No, the mattresses are rolled using very advance vacuum packing and mattress-rolling technology. Once opened, your mattress will be just like a regular mattress and it is not possible for them to be re-rolled – unless you’re a super hero of course!

Absolutely. In fact, because a Jay-Be® mattress is vacuum packed, it remains fresh until the day it is unwrapped by you. The comfort layers and springs in our mattress are all excellent quality and once the mattress has been unrolled, you will love watching your mattress expand to its full size. A free 5-year manufacturer guarantee comes with every Jay-Be® mattress for your further comfort.

Jay-Be® has embraced the latest vacuum packing technology to offer even higher quality, more convenience and better value, whilst reducing our carbon foot print. A typical traditional mattress is simply put into a large bag at the factory after it is made. It’s then delivered to your home. These large mattresses take up a lot of space on the delivery wagons, costing a huge amount to transport but also reducing efficiency.

These high delivery costs are passed on to you. However, because Jay-Be® vacuum pack and roll all our mattresses, we ensure they remain fresh until they are opened but rolling them also reduces the amount of space they require for delivery – This reduces delivery costs, so you get more for your money! This modern packing method also helps to reduce carbon emissions by ensuring less lorries are needed on the roads to deliver our mattresses. A typical Jay-Be® rolled mattress helps to cut down transport emissions by reducing the space required for delivery by more than 70% (comparing an unrolled 3ft mattress with a rolled 3ft mattress).

A vacuum packed, rolled mattress is the latest innovation in mattress packing and distribution. Traditionally, a mattress would be packed into a loose plastic bag after it is made – this method didn’t offer much protection. By embracing the latest mattress packing technology, Jay-Be® mattresses are vacuum packed first to ensure they stay fresh until the day you open them, but they’re also rolled so they take up less space to deliver. This reduces transport costs by approximately 70% so savings can be passed onto you, but also makes it easier for you to take the mattress up your stairs and into your bedroom.

Materials which are hypoallergenic contain relatively few or no potentially irritating substances, and thereby less likely to contribute to allergic reactions than other materials. People with a hypersensitive immune system or sensitive skin may find these materials contribute to a more comfortable sleep environment.

Actively creating a cleaner and healthier sleeping environment, Purotex® is one of the most innovative and beneficial mattress technologies to help ensure a peaceful night’s sleep, especially for children who have a hyper-sensitive immune system. Infused within the fabric of Jay-Be® Anti-Allergy mattresses, Purotex® is a 100% natural pro-biotic remedy which absorbs moisture and lowers the presence of dust mites and other allergens, thereby helping to reduce the potential trigger of allergic reactions which can interrupt sleep. You can learn more about Purotex® on their website.

An Open Coil Sprung mattress has a traditional inter-connected spring system at its core. Each spring is connected to its neighbouring spring and act as one uniform support system. Open coils springs come in varying gauges to offer softer and firmer feels.

Jay-Be® Open Coil Sprung mattresses have Smart Airflow Fibre comfort layers which offer recovery and support like foam but unlike foam, Airflow Fibre is 100% recyclable, free from Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s), odourless and hypoallergenic. Furthermore, the unique open cell structure of Airflow Fibre comfort layers allows air to flow through the mattress which reduces moisture build up, thereby creating a drier, fresher and more temperature ambient sleep environment.

A Pocket Sprung mattress contains a core of individual springs, each resting within their own fabric pocket. This allows each spring to move independently which enables the mattress to adapt to the subtle contours of your body, for even more support and comfort. All Jay-Be® Pocket Sprung mattresses have Smart Airflow Fibre comfort layers which offer recovery and support like foam but unlike foam, Airflow Fibre is 100% recyclable, free from Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s), odourless and hypoallergenic.

Furthermore, the unique open cell structure of Airflow Fibre comfort layers allows air to flow through the mattress which reduces moisture build up, thereby creating a drier, fresher and more temperature ambient sleep environment.

This is a good question and is often confusing for the consumer. The spring count is essentially the number of springs within the mattress. However, because the same mattress is often available in different sizes, the industry has generally taken to quoting one spring count based on the 5ft/150cm mattress width. This is because they are referring to the density of springs and it is important that consumers compare like for like.

For instance, a 90cm wide mattress with circa 575 springs will have approximately the same density of springs as a 150cm wide mattress with 1000 springs. Therefore, they will provide the same feel. To be completely transparent, we try to quote both numbers wherever possible (e.g. We say our Supreme Single Pocket Sprung Folding Bed has 400 springs which is the equivalent of 1000 springs in a 5ft size mattress).

Comfort is subjective, so it is for each individual to decide. However, it is widely agreed that having more pocket springs enables the mattress to react to the subtle contours of your body, thereby delivering a more personal and comfortable sleeping environment.

Memory foam is a special type of polyurethane foam, originally developed by NASA and often referred to as “Viscoelastic Foam”. It is unique as it softens in relation to body heat, then moulds to your individual shape for increased pressure relief.

Jay-Be® Memory Foam mattresses combine a top layer of Memory Foam with a base layer of Airflow Fibre. This helps to increase breathability for a drier and fresher mattress, but it also supports our company’s World First® philosophy since Airflow Fibre is 100% recyclable.

An Airflow Fibre mattress is made up of smart polyester fibres which are bonded together to offer varying softness’s and support like foam but unlike foam, Airflow Fibre is 100% recyclable, free from Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s), odourless and hypoallergenic. Furthermore, the unique open cell structure of Airflow Fibre allows air to flow through the mattress which reduces moisture build up, thereby creating a drier, fresher and more temperature ambient sleep environment.
