Comfort
The eco-friendly foam is made from natural materials that help you stay cool all night. This innovative layer wicks moisture away and prevents you from getting too hot. The high-quality cover also supports perfect air circulation. Breathable eco-friendly foam is kind to the environment and your sleep. It wicks away moisture and stops you from overheating. It is also wonderfully bouncy yet features zero partner disturbance technology so you won't feel your sleep partner's movements.
Appreciating that everyone is different, Sleeping Duck allows you to choose from a medium or firm mattress (or half-half on Queen and King sizes). Over the course of your 100 night trial you can change the firmness of your mattress depending on the way you are sleeping. These firmnesses can be adjusted with just the pull of a zip. The ComponentAdapt customisation system empowers you to take full control of the comfort of your mattress. This is achieved via interchangeable Precision Pads that you can swap out for both you and your partner. After sleeping on your mattress, you can contact the SDHQ who can help you to customise and adapt the mattress with up to 256 combinations possible.
Support
Advanced zoning keeps you supported in the areas you need it the most. The three-layered mattress core adapts to any body shape to align your spine thus making it ideal for people who struggle with back pain. These high-quality foams work together perfectly to distribute all pressure evenly across the entire mattress. The 7 zone high resilience foam in the middle or transitional layer distributes pressure perfectly across the mattress and effortlessly adapts specifically to different parts of your body. Guaranteed to keep you comfortable whichever way you sleep. The supportive yet durable point-elastic base foam layer provides essential counter-pressure to comfortably support your lower back and make moving on the mattress a breeze without disturbing your partner.
The Sleeping Duck Mach II has a multi-zone support structure to make sure every part of your body is wonderfully supported and comfortable. Pocket Springs are far more resilient and provide better support over a longer period of time. They're specifically designed to ease the human body to relaxation and relieve pressure points by varying the distribution of weight throughout the entire surface. The mattress has superior edge support thanks to the reinforced spring perimeter through the use of 2.3mm springs on the entire border. This allows you to sleep edge-to-edge, making your Queen size feel like a King, and allowing you to sit or sleep on the edge without the rolling or sliding off feeling. Independently pocketed springs create zero disturbance between you and your sleeping partner.
