There is no absolute ideal mattress. Comfort is something personal and the choice of mattress is entirely up to you: this is why Altaflex mattresses are able to satisfy different sleeping needs. The degree of comfort for perfect rest is the result of a precise evaluation that equates the relationship between the person’s body weight and height.

From an ergonomic point of view, a good mattress must support the spine in its natural conformation, react under the weight of the body, but recover its shape as soon as you get up. If too rigid it creates pressure points, if too soft it does not support enough: the body in contact with the surface of the mattress must always feel well supported and supported. In general, a mattress must never be too firm or too soft but must ensure ergonomically balanced and natural support for the spine.

The fundamental aspects for choosing a mattress:

WEIGHT AND HEIGHT Weight and height are important factors that help determine the right level of rigidity of the internal structure of the mattress. For people of “small size” a more elastic mattress is recommended. Those who weigh more or are taller tend to sink more: the mattress will have to be less elastic and more rigid.

REST POSITION Everyone has their own preferences regarding the sleeping position: those who sleep on their side are recommended a more elastic mattress, to allow the shoulders and hips to exert the right pressure on it. For those who sleep on their back or stomach, a less elastic and more rigid mattress is recommended.

TEMPERATURE To sleep well it is essential to have the right resting temperature. Our mattresses are built to be able to effectively remove heat and humidity from the body, they are air conditioned to cope with the seasons of the year. In reference to these considerations, when choosing a double mattress, if the partners have considerably different sizes and weights, it is better to prefer two single mattresses, which are more suitable for different body types.

Maintenance and warranty rules

  • Prevent liquids or moisture from penetrating the mattress
  • Avoid folding or rolling the mattress
  • For better maintenance of the mattress, it is recommended to rotate it from head to toe 20 days after purchase and to turn it over after approximately 40 days. Perform the same operations every month for the life of the mattress. This facilitates the best settlement of all the materials that compose it.
  • For good conservation, the mattress must be protected, during use, by a special mattress cover and, between the mattress and the base, it is necessary to place a base cover that isolates the product from any dust that is created on the floor.
  • The base on which the mattress is placed must have dimensions equal to the latter, have beech plywood slats, to maintain adequate elasticity of support, and must be capable of supporting both the weight of the mattress and of the body of those who sleep on it. Any deformations of the mattress, if caused by an inadequate mattress base, will void the warranty.
  • Remember that the side handles are not designed to lift and transport the mattress, but to facilitate its rotation or overturning.
  • To clean the mattress, do not use vacuum cleaners, nor steam sanitizing appliances, nor foams. Their use could compromise the contact fabric and give rise to stagnation of humidity on the covering, with the possible appearance of mold stains, thus voiding the product warranty.
  • To clean the covering, if removable, carefully follow the instructions on the product label.
  • The bed linen may contain synthetic fibers which could cause the formation of pilling on the mattress covering fabric. This does not affect the functionality of the fabric and is therefore not a reason for a warranty request.
  • During use, the mattress may show slight surface deformations on the sleeping surface, due to the settling of the padding.
