The mattress is one of the most important components of the bed, with the greatest role in ensuring your comfort. Its properties are determined by its structure, composition, and the types of materials that it is made from. The mattress is one means of supporting a sleeping body, but on its own or with a conventional single-row wood-sprung insert it is incapable of meeting all the requirements for ideal sleep (perfect support for the body and spine, optimal flexibility, motion damping, freedom from tension points, comfort, climatic effect, etc.).

Most people only truly experience the extra comfort that the three-part DEMKO® BioSystem can offer when they change their “other” mattress for a DEMKO® BioSystem Mattress. This is something that everyone should try! In addition to the Biosystem® mattresses, we also offer high quality organic and other mattress types in a variety of thicknesses. All our mattresses are long-lasting, shape-retaining, and excellent value for money.

Sleep specialists agree that mattress types consisting of a block, slab or layers, made from natural basic materials, or from materials with a similar molecular composition, make the ideal surface for sleeping on. It is important to note that based on our sleep philosophy, metal-sprung (Bonell) matresses have no place in the DEMKO® BioSystem range. (Sleeping on metal, metal lattice, springs or water for long periods is not advisable.)

The materials we use

The DEMKO® BioSystem Matress is made of natural materials that possess special properties or otherwise meet all the quality requirements necessary for a healthy body and spine, and a good night’s sleep.

1. Latex

Natural latex: An air-permeable slab of foam with closed pores, made from natural caoutchouc, with one or more firmness zones. It has excellent flexibility and strength, and is exceptionally elastic.

Latex mix: Made from 20% natural latex and 80% closed cell foam slab, which has a similar molecular structure, incorporating air vents.
A lighter, longer-lasting, environmentally friendly product in a lower price category.

Eco latex: Made by grinding up the “off-cuts” (of new latex) generated in the manufacturing process, and forming them into slabs. A firmer, lower-priced material.

2.  Coconut coir

A well-ventilated slab made from plant fibres (the seeds of the coconut palm) in a range of thicknesses and sizes, moulded into shape using caoutchouc (latex) rubber solution and heat treatment. A moderately flexible, relatively firm product with medium shape retention and excellent thermal insulation properties.

3.  Wool

The core slab of the mattress is enveloped in wool, which is extremely important due to its excellent climatic and hypoallergenic properties.

4.  Cotton

We use this on the summer side of the mattresses, but it is also used for the outer covering of all mattress types, with a variety to choose from.

5. Other materials used in mattresses (cold foam, memory foam etc.).

In response to consumer demand, our range also includes mattresses made from cold foam (polyurethane) using a special chemical process. These are more economically priced, but also have different properties. Memory foam was originally developed for astronauts. Also known as lazy foam, it absorbs pressure evenly and conforms to the shape of the body.

Its benefits are lightness and durability, although it is less elastic.

It is chiefly used in mattresses for hotels, and in children’s mattresses.
