of coconut fiber in both directions from the CORE-zone. That is why Schlafgarten’s patented handmade core has now been further strengthened.
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 at 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 one is exposed to up to 9 times less stress, which affects the durability of the core and improves its properties.
The patented Schlafgarten handmade core has excellent orthopedic and medical properties.
The Schlafgarten patented, handmade core behaves like a large air bellows, which ensures smooth air flow and allows continuous ventilation of the mattress.
Comfort and orthopedic-medical properties are at a very high level, and we have provided them by combining quality materials and ultimate production by the Schlafgarten craftsmen with decades of experience in our company. We have 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. Note that in this model, the layer of natural coconut fibers is doubled, which completes the feeling of firmness that this mattress offers.
THE COMFORT – THE BASIS OF COMFORT
Comfort layer = comfortable breathable foam
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 including HR (-high resilience) foam. This is a standard we cannot compromise on. 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 more than 70% denser than conventional foams, which contributes to the longevity of the mattress. That is why the characteristics of Schlafgarten mattresses 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 “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, has all these characteristics.
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 equally protected. Therefore, careful selection of materials is crucial to provide the following characteristics that are compatible with other mattress components and meet the principles upon which our philosophy of quality sleep is based.
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 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 with, 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 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 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 consist of two pieces, so that they can be washed in washing machines with standard volume, i.e. at home, thereby avoiding additional costs for dry cleaning.
AND A BIT MORE ABOUT THE „BREATHING MATTRESS“…
Do you know that a person 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 material and layers that allow airflow. In this way, excess water and perspiration evaporate throughout the day, preventing the formation of a micro ambient 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 – THE FACILITATED FIRMNESS OF SUPPORT WITH UNCOMPROMISING COMFORT
EXTRA DIPLOMAT, a mattress of high-firmness, is the right choice for those who prefer a firmer sleeping mat. We recommend it particularly for larger sleepers, who make a large pressure to the mat with their body.
For the EXTRA DIPLOMAT model, Schlafgarten provides a 15-year warranty on the unchanged properties of the core when used on a flat surface.
The EXTRA DIPLOMAT model is produced by Schlafgarten in many sizes, as well as in non-standard sizes and shapes.
