Deluxe Foam Mattresses
At Fox Mattress, we know the upholstery or cushioning used in a mattress is the most important part.
Although there are many different types of fibers available, wool, down, etc.; wool is by far the most common. If you ever had a mattress that created an impression where you sleep it is most probably the cushioning that has created it.
At our local Holly Hill factory we have a great partnership with all the largest and most reputable FOAM pourers in the U.S. With these connections we are able to buy the most up-to-date cutting edge foams available. We choose not to go overseas trying to save a nickel, we would rather KNOW and control what is in our mattresses. One thing we hear repeatedly by our supplier sales rep’s is that NOBODY in the mattress industry uses the quality that Fox Matttress does. We are very proud of that reputation and that is the main reason we prefer to build our own mattresses.
Try not to get confused with all the big and exciting “buzz” words in the mattress industry. Ex. precompressed, high density, HR and all the other specific company words: Optisense(TM), Tempur(TM), Cool Action(TM). The quality of foam is determined by science.. NOT words.
Here are Just Some of the Foam Mattresses Available
Gel (Fox is now offering copper gel, graphite gel, & more)
Designed to cool the warm sleeping aspects of some foams, can come as infused or beaded. There are health and cooling benefits of using copper and graphite infused foams. Ask your sales person about our specialty designs!
The original NASA type foam, designed to mold or cradle the body when sleeping.
Latex (Natural & Synthetic)
The rubber foam family. This material in its natural form is poured from rubber tree and poured into latex mold. One of the healthiest/natural materials to construct mattress with. At Fox Mattress, our latex comes from only the most reputable latex companies with options of both Dunlop and Talalay available. There is also synthetic (man-made) latex; but we do not carry it in our products.
Preserve Urethane (no VOC, CFC’s etc.)
An upgraded material from the standard urethane foam; which is the most common in the mattress business.
Big open cell structure used to create increased amount of air flow which in turn h mattresses.
Important to note:
The quality of foam is judged by the density (weight per cubic foot) not the firmness (how soft or firm). As an example, a 1.8lb foam can be measured by taking a cube 12″x12″x12″ and weighing it. Thus, the lighter foams have more air and heavier foams have more ingredients. The issue with light weight foams is that as you compress the air out after nightly use, you start to create the dreaded sag. We strongly recommend using the heaviest or most dense foams possible. The higher density cushioning used, the less change observed over a period of time.
Normal mattress cushioning in the industry ranges between .8lbs per cubic foot (lower end) to 1.8lbs per cubic foot (higher end). At Fox Mattress we use from 1.8lb (low end) to 5.5lb (high end). So as you can tell we know foam is the key to comfort, durability, support, and slowing down the issue of body impressions.
The firmness of a mattress has nothing to do with quality. The density of the cushioning in a mattress is what will provide longevity and comfort for years to come.
