The Background : From Space to Earth
TEMPSMART™ adapts the technology which was originally applied by NASA for use in space suits and gloves to protect astronauts from the extreme fluctuation between the bitter cold and scorching heat. Besides the micro temperature control, the new Slumberland TEMPSMART™ mattress is designed to allow the air to flow in and out of the mattress freely for cool, hygienic and fresher sleep.
How TempSmart™ Technology Works at a Glance
- TempSmart™ mattress cover absorbs excess heat when body is warm.
- TempSmart™ mattress cover releases stored heat when body is cold.
- TempSmart™ technology also allows air to flow freely into and out of the mattress by using high performance convoluted foam as well as highly breathable Spacer border and upholstery.
The features of TempSmart™ technology
- Balances temperature
- Feels cool, fresh to touch
- Absorbs excess heat to limit overheating
- Releases heat to keep you warm
Under the Microscope
TEMPSMART™ microcapsules is applied as a finishing on fabrics or infused into fibers during the manufacturing process of Slumberland TEMPSMART™ material. The microcapsules are microscopic in size: 1,000s fit on a head of a pin (3 million per cm2). Millions of microcapsules absorb excess body heat, store it and release the heat back when needed.
The Laws of Thermodynamics
The laws of thermodynamics illustrate how and why TempSmart™ technology has to work. Excess body heat is absorbed, "charging up" the cooler TempSmart™ material. Seeking thermal equilibrium, heat is distributed throughout the TempSmart™ material. When the body temperature becomes cooler than the TempSmart™ layer, heat cycles back to the body to maintain thermal equilibrium.
Spacer Technology for Perfect Air Ciculation
TempSmart™ SPACER Technology border acts as a breathing layer, combining pressure relief, thermoregulation and moisture management in one high tech fabric that results in ultimate sleeping comfort.
Horse Hair, made purely from natural horse hair and sprayed with natural latex is ideal for distributing pressure over Pocketed Posture Spring without limiting the elasticity point that the springing system provide.
Benefits from Horse Hair
- superb air circulation
- regulate body temperature,
- dissipate moisture
- superb resilience
- improve sleeping comfort
Why Horse Hair?
The human skin is not only a closed surface but a breathing layer of our body. Through pores and our body hair, the temperature of our body is kept under control. Natural materials such as horse hair, lambs wool and cotton are designed to transport the humidity therefore these material go well with our skin, help to evaporate moisture into the air from our skin surface.
