1. We reccomend you watch the Mattress Asseembly video we have on Youtube. Click the blue link above to watch video.
3. Look for sticker on boxes 2-4. They contain the layres of latex. Put the inner casings on the layers of latex before you put them in the large mattress casing. The inner casing makes handling easier and protects in from tearing.
4. You may notice a light “rubber” scent. If you are sensitive to scents, air out the layers in a well-ventilated space for a day or two before putting them into the casing.
1. Unzip all the inner casings. They are marked “soft”, “medium” and “firm. Turn them inside out and gentely work them over the latex. Repeat this step until all layres of latex have the inner casings on them.
2. Spread out the casing on the platform or foundation; the zipper-stop goes at the head of the bed.
3. Unzip the casing. Make sure the lip is facing down. This is the top of the casing. Put the layres into the bottom of the casing.
4. Lay your base layer (Firm, then Medium, then Soft on the Top) into the casing. Talalay layers can go either side up. Fit the layer/s to the corners of the casing.
TIPS ON FITTING LATEX: We don’t mean to shout, but: DO NOT PULL the latex as it may tear. DO NOT YANK the edges. Shake the latex like a rug to spread it. (To shake: Grasp the edge gently with both hands, lift and drop it in a smooth up-and-down motion, like a wave.) You may need to reposition the first layer 5 – 10 times to line it up along the casing edges. After the first layer is in, grasp the casing edges at several points and tug (the casing, not the latex) to remove any slack in the fabric underneath.
PLEASE NOTE: When you shake a layer out into the casing, it may appear as though the latex is too large to fit. It’s just been slightly stretched out by the shaking and repositioning. Repeat the wave motion multiple times from different spots, working your way around and “aiming” the wave toward the center. This helps the layers compress. The casing’s fit is very snug and tight when the process is done.
4. Lay second and third layers into the casing, remembering which piece goes on which side. Shake and reposition until edges are even with the edges of the layer below.
5. Zip on the top sloooow-ly. Tuck in latex as you go; avoid catching edges in the zipper.
The casing is not washable or dry-cleanable! Use a mattress pad to protect your mattress.
Your mattress needs to “breathe.” Set it on a slatted platform bed. Do not use a boxspring under the mattress.
