2. Quality of materials

Sleepwell is a major player in the foam mattress segment.

Apart from using these foams, they use pocket springs and latex in their mattresses too.

Duroflex uses PU foam, memory foam, coir, pocket spring, and latex in their mattresses.

Most of their mattresses are made as a combination of these primary materials.

3. Firmness and Comfort

Sleepwell has different innovative comfort levels for their mattresses such as Pro comfort, Spa comfort, Ortho comfort, Hotel comfort, and Celebrity comfort.

The Pro comfort range has 3 mattresses having a firm and medium-firm comfort.

They are made of either only PU foam or a combination of PU foam and pocket springs.

The Spa comfort range has 7 mattresses having a firm and medium-firm comfort.

Resitec foam is a resilient foam or a responsive foam, that provides support to the pressure points of the body.

They also use profiled PU foam, which is ergonomically designed for providing support.

They also use Bonnell springs as an ‘orthopedic solution’ and pocket springs as “enhanced pressure relief’.

The orthopedic mattresses of Duroflex are named ‘Duropedic’.

These mattresses have a layer they call the ‘5-zone orthopedic support layer’, which is made of their own proprietary material.

They also use memory foam as an orthopedic layer in the Duropedic mattresses.

They also use GOLS-certified latex foam for their latex mattresses.

All Sleepwell mattresses are treated with their proprietary Neem Fresche technology for protection against dust mites, allergies, and breathing disorders.

Our view

If you analyze the above information you can easily see that –

  • Both Duroflex and Sleepwell are old mattress brands in the country.
  • Sleepwell uses proprietary materials whereas Durolfex uses standard materials. 
  • The comfort levels named by Sleepwell are more marketing-oriented, whereas Duroflex is more user-oriented.
  • Sleepwell uses its proprietary foam, Bonnell springs, and pocket springs for its orthopedic mattresses whereas Durolfex uses a proprietary material and memory foam for its orthopedic mattresses.
  • Sleepwell has 1 certification only, which is for its anti-allergy and anti-mite treatments. Duroflex has 2 certifications for the quality of materials used for their orthopedic mattresses and latex mattresses.

Is Duroflex mattress good?

Well, I will definitely choose Duroflex over Sleepwell if I am buying an orthopedic mattress because I don’t want an orthopedic mattress made of springs.

Springs are bouncy by nature.

We don’t want to bounce if we have a health issue right?

And Duroflex has certifications for their orthopedic mattresses too which is more reassuring for me.
