Posted November 05, 2018 12:38:36As you might have heard by now, the cost of building a fiber mattress is plummeting, thanks to technology that can cut the amount of time it takes to build the mattress by up to 80 per cent.
Fiber mattresses aren’t just cheap, they’re also easy to build, making them ideal for a range of different lifestyles.
A new study conducted by the University of Queensland and published in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, has found that while fiber mattresses have been around for over 100 years, the technology to build them has evolved over the past decade.
“Fiber is a very cheap material,” said study author Dr Paul McDonough, who is an assistant professor in the Department of Occupation and Environmental Health at the University.
“If you have a problem with a product, you can buy the best one and it’ll work well for a long time.”
But with a new technology, you’re getting to a point where the best product can be cheaper and you can also get a better performance.
“So, we’ve been trying to develop a new process to make the best material for a very affordable price.”‘
Fiber will keep us warm’The research used a simple model to determine the effect of fiber on the durability of a mattress.
It found that, over a 100-year period, fiber will keep you warm at about the same level as plastic, which is a high-end material.
“For a high end product, it would be a pretty strong material, but for a home or office, it might be a lot weaker than other materials,” Dr McDonogh said.
“What we’re finding is that there’s actually more of an improvement over time.”
A mattress made from a fiber-based material will last longer than a mattress made from plastic, for example, if the fiber is removed.
“The idea is that if you want to get a more durable mattress, you need to get rid of the other materials in your house, because that’s the most expensive,” Dr McNaught said.
He said the material is also a better choice for use in hot climates, where heat is needed.
“It’s also better for the environment because it’s not going to get any carbon emissions,” Dr McFadwell said.
For the study, Dr McNaught and his team compared the lifespan of a variety of materials that were used in the construction of a range a hundred different mattresses.
“We had all kinds of materials,” he said.
