Testing the Ergoflex third generation mattress

Hi All First to John and Ryan.

Thank you for creating a website with so much valuable information.

Understanding how a mattress is made what constitutes a “good one” is indeed a minefield.

I would like to add a couple of comments re memory foam products.

We have a had an Ergo mattress for the past 4 to 5 years.

I can say that it has provided a good many years comfort but it does take a while to adjust to that new sensation of it molding to your body.

We have followed the maintenance suggestions and have no dip or depression.

Also we have a wood slatted bed spaced every 2 to 3 inches and hasnt caused any issues.

One thing I can confirm is during hot weather they do retain a further amount of heat.

If you are in any way heat sensitive I wouldn’t bother.

We are considering changing from the foam to a springs/” title=”pocket spring”>pocket spring as my wife is at that time of life when the hot flushes are a problem.

We have ordered a 3rd Gen Ergo single as it claims to have a cool zone.

I have my doubts so my daughter is acting as a guinea pig as the single is for her room.

So my question guys that if this 3rd gen dosen’t work out then I have the following need.

King Size mattress medium firm, I have an occasional lower back problem.

Keeping cool is very important for the aforementioned reason.

Weights, I am 11.5 stone and the wife 12.50 stones.

Budget will be around £800.00.

Many thanks Chris .

Hi Chris.

Bear in mind that all Memory Foam mattresses will have a relative heat element associated and personally, I don’t think castelations or cutaways within the foam have the capability of offering anything in the way of increased airflow between you and the mattress.

Natural fibre filled mattresses create the coolest sleep surfaces so the Artisan 1500 would be a great starter model from this range. I would recommend a medium tension spring for you both.

Upto 16 Stone / 50-101kgMedium (1.4mm)

Available in Bespoke Products (Please Call)Soft (1.2mm)

The Kingsize mattress retails at £965 (Aug 2018)

Let us know how this works out for you.
