Is it ok to leave Sleep Republic mattress standing on its side for around 24hrs or will it be damaged?

Hi John, No problems with leaving the mattress on its side for 24hrs. The foam & Fabric materials may flex a bit but will flatten out once its put down correctly.

Hi
My question is in relation to smell. I purchase a boxed mattress very similar to your product. The same experience as I am hearing from your reviews.... next day delivery, great customer service, comfort etc. BUT the smell has been traumatic. I have had to put the foam parts out on the deck for the last 5 days and still the smell is overwhelming. I am waking up with the taste of the smell in my mouth as well as a sore throat. I believe that this is an individual experience as I must be so sensitive to the smell and the materials used WHICH is why it is important for me to know if your mattresses have a smell ( a toxic smell even though the material are tested etc and classed as non toxic at all)
Please give me A true response as do not want to waste my time or your time.
Look forward to your reply
Regards
Marl

Hi Marl,
I have purchased two Sleep Republic mattresses, and they have only had a “brand new” smell for the first few hours. I recall the instructions being to leave the mattress untouched for a day once opened, which I did, and I’ve not had any smell issues.
Before responding to your question I checked with two of my friends that have also purchased Sleep Republic mattresses after my recommendation, and neither recall any issues with smell beyond the very initial opening of the mattress bag & setup.

Hi Marlene,
All Sleep Republic mattresses are aired in a sealed off dry room for 14 days before getting compress packed in the box. This process reduces the new smell that some materials like foam may have and allows for the water-based bonding agents that holds the comfort layers in place to dry properly.
We have not had any complaints from customers about strong toxic smells coming from the mattress.
If you have any further questions please feel free to email us at info@sleeprepublic.com.au.

We are looking for a firm queen size mattress, our actual one was supposed to be firm but not any longer after two years. Our concern is about the top mattress as after reading the reviews from SR looks like that we will could have the same issue. Do you have the mattress that we are looking for? Thanks, Ana.

Hi Ana, This mattress is definitely more of a medium feel, not a firm feel (I recently was looking for a mattress for our camper trailer and tried a few at Fantastic Furniture that were listed as "Firm" feel and they were definitely firmer than ours.) I don't feel that the Sleep Republic mattress will be firm enough for you based on your question (Sorry)

Sleep Republic
Sleep RepublicSleep Republic

Hi Ana,
Feel is a tricky subject to discuss as is it highly subjective. What one person may describe as firm, someone else may well describe as medium. Having said that when placing the Sleep Republic mattress on the traditional Soft-Medium-Firm scale, we'd place it closest to being a medium feel mattress. Hope this helps!

What is the maximum weight that your SR King size mattress will support? (Singularly on each side)
Is it wise to rotate if both partners weights are extremely different?

1 answer
Sleep Republic
Sleep RepublicSleep Republic

Hi Ena,
Our King, Queen and Double mattresses are tested to a combined occupant weight of 250Kg, 150Kg per side.
We recommend with all mattresses rotating them regularly and if there is a large weight differential this could be done every few weeks to even out wear.
What may be evident with any mattress having foam in the pillow top, or a foam core, is that with more weight there will be more body impression visible. This is a natural outcome of the physics and the fact that some areas of the mattress get very little use compared to others.

How frequently is turning the mattress recommended?

Sleep RepublicSleep Republic

Hi,
The King box is 35x35x188cm and weighs approx 60Kg.
Rotating the mattress (head to foot) is a good idea every 2-3 months to even out wear and prolong mattress life.

Hi Monica,
We don't have showrooms, we have found that it is simply not possible to tell what a mattress is like to sleep on in just a few minutes on a showroom floor.
Instead we offer our 100 night risk free trial. At any point during your first 100 nights on the mattress, if you aren't satisfied you can contact us to request a return. We will arrange for the Salvos to collect your mattress and fully refund your money, no hidden fees or costs! This way you get more than 5 minutes to decide whether a Sleep Republic mattress is right for you

Hi there,
Most reputable brands' fitted sheet accomodate a mattress depth of up to 40cm, their flat sheet having measurements of approximately 285cm x 260cm. These standard sizings will fit a Sleep Republic Mattress. Our fitted bamboo sheet sets are the perfect partners to a Sleep Republic Mattress!

Hi Sam, we recommend straight slat bases for our mattress and for pocket springs generally. You may find our Blog article on our site 'What Base to use with your pocket spring mattress informative.

I am thinking of purchasing this mattress for my 84 year old mum. She has currently a king single adjustable bed. Will this mattress be OK on it. Also she claims that no mattress feels soft enough for her but after reading reviews this may just suit. The 100 day trial sounds perfect.

Hi, we have found our mattress to be extremely soft and comfortable, but ours in on a wooden slat base. It's hard to say whether it would still feel the same on top of another mattress. It's definitely worth trying though, because of the trial period, and the ease of having it delivered to your door. You can always try putting a feather or other padded mattress cover to make it even softer. Good luck!

Sleep Republic
Sleep RepublicSleep Republic

Hi Sue,
With the pillow top layer designed for maximum comfort we are sure your mum would find the mattress feel suitable, allowing appropriate give above the core support pocket springs.
Because of our high spring count compared to a standard mattress, while it can be used on an adjustable base we recommend that it is used with low angles of elevation - raising the head/feet by no more than 20cm. As manufacturers what we have found with more extreme elevation (e.g. raising the back to angles of 45 degrees) is that over time the pocket springs at the 'bend point' can be damaged.
The 100 night return policy is perfect for anyone to make sure the mattress suits them, no questions - no quibbles, all your money back.
Hope this helps.

HI,
Currently down to a sleep republic or a 624 mattress in my bed hunt. I was hoping you could let me know if the below bed frame would be suitable? Also is there any kind of return shipping fee for regional QLD?

Hi There, The base looks as if it would be fine to use with the Sleep Republic mattress. We would only suggest that you check with the retailer regarding the maximum weight recommendation, as the Sleep Republic mattress weighs approximately 50kg, which is considerably heavier than a foam mattress- a small price to pay for quality! :) Regarding returns, we don’t charge any pickup or transport costs on returns. Hope that helps! -SR Team

I am strongly considering buying a SR mattress over the other brands. One question about your memory foam - is it infused with cooling gel? If not, will you be introducing it to your memory foam? This would make this a fantastic mattress and alleviate most over heating problems :-)

Hi Shelly,
Our memory foam is gel infused. The addition of gel helps with heat dispersal and in conjunction with the pocket spring core and the ventilation channels in the latex, is designed to give a healthier sleep environment.

Hi,
I can see that you recommend straight slats (as do most other mattress brands I’ve looked at) but I can’t see where to buy them anywhere. I have an Ikea bed, they don’t seem to do straight slats for their beds and I haven’t found anywhere that sells them separately. I know it’s not something you sell but I’m hoping based on your other helpful comments that you can provide some advice? Thanks, Megan

Yes your right ikea and some of the other furniture shops sell the posture slats only.. I found a great bed at wow furniture that has flat slats and they also have some at pine discount furniture and most wood beds have flat slats

Hi Megan. Can you tell me where you're located and we'll do some research for you. We will have our own bases for sale early in the New Year but you may not be able to wait till then.

Thank you both. I really like the design of my Ikea bed so am keen to keep that frame and just change the slats. It’s finding them to buy as standalone that I’ve found difficult - which strikes me as odd as presumably the queen size is standard across frames. I’m located in Sydney metro (Wollstonecraft). Thanks!
