TEMPUR is a brand with long standing in the mattress industry. What makes Tempur stand out is their less than ordinary memory foam. Tempur-Pedic mattresses are made with unique and specialist pressure relief material which was originally created by NASA. This material is able to absorb the G-Force of astronauts traveling into space which has since been perfected by Tempur for sleep. The moment you lay down on a Tempur mattress the Tempur-Pedic mattress will respond to your body's natural shape, weight and also temperature with nearly twice the pressure relief of any other brand.
Tempur, the company, was formed in the late 80’s, however, the products that they sell today were not available to the public until later, in 1991. This was after the product's key ingredient, memory foam, was perfected by scientists to become the memory foam filling that many use today. Tempur was first commissioned to work with NASA's research in order to develop materials that would cushion aircraft seats due to the long hours on which astronauts would be in place upon them.
After the initial NASA success and the first products rolling off the lines in 1991, the success grew at an incredible rate to what you see today. At present, we have over 96 different countries selling Tempur products to customers, a product that has not lost it’s key characteristics of quality and price point in all the time since it’s initial creation.
Tempur now enjoys a partnership with Sealy, another veteran of the mattress industry. The joint forces at play allow for some clever tech to help ensure you get the great nights sleep that you deserve.
Tempur® mattresses are famous for the memory foam part of mattresses, but that isn’t all that goes into a mattress, there would be no support at all if this were the case, as a result, the production of a good mattress requires multiple different parts to work well together randing from reflex foam, traditional spring through to pocket spring. Most recently the vast majority of Tempur mattresses utilise the pocket spring model. This is beneficial for the customer as pocket spring happens to be one of the best support systems available for a mattress, giving the end user thousands of springs working together but separate to adjust tension to different areas of pressure without the risk of the springs moving about too much in the mattress.
The short answer is yes, Tempur mattresses are extremely good mattresses that stand the test of time and impress in the reviews time and time again, while their costs are typically on the higher end, it’s hard to argue with millions of customers and the ones we’ve heard from in the reviews and products below, all largely say the same thing...they love it.
Tempur mattresses typically start at around £1000 and go upward to £3000 depending on specifications and sizing. These are definitely at the higher end of our offerings, but for good reason, lifespan is typically pegged at close to a decade with long 10 year span warranty often included as standard.
