The Activate range is created using Vitalize technology inside. Vitalize technology is a special thread that recycles your body heat and turns into energy which provides relaxation of contracted muscles, it increases blood flow and as a result more nutrients, oxygen, white blood cells and antibodies get into the tissues. This technology alongside the well-known TEMPUR material allows for a heightened sleep experience. The Balance range brings you the perfect balance between support and comfort.
The one thing that all conventional (spring, waterbed, foam) mattresses have in common is that they force the user to conform to them. With TEMPUR®, the mattress actually conforms to the body.
By conforming to your body, the TEMPUR® mattress eliminates virtually all pressure points and spreads body weight
No, in fact the TEMPUR® mattress should never be turned.
One of the advantages of owning a TEMPUR®mattress from our current collections* is that all models have removable
washable covers. In all cases you can unzip, remove and machine wash the whole cover at 60°C. (This task is easier with two
people.) In addition our Elite and Luxe models have been designed with QuickRefresh™ tops. This means you only need unzip,
remove and wash the top layer which you directly sleep on. It is important when you launder your mattress cover that you
always follow the manufacturer's instructions which can be found on a label stitched inside.
Should you wish to purchase a replacement or spare cover for your mattress in the future, please contact us for a quotation.
We will need to know the exact model and size you purchased to ensure you receive the correct one. We also recommend
the use of a TEMPUR-FIT™ Mattress Protector to keep your bed nice and fresh.
*Because we are always looking to improve our products, TEMPUR® owners of older models should check the care
instructions of their mattress carefully. Some models such as the TEMPUR® Celebrity 31 could have covers which cannot be
removed or washed.
As a general rule of thumb, if your mattress has TEMPUR® material embedded or quilted into the cover (this applies to the
majority of older 'Deluxe' models,) while it may be removed for airing, it is not washable. Any subsequent washing will
invalidate your guarantee.
If you are not sure, please call us on 0800 0111 083 during regular office hours for further advice. You may also find some use
hints and tips on our Caring for TEMPUR® page.
We do not recommend electric blankets, the warranty will not be effected if the electric blanket is less than 10 years old. We discourage the use of electric blankets for the reason that the blanket causes an unnatural barrier between the body and the mattress.
We get this question often, but in fact, sleeping warm on a TEMPUR® mattress is not an issue that our owners raise
frequently. Our mattresses are designed to respond to your body temperature, which activates their ability to conform to your
body, offering support and reducing pressure points. It is worth noting that with the improved support and reduced pressure
points on your body, sleeping on our mattresses can help increase circulation, so you may find you need lighter bedding. If
you feel warmer, try using a lower tog duvet, breathable bedding and keep your room well ventilated.
Yes. The TEMPUR® mattress and pillow have been clinically proven to reduce tossing and turning from an average 100
times during the night, to around 17 times. Testing by the Institution for Clinical & Physiological Research at the Lillhagen
Hospital in Gothenburg, Sweden of 23,000 patients for a period corresponding to approximately 8 years of clinical and inhome
use concluded that the patients suffered from less pain and experienced greatly enhanced and deeper sleep.
The TEMPUR® material was originally developed in the early 1970’s at NASA’s Ames Research Centre, to relieve the
pressure build up from the G-force experienced by astronauts during lift off. TEMPUR® scientists realised the enormous
potential of this material and began experiments in the early 1980’s to perfect it for consumer use. After millions of dollars in
research, the TEMPUR® material we know today was perfected. As a result TEMPUR® was presented with an award by NASA
in May 1998.
1. One of the most reliable indicators of a mattress's comfort is the frequency of night time body position changes - tossing and
turning. The fewer times you move, the better sleep you have. Clinical tests proved that a TEMPUR® mattress can reduce toss
and turn by up to 80%.
2. Many people believe that waterbeds give you almost perfect support by allowing your body to ‘float’ in a natural position. In
fact, due to displacement the waterbed creates what experts call the “hammock effect.” This is an unnatural and unhealthy
curve of the spine resulting from improper support. The TEMPUR® mattress allows your spine to rest in its natural position,
giving you optimum sleeping posture and comfort.
3. Fully sprung mattresses covered by quilted thickly padded ticking mean you are lying on row after row of coiled sprung metal.
This often creates pressure points that can cause painful joints and an aching back. The visco-elastic material in the TEMPUR®
mattress moulds to your body, adjusting to your body weight, and distributing it evenly, reducing pressure and providing
maximum support. Our TEMPUR® Hybrid Collection incorporates Precision™ Micro Coils in the base layer for those customers
who prefer a faster response, but want the benefits that TEMPUR® material brings too.
4. Several copy visco mattresses are available today, but they are not visco elastic and do not have the 85kg density of the
TEMPUR® material or its durability of 10 years. The TEMPUR® open cell visco-elastic material moulds to the exact contours of
your body, giving you maximum support and pressure relief where you need it most.
