No-Flip Mattresses are No Bargain for Customers

Great, right? Not so fast. One of the reasons flipping traditional mattresses was originally suggested by manufacturers is that it helped balance the wear and tear on a bed by distributing pressure evenly across all surfaces. It may have ... (Read More)

Stay Out of a Summertime Bind and Get These Projects Done

2 Major Benefits to Using Foam Pads When Camping
When it comes to camping, the most difficult part of a trip isn’t hiking, carrying in gear, or even starting a fire. It’s getting a good night’s sleep. Testing the warmth and coziness of a sleeping bag on a warm, carpeted living room floor is a poor predictor of its performance once rolled out on the floor of a tent, millimeters of plastic away from rocks, sticks, and dirt. Unfortunately, this is often overlooked by first-time campers, and people ... (Read More)

A foam material’s density is one of the best ways to do this, but knowing a single product’s density while not knowing how that value measures up to other foam types is like being given a boat in the middle of the desert. Sure, now you have a boat, but how are you supposed to use it? ... (Read More)
A Custom Foam Mattress Will Offer You the Best Night’s Sleep

Foam Factory Memory Foam Measures Up to Competition
