is a Tennessee based manufacturer of memory foam mattresses which, except for a handful of stores, are available only online. BedInABox
made its name by compressing memory foam mattresses enough to be put into a box and shipped by FedEx and UPS.
has a 3" layer of CoolRest Gel
™, a key feature of all BedInABox
™ is a gel-infused visco-elastic memory foam. It and the other foams used by Bed-In-A-Box
use less fossil hydrocarbons (petroleum) than the foams of half a decade ago. Depending on the foam, they contain 5% to 20% BiOH
polyols produced by Cargill. These polyols are made from soy oils. The actual foams are formulated and made in North Carolina by BASF.
The role of memory foam is to conform to the contours of the sleeper's body. It relieves pressure points, which can become painful. This material was originally developed to cushion astronauts on lift-off. It was later adapted for use by consumers, first in seats and pillows, then in mattresses. Memory foam also dampens the transfer of motion. This keeps one sleeper's movements from disturbing another sleeper.
Memory foam tends to accumulate heat, becoming too hot to sleep comfortably, so many manufacturers, including BedInABox
, add gel to memory foam to conduct heat away from the sleeping surface and dissipate it. Additionally, modern methods of making memory foam generate a cell structure which promotes air flow, further cooling the mattress. Also, gel enables manufacturers to refine the support properties of memory foam to thier specifications.
Underlying the CoolRest Gel
™ layer in the Serenity GEL
mattress is the 8" support core of High Resiliency Support Foam
. It is there to provide even support to the memory foam layer. This fosters correct spinal alignment while the memory foam cradles the sleeper. It also prolongs the life of the memory foam, keeping it from sagging.
Above the CoolRest Gel
™ is the Outlast
®, which is 2" deep. Outlast
® was first developed for space suits to control temperatures for the astronauts. This space-age fabric uses phase change materials (PCMs), trade-named Thermocules
™, to keep temperatures within a desired range. When it is too hot PCMs liquify, absorbing the heat. When it is too cool they solidify, releasing heat. The selection of PCMs for a specified use determine not only the desired range, but also the extremes within which they will work.
To support the Serenity GEL
sells a BIAB
canvas-covered wood-slat foundation and metal bed frames. It also sells several models of platform beds as well as Leggett & Platt
According to BedInABox
, all their mattresses are extensively tested in the lab as to how they perform, how durable they are, and what they contain. They also have a 120 Day Zero-Risk Sleep Guarantee and carry a 20-Year Warranty.
