Gel Cylinders Are Better Than Gel Mix-In


Our Gel Mattresses Provide Necessary Support

Cool-To-Touch Adds Benefits To Our Best Selling Beds


Never Compressed, Never Rolled



Reason 1: Gel Cylinders Are Better Than Gel Mix-In

It’s Important To Understand The Difference Between Gel Particle Mix-In and Gel Cylinders:

Just because a company uses gel in their mattresses doesn’t mean that the gel is going to be used effectively. When gel comes into direct contact with skin it can have a cooling effect, but the problem is that the majority of the gel in most company’s mattresses gets spread throughout the memory foam layer.

Most companies are mixing gel particles directly into their memory foam. They mix a small amount of gel and this gets distributed unevenly into a memory foam core that is a few inches thick. This can create concentrations of gel in some areas and very little gel in other areas. The result is inconsistencies in the feeling and long-term durability of mattress.

Why Our Cool-To-Touch Gel Cylinders Are Better:

Our Gel Cylinders offer more consistency than Gel Mix-Ins. Our Cool-To-Touch Gel Cylinders are spread evenly across the entire sleep surface. This is a more expensive method for adding gel, but our goal is to make mattresses that are more comfortable and last longer.

Reason 2: The Density Of The Memory Foam Layers Impact How Long A Mattress Will Last

The Construction Of Most Gel Mix-In Mattresses Is Concealed:

Companies are quick to illustrate that they’re using gel in their mattresses, but they seem to leave out the two most important factors that are related to how their mattresses will hold up over time:

1) The Density of Their Memory Foam Layers

2) The Method That They’re Using To Add The Gel Into Their Memory Foam

When buying a memory foam mattress, the first thing that a person needs to understand is the density of the memory foam layers. When you look at the construction of most gel mattresses, companies tend to leave out the density and specs of the memory foam from their descriptions.

The cheapest way to add gel to a mattress is to mix gel directly into memory foam. Manufacturers typically mix in a small amount of gel into a lower-density (4lb or below) memory foam. This enables companies a cheap and easy way to market their beds as gel. These lower density memory foams and fillers tend to break down much faster.

Our Beds Feature Up To An 8lb Memory Foam:

Instead of using marketing tactics promoting gel memory foam, a product that most people don’t understand, we use superior quality Cool-To-Touch Gel Cylinders. We add this on top of memory foam layers that are 5.3lb density and 8lb Density. Our mattresses are made to provide more support and last longer.



Reason 3: Cool-To-Touch Gel Cylinders Add Benefits To Our Best Selling Beds

Most Gel Mattresses Are Soft And Will Continue To Get Softer:

Gel memory foam is typically softer than regular memory foam. The softer that the gel memory foam is, the more that it’s going to sink down underneath of a person’s body weight. The most common complaint for soft beds is that they provide less support. For heavier people this often creates a hammock effect which makes them feel like they’re down in a hole.

We Take Our Best-Selling Beds And Add Cool-To-Touch Gel Cylinders:

Our Gel Cylinder mattresses feature all of the advantages of our most popular memory foam beds that feature 8lb Memory Foam and 5.3lb Memory Foam, and adds Cool-To-Touch Gel Cylinders. These beds have proven track records of support, comfort, and durability.





Reason 4: Never Compressed, Never Compromised

Ships Flat

There are a number of ways that companies cut costs, but we refuse to compromise. Many people unsuspectingly order compressed foam mattresses. These mattresses are compacted for extended periods of time, which puts stress on the materials.

In the short term, some of these mattresses don’t fully decompress. They may remain curled up at the ends or have irregularities in the foam that become noticeable beneath a person's bodyweight.

Long term problems are more likely because of the additional stress that was put on the beds when they were compressed.
