REM-Fit Bamboo Charcoal Memory Foam Mattress Construction
As the name suggests, this mattress makes use of bamboo, charcoal and memory foam. You might be wondering why charcoal, or even why they would use bamboo?
We can start with the use of memory foam in the REM-Fit Bamboo Charcoal Memory Foam Mattress. Memory foam mattresses, while ideal for comfort, can also have their downsides, this includes manufacturing memory foam. The use of certain chemicals and substances are prohibited, to protect customers and the environment. A voluntary testing programme used to certify compliance with restrictions concerning substances is CertiPur. REM-Fit are fully CertiPur certified, meaning that their products are safe for use, according to the CertiPur regulations.
The REM-Fit Bamboo Charcoal Memory Foam Mattress makes use of a 2 layer design. The charcoal, bamboo and other key features are designed into the upper memory foam layer. Lower down, under the layers section, we will cover what each layer is and what it brings to the table, or to the bed in this case.
REM-Fit Bamboo Charcoal Memory Foam Mattress Cover
The REM-Fit Bamboo Charcoal Memory Foam Mattress comes with a Re-Ax, thermos-regulating, hypoallergenic knitted cover.
The knitted cover is removable and can be washed, which is a feature that some boxed mattresses don't have. With a washable cover, the sleeping surface of your mattress can remain clean and pristine, meaning you won’t have to worry about dirt build-up, spills or other messes. This is especially useful when cleaning your entire mattress.
The Re-Ax cover was designed to be a fully breathable fabric structure, that is also silky soft to the touch. The cover, and the entire mattress, in fact, is hypoallergenic. This means that it should be suitable for those who are prone to allergies.
REM-Fit Bamboo Charcoal Memory Foam Mattress Layers
In this section, we will cover the business of this mattress and the properties from which it gets its name. The REM-Fit Bamboo Charcoal Memory Foam Mattress is made up of 2 internal foam layers, each with its own design properties.
1. Bamboo & Charcoal Foam Comfort layer
The first layer, which sits just below the cover, is the Bamboo & Charcoal memory foam layer. One of the drawbacks of memory foam is that it retains heat. This memory foam layer was designed to have body moulding and temperature regulating properties. By infusing bamboo and charcoal, this is designed to disperse it. You could see this as somewhat an alternative to gel mattresses.
The use of bamboo was specifically included to continue the hypoallergenic property of the mattress. Although this design uses natural materials, it is still generally infused with polyurethane which is a synthetic blend and has the tendency to off-gas.
REM-Fit is dedicated to making people sleep better and through their research, they have identified overheating during the night✓ as a major disruption to a full nights rest, hence a cooling memory foam layer was needed. The Bamboo and Charcoal used also create natural properties in the mattress, these are antibacterial and antifungal, which better promote a clean and restful sleep. Keep in mind that although these are natural materials, they are blended with synthetic foams.
2. High-Density Base Zoned Support
Sitting below the top comfort layer, we find a zoned base layer. This layer was designed to add an extra layer of support that relieves pressure from building up around the bonier areas of your body. Zoned layers are foams response to spring mattresses, and are designed to work as springs would, to support and relieve pressure. The specific zones of your body that this layer was designed to target are your shoulders, hips and knees, which is especially important for side sleepers.
This base of the mattress is a high-density foam base that acts as the foundation of the mattress. The high-density base makes the mattress ideal for any bed base, whether that be divans, slatted bases, platform bases or adjustable bases.
How Thick Is the REM-Fit Bamboo Charcoal Mattress?
The REM-Fit Bamboo Charcoal Memory Foam Mattress stands at a total depth of 20cm, which means that your sheets should fit. Keep in mind that this is not a thick mattress, so it may not be ideal for those looking for a mattress as heavier individuals.
In terms of performance, the REM-Fit Bamboo Charcoal Memory Foam Mattress was designed to hold a max of 20 stone/ 128 kg per sleeper, with a maximum of 2 sleepers.
The firmness of a mattress determines how it feels when laying on it and whether it will be suitable for your sleeping style. The REM-Fit Bamboo Charcoal Memory Foam Mattress designed to be suited for all sleepers and sleep types and is rated as a medium-firm feel mattress.
REM-Fit Bamboo Charcoal Mattress Design
REM-Fit products follow the company design and usually feature a coloured stripe. For the REM-Fit Bamboo Charcoal Memory Foam Mattress, the stripe is the colour of charcoal, to indicate what the mattress has inside.
The design remains the same, with the stripes joining in a corner and surrounding the base of the mattress. This design is eye-catching and since the cover is removable, there is no need for a sheet but is still recommended.
