Amerigon, based in Northfield, Mich., will showcase its Climate Control Sleep System technology at the Interzum Cologne May 25–28 in Cologne, Germany.
The system will available for sale to non–North American mattress manufacturers. It’s based on the same technology used in more than 8 million automotive seats worldwide and is the same thermo–electronic technology used in the YuMe bed that is sold exclusively through Houston–based sleep shop chain Mattress Firm.
The heating and cooling technology employs a low–noise, solid–state heat pump with integrated convection to blow conditioned air through the mattress via proprietary air–distribution methods. The system allows sleeping partners to maintain independent temperature control of their side of the bed.
The Climate Control Sleep System is ideal for warm or cold climates, the company said. Because it creates a microclimate within the bed, it can lead to significant energy savings in home heating and cooling.
The technology also has an “optimized footprint,” making it compatible with innerspring, all–foam and adjustable beds.
