How do I clean my SleepSafe® Bed mattress?

We recommend cleaning your SleepSafe® Bed mattress with a mild detergent and water using a soft cloth. An example would be using Dawn® Liquid Dish Detergent and water with a terry cloth. Please avoid any abrasives and solvents.

Can I buy just a mattress?

Yes, as a replacement for a SleepSafe® Bed mattress. We do not recommend using a SleepSafe® Bed mattress for other bed type. Our mattresses are designed and custom sized to fit inside a SleepSafe® Bed and may not be appropriate for other beds. Safety is our number one priority and our mattresses are designed to fits snugly within the wooden bed frame to reduce the chance of burrowing or entrapment.

If your SleepSafe® Bed was manufactured prior to 2009, and you are looking to replace your mattress, the size may be different, please call to confirm the size of the mattress for your bed 866-852-2337.

Do I need special sized sheets for a SleepSafe® Bed?

No. Standard Twin, Full and Queen sized sheets readily available at any department store will fit the appropriate SleepSafe® Bed.

What is the difference between a box spring and a bunkie board in a fixed foundation?

Each SleepSafe® Bed needs some type of foundation for the mattress to rest upon. With the Articulated and Hi Lo foundations, the mattress rests directly on the electric frame. With the Fixed foundation, you have a choice between a box spring or bunkie board for your mattress to lie upon. The only difference is that a bunkie board is 2 inches high and a box spring is 8 inches high.

When the goal is to maximize safety rail height above the mattress you will choose a bunkie board so that the mattress surface can be positioned 6 inches lower within the bed’s foundation. When the goal is to raise the mattress surface as far from the floor as possible, then you should choose a box spring so that the mattress will be positioned 6 inches higher. There is no price or comfort difference, only a height difference.

Is the mattress used on a SleepSafe® Bed waterproof?

No, our mattresses are not waterproof, they are water resistant. Please keep in mind, as with any nylon based material, it is not designed to withstand repeated, long standing fluid. Over time, if fluid is allowed to pool up on the surface it will eventually soak through.

SleepSafe® Beds use CertiPUR-US ® compliant foam products for our mattresses featuring gel technology. This support provides optimized pressure redistribution, rapid heat dissipation, and increases in breath-ability compared to standard foam.

If the mattress surface is subject to excessive fluid, it is highly recommended that you use an additional type of  waterproof or water-resistant protective cover over or around the mattress.
