Comfort Last® Foam Core with Ultimate Edge® Support by Serta

May 19, 2015



Digging even deeper than last week, we finally reach the heart of Serta’s iComfort® Sleep System: the Comfort Last® Foam Core. This core is paired with Serta’s Ultimate Edge® Support, enhancing the firmness of the edge while also tightly containing the inner foam. Here’s what Serta has to say:

  • This advanced foam support system is designed to help support your body throughout the night, promoting a more restful night’s sleep. Plus, Ultimate Edge® Support strengthens the mattress edges, reducing that annoying edge “roll-off” so you have more room to stretch. Available in every iComfort Sleep System.

The Comfort Last® Foam Core with Ultimate Edge® Support is the densest part of the mattress, providing a solid and supportive foundation for the rest of the comfort layers to work off of. The Ultimate Edge® Support border is even denser, containing the inner foam and providing a more firm edge that resists bending and can support sitting. The Ultimate Edge® is important for couples who share a bed, as it increases the viable sleeping area from edge to edge, rather than just a sweet spot in the middle.



This combination of the Comfort Last® Foam Core with Ultimate Edge® Support also greatly enhances the durability of the mattress. The dense core is resistant to sagging and indentation to help reduce the formation of a body impression, and the Ultimate Edge® border keeps that inner foam tight and compact, while retaining the frame of the mattress to prevent twisting, bending, or warping. This technology used in conjunction with Serta’s cooling, contouring, and reactive comfort layers, achieves some of the most popular and effective mattresses on the market. Serta’s iComfort line has become a household name, and it all starts with the Comfort Last® Foam Core with Ultimate Edge® Support.


Pods™ Gel-Activated Support by Serta

May 12, 2015


This week we will take a look at one of Serta’s technologies that you will find buried deeper in their mattresses: Pods™ Gel-Activated Support. As usual, Serta says it best:

  • Strategically positioned macro-gel discs work with our Comfortlast® Foam Core support system to help provide extra push back support from the deepest part of the mattress and a firmer seating edge.

As you can see in the image below, the Pods™ Gel-Activated Support layer is most often found lower in the mattress. Unlike previous weeks technologies that are focused on cooling and providing initial comfort, Pods™ Gel-Activated Support is a clever technology used to bolster the support of your mattress near the core. The concept is similar to the reactive surfaces found in the higher layers of Serta mattresses, but instead of reacting with contouring, this design reacts with additional deep-down support.


Serta seems to have a layer of comfort material for every enemy of sleep. From heat, to contouring, to support, to edge support, Serta has a solution. Pods™ Gel-Activated Support aids in both of the latter, and in conjunction with the Comfort Last® Foam Core with Ultimate Edge® Support and a layer of Cool Action™ Dual Effects® Gel Memory Foam, each of these sleeping problems is addressed for an exceptional mattress.

There’s a reason Serta is #1.

To continue the series on sleeping technologies by Serta, this week we will cover EverFeel™ Technology. Unlike the previous three weeks’ technologies, cooling is not a primary concern of EverFeel™ memory foam. Instead, a thin layer of EverFeel™ material is usually used at the top of a mattress for the reasons Serta states below:

– The cradling comfort you expect from memory foam

– No need for time or temperature to adapt to your body

– A difference you will feel the moment you lie down

As you can see, unlike traditional memory foam, Serta’s EverFeel™ does not require the usual “break-in” period. This material is designed to react immediately, making it an exceptional surface layer for most mattresses. You will find a layer of Serta’s EverFeel™ material in several of their models, usually, but not always, as the very first layer. EverFeel™ memory foam provides immediate contouring for immediate comfort the moment you lie down. You won’t find yourself coaxing your mattress into providing you with proper comfort as with some other memory foams, and can expect a comfortable surface as soon as you lie down, every time.

Just another revolutionary advancement in memory foam technology brought to you by Serta.


EverCool™ Memory Foam by Serta

April 28, 2015


Serta revolutionized the already revolutionary technology of memory foam by pursuing solutions that combated its main drawback: heat retention. In the last two weeks we have covered Cool Action™ Gel and Cool Action™ Dual Effects® Gel Memory Foam, two successful evolutions in Serta’s crusade for a cool sleeping memory foam mattress. Today we will cover a separate branch of of Serta’s technology: EverCool™ Memory Foam. The EverCool™ technology takes a different approach than Cool Action™ Gel and Cool Action™ Dual Effects® Gel Memory Foam, making it a different branch that has evolved separately from the Cool Action™ line. The cousin of Cool Action™ Gel Memory Foam, EverCool™ Memory Foam, does not use gel infused foam and conductive gel beads to dissipate heat, but instead features a super-fine infusion of heat-conducting graphene.


The current EverCool™ Gfx Memory Foam combines premium, breathable memory foam with graphene to allow airflow and greatly enhanced heat dissipation. The conductive graphene, much like the Cool Action™ Gel beads, actually pulls heat away from the body and disperses it more evenly where it can be whisked away from a large surface area of the mattress rather than collected beneath and against your body. All of this while Serta’s premium memory foam provides supple body conforming comfort that gently contours to the body while reacting to provide proper and accurate support with enhanced cushioning. Serta’s graphene infused memory foam also greatly increases the lifespan of the mattress, by reducing concentrated heat and pressure wearing down the key areas you sleep on most. EverCool™ Gfx Memory Foam by Serta is just another breakthrough in the science of sleep brought to you by America’s #1 mattress company.

