If you’ve visited a mattress store recently looking for a new mattress, chances are you’ve seen gel mattress options. But what are they? And is a gel mattress right for you? Here’s the scoop.
What are Calgary Gel Mattresses?
Gel mattresses include a layer of gel in the mattress. There are three main types of construction:
- Gel-infused foam – Small flecks of gel are mixed into a layer of foam.
- Collapsible column – Collapsible gel columns make up a layer of the Calgary mattress. Vertical, thin walls of gel form an interconnected pattern that provides optimal support.
- Solid gel layer – A solid layer of gel, usually less than 1 inch thick, is placed at or near the top of the mattress.
Benefits of Gel Mattresses at Mattress Stores
Gel mattresses were designed to provide cooling relief for people who sleep too hot, particularly on memory foam. Although the gel isn’t actually cooler than other materials in a Calgary mattress, it feels cooler. This is because gel is a conductor and acts to pull excess heat away from your body. The ability of gel to stretch and squish, then return to its original shape makes it a great choice for pressure relief and shock absorption. Gel is also one of the most durable materials used in mattress construction.
Is a Gel Mattress Right for You?
People who tend to sleep hot, but appreciate the comfort and support of foam, should consider a gel mattress. Before deciding if a mattress is right for you, visit a mattress store to try one out for twenty or thirty minutes. This gives you a good idea of how comfortable a gel mattress is for you.
