Is making the
TEMPLATE PATTERN as easy as it sounds?
It's as easy as tracing an
outline on paper. Some applications can be a little more involved, i.e.
an innerspring mattress that would be difficult to remove from the boat
but generally speaking, tracing the cushions is a simple process.
How does the 'Tufted
Topper' compare to an innerspring mattress?
Not only are we much more affordable
but we take up a lot less space, saving valuable head room. When 'Tufted Topper'
is used with your present cushions, it provides the same plush feel
and support equal to that of an expensive pillow-top mattress. 'Tufted
Topper' provides a virtual 'sea' of mattress comfort,
covering your entire sleeping area hiding everything from open seams
and extra firm foam to buttons and cording. You won't believe this 2"
pad can make such a difference until you try it.
What exactly is NANO~PEL
TM and why should I care if you
use it ?
NANO~PEL TM is a cutting-edge
fabric protector developed especially for the mattress industry
by Burlington House Fabrics. It is a permanent stain resistant process
that will not wash or wear off and can be easily spot cleaned with a
mild detergent and because it repels liquids and minimizes stains, it
is ideal for the marine industry. We are the first to use it exclusively.
You mention 4-layer
construction. Is that important?
Absolutely! Each layer plays
an important role and the materials were carefully selected for each
The bottom layer is a heavy
duty, tightly woven, cotton fabric which provides excellent wear protection
and helps to keep the 'Tufted Topper'
securely in place.
The 1" second layer is premium 1.6 density foam which adds body to the pad.
The 1" layer of pre-compressed
high density Dacron fiber-fill, is perhaps the most critical. It provides
the softness to the pad and insulates the body from the foam layer which
tends to absorb and retain heat and moisture. The fiber-fill layer disperses heat
and helps to maintain a comfortable and consistently cooler surface.
A BIG difference from sleeping directly on foam.
The NANO~PEL TM
outer fabric is absolutely the very best mattress surface available
and a natural for the marine environment. Tough and durable, yet soft
and smooth. Just like your mattress at home.
I've seen the mattress
displays at the boat shows and their products look really nice but I'm
concerned about a loss of headroom space with those thick mattress.
Head space is a very precious commodity. Replacing a 4" cushion with
an 8" - 10" mattress greatly reduces your available head room.
At just under 2" thick,
'Tufted Topper's' additional height is hardly noticeable,
but the cost savings is very noticeable!
