Blue-Tek brings added Innovation and Technology to Memory Foam Mattresses

Top 10 bedding producer Kingsdown Inc., introduced its solution to, “sleeping hot” on memory foam taking the best in airflow technology with the introduction of the new Blu-Tek® collection with Cool Support Technology™ at the Las Vegas Market in August 2011.

A four step Cool Support Technology process allows Blu-Tek beds to sleep cooler than conventional foam mattresses: The horizontal channel cut design allows air to move freely through the mattress; the vertical pinhole design in the ProSupport Plus layer allows warmer air to channel up and out of the mattress; the pinhole design of the foam edge support rail allows for horizontal airflow and ventilation of the mattress core; and the mattress cover is designed with a permeable border fabric that allows cross ventilation of the mattress core.

Another feature of the Blu-Tek series is in its technology and layers. The collection uses real engineering to provide support and comfort ensuring maximum strength, resilience and durability.

Engineered with vertical zoning and support, a Progressive Support System™ is added to flex and conform to each body’s unique needs, offering innerspring type support in a foam product. The specially designed ProSupport™ and ProSupport Plus™ channel-cut base layers create an industry-first solution to vertical and horizontal airflow as well as vertical zoning. Edge-to-edge sleep support, provided by a firm perimeter foam, and a lumbar support layer down the center of the bed add an extra level of support.

“Our commitment to sleep research and science has culminated in the industry’s newest foam line,” said Kingsdown Inc., President Bob Hellyer. “While individually some of these technologies have been on the market for several years, we’ve successfully fused the best benefits of each and used new cutting edge research and technology to eliminate one of the most discussed problems in the industry.

Blu-Tek is available in several comfort feels and firmness, with latex, gel, visco, and conventional foams as well as a latex/gel/visco combination. Suggested retails start at $1499.
