Tempur Mattress Review & Guide
Tempur boasts its start with NASA in the 1970s providing cushion and support for astronauts. It now has a wide range of mattresses that are claimed to provide weight distribution and pressure relief, leaving you feeling weightless just like in space. Since mattresses are a long-term investment and there is plenty of choice in the market – we provide a concise review of each mattress range that Tempur offers.
The full Tempur mattress line is made in Denmark. The company offers single sided mattresses so these don’t require flipping and come with a 10 year guarantee. It boasts mattresses developed in partnership with an in-house design team along with a global team – IDEO.
Across the full range you will find tailored covers with a bright trim. The labels on each range are colour-coded so it makes it easy to distinguish which line the mattress belongs to. Two main systems in place across the mattresses are:
- Tempur CoolTouch Technology: the fabric is claimed to keep your cover feeling cool and absorb heat (this technology is available on selected mattresses and exclusive to Harvey Norman stores).
- Tempur QuickRefresh Cover: a machine washable cover that can be unzipped and washed with replacement covers also available for the Elite and Luxe mattresses.
The core range is designed for a firmer feel. It boasts space technology for weightless comfort and body contouring. The main difference between each mattress in this range is its layers. The Tempur Original Elite with Soft-Touch mattress has a Tempur Quilted Extra soft material at the top for comfort. One layer down you’ll find the Tempur Comfort Material, which is designed to provide a firm feel. The next layer is the Tempur Support Material, which is boasted to provide pressure relief. At the bottom you’ll find two layers of DuraBase technology for support.
The Tempur Hybrid line of mattresses is claimed to have the latest innovation with pressure relieving benefits and responsiveness of springs. The Hybrid range is boasted for dual layers of Precision MicroCoils, claimed to react to movement and be responsive.
The Tempur Hybrid Luxe with CoolTouch mattress features the Advanced Tempur Material at the top of the mattress, which is designed to help relieve pressure points. The second layer consists of the Tempur Dynamic support technology and the bottom layer uses the Tempur DuraBase technology. This layer structure can be found on most mattresses in the Hybrid range with slight alterations between each model.
