Are they good for a bad back?

Yes they are extremely good for any back, bad or healthy. This is because of the foam construction they perfectly contour and support your body.

How long do they take to unroll?

Five minutes if that, and then it takes about an hour for them to fully fill out into the corners of the cover.

Back to top

Are they long lasting?

Yes, all Relaxsan products carry a manufacturers warranty of between 6 and 15 years.

Back to top

Do they make you sweat?

No, all quality mattresses feel warm purely because of the depth of upholstery giving a high level of insulation.

I slept on a foam hospital bed and that made me sweat!

Yes it would because it will have had a rubber incontinence sheet on and that was what made you sweat.

Back to top

What do they feel like?

Very supportive as you can feel the mattress contouring and supporting you all along your body which you will not usually feel with a sprung mattress and not at all "bouncy" because there are no springs inside.

The best thing to do though is to ring Relaxsan on 0208 209 0108 and ask them for your  local stockiest and lie on one, but do not forget that the best prices and overnight delivery are at www.brandbury.co.uk

Can they be rolled back up?

No.

Back to top

Are there any problems with them?

The  only problems we have had are that on unrolling they have an odour, which is because they have been so tightly packed from the factory and is really equivalent to the smell you get with a brand new car (and you do not complain about that) or a brand new pine wardrobe and soon disappears, usually within a day or two. The other issue we have had is people assume incorrectly that a firmer mattress is better for you and chose the Original mattress when they would really have been better suited with the Orthosoft or Waterlattex because the Original is Extremely firm.

Back to top

Are they suitable for Pine and Metal bedsteads?

Yes they are ideal for these types of bed but should not be used on the floor or on any solid sheet material that is not ventilated.

Back to top

How long do they take to arrive?

If we have what you require in stock the following working day and if it is not in stock 5~16 days, but in any event you will be kept fully informed and we do not process your payment until we dispatch your mattress.

Back to top

How thick are they?

Approximately 17cm thick. 20cm for the Deluxe matts.

Back to top

How does a Waterlattex compare to a Orthosoft/ Original?

The Waterlattex is a more comfortable mattress but other than that you really do need to lie on a mattress to make your own personal comparison. For a pictorial of the composition of these mattresses please click HERE.

How do these mattresses compare to Tempur?

The Medicalform uses a similar foam to Tempur but really any comparison must be based on lying on both mattresses.

Back to top

Does the price include delivery?

Yes. We believe the price you see is the price you should pay, there is nothing more annoying than working through some online payment system and then finding a delivery charge, the only exceptions to this are the obvious ones such as the Highlands of Scotland. For full details please click here.

Why no online ordering?

There is. If you click the order link it will take you to our secure online ordering area. The best way by far to order a mattress is to ring us on 0161 764 2046 and check we have it in stock (though for most popular sizes we always keep large stocks), then order online so that you get instant written confirmation and you can benefit from our online tracking service, though if you wish you can order over the phone.

Do we offer a try and return service?

No we do not and I am always suspicious of  firms that do, what do they do with the old ones, throw them away? That is one of the beauties of these mattresses, because they come tightly rolled you can be absolutely sure they have never been used in anyway and are hygienic every time.

Back to top

Can our Mattresses be used with an Electric Blanket?

The Orthosoft, Original and Waterlattex mattresses are no problem with an Electric blanket, with Visco elastic mattresses though using an Electric blanket will not damage the mattress, it will insulate your body heat from the mattress and prevent the mattress from performing to the full.

Back to top

Can our Mattresses be used on profiling beds?

We would recommend that you use the more supple mattresses such as the Waterlattex and the Medicalform on profiling beds rather than the firmer ones but please note that theses mattresses are not specifically designed for this use and though many people do use them for this purpose we cannot accept any responsibility if you do have any problems. If you intend using a mattress on a profiling bed you are probably best to ring us on 0161 764 2046 for a chat about your specific needs.
