When you purchase an Axel Bloom Bed System, you rest well knowing that your bed has been made using the highest manufacturing standards.
Our manufacturer and suppliers have been certified by many of the most re- spected European quality standards authorities, and have met stringent requirements for environmental safety. The materials we use are selected because of their superior performance for sleep. Healthy sleep is achieved through stressless body support and constant airflow for body temperature comfort. In addition, moisture wick- ing materials foster a clean, hygienic environment to minimize odors, and prevent dust mites and bacterial growth.
The following list of materials and quality standards are representative of Axel Bloom’s commitment to the latest advanced technologies for our products.
Medically Tested Label
Products with this logo have been rigorously tested to the highest standards of modern chemical analysis and guaranteed to be bio compatible.The basis of this demanding test is the toughest known skin-tolerance standard, originally developed as a method of testing medical devices.
Oeko-Tex Standard 100
Oeko-Tex Standard 100 is a globally uniform ecological safety test for textile products, performed by independent labs around the world. This scientific safety evaluation provides an objective analysis of pollutants of concern to human health and provides scientifically based upper bound values. Only textiles which meet strict safety standards receive the “Confidence in Textiles” seal of quality.
LGA QualiTest GS Safety Test
The LGA GS (Geprüfte Sicherheit - Safety Tested) seal is found on safety certified products that are periodically monitored by the independent company LGA Qualitest GmbH. LGA monitors our products and facilities for ergonomic design, quality control, environmental protection, industrial safety management systems, strict pollution/contaminate controls, and service friendliness.
CertiPUR® Foam Standard
CertiPUR® is a voluntary standard to advance the safety, health and environmental (SHE) performance of flexible polyurethane foams used in bedding and upholstered furniture. Manufacturers who comply with CertiPUR®’s far-ranging, but clear and objective SHE standards are prohibited from the use of certain substances in the manufacture of foam, taking into account existing standards and scientific stud- ies. Compliance is subject to audit by an independent laboratory and satisfactory results of random spot checks.
Tencel Mattress and Pillow Covers
Tencel is a high-tech silky nano-fiber made from natural renewable wood pulp, made using a particularly environmentally friendly manufacturing process. Tencel is skin-friendly, breathable and easy to maintain, has a high strength and is thus especially suitable for mattress and pillow covers. Tencel wicks away moisture from the skin and transports it rapidly to the surface to evaporate. To read more about the unique characteristics of Tencel, go to www.tencel.at.
Kaltschaum - Cold Foam Mattresses
Cold Foam (Kaltschaum) has an irregular cell structure that exhibits inherent high elasticity and good air circulation, making it an ideal material for a comfortable, resilient mattress. The antibacterial and hypo allergenic Kaltschaum allows unimpeded air circulation. The cell walls of the foam are opened by crushing rollers, resulting in a porous, flexible nuclear structure with high air permeability. Pure water vapor is used as the propellant for manufacture and the mattress is therefore odorless. Using CFC- free production creates environmentally safe foam that can be recycled.
Berlin Hybrid Mattresses with Individual Pocket Springs
In the Berlin hybrid mattress, technology and advanced foam are integrated to make a robust yet yielding and breathable structure. It is our most complicated and thickest mattress, and was designed for the German market. In the center of the mattress, individual cylinder springs are inserted into small cloth pouches and sewn at their contact points. By eliminating contact between individual springs, even the slightest noise is eliminated. The point elastic suspension allows each spring to flex independently and perfectly adapt to individual body shape, providing a high level of comfort and support. The spring core is surrounded by a high-quality, ridged cold foam pad with cool, high-airflow properties to provide a perfect sleeping climate.
Mattresses with EMC Foam
EMC, or Ergonomics Mit (with) Comfort, is one of the highest quality products using the Cold Foam process. It combines the advantages of all known sleeping materials in the most ideal way to provide a perfect sleep experience. The high point-elasticity of EMC supports and relieves the spinal column, and the excellent suspension characteristics guarantee custom pressure relief in any sleeping position. Owing to the porous cell structure with high air permeability, EMC promotes a breathable sleeping environment with excellent moisture and thermal regulation. EMC is produced using pure water vapor rather than CFCs, and is therefore odorless and more environmentally sound. The material is subject to specific quality controls, is antibacterial, washable, and can be disinfected. The special advantage: the high density of EMC foam prevents premature wear and provides a long usable life. EMC is recyclable.
