Vinyl Products Manufacturing (VP), also using the marketing name of Alternative Sleep Systems, makes airbeds and air mattresses. Their Adjustable Air Beds are designed and made for use on regular beds, while the air mattresses are the kind we set up for guests or for camping.
VP Adjustable Air Beds share the same air support system, which is sold separately as a replacement through some retailers, such as The Airbed Doctor, which also lists the tops (including sides) separately.
The Adjustable Air Bed Collection consists of models known as Feather Edge. What this means is not exactly spelled out, perhaps having something to do with the seams, but all four models are named after birds: Air-Egret, Air-Phoenix, Air-Swan and Air-Dove. The same tops are used for Vinyl Products' Feather Edge Flotation softside waterbed collection. For both types, the support system, water or air, is 8" high in Air-Egret, Air-Phoenix, and Air-Swan, and 7" in Air-Dove.
"Adjustable" in the name of the collection refers to the ability of the users to adjust the air pressure while they are lying on the bed. This is done by a hand-held remote control with an "extra long control cord." Air pumps are built in, which helps keep them quiet. Two-person beds have one for each side.
Air-Egret, Air-Phoenix and Air-Swan each come in two heights, Standard and BoxTop. The Box Top versions add a duvet style pillow top with extra cushioning material. The duvet is 2" high. In Egret, the topper is filled with virgin wool and Hollofill by DuPont. In the others it is foam.
The mattress comfort layers consist of foam wrapped in a vapor barrier (just in case the owner converts it to a waterbed). The heights of Vinyl Products' Feather Edge Air Beds are 12" and 14" for Egret, 11½" and 10" for Phoenix, 13" and 11" for Swan, and 8" for Dove.
Feather Edge Adjustable Air Beds by Vinyl Products are available through several retailers. The staged warranty is for 20 years.
