Features of folding mattresses
- They fold. The most popular folding mattresses fold twice or thrice making them easy to store or transport.
- They are portable. Because they are made of memory foam, these mattresses are lightweight and pretty portable.
- Are made of foam. While some are made of polyfoam, you’ll come across others that are made of memory foam. Ploy foam is the same material commonly used to make a typical home mattress. Memory foam, on the other hand, molds in response to the heat produced by the human body. It comes with the advantage of easing pressure points and is very flexible.
- Are made with a cover for the foam. Covers for folding mattresses have varying characteristics. Most have a soft feel. Some are breathable and others waterproof. Again, most are removable making them easy to wash or replace. Some are treated with fire retardant or antimicrobial protection. It is important to get a cover with a non-slip bottom to help keep your mattress in place wherever you intend to use it.
Common materials for covers include polyester, bamboo, and rayon, sometimes with a blend of Jacquard fabric.
- The dimensions. The thickness of most folding mattresses usually ranges between 3 and 6 inches. While most of them measure 4 inches in thickness, the 6 inches ones tend to be more comfortable. On the con, however, the thicker ones are bulky and so not exactly portable. The length and width of the mattress should also be considered and will be determined by the size of the user. There are different mattress sizes from extra small to king size.
- The firmness level. Most folding mattresses will be firm or medium-firm. Ideally, the thicker the mattress, the softer it will be. For instance, a 6 inches thick mattress should feel softer than a 4-inch thick mattress.
