This is a question we get asked quite frequently here at My Next Mattress.
A zip and link mattress is ultimately two separate mattress that can be zipped together. So, you can either use it as one big mattress, or two individual mattresses. They have many advantages and benefits, especially when it comes to guest bedrooms and homes where maximising space is of the essence.
The linking applies on the base and the zippers on the mattresses. It is extremely simple and easy to use, just think instead of using a zip on your jacket or coat, it’s just a relatively large mattress you’ll be using it on!
The Standard Sizes
There are currently three standard sizes available in the form of zip and link mattresses. There is the king size zip link, which has the dimensions of 5’0 x 6’6 and compromises of 2 x 2’6” x 6’6” beds. The last standard size is the super king zip link, which is 6’0 x 6’6 and includes 2 x 3’0” x 6’6” beds.
Saves Space – The ‘two in one’ is designed to reduce storage space and ultimately improve room turnaround. This also makes it much more convenient when it comes to deciding which room you’re wanting the zip and link mattress in.
Flexible To Use – It’s flexibility is what makes the zip and link mattress so great. We all know the struggle we face when it comes to tackling a mattress up the staircase to get to the designated room. But because very often zip and link mattresses are purchased to replace old, traditional mattresses, the whole process of ‘let’s get it to it’s room’ offers less stress.
Versatility – As well as being extremely cost effective and affordable, zip link mattresses offer a level of versatility which every single customer is looking for. They can easily meet your needs when it comes to sleeping arrangements in rooms. Do you have one guest bed but need two singles because family is staying over? No problem, with a zip link mattress it has you in mind.
Ideal Solution – For sleeping partners with different comfort and weight levels. You don’t have to suffer from poor sleep quality while your partner is having a blissful sleep. Because you technically have 1 mattress, it means that one partner will not disturb the other if they move around at night. This is because the mattresses are only joined at the zip and not the springs. This avoids the ‘energy echo’. The two mattresses can be of different firmness and support to meet your needs and requirements.
Comfort – Zip link mattresses do not compromise on comfort. The zips are placed at the side of the mattress to avoid discomfort. The design therefore maximises comfort when you’re sleeping, whilst maintaining a smart, functional purpose.
