This Ultra-Cool Cover is designed using phase change material to keep your body cool when you sleep. Simply zip on the Ultra-Cool Cover in place of your standard cover for quick and easy use.
A high quality 450GSM washable quilted cover, this fabric is designed to work with the body's natural thermal capabilities. It helps you to feel warm when you are cold and cool when you feel hot. A washable, durable and replaceable base cover to keep your mattress clean. Just unzip at the side and its ready to be removed for cleaning.
Our special latex-foam hybrid alternative, designed to react and contour to your body.
Idle Cooling Buoyancy Foam is made without visco elastic chemicals so Idle stays cooler than memory foam with better pressure relief. Perforated holes in the transition layer foram that help the mattress breath and provide extra responsiveness.
Specially designed using proprietary Helix Dynamic Foam to react to your body shape and aid recovery. Density of the top and middle layers optimized to give you extra support based on your body type. High-Grade Polyfoam
Rapid Response Technology. Idle foam mattresses benefit from advanced thermal neutrality, guaranteeing your body a comfortable contoured support which rapidly returns to form when you move, meaning no more sink holes across your mattress. Little to no motion transfer. Three inches of our custom blended foam with gel infusion, reacts faster than memory foam and has better support for more pressure relief, all while sleeping cooler. At 7 inches, our bases provide superior stability for every layer. Its one reason our Idle foam gel mattresses have at least 1" extra height compared to other brands. At 2.4lb of foam core density, this is at least 30% more than the market average, making it extra durable.
