What Is a Coolmax Mattress? Sleep Technology to Keep You Cool

Do you ever wake up hot and sweaty in the middle of the night? If the answer is yes, your mattress could be part of the problem.

Coolmax mattresses are designed specifically with hot sleepers in mind, and could help you to sleep, no matter the season. But what is a Coolmax mattress and how does it work? We explain all to help you on your way to a perfect night’s sleep.

What Is Coolmax?

Coolmax is a special fabric that draws moisture away from the skin, regulating your body temperature and helping you stay cool.

It’s often found in sports clothing as it’s great for keeping you cool and dry, no matter how hot and sweaty you get!

What Is Coolmax Fabric Made Of?

Coolmax is crafted from a blend of polyester fibres that are more breathable than their natural equivalents.

Originally developed in the 1980s by DuPont Textiles, this material is now found in all sorts of products, from socks to bedding, and of course, mattress covers.

How Does It Work?

The structure of the Coolmax fibres draws in moisture, pulling it away from the body through grooves in the threads. This moisture is spread evenly across the surface area of the fabric to accelerate evaporation. This is called capillary action, leading to increased evaporation and quicker drying times.

This moisture wicking property prevents heat build-up better than any natural fibre, helping you to regulate your body temperature without using up excess energy.



Benefits Of Coolmax Fabric

So, what benefits come with this innovative material?

  • It’s lightweight
  • Soft skin feel
  • Keeps you feeling cool and dry
  • Fast drying
  • Durable

Do Coolmax Mattress Covers Work?

Yes! The Coolmax technology has many benefits when it comes to sleep. Here’s how it could improve yours;

Fast Drying

With the human body releasing as much as 1 litre of sweat per night, it’s no wonder that some of us need some help staying fresh. That’s where Coolmax can help. Dispersing moisture and helping your mattress cover dry faster results in a cooler, fresher sleeping environment.

Temperature Regulating

Temperature regulation isn’t just important during the summer months. Removing excess moisture from the skin is also helpful for preventing chills in the Winter. No matter the temperature outside, you’ll remain a comfortable temperature for sleeping with Coolmax.

How Do You Clean A Coolmax Mattress Cover?

One of the best things about Coolmax covers is that they’re super easy to care for. All of the Coolmax covers on our website are easily removable and washable at 30 degrees.

The fast-drying nature of Coolmax helps protect the cover from wrinkles or fading and speeds up the laundry process too!

If you’re worried about inevitable spills and stains, we always recommend using a mattress protector to keep your mattress looking and feeling new for longer.
