The Opulence Mattress
YOU WILL NEVER WANT ANYTHING ELSE.
Have you ever stopped and thought about all the features you wish you could have in a product without compromise?
What about going to every extreme to ensure you had the best quality components you could think of?
Well Robert has.
Robert is the proud owner of The Mattress Company. He has been making mattresses since 1982 and knows the ins and outs of the industry and which products truly stand the test of time. Over the course of several years he toyed with the idea of creating the ultimate bed, the bed for himself, the Opulence.
With uncompromising determination he sourced the best components available, ensuring only the best possible component would join Opulence puzzle. The components for the prototype Opulence were sourced and compiled, he had been sleeping on this prototype for two years. As new technology developed, he was able to push the envelope a little bit further.
Today he is finally happy to call this range, The Opulence. In an Opulence mattress you will find cashmere infused fabric treated with Purotex, a probiotic micro-flora that cleans up bed mite allergens and inhibits the development of undesirable bacteria and moulds. Purotex is activated whenever you move on your mattress, removing bad bacteria and neutralizing odours.
Coupled with the beautiful fabric, a layer of Dunlop’s Visco-flex Fusion Gel. Fusion Gel is a temperature neutral product designed to stop hot spots in your bed, allowing you to sleep cool. In both LFK Innerspring and Interactive pocket spring models, Dunlop Opulence ultra-high density foams have been used to ensure the longest possible life without using latex. The mattress he has designed for himself without compromise is now available to the public.
You will never want anything else.

Fabric: To create the finest sleep layer possible, cashmere is used in Opulence fabrics. This fabric is incredibly soft and breathable whilst remaining hard wearing and robust.
Purotex: Purotex is a natural, probiotic micro-flora that cleans up bed mite allergens and inhibits the development of undesirable bacteria and moulds.
Probiotic micro-organisms are introduced during the textile production process. These are selected, friendly bacteria that saturate the bacterial capacity of the textile; their mass presence outnumbers competition and prevents noxious bacteria or pathogens from gaining a foothold in the textile material. The micro-organisms are encapsulated in their spore form (comparable with seeds) and are released by friction between the sleeper’s body and the mattress, whereupon the bacteria germinate. In this process they absorb a lot of moisture. Thanks to the encapsulation, the release of probiotics is controlled and the effect long-lasting. The friendly bacteria grow very rapidly, they multiply x100 in 24 hrs. They deprive dust mites from the food and essential water they need to feel comfortable.
As a favourable side effect, Purotex neutralizes unpleasant odours in the mattress. The population of friendly bacteria is self-regulating; the more space and food (partly digested skin particles, mite excretions, dead bacteria), the quicker the bacteria multiply. If there is lack of space and food, the multiplying stops, 25% of the bacteria revert to spore form and the rest dies in a natural way after 3 to 5 days. Thanks to the daily replenishment with new friendly bacteria the cycle never stops.
The Purotex microflora are natural food grade organisms that are not genetically modified and guaranteed non-toxic. Purotex is all natural!
Dunlop Fusion Gel Visco-Flex Quilt Foam: A Layer of Fusion Gel is quilted directly into the cashmere fabric of the mattress. This layer keeps the surface of the mattress cooler than anything else we produce. You will sleep easy knowing your mattress won’t develop hot spots during the night.
Ultra-Fresh: Ultra-Fresh antimicrobial treatments are recognized world-wide as the standard for antimicrobial protection in foams. Treated foams exhibit excellent antibacterial and antifungal properties and ensure protection from the growth of unwanted microbes.
Studies have shown Ultra-Fresh treatments are also effective in preventing dust mite colonies from becoming established in treated articles. Wherever bacteria, mould, mildew and fungi compromise product performance, Ultra-Fresh will take control. Ultra-Fresh antimicrobial treatments inhibit the growth of bacteria and fungi responsible for creating unpleasant smells and staining in textile and plastic products. By controlling unwanted microbes, Ultra-Fresh antimicrobials help to keep products fresh, hygienic, and odour free.
Dunlop Opulence: Dunlop Opulence is an ultra-high density foam designed for premium bedding and furniture. 163% denser than the industry standard and 38% denser than Dunlop enduro, Opulence foam is almost as dense as high quality soft latex. This makes it extremely durable and designed to last longer than any bedding foam on the market.
Felt Insulators: The age old story of being poked by a spring in the middle of the night is something almost everyone has heard, the idea behind a felt pad is to eliminate the chance of this happening to you, ensuring a great night sleep every night for years to come.
Side Support System: We employ side support systems primarily to prevent any failures and dipping in the side wall of the mattress. Having a side support system in a mattress carries the additional benefit of increasing the overall sleep area by preventing any rolling or bowing of the edge of the mattress, stopping you from rolling out of bed.
