Let us begin this in-depth, Noa Lite Mattress review (summary at the end).
Noa Lite Mattress Construction
The Noa Lite Mattress is a hybrid design, making use of a spring layer and some foam layer variations. In total, the Noa Lite has 4 internal layers. The use of foams is highly regulated, to ensure that foam products are safe for the customers that purchase them. The Noa Lite Mattress is fully certified with the necessary regulatory boards, this even goes as far as every layer having its own accreditation/ certification.
To begin, we can start at the cover, which is OEKO-TEX certified. The foam layers, of which there are 3, are all REACH certified, which is the European equivalent to the CertiPUR certification that is used in the US. The last regulation that this mattress complies with is the Volatile Organic Compound (VOC’s) emissions for indoor air quality. All of the materials in the Noa Lite are rated as low in VOC emissions.
Noa Lite Mattress Cover
The Noa Lite Mattress Cover is a hand-tufted, Tencel poly-knit fabric. The cover is also breathable, allowing for great airflow through the cover and mattress. The hand-tufted pillowtop cover also has natural hypoallergenic and antibacterial properties, thanks to the Tencel used in the fabric.
The cover cannot be removed or washed and it is suggested that customers immediately make use of a mattress protector, to better protect your mattress. The cover was designed to minimize body impressions over multiple uses and was engineered to prevent wrinkling of the cover.
If need be, you can spot clean the cover of your Noa Lite Mattress with a mild detergent. Noa also suggests that you rotate the Noa Lite Mattress head-to-toe every 3-6 months. This can be done by making use of the mattress handles included in the cover. Rotating your mattress head-to-toe will help ensure that you always receive the best from the mattress.
The lower half of the cover is also a poly-knit finish. Both the top and bottom covers contain all layers and keep them in place below you, doing the job they were designed for.
Noa Lite Mattress Layers
1. Cooling Gel Memory Foam
The first foam layer, which is REACH certified, is the cooling gel memory foam layer (this is a very common layer in gel mattresses). Memory foam has its pros and cons, one of the cons is overheating. This layer of memory foam was specifically designed to wick away heat and target the “overheating property” that memory foam is known for. In terms of the pros of memory foam, this layer was designed to provide deep pressure relief, while also contouring and cushioning your body.
2. Adaptive Transition Foam
The second internal layer is known as the “zero partner disturbance layer”. This layer was designed using adaptive transition memory foam, which is REACH certified. The layer was engineered to provide motion isolation, which keeps your partner’s movements contained to their side of the bed, without disturbing or waking you. This could make it a good fit for couples, and it is specifically useful to those with restless partners. This layer also acts as a transition or smoothing layer that creates a barrier between the cooling foam and the spring layer. The aim of a transition layer is to make sure that the steel springs are not felt by the sleeper, but rather just the effects of the springs.
3. Premium Pocket Springs
The base of the Noa Lite mattress is made using pocket springs. The springs are individually pocketed in a permeable mesh material that promotes breathability and airflow. Usually, the spaces between the springs allow for airflow but Noa has gone a step beyond by making the individual cases of the springs breathable. The springs themselves are made using thick-gauge steel, which was engineered to provide bounce and overall durability of the mattress.
4. Perimeter Edge Support
Sitting around the base spring layer, we find a 9cm high perimeter wall. The high-density foam wall encases the perimeter of the mattress and was designed to minimise sagging, provide additional durability and provide a more comforting sleep surface.
Sidewalls extend the sleeping surface of your mattress right to the edge, usually, you would need to sleep away from the edge due to sagging but with sidewalls, you can snuggle all the way to the edge. The sidewalls work with the transition layer by eliminating contact with the thick-gauge steel springs while allowing the sleeper to feel the benefits of the spring layer.
Thickness of The Noa Lite Mattress
The Noa Lite Mattress stands at 25cm tall, which is the standard height for the mattress industry, so, all your sheets and protectors should fit. We would always suggest that you double-check the specifications and dimensions on both your mattress and bedding.
Noa Lite Mattress Firmness
The Noa Lite Mattress is described as best for front sleepers and back sleepers by Noa. The firmness rating stands at 8 out of 10, meaning that the Noa Lite Mattress is a firm sleeping surface with a hint of body contouring that produces pressure relieving properties.
The Noa Lite Mattress follows a standard and clean design. The pillow-top cover is finished in white fabric, whereas the side panels are finished in grey. In terms of construction, both the side and top layers are hand-tufted poly-knit fabrics.
