Lippert Components introduces mattress for ‘big and tall’ sleepers

Lippert Components Inc. (LCI), a designer and manufacturer of mattresses, has introduced their latest somnum Sleeper Series mattresses for the heavy truck market. The new somnum Odyssey heavy duty innerspring mattress is designed and built to maximize comfort for “big and tall” sleepers, the company said.


To provide a better night’s rest for the heavier sleeper, the Odyssey was designed with an enhanced high-profile 364-Series innerspring core and a 3-in. high density foam topper. Together these features provide increased durability and stronger support. The springs in the 364-Series feature a high coil count and a strong gauge wire. The somnum Odyssey is topped with a premium soft and breathable quilted knit cover with an extra inch of comfort foam sewn into the quilting. It also offers an insulation pad to promote a quiet night’s sleep and features a supportive 9-in. height.

“We had so many fleet managers ask us if we had a mattress that could support drivers who are 300 pounds or more that we realized there was a real void in the marketplace.” says Mike Padrnos, Business Development Manager at LCI. “After hearing the stories of how these drivers were bottoming out and flattening the generic 4″ and 5″ foam mattresses out there, we knew we could develop and deliver a robust and supportive mattress for these drivers.”

The Odyssey is available in two sizes: 9- x 38- x 80-in. and 9- x 42- x 80-in. and carries a three-year warranty. All somnum mattresses manufactured by Lippert Components are produced in an ISO certified facility and are made in America.
