Memory foam FAQ's

Memory foam mattress sale

Are Ergo Flex™ memory foam mattresses suitable for people with a bad back?

Yes, the Ergo Flex™ memory foam mattress moulds itself to the shape of your back – relieving pressure points and giving you a more comfortable nights sleep.

Can an electric blanket be used on an Ergo Flex™ memory foam mattress?

No. Ergo Flex™ memory foam mattresses are temperature sensitive, meaning that the heat from an electric blanket could deform the visco-elastic foam and damage the body-moulding performance.

Why do memory foam mattresses vary so much in price?

Memory foam mattresses vary in price due to the huge differences in quality between manufacturers. Every Ergo Flex™ memory foam mattress has been produced to exacting high standards, with optimum composition. See our Ergo Flex™ Mattress versus Market Leader page for more information on this.

Do I ever have to turn an Ergo Flex™ memory foam mattress?

Like all memory foam mattresses, Ergo Flex™ memory foam mattresses are manufactured to be laid one way, to achieve the body-moulding performance for which they are designed. Standard sprung mattresses need to be turned to prevent and delay the sagging that occurs through time.

I usually get warm at night – will an Ergo Flex™ memory foam mattress help this?

Although memory foam mattresses have the ability to retain body heat more efficiently than standard mattresses due to their composition, Ergo Flex™ memory foam mattresses have an open cell structure to allow air to circulate freely through their layers. In addition to this, Ergo Flex™ memory foam mattresses contain a unique ‘cool sleep’ air flow system for increased comfort.

Can you feel the difference between varying densities of memory foam mattresses?

Yes. The higher density of a memory foam mattress, the more support and body-moulding performance it offers. There is a massive difference in densities in the memory foam mattress market, with the lowest priced examples ranking at around 2lb mark, and the very highest priced around 5lb. Ergo Flex™ memory foam mattresses use 5.3lb (85kg/m3) density foam, offering a high quality performance at a remarkable price. See our Ergo Flex™ Mattress versus Market Leader page for more information on this.

Are Ergo Flex™ memory foam mattresses suitable for iron or pine bed frames?

Yes, Ergo Flex™ memory foam mattresses can be safely used with all types of bed, even adjustable electrics or divans.

Do memory foam mattresses encourage ‘bed-bugs’?

Bed-bugs, or dust mites, feed off discarded skin cells and can be rife in the interior of mattresses. Standard sprung mattresses have a hollow core, which provide what amounts to a breeding ground for the bugs. Ergo Flex™ memory foam mattresses have a solid core, with layered materials that offer a far-less attractive place for dust mites and other foreign matter. Most importantly, all Ergo Flex memory foam mattresses are treated with UltraFresh™. UltraFresh™ treatment ensures both the mattress and the outer cover are hypo-allergenic and anti-microbial – free of dust mites and germs, and friendly for asthmatics.

How does the Ergo Flex™ memory foam mattress compare to a sprung mattress?

Standard sprung mattresses, in essence, are made up of metal coils designed to support the weight of your body. While comfortable to an extent, these coils are simply unable to provide direct support to all pressure points, and can result in muscular and skeletal aches over time. A lack of support to a key pressure point will cause you to toss and turn in order to find a more comfortable position, disturbing your night’s sleep and distressing your body. Ergo Flex™ memory foam mattresses are designed to shape to your body, giving direct support where you need it most and providing a deep, restful sleep.

I don’t feel like I’m getting a good night’s sleep. Can Ergo Flex™ memory foam mattresses help?

Yes. The high quality Ergo Flex™ memory foam mattress is specifically designed to promote comfortable sleeping, and as the mattress shapes to the contours of your body your pressure points are relieved, whilst promoting healthy and active blood circulation to all parts of the body.

Can I wash an Ergo Flex™ memory foam mattress?

Due to its complex composition, we don’t recommend washing an Ergo Flex™ memory foam mattress. However, the deluxe removable Jacquard outer cover is fully machine-washable.

What about allergies?

The solid core and layered materials of the Ergo Flex™ memory foam mattress do not provide an ideal habitat for dust mites, unlike standard sprung mattresses. This makes the Ergo Flex™ memory foam mattress suitable for those with dust allergies. Most importantly, all Ergo Flex memory foam mattresses are treated with UltraFresh™. UltraFresh™ treatment ensures both the mattress and the outer cover are hypo-allergenic and anti-microbial – free of dust mites and germs, and friendly for asthmatics.

Can you buy Ergoflex mattresses in shops?

Currently, Ergoflex does not have any licensed stock in the retail channel. This may change in the near future, however the internet-only business model allows us to retail our products at the lowest possible price direct to our customers.

Is there a maximum weight for users of Ergoflex mattresses?

To ensure ongoing maximum performance from your Ergoflex mattress and longevity of use, we recommend as a precaution that the mattresses are suitable for persons up to 18 stone in weight (approx. 114 kg or 252 lbs) or 30 stone for combined weight (approx. 190 kg or 420 lbs). If you do exceed this weight and would like to purchase an Ergoflex mattress, please contact our sales team direct for advice on the composition that would suit you best.

How and why is the Ergoflex mattress so competitively priced?

In the UK we are currently an internet only business. This enables us to sell our mattresses directly to the customer at the lowest possible prices. At present we also only sell one type and style of memory foam mattress in the UK, again ensuring we are as commercially efficient as possible and can guarantee the lowest possible retail prices. The current depth, density, firmness rating, layering and overall composition of the Ergoflex UK mattress is however what we believe to be the optimum performing mix of materials for the mass market.
 
Things may change in the next 6 - 12 months when we start to license stock in the retail channel. This will give customers the opportunity to spec their mattresses bespokely and try the Ergoflex mattress out in the shops. However the advent of this and other consumer benefits such as interest free credit purchase plans and 60 day home trials will unfortunately be reflected in substantially higher prices to maintain commercial viability.
