Commercially launched into the UK domestic market in 2006, Ergoflex boasts over 13 years of mattress manufacturing and selling experience. The brand pioneered a number of build variations and solutions for mattresses, including affordability in the memory foam mattresses sector, compression packing, vacuum-sealing, and mattress boxing. In June 2019, Ergoflex 5G was acknowledged as one of the top ten mattresses in the UK by “Which?” – The UK’s leading consumer advice portal.
Sizes & Pricing
Ergoflex was the first to start selling mattresses directly to consumers online, thus lowering the end-price significantly. The mattress is available in six different sizes – Single, Double, Euro Double, King, Euro King, and Super King. All products are available for a free, 30-night trial and come with free delivery and return policy. The warranty length is ten years, which is the common standard in modern, top-end mattresses category. There is also a 0% finance option available starting from £25/monthly.
Ergoflex 5G consists of four layers. Here are the details for each:
Protective Inner Cover
The inner cover rests just below the outer cover and protects the main layers of the mattress from physical damage, dust mites and insects.
HD Visco-elastic 5G Memory Foam
The 9cm thick, high-density Visco-elastic memory foam provides excellent support and pressure point relief. The ergonomic design and orthopaedic elements work together to relieve pressure while also dispersing the heat. The spherical-shaped open cells design allows for contouring to the sleepers’ body shape and eliminate motion transfer, making it an excellent choice for couples.
Cool-sleep Airflow System
Ergoflex 5G was specifically designed to grant excellent temperature regulation. The main cooling system is positioned exactly in the middle and is represented by a 5cm cool-sleep airflow layer. Its egg carton shape allows for increased airflow and heat dispersion, further enhanced by the Visco-elastic memory foam above. The secret lies in the new generation of memory foams that disperse the heat much more effectively compared to older versions. Finally, the cooling process is boosted by the design of the TENCEL cover, which features 3D mesh panels that prevent heat retention.
High Resilience Impact-resistant Foundation
The foundation base is 9cm thick and primarily serves as weighted support for all upper layers and enhances longevity. It is also responsible for distributing support evenly across the whole mattress surface, ensuring that sleepers will feel the same regardless of their preferred sleeping positions.
Every Ergoflex 5G mattress arrives encased in a tailored TENCEL cover. TENCEL is a botanical material, which is entirely natural and sustainable. It’s most robust properties are moisture-wicking and breathability that is on-par with (and even higher than) natural cotton. This enhances the cooling system of the mattress and keeps sleepers dry even during the hottest summer days. Moreover, thanks to its cellular fibre construction design, it has natural anti-bacterial properties
The cover is very sturdy and durable while being silky and soft to the touch. The cover is removable and washable and should be machine-washed at 30°.
Firmness, Feel & Support
Lying down on the mattress feels soft and cosy, although the firmness levels may be considered too high for some customers. Generally, orthopaedic mattresses need to be firmer to offer pressure point relief, and Ergoflex 5G is no exception. Sleepers under 30-35 years may find it too firm for their liking.
The product offers exceptional motion cancellation thanks to its design and memory foam properties, making it an ideal choice for couples. Furthermore, the sinkage and responsiveness of the mattress are rather good compared to other mattresses, which will positively affect sex life. The mattress cover feels very soft and cool, yet is highly durable and sturdy. It is made of natural and hypoallergenic materials. Finally, Ergoflex has high indentation load deflection rating (ILD), which is used to measure the sinkage of the mattress and is CertiPur-US & OKEO-TEX 100 certified.
Purchase & Delivery Process
The process is extremely straightforward. Customers need to pick their desired size and firmness level before the checkout, and either pay with a card or apply for a 0% financing. All the information is conveniently laid out on the pricing page of the brand’s website. Each mattress features free delivery and returns, and a free, 30-night free trial.
