INSTEAD OF AN INTRODUCTION
BED EQUIPMENT OF COMPLETELY NATURAL MATERIALS
Along with the growing concern for the preservation of nature, we have respected the need for the application of biodegradable raw materials into the sleeping environment. That’s why we have designed a mattress made entirely of vegetable raw materials that can be recycled during the production process and even during the disposal process, which provides the customer with a high level of environmental awareness.
These natural materials are also not randomly selected, actually, each of them has very useful properties that, in combination with others, complement each other and are further emphasized. The rule is that harder, stronger materials support the mattress, the softer ones give comfort and almost all of them have excellent thermal insulation and breathable properties.
THE CORE WITHOUT CORE, OR WHAT INSTEAD OF THE CORE?
Maintaining good support without the use of a standard, fixed CORE zone while respecting environmental requirements, was an intriguing task for our production team. Since we know that, despite all the advantages that natural materials have, they cannot withstand the load of the sleeper in the long run, we have found a solution that adequately supports the spine. We have designed the so-called “double-sandwich” or double core made of latex-coconut fiber in combination with marine algae, which is used in a comfortable layer in two levels.
Namely, COCONUT FIBER contains closed cells which are filled with air, whereby the fibers provide good isolation, but are also resistant to decay in a humid environment. It is permeable to air, and keeps the body temperature of the sleeper evenly.
Sea algae are bound to a layer of coconut fibers, act aroma therapeutic and, due to the high iodine content, form a microenvironment with general health benefits, especially in the pediatric population.
THE COMFORT ZONE: NATURAL FOAM WITH RICH ELASTICITY
In this “double sandwich”, the comfort layer is designed to cover two layers of coconut support from four sides, and we used the best of natural elastomers – a rubber extract known as LATEX. It is actually a milk juice which is obtained by cutting into this tropical plant from the Amazon and Asia areas. In a technological process it goes through a series of consecutive reactions and you get a material with honeycomb hole structure. These holes allow comfort and ventilation, but are arranged differently by observation of the vertical axis of the mattress, so that the entire mattress is divided into 7 different comfort areas, ranging from the head to the end part.
Latex is a material that is not hospitable to mites and has low allergenic potential as an air-permeable material.
Nevertheless, we must not deny that the general experience of support and comfort largely depends on the slatted base on which such a mattress must be placed. This applies to all mattresses without wire core.
THE COVER – PROTECTION AND HYGIENE
The covers made in Schlafgarten are removable, so their hygiene is easy to maintain by washing in the washing machine at 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 split in two, so that 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 when 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 and creates 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: RICH ECOLOGICAL SUPPORT FROM NATURAL MATERIALS
COCOLATEX is a logical choice for customers with high ecological awareness and a high affinity to natural, biodegradable materials, and who can also find compatible pillows in our assortment, which are produced according to the criterion of the preservation of the natural environment. It should be noted that this mattress is optimally combined with slatted frames. This is a prerequisite for the full expression of the ergo metric properties.
For the COCOLATEX model, Schlafgarten gives a 5-year guarantee when used with a flexible elastic frame.
The model COCOLATEX Schlafgarten is available in standard sizes:
80×190/200 90×190/200 100×190/200 120×190/200 140×190/200 160×190/200 180×190/200.
According to your wishes, we can also produce other dimensions and shapes.