Simalfa Glue: Made in Switzerland, Simalfa glue is an odourless, incredibly strong water based two part glue system made with the environment in mind. In the company’s own words “First and foremost we’re an environmental company. Our mission is to assist in eliminating hazardous chemicals that are being used by companies today through the offering of environmental solutions that work. We’re extremely different than the traditional adhesive companies you may come in contact with. We don’t produce or market products that contain any known hazards such as solvents…and we never will. We have strict internal company standards to protect our environment and the people who work with our products. We know of NO other adhesive manufacturer who can state this!” Their incredibly robust and efficient glue, combined with its natural properties has solidified Simalfa as our only mattress adhesive.
Featuring Bekaert Textiles: Bekaert Textiles is the leading specialist in the development and manufacturing of woven and knitted mattress textiles and bed cover materials. All Mattress Company fabrics are made in Australia and produced by Bekaert Australia. All fabrics are Health Guard treated to ensure lasting quality and comfort with anti-dust mite qualities.
Featuring Dunlop Foams: Dunlop has been in the foam industry for over 70 years and is Australia’s leading foam supplier. Employing over 2000 people, Dunlop innovates and strives to produce products of the highest quality. Partnered with Ultra-Fresh and accredited by Good Environmental Choice Australia (GECA), Dunlop foams has solidified itself as The Mattress Company’s sole foam supplier.
LFK Spring: With a dramatically higher spring count than the commercial grade Bonnell spring unit, the LFK unit offers greater support and increased durability. This translates to a higher quality spring unit suitable for a wider range of applications and great for a domestic customers.
Latex: Latex is a highly resilient natural product used for a variety of applications. All Mattress Company latex is 98% pure, containing only 2% binders to hold the latex together. Latex is an incredibly dense product that breaks down very slowly making it an excellent support system. Latex tends to break down at a rate of only 1-2% per year meaning it has an incredibly long life cycle. At face value latex mattresses can seem expensive, but due to the lifespan of the product it can be a great investment. All of our latex mattresses are solid 200mm or 250mm blocks, no fillers, no foams and no springs meaning you have a very natural, well wearing mattress.
Interactive Pocket Spring: Interactive pocket springs are an innovative spring system with two different coil types that are vertically staggered for a particularly smooth absorption of the pressure load. This becomes a dual layer system that gives an incredible amount of support. Interactive pocket springs adapt to your body by adding support in high pressure zones effectively automatically zoning to suit each individual. This means your body gets the support it needs when and where it needs it. Interactive pocket springs have almost 40% more springs than a standard pocket spring, giving this system better support, even further reduced partner disturbance.
Removable Pillow tops: We offer a range of removable pillow tops to achieve varying supports and comforts. Pillow tops are attached by heavy duty YKK zippers, the means when it comes time to flip and rotated your two sided mattress, you are able to remove the pillow top and attach it to the other side of the mattress. This means that the pillow top becomes the wearing part of the mattress. Come the time the pillow top wears out, you are able to purchase another to give your mattress new life. We offer pillow tops made of Visco-flex Memory Foam, Latex and Fusion Gel Visco-flex. All pillow tops carry a 5 year warranty
Visco-flex (Memory Foam): Visco-flex is a very soft but durable foam designed to contour to your body and give a cloud like feeling to your mattress. This can be great for people that like mattresses soft and also people that like mattresses firm by allowing a nice cushiony layer before the primary support of the mattress kicks in. Visco-flex comes in two hardness’s for a wider range of choice and achievable feelings in the mattress.
Latex: Latex is an extremely durable product that offers a firmer level of cushion than Visco-flex. Latex is a great choice for people that want a natural product in their mattress but still want the added comfort of a pillow top. Latex is more supportive than the standard memory foam which can be a good thing for people that like firmer mattresses.
Fusion Gel Visco-flex Memory Foam: Fusion Gel infused memory foam is a new product by Dunlop. Gel particles are impregnated into Visco-flex memory foam to create a temperature neutral foam. Foams have a tendency to heat up above room and body temperature, Gel particles reduce this effect. This means the foam does not heat up above your temperature, so you won’t wake up in a hot spot in the bed in summer. In winter the Fusion Gel will still stay temperature neutral so your mattress will not be cold, but your temperature.
No Tear Handles (LFK Only):
Our handles are heavy duty and designed to last. We attach our handles to the spring unit itself inside the mattress, this means you won’t tear the handles off the fabric on the outside of the mattress so the handles will last as long as your bed. Due to the fact we only attach handles to the spring unit of the mattress, we are only able to fit handles to beds containing the LFK support system.
Zip-Off Wool Mattress Protectors: An additional option for your new mattress is to have an 850gsm removable, washable Australian made wool top. Fixed in the same way as our pillow tops, by a heavy duty YKK zipper, our wool tops are extremely high quality and soft, not scratchy. Having washable wool on your mattress will improve airflow between you and the mattress while protecting against any accidental soiling of the mattress.
