What is a Zip and Link mattress?

A zip and link mattress is a type of mattress that consists of two separate mattresses that can be zipped together to create a larger bed. They are two mattresses of the same size, such as two single mattresses or two double mattresses that are connected with a zip. When zipped together, they create a larger mattress that can be used as a king size or super king size bed. 


What are the benefits of a Zip and Link mattress?

There are several benefits to zip and link mattresses, including:

  1. Customisability: A zip and link mattress allows for customisation of firmness and support levels on each side of the bed, which is particularly useful for couples with different preferences.

  2. Convenience: The ability to easily separate the mattress into two smaller ones makes it easier to move and maneuver, especially in tight spaces like narrow staircases or small bedrooms.

  3. Hygiene: A zip and link mattress allows for easier cleaning and maintenance, as each half can be removed and cleaned separately.

  4. Versatility: A zip and link mattress is versatile and can be used in a variety of settings, including guest rooms, hotels, and vacation rentals, where the ability to customise the bed for different guests is important.

  5. Cost-effectiveness: A zip and link mattress can be more cost-effective than purchasing two separate mattresses, especially when purchased in bulk for commercial use.


Can you feel the zip on a Zip and Link mattress?

It depends on the quality of the mattress and the type of zipper used. A high-quality zip and link mattress will typically have a zipper that is designed to be hidden or covered by a layer of fabric, which helps to prevent any discomfort or irritation caused by the zipper. In most cases, you should not be able to feel the zip on a well-made zip and link mattress.

Who should buy Zip and Link mattresses?

Zip and link mattresses are a good option for a wide range of people, including:

  1. Couples with different sleeping preferences: A zip and link mattress can be customized to provide different levels of support and firmness on each side of the bed, making it an ideal choice for couples who have different sleeping preferences.

  2. Guest rooms: Zip and link mattresses are a great choice for guest rooms, as they allow hosts to easily configure the bed to suit the needs of different guests.

  3. Hotels and vacation rentals: Many hotels and vacation rentals use zip and link mattresses to provide guests with a customizable sleeping experience.

  4. People who move frequently: A zip and link mattress is easy to move and transport, making it a good option for people who move frequently or those who live in small apartments or houses.

  5. Those who want versatility: Zip and link mattresses can be used in a variety of settings, making them a versatile choice for those who want a bed that can be easily customised and adapted to different situations.
