This memory foam mattress features iCool Technology, which is designed to keep the mattress and the sleeper cool. The reason for this is the tendency of ordinary memory foam to accumulate heat, becoming too warm for the comfort of many people. the iCool Technology is not just one material or component, but a design system involving more than one component.
In the 8-Inch Classic Memory Foam Mattress, the members of the iCool system are the cover, the memory foam, and a heat dissipation layer.
The comfort layer in the 8-Inch Classic is 2½" of Sensor-FOAM memory foam. At 2½ lbs, this is lighter than most memory foam used in mattresses. This makes this foam less heat sensitive and more pressure sensitive than heavier memory foam. This layer is also ventilated for air flow. This lets air coming in through the cover travel down through the foam. This model is also billed as extra firm by one retailer.
Between the comfort layer and the support core is a heat dissipation layer. Listed as ⅛" thick, this is a special ventilated fabric, engineered to let air flowing in from the Sensor-FOAM above to carry heat to the ventilated border and out of the mattress.
Overall support for the 8-Inch Classic Memory Foam Mattress rests on the 5½" high polyurethane foam support core. This highly resilient foam keeps the memory foam from bottoming out. It is also supposed to keep the memory foam from over-flexing and wearing out too soon.
The 8-Inch Classic Memory Foam Mattress is sold through several SensorPEDIC retailers. It is available in five sizes: Twin, Full, Queen, King and California King. The 8-Inch Classic is covered by a 20-year limited manufacturers warranty. Some retailers may have sleep trial periods.
