Glideaway Obtains CertiPUR-US Certification for sleepharmony Mattresses

May 25, 2011 - Specialty sleep manufacturer Glideaway® Sleep Products announced that their sleepharmony® memory foam mattress line has earned the CertiPUR-US® certification seal. The company sought certification in response to consumers seeking clearer guidance when shopping for environmentally friendly mattresses. The sleepharmony Bliss, Classic, Renew, Serenity, and Tranquility mattresses will all feature CertiPUR-US approved flexible polyurethane foam materials.

“As more and more consumers become environmentally conscious, the materials used in the products they buy become equally as important,” said Glideaway Executive Vice President of Sales Ron Fredman. “By seeing the CertiPUR-US seal on Glideaway mattresses, environmentally conscious consumers can feel confident knowing that some of the components used to make the sleepharmony collections are not only comfortable but have also passed strict environmental, health and safety standards.”

The CertiPUR-US program is a voluntary testing, analysis and certification program that was developed by members of the global foam industry in response to an increase in substandard imported foams. Items that carry the CertiPUR-US seal contain flexible polyurethane foam products that have been tested and certified by an independent laboratory to be sure they meet the strict standards of the CertiPUR-US program for physical performance, indoor emissions and environmental stewardship.

Mattresses that carry the CertiPUR-US seal may be marketed as providing low emission (VOC’s) for indoor air quality and made without ozone depleting CFCs, PBDE fire retardant, formaldehyde, prohibited phthalates, mercury, lead and heavy metals.

Founded in the 1920s as a furniture retailer in Illinois, Glideaway is a full-service bedding manufacturer and supplier to full-line furniture retailers, specialty sleep shops, and web-based e-tailers.  Their products include a complete line-up of Visco and latex mattresses, power bases, bed frames, day beds and trundle beds, pillows, mattress protection products, headboards and juvenile beds. Based in St. Louis, the company employs more than 140 people in its 120,000 square-foot manufacturing, distribution, and showroom complex
