Personal Comfort Smart Bed Features

Interchangeable components

Our premium mattress products allow you to upgrade or downgrade the mattress comfort layers, mattress top cover, mattress center panel or air control unit at any time for the life of the mattress.

Patented Dual-Sided Quilted Mattress Cover

Available on select models - You will find the reversible mattress cover top panel available only at Personal Comfort. The versatility of the patented design provides a sleeping surface with a two-sided option. One side is temperature neutralizing while the other side is a bamboo material. Having the ability to utilize both sides of your reversible top panel helps increase the lifespan of the sleeping surface. We recommend flipping your top panel every six months. You can also easily sanitize your mattress cover top panel as needed by having it professionally dry cleaned.

2-Zone Completely Personalize

When you order a Queen, King or California King sized mattress each person will have the ability to individually personalize their side of the mattress to their desired level of support. The 2-Zone technology means that the left-side and right-side of the mattress are two different zones, and each has independent adjustability.

Replaceable components

Most components of the Personal Comfort Bed are replaceable. This feature gives you the ability to replace a component to make the bed “like new” again. There is no need to purchase another bed ever again.

Upgradable Mattress Design

Most parts and comfort layers of the bed can be replaced or upgraded. (Ex: R11 can be upgraded to an R13). You can also add one of our custom build mattress toppers to change the level of comfort to any Personal Comfort mattress at any time.

Advanced upgrades include the addition of an adjustable bed base. Achieve the best form of sleep and comfort by upgrading to an adjustable bed base with massage. An adjustable bed base allows you adjust and elevate your head and feet at anytime.

Reversible comfort layers

Reversible comfort layers is a feature only available only at Personal Comfort Bed. Available on Rejuvenation series mattresses that have two or more comfort layers, you have the ability to easily change the level of mattress comfort firmness by simply unzipping the cover and reversing comfort layers. No other competitor, including Sleep Number Bed, gives you this level of customizability.

Fire Barrier

Our fire barrier material has been tested and certified to meet California Technical Bulletin #129. We use Integrity30 fire barrier material developed by Ventex, Inc. This same company also manufactures the material used for fire protection on our sister company’s hospital beds. Tests on mattresses using Integrity30 fire barrier have clearly demonstrated a significant reduction in the peak rate of heat release, a measurement of relative safety of the mattress product as measured by full scale fire tests and the NFPA Life Safety Code.

Zippered Center Panel

Our premium mattresses come with a patented zippered center panel mattress cover. This easy to access zippered center panel allows you to add and remove, upgrade, downgrade, and replace comfort layers, giving you the ultimate control over customizing your Personal Comfort Bed to your specific needs.

Stretchable Airlayer™

Personal Comfort mattresses that contain a center panel will have a Stretchable Airlayer™ fabric used to help circulate air within the mattress. This allows the mattress to be breathable inside to out which helps reduce the risk of moisture buildup inside the mattress. This woven stretchable material is custom made blend, designed specifically for the Personal Comfort bed.

Kink Resistant Hose Design

The air hoses that connect our air chambers to our air control unit are steel-reinforced to make them resistant to kinks. This helps maintain airflow between your mattress and your air controller unit. Kink resistant hoses help maintain airflow when you have a power base that raises the head portion of the mattress.

Instant-Connect Hose Adaptors

The Personal Comfort air control unit and air chambers are connected using kink resistant hoses. These hoses have proprietary adaptors that connect them so there is no air loss. Our proprietary connections are called Insta-Connect hose adaptors and they allow you to easily remove the chamber hose from air controller unit hose with the press of a button.

Our Insta-Connect hose adaptors also are built with a one way valve to prevent any air loss when disconnected from the air controller unit. This is great for when you have to move your mattress or you need to use mattress without the air controller unit or without power.

Lock-Tight Rail System

The lock-tight rail system is featured on every Personal Comfort mattress. Having the side and head/foot rails, locked together, helps prevent the internal mattress components from shifting. The lock-tight rail system provides maximum edge and corner support around the perimeter of the mattress, allowing you to sit on the edge of the bed without feeling like you’re going to slide off.

Smart Bed Comfort Layers

Energex™ Copper-Infused Comfort Layer

Energex™ copper-infused comfort layers are exclusive to the Rejuvenation series models. Energex™ material has been specifically designed to energize and slightly soften in response to body heat, which is the key to providing highly adaptive comfort, ease of movement, and excellent pressure-relief.

Copper is a natural antimicrobial that continuously destroys microbes like bacteria, viruses, and fungi). Copper has been shown to be 1,000 times more lethal to the Flu virus than stainless steel, with a contact kill rate of 99.999999% per hour. Copper provides superior thermal conductivity. When copper particles are compressed in the comfort layer, the evenly dispersed particles form super-conductive pathways that allows excess body heat to dissipate faster.

If all of that wasn't impressive enough. The copper infused Energex comfort layer is even more breathable than any of our other comfort layers as you saw earlier in the demonstration.