Sleep cool, sleep soundly, sleep Serta.


Cool Action™ Gel by Serta

April 21, 2015

cagcircle-aThere are many reasons why Serta is America’s #1 mattress brand. One of the main reasons is innovation and revolutionary sleeping technologies. Cool Action™ Gel pioneered a new category of sleep systems with Cool Action™ Gel Memory Foam material, exclusive to Serta. This innovation was a result of careful study and refinement of existing memory foam products, combating what is considered the biggest drawback of memory foam: heat retention. Heat build-up during the night can cause uncomfortable and restless sleep. Serta’s Cool Action™ material combines open-cell structure and their MicroSupport™ Gel to significantly increase airflow and the ability to dissipate heat. Ordinary memory foam can trap heat against the body, but Serta’s Cool Action™ material whisks heat away from the body, and claims to be up to 12 times more breathable than ordinary memory foam. Serta’s Cool Action™ material also does not require the same “break-in” period as other memory foams do, being engineered to deliver superior comfort from day one, and maintaining its pressure-relieving comfort through a wider range of room temperatures than ordinary memory foam. All of Serta’s iComfort mattress models feature Cool Action™ Gel Memory Foam.


Cool Action™ Gel Memory Foam is the predecessor to Cool Action™ Dual Effects® Gel Memory Foam which we covered last week. This breakthrough technology took revolutionary memory foam mattresses to the next level by addressing the primary drawback that was keeping memory foam from sweeping the market of innerspring mattresses. Serta continues to improve on the design, and many other companies have come up with rival technologies to keep up with the success of Serta’s iComfort mattresses, which all started with the invention of MicroSupport™ and Cool Action™ Gel.


Cool Action™ Dual Effects® Gel Memory Foam by Serta

April 14, 2015


As the #1 mattress brand in America, you should expect revolutionary ideas and technologies to come from Serta. Cool Action™ Dual Effects® Gel Memory Foam is just one of many revolutionary technologies brought to you by Serta to help achieve a perfect night’s sleep. Combining memory foam and cooling gel technology, Serta has created something with the benefits of both, and virtually no drawbacks or compromises. I think Serta said it best, so below are informative blurbs from Serta itself from a digital catalog information kit about the ever popular iComfort line:

“Cool Action™ Dual Effects® Gel Memory Foam

Serta’s latest breakthrough in gel memory foam technology is the world’s first dual-action gel memory foam infused with both Serta’s original MicroSupport® gel and our latest MicroCool+® gel. Millions of gel beads gather under the areas of your body that need extra support while also helping the mattress dissipate heat away from the sleep surface.”

“Cool Action™ Dual Effects®

Millions of Serta’s original MicroSupport® gel beads gather under the areas of your body that need extra push back support. Meanwhile, our MicroCool+™ gel features advanced phase change material encapsulated in a proprietary gel designed to efficiently capture, store and ultimately dissipate away heat from the mattress layers above. This unique and exclusive design works to provide more support where your body needs it and gives the material an enhanced ability to transport heat away from the mattress layers above it.”

As you can see, this technology single-handedly solves two of the most prevalent issues when it comes to a good night’s sleep: support and sleeping temperature. Finding the right mattress that uses this technology, with the core and complementing comfort layers right for your Comfort Scale rating preferences and sleep style, and the bedding to go with it, is all that stands in the way of you getting a a great night’s sleep every night for years to come. Did you expect anything less from #1?


What is CertiPUR-US®?

February 26, 2015


Memory foam is a popular product in many of today’s mattress and bedding products — and even with its exceptional support benefits, there are concerns about its manufacture and health effects.

This is where CertiPUR-US® comes in. This is a program that allows companies to show customers that their memory foam products meet specific environmental and health standards. By applying for certification, a company can display the CertiPUR-US® seal in photos of their products so that customers know that they’re purchasing from a company that cares about lessening the possible risks of memory foam.

Any company that wishes to display CertiPUR-US® certification makes their products without the following:

  • Ozone depleters
  • PBDE flame retardants
  • Mercury, lead, and other heavy metals
  • Formaldehyde
  • Phthalates regulated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission

Such products also have low Volatile Organic Compound emissions to maintain the quality of indoor air.

The guidelines are stringent, so any company that wishes to apply must be willing to meet extremely high standards in order to feature the CertiPUR-US® seal. Not only have these requirements been developed by leading environmentalists, chemists, research scientists, and industry leaders, but they’re also considered to be living documents — that is, they can be revised and interpreted according to new and relevant research and results. This allows CertiPUR-US® to remain current so that you, the consumer, can continue to trust their name and their standards.

US-Mattress carries numerous brands that boast CertiPUR-US® certification — including mattress companies Serta, Simmons, and Spring Air, as well as the furniture and linens brands Klaussner, Jackson Furniture, and Malouf. Check us out today to find healthy, eco-friendly memory foam products at fantastic prices!
