Sleep products and accessories supplier Malouf, with headquarters in Logan, Utah, is offering University Bed, a line of mattresses and mattress covers with patent-pending wipeable and antimicrobial technology.
The company initially created the products for commercial and hospitality buyers, but an increased customer demand for more durable products led the Malouf sales team to open the line to stores, the company said in a news release. The line includes the Undergrad memory foam mattress, Grad memory foam mattress, 8” vinyl-free mattress protector, and 10” vinyl-free mattress protector.
“These products fill a gap in the market for easy-to-clean mattresses, which are perfect for kids’ rooms and guest rooms,” Eric Holmstead, director of sales, said. “University Bed mattresses have been designed specifically to withstand the wear and tear of a college dormitory and high-traffic commercial spaces, ensuring an impressive level of quality and convenience for end consumers.”
Dan Fuller, renovation housing manager at Utah State University, said: “The University Bed line has been a great addition for on-campus housing. Students and parents have had a heightened awareness of cleanliness due to the pandemic, and these easy-to-clean beds give students peace of mind knowing they have a safe sleeping environment. Plus, the durability is great for our bottom line.”
