Sealy is synonymous across Australia with quality mattresses. And we couldn’t be prouder. We want to tell you why Sealy really is a cut above the rest.
Handcrafted in Australia
Sealy mattresses are handcrafted with the utmost care, right here in Australia. We have five state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities where 600 Australians hand craft almost 1,000 mattresses every day. The materials we use include steel that is milled here and timber sourced from sustainable, local plantations.
Durability and support
At the end of the day, the technology that goes into every Sealy mattress has one important purpose: to facilitate the best sleep for our customers. Years of research and development go into each design, which is based on the foundational principles of orthopaedic support.
Sealy’s spring systems are engineered to help provide this orthopaedic support and conformance while also being durable. The two most common options are the SRx®II and the ReST®II, both of which are made from titanium alloy.
The SRx®II has coils with two phases; soft turns at the top and steeper turns at the base. The coils are arranged in alternating columns for reduced surface motion.
The ReST®II coil system, which can be found in the top-of-the-line Posturepedic Crown Jewel and Posturepedic Exquisite collections, has coils with three phases instead of two. The top phase is composed of a surface made from free-floating coils. Like the SRx®II, this system also positions the coils in an alternating pattern to reduce surface motion.
“The top phase of the ReST®II coil provides the initial conformance from when you first engage with the product. The next phase is the transition from the initial conformance to the deep support. The lower body of the coil provides that deep support. These elements combine to assist in providing optimal alignment for the spine, which allows muscles to relax and help with a deeper night’s sleep,” says Daniel Green, Research and Development Manager.
The Exquisite range also features a new stabiliser base that increases stability as well as the longevity of the mattress.
“The centre third of the base is strengthened by DuraFlex® XT which increases stability and distributes force from the mattress through the base, ensuring long-lasting durability,” he says.
It may not be something you give much thought to, but edge support systems are key to stabilising the whole mattress and providing that superior Sealy support.
Our basic system, EdgeGuard®, is composed of a polyethylene beam that goes around the edge of the mattress and connects to the spring unit. It provides a firm seating edge to the bed.
Next, we have Unikey which is a more advanced system that encases all sides of the mattress and has keys that lock into the spring unit .This system increases stability and the amount of sleeping surface that is usable.
Last there is the UniCased® and UniCased® XT edge support systems which go a step further by encasing the entire bottom of the mattress in addition to the sides.
“With the UniCased® XT product, you can sit or lay on the edge of the mattress without feeling like you’ll roll out,” says Daniel.
The final word in a good night’s sleep: Comfort
Support and durability are equally important, but the last word in a good night’s sleep is, of course, comfort.
Sealy’s comfort layers are layers of materials such as high-density foam, natural latex and gel-infused visco, configured in various ways to provide ultimate comfort. They create the ‘feel’ of the bed and provide conformance, especially in the lower lumbar region of the back.
“We’ve used premium comfort layers [in the Exquisite range] including a gel visco-infused comfort air layer. This is designed to help relieve pressure, which decreases tossing and turning at night,” says Daniel.
In addition to this is the Sealy Smartex® fabric treatment. “Smartex® fabrics move heat away from the body, providing a cooler night’s sleep even in warmer climates.”
As you can see, a legacy of research and dedication is at the heart of every Sealy mattress. We want to provide Australians with quality sleep that allows them to have a better quality of life all around.
So why not find your perfect mattress and experience a good night’s rest?
