., March 25, 2020 – U.S.-based Brooklyn Bedding
has announced it will repurpose its proprietary technology, developed 16 years ago to meet a desperate need in the trucking industry, to produce hospital beds in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.
New hospital mattress features and benefits include:
- A proprietary vinyl cover with creased corner seals to resist liquid permeability
- Dual comfort and support foam layers, including a Tri-Zone convoluted core
- CertiPUR-US certified foams for patient health and safety
- California Prop 60 compliant materials
- Standard as well as non-standard sizes to accommodate all types of bed frames
- On-demand production to alleviate excess inventory
- Roll pack processing that allows for bed-in-a-box delivery direct to hospitals and government agencies in need
Over 16 years ago, Brooklyn Bedding was approached by Knight-Swift Transportation
to develop a unique solution that has provided useful for hospital beds: at the time, truckers were using standard mattresses to attempt to soak up diesel fuel spills in crisis situations. The company developed a proprietary vinyl with creased corner seals for sleeper cab beds, used in conjunction with a cotton cover, that could absorb up to 60 gallons of diesel fuel and mitigate the environmental hazard. That same vinyl cover construction and materials, without the cotton cover, provides the extreme waterproofing features needed by hospitals.
