Natural Latex Mattresses have become increasingly popular over the last 10 years. 90% of people sleeping on 100% natural latex mattresses vote them the most comfortable bed they have ever had. This compares with 70% of people sleeping on synthetic latex or polyurethane foam and 60% of people sleeping on traditional mattresses with springs. Sleeping on a naturally breathing Latex Mattress makes good sense. You will be more comfortable because your body more easily maintains the most comfortable temperature. Synthetic materials restrict breathing and cause body stress.
Not all Latex is the same
There are two main types: Dunlop processed latex made from 100% natural latex polymers and Talalay Latex which is a synthetic blended latex. Even within these two types quality can vary a lot, depending on the quality of the polymer, the manufacture’s technical equipment and skill and the inbuilt features of the end product. We confidently recommend our Premium Quality 100 % Natural Dawn Latex Mattresses which are covered by our 100 Day Comfort guarantee and 20 year warranty.
Latex mattresses breathe well
Natural Latex Mattresses breathes due to their reticulated open cell structure. Our reticulated latex foam is made up of countless tiny cells that form a net like structure that is highly resilient and breathable. This allows maximum movement of the cells without causing structural break-down. Petroleum based, slow recovery Memory Foam is also a reticulated foam. But Latex Mattresses are unique because they also feature a plethora of microscopic holes that penetrate from the top to the bottom of the mattress. Thus air and moisture pass right through, unlike the cell structure of normal foam. You can test this by pouring water on natural latex and see it pass right through. Now pour some on synthetic foam which acts like a sponge and will absorb all the water.
How well a latex mattress breathes is also dependent on the type of bed frame and slat system. A simple elevated, open bed frame design with posture slats will provide much better air circulation to your latex mattress than a bulky frame which surrounds the mattress restricting air circulation. Most important is the type of slats. Posture slats are timber slats made with a slight upward curve. They allow about 80% more air circulation than typical flat slats. Our Posture slats also have more flexibility so they provide better contouring for different body shapes and weights. The upward curving feature of our posture slats has even been shown to correct spinal misalignment and other associated problems. Our Posture Slat Systems can also be fitted with adjustable weight sliders so they can be adjusted to individual requirements.
Improve your posture with our slat system
Not all posture slat systems are the same quality. Some posture slats on the market are mounted poorly, flatten or break, or too few are provided to give adequate support. You will suffer none of these problems with the Dawn Latex Mattress Slat System, fully covered by our 20 year warranty. Combine our quality 100% Natural Dawn Latex Mattress with our well-designed Dawn posture slat bed frame, and you will be sleeping on one of the most comfortable beds in the world today.
Latex mattress advantages
Latex Mattresses have many other advantages. Not only is the material breathable and comfortable, latex is also one of the most durable bedding materials. You may pay more for your natural latex mattress up front, but you can count on it lasting you up to 3 times longer than a good conventional spring mattress. Our Latex mattresses are also naturally anti- bacterial and repel dust mites, so no added chemicals need to be added. Dawn Latex Mattresses are 100% chemical free and also have removable covers which can easily be washed at home.
Dawn Latex Mattresses provide mattresses of various densities for different body types, soft, medium and firm. In most cases, the heavier the person the firmer the latex recommended. Our Dawn Natural Latex Beds free online consultation will give you the best latex density to suit your body type and individual needs. Another special feature of the Dawn latex mattresses is multi- density layering which allows you to adjust the overall density of the mattress at home and at anytime.
