A good night’s sleep starts with a clear mind and a healthy body. No matter how healthy you are, no amount of healthy eating and exercise can undo the effects of a bad or unsupportive mattress on the body. In addition to causing you to lose valuable sleep, the wrong mattress can result in health problems, such as spinal issues or joint aches as we grow older.
At Advanced Sleep Technologies, we understand that the highest quality products will produce a high‐quality mattress that consumers will love. After months of research we are pleased to announce that we have decided to use Leggett & Platt for our Spring Mattress support.
As a trusted brand in American households for over 130 years, Leggett & Platt uses state‐of‐the‐art technology and progressive thinking to ensure a great night’s sleep. When it comes to quality here are just a few reasons why we chose Leggett & Platt as our partner.
In 1883, two brothers‐in‐law came together to design the coil springs that would come to create the bedrock of mattress technology as we know it today. At the time, Leggett & Platt was already ahead of the game as a company, creating coil systems that supported the full weight of the body without giving way to sagging or depressurization. In 1933, the company developed springs for innerspring mattresses, which combined the support of traditional, conical wire cones with the softness and insular comfort of mattress fabric.
Each Leggett & Platt coil is created from recycled steel, which is melted down and reformed into precise, structured coils that will line the core of each mattress. In addition to surpassing industry standards, L&P has its own rigorous testing systems that each individual spring must pass before going to market.
Leggett & Platt purchased Sterling Steel in 2002. Using technology that revolutionized the mattress industry in the late 1800s, Leggett & Platt continues to be first in its class when it comes to mattress production, technology, and testing criteria. An intensive electrical charging process creates strong, durable steel coils that are built to create years of support without sagging or compressing.
Leggett & Platt’s Comfort Core® technology is built into their innersprings, this creates an ergonomic cradling effect for the body, combined with the sag‐proof, settle‐proof support of Leggett & Platt’s NanoCoils ® and innerspring technologies.
When we were searching for the materials that would create the best spring mattress on the market, we wanted to find an American‐made product that was sustainably produced and trusted by thousands of brands and users across the country. We found that product in Leggett & Platt’s Comfort Core technology.
Our Leggett & Platt mattress product is American‐made in factories that have revived small towns across the Midwest. The process of creating innersprings is also eco‐ friendly. Using recycled steel scraps, a base of raw steel is melted down and made into coils in a Sterling, Illinois factory. After the raw steel is heated and cooled, the material is transferred to a plant in Carthage, Missouri, where it’s spun down into a fine wire. These wires are wrapped in fabric before they take their final shape so that no bumpiness or friction will occur.
Tubes of fabric holding individual coils knowns as “NanoCoils®” will rest near the top portion of our spring mattress. NanoCoils® act as a buffer between the pressure of the body and the strong, solid base of each mattress. In each of our spring mattresses we will include over 1300 NanoCoils® which will form a tight, structured layer of support for extra comfort. The machinery Leggett & Platt uses allows targeted placement for each layer of Innersprings, creating an easily customizable mattress experience for consumers.
The innovators at Leggett & Platt regularly attend summits and keep an eye on new technologies that can help advance their products and create better tests for durability. The company’s commitment to quality led them to build a number of advanced tests to gauge mattress longevity and comfort. These tests are:
- Sonar Measuring System, or Rollator Testing: A technique that allows manufacturers to test
height loss due to compression in each mattress
- ILD Test Machine, or Impact Testing: A system that tests the compression power of each layer
of innerspring technology and evaluates firmness and support.
- Cornell Testing Machine: A machine that uses force to inspect the effect of pressure and
compression on a mattress over time.
At Advanced Sleep Technologies, we are committed to using Leggett & Platt’s rigorous testing to ensure our high‐quality mattress will deliver years of comfort and support. Interested in learning more? Sign up to receive early access to the World’s First Adjustable Mattress Line.
