Futon Mattresses Performance Tested for Comfort & Durability

Performance Tested Futon Mattresses

Our futons have been performance tested to verify quality and comfort for years!

All of our cotton-less hi-tech futons have been load tested on the Cornell Testing Machine which assesses the initial nature and resilience of key performance characteristics of any mattress construction. The flat lines our futons received in the test (the orange, pink, green & blue lines in the chart above) mean they maintain their initial levels of comfort, support and shape over time and use. Traditional Cotton & Foam futons -- as the test shows -- grow hard and misshapen over the time and have a dramatic change in their comfort levels.

What does the Cornell Mattress Testing Machine do?
The machine very simply rams a 230 pound weight directly into the mattress 100,000 in a 10 hour period. (Ouch!) This grueling tests measures the construction of the mattress as to its ability to maintain its shape and support firmness -- the original feel of the mattress.

What do the lines mean on the chart?
The lines on the graph are Trend Line Slopes and are used to convey how the mattress holds up during the test. A mattress construction that has a consistent support factor (a mostly horizontal line) indicates energy to maintain itself more effectively than a construction whose trend line is positively or negatively sloped.

  • A mostly flat horizontal line means the mattresses initial feel is "changeless" and it will retain its comfort and shape with use.
  • A steep downhill line means the mattress loses its initial supportive feel and becomes noticeable firmer with use.
  • A steep uphill line means the mattress loses initial supportive feel and becomes noticeable softer with use.
The flat lines our hi-tech futon mattresses received in this test mean that they retain their shape and initial comfort level for years without becoming misshapen and firm like traditional cotton and foam futons.

Who came up with this Cornell test?
The Cornell Mattress Testing Machine and Testing Procedures are the result of a 11 year cooperative effort between the National Association of Bedding Manufacturers, The American Hotel and Motel Association, and The Cornell School of Hotel Administration to establish guidelines of performance characteristics in a mattress sleep system that identifies its ability to withstand 10 years of contract grade (or hard) use.
