added the Gel Latex
mattress collection to its Optimum
specialty sleep products brand in July 2013.
Like all Optimum
mattresses, the primary support for the Gel Latex
mattresses is the OptiCore
high density latex support block. The OptiCore
is 7" thick in each of the Gel Latex
models. It yields a support equivalent to that of an orthopedic innerspring unit.
At the top of an Optimum Gel Latex
mattress is Sealy
gel latex foam which is fused with Outlast
was developed for NASA to control temperatures in space suits, keeping them within a desired range. Outlast
fibers contain PCM
s (Phase Change Materials
), which change their physical state in response to changes in temperature. When the temperature exceeds the upper limit of the range, the PCM
s liquify by absorbing heat. When the temperature falls below the lower limit of the range, they solidify, releasing heat. The kinds and proportions of PCM
s in the Outlast
used with OptiCool
gel latex foam is selected to keep the temperature with a range suitable for comfortable sleeping.
gel latex foam itself regulates temperature. The gel in OptiCool
absorbs heat and conducts it away from the sleeping surface. This way the gel and the Outlast
work together to keep the Sealy Optimum Gel Latex
mattress cool enough to be comfortable.
Underneath the OptiCool
layer is a layer of OptiSense® Premium Latex
. This is 1" to 4" thick, depending on the model. OptiSense
® has a conformity rivaling memory foam. But Latex is more resilient, responding instantly to any lessening of pressure. This keeps the sleeper from feeling the "sinking sensation" of being trapped in the mattress. A benefit of this resilient conformity is the minimization of motion transfer. That way, when one person moves, the other is not disturbed.
The choices of foundation for mattresses in the Optimum Gel Latex Collection
are the Optimum Foundation
, especially designed for use with specialty sleep mattresses, and the Optimum Reflexion Powerbase
, an adjustable bed. The Reflexion
has a Dual Wave
massage, a wireless handset, and a "night light" under the bed.
The recommended cleaning method for an Optimum Gel Latex
mattress is vacuuming. To remove a stain, use mild soap with cold water, applying lightly without soaking (no dry cleaning fluid).
mattresses, like all Optimum
mattresses, has a 25-year limited warranty.
