Support can be measured through a metric known as Support Factor and only materials with high support factors can be labeled high resilience foams. Not only is Organic latex a high resilience foam, it has the highest Support Factor of all bedding materials, period. Highly supportive materials reduce pressure points and increase blood flow to prevent tossing and turning while promoting a deeper, healthier sleep.
Traditional mattresses need to be firm to provide support. Material with a high support factor can be softer while increasing support. The unparalleled support properties make mattress buying easier than ever. Simply pick the mattress that’s most comfortable to you and the latex will take care of the rest.
The elastic, low hysteresis properties of Latex allow your body to move with less resistance during rest. This allows you to conserve energy throughout the night by remaining the deep restorative REM sleep needed for a truly restful sleep.
Latex mattresses can be used for 25 years or more with minimal loss in firmness. This is confirmed through roller dowel testing which simulates decades of use.
The pinhole construction of Latex foam rubber allows air to circulate through the mattress to create a ventilated sleeping surface.
Mold, Mildew and Dust Mite Resistant
Mildews, molds and dust mites require moisture to live and grow and the natural characteristics of latex prevent moisture absorption.
The surface characteristics of Natural Dunlop Latex inhibits the growth of microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi.
