Neptune antibacterial mattress cores and cover

Autumn is in full swing and the quieter season is approaching. While the new boating season might have brought with it a list of chores to tackle onboard over winter, one task you shouldn’t forget to add to your list is to check mattresses. Unzip the cover of your mattresses and there’s a good chance you might find mould. Even when not seen immediately by the naked eye, mould and mildew are almost always present. Time for new mattresses? Neptune supplies custom-made mattresses with antibacterial cores and antibacterial ticking.

Mould in the mattress core is caused by the loss of perspiration and other waste products over night, which can cause mould in the mattress cores due to the lack of ventilation under mattresses. This is not only unhygienic, but also unhealthy: fungi are the cause of many health issues such as a runny nose, watery eyes and respiratory tract irritations.

Neptune supplies custom boat mattresses in various qualities that, in combination with our patented slatted base systems which deliver essential ventilation under the mattress, ensure a healthy and comfortable sleeping place on board your yacht. Our mattresses are fitted with Neptune antibacterial mattress covers. As well as this, for optimal protection against bacteria, fungi and viruses, Neptune uses nano silver in all mattress ticking. The environmentally-friendly treatment of the ticking with colloidal silver, also known as silver water, kills unwanted intruders and reduces the spread of bacteria and the formation of fungi in the long term.

Neptune also works with Pantera Nautic™ comfort foam and Vita Talalay® Latex Superior ™. The fire-retardant Pantera Nautic™ is a premium comfort foam that has been treated with an antibacterial agent and is not susceptible to mould, as well as being resistant to dust mites making it ideal for allergy sufferers. Vita Talalay® Latex Superior ™ is a durable, superior latex that, due to its open cell structure, offers optimal ventilation and moisture regulation so that fungi and bacteria do not stand a chance.

Did you know that you spend about 30 per cent of your time on board asleep? We at Neptune believe that’s too much time to experience discomfort. Our sleeping systems have been specially developed to provide optimal comfort and support and are made of the most durable materials.

You are very welcome to try out our different mattress qualities and sleeping systems in our Experience Centres in Zwaagdijk-Oost (The Netherlands) and Palma de Mallorca. It goes without saying, that we strictly adhere to Covid-19 safety guidelines.
