Do you and your partner have very different sleeping styles?
Do you need different comfort levels or do you have completely different body weights and are struggling to find a mattress that is comfortable for you both?
If this is the case then a Zip and Link mattress and bed may just be the answer to your sleep deprived dreams.
Essentially two separate mattresses that can be zipped together to form one bed, a zip and link mattress is the perfect solution to help you and your partner sleep better at night.
What is a zip and link bed?
This is a bed that can be either one big bed or two single beds by means of linking bars on the base and zippers on the mattresses. The mattresses can be crafted with a different spring tension on each side – great for differently weighted sleepers as you can have the two mattresses with their own individual support levels. The beds are robust and sturdy with well made bars to keep them linked so there is no way for them to accidentally come apart.
What are the benefits?
Apart from offering the perfect sleeping solution for partners, zip and link mattresses also offer versatility. A twin room with two beds can become a room with a king or super king sized bed easily and quickly thanks to how simple the mechanism is to link/unlink the beds.
Some properties have narrow staircases and can be near impossible to get a super king mattress and bed up to the bedroom. As the zip and link bed and mattress come in two parts, delivery of your super king bed is possible – separated for delivery and put together in the bedroom.
The lifespan of a zip and link mattress is longer than that of a normal super king. The centre of the bed has two inside walls from each mattress which makes it more robust and takes longer to give into the saggy middle you see in many old super king options.
Will you feel the zips?
No. The zippers are situated on the sides of the top of the mattress and at the bottom. They are manufactured so that the zippers are just beneath the seam. When together the seams fold over the zipper. You won’t feel the zip but you may be aware of the join of two mattresses. The use of a mattress topper will help to alleviate this.
Are they easy to turn?
Yes! They are easy to rotate as you are only dealing with one single mattress at a time. When you’re turning your zip and link mattresses over, unzip them, flip and rotate each mattress and then zip back together – simple! This makes it far easier to turn them on a regular basis, which is beneficial for the long term care of your pocket spring mattress.
