A sofa bed consists of three main elements: the pillow, the mattress and the metal frame. The metal frame determines the physical strength of the furniture. Pillow determines the comfort; and the mattress determines the durability as well as the stability. Behind all sofa beds, the mattress makes up the bulk of the furniture. They are available in different shapes, sizes and functions.
Common sizes of mattress
Depending on the size of the sofa, the size of the mattress varies. Since there is a standard for the size of the sofa, the size of the mattress also maintains a standard. The various standard dimensions are 52 "× 72", 54 "× 72", 58 "× 72" and 60 "× 72". The average mattress thickness is about 10 cm. With a pocket coil mattress, the thickness can even be doubled. Only the mattress is unfolded to make a bed out of the sofa, and then folded back.
Production of the mattress
The production of the sofa bed mattress is a delicate task because the proper productivity of the furniture depends entirely on it. The mattress makes the body of the sofa. It is the main element of the sofa, which determines the comfort and balance for the user. These are made by quilting or attaching similar fabrics such as cotton, straw, rubber, etc. The main motto is to provide a lightweight, durable and customer-oriented mattress.
Frame of the mattress
When the mattress is made, it becomes necessary that filled materials be supported by a scaffold. These frameworks can be of different types. It can be based on springs, foams or pocket coils. Among these three types, the pocket coil based mattress is the newly defined version of the spring coil. It is of the highest quality and offers better comfort and longer life.
Overall, in choosing the type of sofa bed mattress, one must determine the shape, the manufacturing mechanism, and the type of scaffolding. Each type of mattress has its own function. Although the pocket coil mattress is an advanced version, the repair requires special skills while other innerspring or foam mattresses can be easily repaired.
