Q Why is turning so important? 

A  Settlement should be expected in all mattresses – this is to be expected as the springs move individually while the fillings cradle your body. Regular maintenance will help the fillings settle and compact down more evenly.  Please follow our turning and handling instructions enclosed with your items, which are to turn and rotate monthly. Non Turn mattresses are to be rotated only and not turned.  Handles are intended to help position the mattress correctly on the base. Handles are not designed to carry the full weight of a mattress.

Q Why do I need an Fire Regulated mattress?

A  It is a legal requirement that contract beds must conform to the Fire Regulations BS7177 (1996) fire retardancy level source 5. Failure to comply with these can result in a shut-down of your business, but in turn having a fire test composite can only benefit your insurance premium. Domestic mattresses are not to be used in a business setting. The fillings used in any mattress must conform to the requirements of the Furniture and Furnishings Fire Safety Regulations 1988. If a mattress is to be used in high risk areas such as oil rigs, mental institutions, prisons etc Ignition source 7 is required, otherwise medium hazard Ignition source 5 is adequate providing that issues such as fire detection, alarm systems, escape routes, etc all comply.
