Mattress heating and cooling systems supplier Chili Technology, based in Mooresville, N.C., unveiled Chili/Ready inserts at ISPA EXPO 2010 in Charlotte, N.C., in March.
Chili/Ready incorporates the company’s temperature–regulating technology into a 1–inch memory foam layer with dual controls for two sleepers. The insert, which has the capacity to regulate a bed’s sleep surface temperature from 48 to 118 degrees Fahrenheit, can be used in both innerspring and specialty beds. A motor fits under the bed frame.
“The new Chili/Ready insert makes it easy for manufacturers to offer temperature–controlled sleep solutions to their customers,” said Todd Youngblood, Chili Technology president and chief executive officer. “Disrupted sleep is often caused by core body temperature changes, which can wreak havoc on your sleep or your partner’s ability to sleep throughout the night. We are helping solve this problem by allowing consumers to adjust the temperature on each side of the bed so they can sleep better and feel more rested.”
