Coolmax Mattress Technology

Coolmax Technology

Coolmax technology features in many of our mattresses and it is incredibly beneficial, for a whole host of reasons. A lot of companies will brag about all these fancy technologies that they offer but not bother to explain what they actually are, so we thought we'd make it a bit easier for you. 

What is Coolmax?

Coolmax is, put simply, a fabric that helps to pull moisture away from the skin. You might have seen it used in sportswear and recognise the brand. As a clothing material, it helps to remove the sweat from your body so that you can stay cool when you're working hard. It's used as a cover material for mattresses for the same reason.

Have you ever gone to bed on a hot summer's evening, feeling all sweaty, and found that your bed really doesn't help to cool you down? If you don't have Coolmax technology, you can find that it's a lot harder to get comfortable because there is nothing to draw the moisture away from you. Having a mattress with Coolmax will ensure any moisture does not stick around, but is absorbed by the mattress to help it evaporate quicker. 

How does it work?

The physical structure of Coolmax fabric means moisture is pulled into it, away from the body. That moisture is then spread out thinly across the fabric to enable it to evaporate faster. The quicker it is able to evaporate, the dryer you are. This is what makes Coolmax such a popular fabric to use in both clothing and in mattress covers.

The benefits of Coolmax in a mattress

The fabric is extremely breathable, as well as being soft and moisture wicking. These properties make Coolmax suitable for high-performance products, when there is a real need to keep cool and dry. The material is also washable, allowing it to be cleaned with ease.

The fact that Coolmax is designed to remove moisture means that it is very quick drying. If you happen to spill something on your bed, you won't have to worry about it being damp for hours; the Coolmax material will get to work to evaporate the moisture quickly. Coolmax may be designed to keep you cool, but that doesn't mean it's unsuitable or uncomfortable to use in the winter. It can help to prevent a chill from setting into your skin by drawing away any moisture, regardless of whether it's hot or cold.

If you're not sure whether it's worth getting a mattress with Coolmax, think about what it will be like if you don't bother. If you spill a drink on your bed, it could take hours for it to dry, giving you a rather uncomfortable night's sleep. Similarly, if you have a fever, you'll want a nice, dry bed, so it makes perfect sense to have Coolmax and ensure any moisture can be drawn away as quickly as possible.
