1. What is the Gel Foam Bed Mattress?

It is a revolutionary plush pressure sensitive mattress crafted with Halcyon foam, along with billions of microscopic air capsules that help to enhance self-adjusting support while alleviating pressure on key areas of the body.

The company specializes in technologically advanced mattresses to offer a restful and comfortable sleeping experience.

With its Supportive Air Technology, non toxic, safe and durable construction, high level of pressure relief and support, and comfortable and cool sleep surface, this mattress is skyrocketing in performance and becoming a preferred choice among sleepers.

The manufacturer infuses gel evenly throughout the memory foam cell as opposed to infusing beads of gel encapsulated into the mattress. This in turn helps you to get a cooler sleeping surface.

Available in 3 different models with 3 different firmness levels, the Gel Foam bedding offers a plethora of benefits and features that enable you to wake up feeling rejuvenated and refreshed.

2. Does it Become Hot While I Sleep?

No, the mattress does not become hot while you sleep!

The gel suffused memory foam layer does a wonderful job at keeping the mattress cool, and averting heat build up.

This mattress foam mattress utilizes gel properties to help you sleep significantly cooler, and fend you off from sinking in too far, so that you do not feel stuck.

In addition to this, its Halcyon Foam helps you to sleep cooler all throughout the night by releasing body heat, while staying dryer and cooler at the same time.

Although memory foam beds tend to cause heat buildup and the sleeper may feel the common sweaty feeling, but the Gel Foam Bed mattress fares quite well in this category.

3. How is its Firmness?

Gel Foam beds basically come in three firmness options in three different models which are as follows:

The 14 inches Venus mattress is ultra plush, and is rated at a 3 out of 10 on the firmness scale, where 10 is the firmest. It is designed to support the sleeper’s spine while still providing the ultimate comfort.

The 12 inches Miranda mattress is a medium plush model which is rated at a 5.5 out of 10 on the firmness scale.

The 10 inches Triton mattress is a medium firm model which is rated at a 7 to 8 on the firmness scale. It is loaded with everything you require to experience a supportive and comfortable sleep.

All the mattresses do a good job at offering support to the sleeper’s body.

Additionally, they provide the body hug and contouring that is expected from all foam mattresses, but vary in the degree of plushness and comfort depending on the type of model.

4. What Kind of Cover Does it Have?

The cover of the mattress is simple, appealing and soft.

The mattress has 1.5 inches of gel suffused memory foam quilted in its cover that promotes cooling, and also provides additional comfort to the mattress.
