Q: What mattress do you recommend for a 15 year boy? and what do you use as a fire retardent in your mattresses? Question from joey


Your main aim is to achieve good "posture" in bed.  Too soft and your body will slouch - often leading to back pain - and too firm and you will cause discomfort at pressure points such as your hips and shoulder.  Ideally the mattress should mould to the shape of your body while remaining supportive.  When you lie on your side your spine should be horizontal and you should be able to turn easily.

Fabrics and fillings have different fibre contents, as such require a whole range of different types and applications of FR treatments.  All our materials are safe to human health and our environment. Our materials meet strict EU guidelines and our suppliers are constantly striving to continuously improve as required by international laws and boundaries.
