Sofa bed

Cribs bed These are available as guest loan items in hotels and are usually collapsible to save storage space. They should have adequate locking mechanisms to ensure that they dont collapse when an infant or a child is put to sleep in them.

Rollaway zed beds Zed beds get their name from their three-parts folded frame resembling the letter Z. These can be rollaway beds on rollers or casters. They generally have a thin latex-foam mattress that rests on a base of stretched springs attached to a rectangle folding frame. There are better-quality ones available that have interior-spung mattresses.

Sofa bed These provide extra seating by day and a bed by might . The better ones have a slatted wooden base with an interior-sprung mattress the wire-mesh ones may be cheaper but tend to sag in time.

Mattresses Amattressis a large pad for supporting the reclining body, used as or on abed. Mattresses may consist of a quilted or similarly fastened case, usually of heavy cloth, that contains hair, straw, cotton, foam rubber, etc.; a framework of metal springs; or they may be inflatable.

Interior sprung mattresses are of three types:

Open spring mattresses: These have hourglass shaped wire coils sandwiched between wire frames.

Pocket spring mattresses: The spring in these are cylindrical and each is enclosed in a fabric or foam pocket.

Continuous spring mattresses: In these the springs are made from wire that is linked and intertwined in a mesh like pattern. These are ideal for double beds because they compress to the shape of the body. Thus, they are also referred to as Posture springing mattresses.

Latex mattresses These mattresses are made from synthetic rubber that is whipped into foam with a chemical setting agent while in a semi-liquid state and poured into heated moulds. A good foam mattress may be about 10 cm deep and have layers of foam, with the firmest layer at the bottom and the softest at the top. The normal have a right and a wrong side. These mattresses are extremely resilient they regain their original shape rapidly after being lain on, and therefore require no turning.

Solid stuff mattresses These mattresses are made by filling a thick with padding. The padding may be in the foam of the animal hair, cotton, kapon, wool, coir, or flock. They are also absorbent and require frequent turning when in use. They may also require frequent turning when in use. They may also require frequent making as they tend to sag easily.

Plastic mattresses These are made from polyethylene and vinyl foam. They are non-absorbent and resistant to attack by moths and other pests.

Water mattresses These resemble interior-sprung mattresses in appearance. Well designed ones have water-filled cell in the center of the mattress. These cells are covered vinyl-covered urethane foam and the perimeter of the mattress has a row of inner spring coils that are meant to provide support to a person sitting on the edge of the bed.
