Calm As Mattress
The New Koala Calm As Mattress
Frequently Asked Questions
As long as your bed base has adequate support and ventilation, it'll work with the Koala Mattress. If it's a slat base, the slats should be no more than 7.5cm apart. While posture slats can be used, they can make the mattress feel considerably softer than it actually is, so for the best comfort we recommend that they are straight (flat) slats.
We don't recommend either using the mattress straight on the floor without ventilation underneath as this can lead to moisture build up, or on an adjustable bed as bending or folding the mattress might cause long-term damage to the core or supportive layers.
In selected areas of Sydney and Melbourne we've partnered with Soft Landing, a mattress recycling social enterprise, to remove and recycle your old mattress for a reasonable fee.
Once you've ordered your Koala mattress, we'll send you the details to book your mattress pick up through Soft Landing.
