Lippert Components Inc. introduced its latest somnum Sleeper Series mattresses designed to promote optimum comfort and support for commercial truck drivers. The newest somnum mattress is the Discovery, a 10-in. latex foam mattress constructed with a combination core. It pairs a thick polymer, spring base core, with a natural latex upper core. The Indura Spring polymer base provides all the support and durability of a steel coil innerspring mattress without the extra weight, the company explained.
Announced during the 2018 Technology and Maintenance Council Annual Meeting and Transportation Technology Exhibit taking place this week in Atlanta, The Discovery is lightweight, eco-friendly and adds a durable, yet breathable cushioning solution. The 3-in. natural latex upper core delivers improved cushioning for pressure points like hips and shoulders, allowing for a comfortable and restful night’s sleep. The Discovery’s Euro-top construction comes complete with somnum’s soft knit cover, and an extra inch of quilted foam is sewn in to the cover. The Discovery latex foam mattress is available in multiple sizes offering a premium sleep solution for drivers of most makes and models.
“A comfortable mattress is a relatively small investment to a truck’s sleeper,” said Mike Padrnos, Business Development Manager at LCI. “A quality bunk mattress may entice a driver to join your company, stay with your company and might deter them from leaving. It’s certainly an important factor for drivers who spend 200+ nights on the road every year.”
LCI is currently an OEM and aftermarket supplier of windows, vents, windshields and door latch/handle components to the heavy truck, school bus and emergency vehicle markets as well as a Tier 2 supplier of slides, tracks and tilt mechanisms to heavy truck and commerical seating manufacturers.
