Natural Zip and Link Mattress – Ely Mattress

The Ely Mattress is a natural mattress handmade in the UK – but did you know the Ely Mattress can also be ordered as a natural Zip and Link mattress? We have had a few requests for Zip and Link Mattresses in the past year, so we thought we would put the information together to help you decide whether a zip and link Ely mattress is the right choice for you.

First thing’s first, what is a ‘Zip and Link Mattress’?

A zip and link mattress are basically two mattresses zipped together to make one larger, whole mattress, often a super-king size. It allows each mattress to have different feels enabling couples to sleep comfortably when they prefer different tensions of the mattress. It also allows for mattresses to be taken up narrow staircases or hallways.

They started using zip and link mattresses in hotels, where they could easily offer flexibility for guests who wanted single or twin bed options as opposed to a King or Super king. The bed base would come as two separate singles which were put together with a linking bar to create one bed when guests wanted a couple’s room.

Why purchase an Ely Zip and Link Mattress?

It’s great if the standard natural Ely Mattress is perfect for you. But there here are some reasons why some customers prefer to order an Ely zip and link mattress:

  • They share the mattress with a partner, and they prefer different mattress feels
  • The staircase is difficult to manoeuvre a super-king mattress through
  • In Essence, it is two beds in one – so you can even use individual blankets and duvets to avoid being left feeling cold during the night by your partner hogging the covers.
  • If you combine your Ely zip and link mattress with a zip and link base, you could potentially make it into two singles when guests come by.

Can you feel the zips on the mattress?

The zippers are strategically placed so that you will not feel them at all when you lay down to rest. The zippers are often placed on the sides at both the top and bottom of the mattress and for the seam, it is often placed on the edge. So, when they are zipped together, they fold over
