Q: Argos have your dashwood 1200 latex mattress on sale at the moment, could you tell me how deep the layer of latex is and what sort of latex is used. Question from D Alexander

A:

Our latex is a blend of natural and synthetic materials to give optimum physical performance and also compliance to legal flammability requirements. Our latex in mattresses does not come into direct skin contact with the sleeper, as such the risk of any adverse reactions is virtually nil. There are no hazardous chemicals within the latex. Hundreds of thousands of satisfied consumers are testament to this fact. Please note, as with all textile-based products, there are chemicals present but all materials we use are from reputable suppliers where raw materials meet stringent EU or international safety standards for safety against human health or damage to our environment.

The layer of latex used is approx. 25mm thick.
