WHAT IS LATEX?Latex is a premium solid core mattress material. Latex offers superior comfort and durability when compared to memory Foam and other mattress foams. Furthermore, it is incredibly durable with some examples of Latex beds being 40 years + in age and still offering support and comfort! Latex is a derivative of the rubber tree and, in its true form, is the premium natural foam alternative. This, in turn, makes it a more expensive material. Latex is not heat retentive like some other foams and has a rapid response rate; this means it returns to its original shape very quickly. It is often classed as the top end mattressfoam material.
Latex is by nature hypo-allergenic, anti-microbial and dust mite resistant. With the exception of Latex allergies, it is a prime choice for those who have sensitive skin or non-Latex allergies.The key to quality Latex lies in its construction method which will usually be anything from completely synthetic, chemically reproduced Latex equivalent, to 100% Natural solid Latex. The latter being the premium material.
