All have been designed to optimise the performance of your TEMPUR® mattress. Whatever you decide to do, to ensure you make the right choice here are some points to help you.

 

TEMPUR® mattresses work best

 

With a platform top base
With a slatted base
Not with a spring base

 

  • TEMPUR® mattresses must always be placed on a well-ventilated bed base or frame with feet, castors or legs to allow air to circulate freely, preventing moisture from accumulating
  • Bases with sturdy platform tops or slats (no more than 85mm apart) work best in terms of support and airing, check everything is level before you put your mattress on to use
  • *We do not recommend you place your new TEMPUR® mattress on a spring bed base unless it is under 5 years old and in good condition. It is vital support for your mattress is level and free of dips or hollows which can occur from prior use
  • We also recommend when making up your bed, you do not use a valance between your mattress and chosen bed base as this can restrict air flow to your mattress
