Memory Foam Bed Mattresses

We want to make your experience of purchasing and using a Sloane & Sons mattress as informative and as comfortable as possible and with that in mind, we realise that not everyone understands what a memory foam mattress is, or understands the benefits that it offers, so we have taken the time to detail some information for you on this page.

For your ease, when your mattress is delivered, it will be vacuum packed and boxed. Our advice would be to take it directly to your bedroom prior to opening the box as it is much easier for you to transport in this format.

Now for some background and technical information. Memory foam mattresses, also known as memory mattresses, are topped with a layer of temperature-sensitive viscoelastic material known as memory foam. The depth of this foam differs from mattress to mattress as you will see from our Wimbledon, Twickenham and Richmond ranges. The rule of thumb is, the deeper the memory foam, the more luxurious the mattress.

Also known as a conforming mattress, Sloane & Sons memory foam mattresses strongly mould and contour to the sleepers body. Higher-density memory foam is often the most conforming because it is the most temperature sensitive, and this is the type of memory foam used by Sloane & Sons. "Temperature sensitive" means that the mattress is firmer in lower temperatures and softer in higher temperatures or when in contact with the sleepers body heat. The sleeper will sink into or "melt" into a higher density mattress because the foam under the sleepers body becomes softer but the surrounding foam stays firmer. This can result in good support and a highly conforming or contouring-to-the-body feeling.

The property of firmness (hard to soft) of memory foam is used in determining comfort. Firmness is measured by a foam's Indentation Force Deflection (IFD) rating with the rating for Sloane & Sons memory foam mattresses being firm.

Memory foam was initially very expensive in its early years of manufacturing, and following years of technological advance, memory foam mattresses have become much more affordable and indeed offer a more comfortable night's sleep, especially for those of us who suffer from back pain. You will find that this type of mattress is good at relieving pressure on painful joints as historically; memory foam was used in medical situations. For example, it was commonly utilised in cases where the patient was required to lie immobile for long periods of time. The pressure over some of their body regions decreased or stopped the blood flow to the region causing pressure problems.

Memory Foam mattresses are renowned for being able to contribute to the relief and management of pain. This is because areas of the body where pain is experienced are usually warmer than other areas of the body. Our Memory Foam mattresses will respond to the increased heat in painful areas and mould to the body in order to provide relief.

Another healthy benefit of choosing one of our Memory Foam mattresses is that they can assist with the management of allergies such as hey fever. This is because, despite the unpleasantness of the matter, dust mites love mattresses. But with Memory Foam, there is simply nowhere for them to hide and breed. All Sloane and Sons Memory Foam mattresses use Aloe Vera, a plant that has become famous for the health properties that it contains.

You are now able to benefit from these Sloane & Sons memory foam mattress properties in your own home so that you can look forward to a restful night, every night. After purchasing a mattress from Sloane and Sons it will be delivered using helpful and hygienic packaging. The mattress will be wrapped in vacuum-packed plastic and a sturdy box. The vacuum-packing ensure that your mattress is delivered in the most hygienic way, whilst the cardboard packing ensures against damage. Placing your Sloane and Sons mattress is made easy by the packaging. Simply take the box to the room in which you wish to use the mattress, remove the outer packing, lay the mattress on the bed and remove the vacuum-sealed plastic. The mattress will then expand to its full size within a short period of time.
