BedInABox LLC has become the first bedding manufacturer to offer mattresses and bedding products exclusively containing CertiPUR–US certified foams.
The Piney Flats, Tenn.–based company manufacturers and sells mattresses, mattress covers, pillows, and adjustable and platform beds via the Internet.
“We believe CertiPUR–US represents the front runner in the ‘clean foam movement,’ ” says Steve Nice, BedInABox chief executive officer. “By specifying only CertiPUR–US compliant foam, we know that every foam mattress in our line offers the cleanest and best choice for all members of the family.”
The CertiPUR–US certification process examines flexible polyureuthane foam products through a battery of independent laboratory tests and chemical analyses. Compliant products are certified to be manufactured without use of prohibited content such as ozone–depleting CFCs, PBDE fire retardants, lead, mercury and other materials of concern. CertiPUR–US also sets baseline requirements for foam physical performance regarding comfort and durability.
The CertiPUR–US certification program, modeled after the CertiPUR program in Europe, is open to all foam manufacturers. For more information, check www.certipur.us.
