  • Patent number: 10542825
    Abstract: A multi-zone mattress comprising a top layer, an intermediate layer and a bottom layer disposed in substantially parallel relationship relative to each other including a first plurality of zones each having a first firmness profile to support a person thereon separated by a second plurality of zones each having a second firmness profile less than the firmness of the first firmness profile of the first plurality of zones, the first plurality of zones and the second plurality of zones each cooperatively formed by corresponding sections of the top layer, intermediate layer and bottom layer disposed in substantially parallel alignment relative to each other.

  • Patent number: 7992242
    Abstract: A zoned mattress including at least a head firmness zone, a leg firmness zone between the head and leg firmness zones overlaid by a knit top fabric knit from threads of at least two different colors to define three different firmness indicating areas corresponding to the three firmness zones of the mattress. At least one of the firmness indicating areas is defined by threads differing in color as compared to the color of the threads defining at least one of the two remaining firmness indicating areas.

  • Patent number: 7870626
    Abstract: A mattress includes a chamber defined by upper and lower panels and a peripheral border all constructed from synthetic polymeric/copolymeric plastic material and housing therein a spring unit. The spring unit includes a plurality of springs having upper ends connected to a peripheral border rod. The spring unit is devoid of a peripheral border rod at lower ends of the springs. Upper edges of the spring unit can be deformably gripped by the upper panel, the peripheral border and/or both to prevent “swimming pool” effect.

  • Patent number: 7353550
    Abstract: The invention is directed to a mattress retainer system for adjustable beds which includes a mattress-retention bracket housed within a pocket of a mattress accessible in an upward direction through an opening along a bottom edge of the mattress. The pocket is formed by attaching a separate piece of material along a bottom edge of the mattress at one or both of opposite head/foot ends thereof and permitting an overlying downwardly projecting portion of a peripheral covering of the mattress to remain free thereby defining the opening into the pocket.

  • Patent number: 6701551
    Abstract: A slat box spring/slat bed includes a polygonal frame spanned by a plurality of spaced substantially parallel concavo-convex slats of flexible material atop uppermost convex surfaces of which rests a piece of synthetic latex foam material. A soft cover is upholstered to the entirety of the latter except for an open bottom to impart a coil spring appearance to the slat box spring. The piece of synthetic latex foam material has a plurality of projections or corrugations which project into selected spaces between the plurality of slits to immobilize the latex foam material relative thereto.

  • Patent number: 6223371
    Abstract: A method of manufacturing mattresses is achieved by providing first and second layers of latex material having different indentation load deflection values. Each layer is then cut lengthwise along a longitudinal plane, preferably a medial plane to define first and second layer portions of the first and second layers each of an identical height. The layer portions are then cross united and adhesively bonded together thereby producing a mattress possessing a composite load deflection value dictated by the different indentation load deflection values of the starting layers. Preferably matching recesses are formed in the first and second layer portions of both layers. Medial recesses receive postural inserts of relatively high ILD values, whereas transverse recesses at headed foot sections are aligned to define voids at the foot and head sections of the mattress to provide head and foot relief.

  • Patent number: 6212720
    Abstract: A mattress includes at least in part a center convoluted foamed latex layer having opposite ends and opposite sides, a substantially flat lower surface and an opposite convoluted upper surface with the convoluted surface including a plurality of upwardly directed peaks and upwardly opening valleys. An upper layer of polymeric/copolymeric material spans the convoluted upper surface with a lower surface of the upper layer being substantially contiguous to the peaks and substantially closing the valleys. A frame of polymeric/copolymeric material substantially peripherally surrounds the convoluted layer and has an upper surface in underlying bonded relationship to the upper layer upper surface.
