For importers, choosing a mattress is a technical job. Place an order of mattress,just the material,the sales of factory can make you dizzy.If you don’t believe it, please answer the following question: What is the difference between latex and gel? What is 3D material? Not to mention that it is stitched, even open the product, it is difficult to distinguish between natural latex and artificial latex. The material directly determines the feel of the mattress. Generally speaking, there is no good or bad between different materials, only suitable.
Many importers know that the base for producing mattresses is along the coast of China. For example, one of our US customers imported a large number of mattresses from Foshan, Guangdong. This customer has higher requirements for product quality, but is not willing to give the right price and he is not very familiar with mattress structural inspection. The factory seized this and began to cut corners on manufacturing processes and material costs, which increase the customer’s risk sharply. Therefore, importers still need to know more about product structure and raw materials in order to reduce the risk.
The final use of the mattress is the consumer, so the consumer experience is the most important. Changes in the material of each part of the mattress will affect the actual experience. In mattress structural inspection, it is roughly divided into three parts: fabric, comfort layer and support layer.
When the inspector performed the mattress structural inspection,the fabric was seen at the first time after unpacking. Besides the color pattern, the comfort of the fabric is also very important. According to the temperature sense of the mattress, it can be divided into warm and refreshing. If the consumers are in a country with a long winter, which will be at a bottom temperature for a long time.At this point, if you choose a mattress with a lower temperature,then you don’t know if you warm the mattress or the mattress warm you.Therefore,the top layer of the mattress can be selected from the fluffy coral velvet, which can quickly warm up.
For those who are afraid of heat,breathability is very important and touch the fabric with a refreshing feel will be more suitable.
Besides the fabric, the temperature is decided by the comfort layer. Importers want a warmer effect, usually choose a thicker comfortable layer, if adding a warm material such as wool is better. Or if you need a lower price, you can choose one with higher sponge ratio. Of course, if you want to target people who are afraid of heat, you can choose a thinner and breathable comfort layer.Therefore,in the mattress structural inspection,the measurement of the comfort layer must require the factory to cooperate to disassemble a product. After removing a part of the fabric, the material and thickness of the comfort layer are taken for photos. Or ask third parties to inspect in the middle of the production and take photos directly on the production line to prevent the factory from cutting corners. In the During Production Inspection article, the features of this test method are described in detail.
There is also a soft mattress, which is most often mentioned by netizens in recent years. Mattresses that are added to latex generally have a soft feel that fits the body. For those who are a little thinner, the body has a good tolerance and will not have an uncomfortable sense of oppression.
There are drawbacks and benefits.The weak support is accompanied. There will be some exaggerated sayings on the Internet. Sleeping for a long time will not only cause back pain, but also may cause deformation of the spine.But if you have some well-supported materials with a good proportion of latex, it is suitable for those who are thinner or who are used to soft beds.
The mattress above,adds obvious support for the high-elastic sponge and soft latex in the comfort layer,which complement each other. Of course, the actual comfort level needs to be experienced, but in terms of material matching, such a configuration is reasonable.
If the consumers targeted by the importer is older, then the choice of mattress is still a bit more rigid, which requires the support of the spring must be sufficient.
First, the support force of the whole spring is stronger than that of the independent cylinder. With the spring of the same softness,all the springs work together and the support strength that can be provided will also increase. Secondly, the diameter and diameter of the spring will also affect the support strength. The smaller the diameter is, the thicker the wire diameter and the stronger the support are.
With the design of the support layer, anti-interference has emerged. The anti-interference means that if two people sleep together, if one of the sleeping qualities is not good and always tossing upon the mattress.At this point, if the mattress has better anti-interference, the other one will not be disturbed. When it comes to anti-jamming, the spring of independent cylinder is the best choice. The two people are under stress independent and it is not easy for one change makes all change. Therefore, a good quality product, when one person moves,the other can hardly feel it. Each spring is packed in a separate bag and it is not easy to make a squeaky sound. In the mattress structural inspection,two people are asked to lie down and roll to check if it is anti-interference and no noise, and help the importer to further review the product function.
In short, if you want to buy the most cost-effective mattress with the least money, you must know more about mattress knowledge. It is very important that importers understand from the consumer’s point of view for the functions they need to purchase the mattress and the criteria they choose.So that they can standardize the comparison of products from multiple factories before placing an order,thereby selecting the product with the desired effect. For third-party inspections, it also facilitates the implementation of mattress structural inspection, which can test various functions from the perspective of consumers.
