Zedbed R2 Series
Loading image.......please wait
The second series of mattresses listed by Candian bedding manufacturer Zedbed
is the R2 Series
. The signature feature of this mattress collection is the use of Zedbed
foam in the top layer. Zedbed
"an improved version of our PURE memory foam." (The PURE memory form is the key feature of Zedbed
's PURE Series
is a "quick response" material, recovering its original shape in 5 to 15 seconds (compared to 15-30 sec. for PURE). Like PURE, Zedbed
uses less fossil hydrocarbons in its manufacture than in most memory foams, using bio-based oils such as soy. Also, water is used as the solvent in forming the foam, minimizing the emissions from Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC), enough so that their foam is certified as VOC free.
Additional benefits claimed by Zedbed
for its foam are:
~ Dust mite resistant
~ High density for better support and durability
The support level for R2
foam in the R2 Series
is, according to Zedbed
, "semi-firm with quick response." What this means for the customer is that a sleeper can change positions more easily with the foam more quickly adjusting to the new position. Additionally, motion transfer is dampened to reduce disturbance of one sleeper by the other.
The middle support layer in
mattresses is firm HD Talalay latex. Balancing the conformity of the R2
memory foam, the latex evens out body weight across the whole mattress. Air channels are used in some of the models to increase air circulation for cooling and ventilation.
Like the PURE mattresses, the foam in the top comfort layer of the Zedbed R2 Series
mattresses is infused with gel crystals to make it a "Snowpedic" material. This uses the heat absorbing and transfer properties of gel to cool the sleeping surface, countering the known tendency of viscoe elastic memory foam to accumulate heat and become hot.
mattresses, including those in the R2 Series
, utilize Gel Plus
) so the user can adjust the amount of cooling for personal preference, parts of the body, and seasons. The user can add or remove G+
pads as needed. How does Zedbed
do this? The mattresses have pockets just the right size and shape for these pads so they are easy to insert/remove and will stay in place.
The base (bottom) layer of an R2 Series
mattress is made of Zedbed
's own high density, extra firm base foam. Like the PURE
memory foams, this support foam is also made with a significant portion of soy oils to reduce the amount of fossil hydrocarbons in the product.
Tremperature control uses the company's Zedfresh
technology. But it also uses Outlast
fabric in the cover. Outlast
is made with fibers developed and patented by Invista (formerly part of Dow). These are knit into cover fabric by a company in Montreal, not far from the Zedbed
plant in Province Quebec.
