r4 & r8 Mattress FAQ’s
How do these models compare to the Sleep Number brand models?
Both brands have features unique to their own models. Since both brands provide for individual mattress firmness that can be personalized for each sleep partner and changed as needed over time, both brands will provide you with the vehicle for a great night's sleep! In all their models, Sleep Number continues to use the original vulcanized rubber air chamber design launched in 1981 by Comfortaire. (Now a Select Comfort Company) Our r4 and r8 models utilize the same original vulcanized rubber air chamber design combined with the latest in advanced design technologies. With the original air chamber design, the vulcanized rubber chamber sits at or near the bottom of the mattress to provide customized firmness options. The comfort layers on top of the chamber and mattress cover options are integral to determining the overall comfort level and feel of each model. However, the r4 and r8 models have 8 distinct advantages over all Sleep Number models. (see below)
What makes these models better than Sleep Number models?
Both Sleep Number beds and our r4 and r8 models are designed with vulcanized rubber air chambers to easily personalize your mattress firmness. Sleep Number is the pioneer in educating consumers about the benefits of having a mattress with individual comfort levels that can be changed over time and personalized for each sleep partner as needed. No other national brand offers that advantage. Sleep Number has spent billions of dollars in advertising to educate consumers over the decades. We were a retail partner of theirs since the acquisition of Comfortaire in 2013. We remain grateful for their role in educating the public on sleep. The fact is, all costs of an operation must be factored into the prices charged to the consumer. Since our brand is NOT nationally advertised we can pass those savings on to the consumer and offer an even better product at a lower price.
These are the 8 distinct advantages we offer over Sleep Number:
How can you sell a better product at a lower price than Sleep Number?
Bigger companies have bigger overhead. Short and simple. Also, big companies tend to sit on their laurels while smaller companies tend to innovate. i.e Tesla. Do you want to pay more for just a name, or own the World’s Best Adjustable Bed for less? We are locally owned & operated for over 50 years – we sell for less. Our overhead is low and our product quality is high. We so strongly believe in this fact that should you try us, and buy theirs, we will give you a $100 Visa gift card. (click here for details page)
What makes our mattress covers better than Sleep Number models?
Our r8 mattress cover design is patented and allows the consumer to select from a phase change cooling technology cover or a more natural bamboo based cover. Summer and Winter covers allow for total comfort customization all year long. Bamboo is actually anti-bacterial and ideal for anyone with allergy or sinus conditions as well as those desiring exceptional comfort. When growing in nature, Bamboo does not require pesticides due to its inherent anti-fungal and anti-bacterial qualities. When tested, after a 24-hour period, 100% Bamboo fabric killed 99.8% of the Staphylococcus Aureus bacteria. (Not available on r4 model)
Since they both state “25 Year Warranty” why is the r4 and r8 model warranty better than Sleep Number warranty?
While both have 25-year limited warranty coverage, the r4 and r8 model warranty provides full 3-year non-pro-rata coverage on parts. Although not widely known or understood, Sleep Number models only have the first 2 years full non-pro-rata coverage and begins
pro rata coverage in year three at 20% of replacement cost.
How many actual mattress firmness levels are available?
Our system has 45 individual firmness settings for each sleep partner. Our advanced medical grade firmness control system may be customized in one digit increments. Sleep Number’s mattress firmness system goes up to 100 in increments of five and has 20 actual sleep settings. Sleep Number’s system jumps by five, possibly skipping past your optimal comfort level. Also our advanced system may be controlled by an App on your smart phone or other device or with the included touch screen controllers included for each side. No sharing remotes or searching for your partner’s remote during the night.
