is the lower of the two adjustable airbed
models in the Ultimate Series
of the 2015 Collection
. It is similar to the Elite S
in the Elite Comfort Series
of the 2013 Comfortaire Collection
. Like the other Ultimate Series
model, the U15 Harmony
, this is a split-top mattress: one mattress with two head sections. On an adjustable base
these can be raised and lowered separately while a couple still shares the same mattress
. Though different in other features, this mattress is like the Sleep Number
in having the split top.
The U11 Solstice
has dual air support. Each side is controlled separately for individualized comfort, as is the case with all Comfortaire
mattresses in two-sleeper sizes. The Solstice
uses the Attune Design
air support system with urethane film air chambers atop a high density foam
support core. This was developed by Comfortaire
from its Original Air Technology
The urethane air chambers are shorter (3½") and thinner-walled than the previous 6" high cotton
-latex version. They are also higher up in the mattress, closer to the sleepers, and extend the full width and length for Edge
Air Support with full adjustability.
The 2" base foam support core is made of highly resilient synthetic latex
. The purpose of this layer is to support the air chambers while serving as a shock absorber. This is also to help the air support unit to conform to the sleeper's body for pressure relief and proper spinal posturing. Since the support core is only 2" high, it does not require perimeter encasement.
At the top of the Comfortaire U11 Solstice
is the cover
made of bamboo
fibers, the same as used in G13 Horizons
and G12 Sonata
in the Genesis Series
. Bamboo fibers, with their mesh-like structure, wick up moisture and carry it away from the sleeping surface. This moisture evaporates to create a cooling effect (this is the principle used in swamp coolers).
The only thing between the Attune Design
air chambers and the cover is the 3¼" Evellafoam
comfort layer. Evellafoam
is a fusion of memory foam
and synthetic latex, combining benefits of both materials. It is scented with green tea extract for odor protection and freshness. Green tea extract is an antioxidant, inhibits microbes, and is hypoallergenic.
The preferred foundation
for the U11 Soltice
split-top air bed is an adjustable bed
, especially one with only the head adjustable, or a split-sized unit with synchronized foot sections. Comfortaire
sells the Silhouette
by Leggett & Platt
, which is available in split sizes.
The Comfortaire U11 Solstice
comes with a 25-year (4/25) limited warranty. The first four years are not prorated, and the remaining years are. It is anticipated that retailers will be carrying this model by the end of 2014.
