Hard Bed is Certified Hard.
Hard Bed is a revolutionary solution in firm support sleeping. Manufactured in the largest, most consistent-quality mattress facility in the world, Hard Bed combines the newest sleep technologies with proven traditional craftsmanship. In fact, Hard Bed is one of the only fully reversible, two-sided mattresses available in Canada.
Your Hard Bed features a layer of 3.4 lb high-resilience (HR) Smart Foam quilted to both the top and bottom fabric panels. Sandwiched between the incredible Smart Foam is an 8" layer of extra-firm foam to provide ever-lasting support.
Everyone knows that mattresses used to last 15 or 20 years. What everyone forgets is that mattresses used to be flippable. This is why Hard Bed has returned to this style. Simply flip your Hard Bed (which will be easier to do after you've toughened-up your back), once every 6 months to maintain incredible support for years to come.
Why no springs? When designing the ultimate in firm beds, springs are simply not desirable. An ultra-firm spring unit ends up causing far too many pressure points, where-as our combination of unique high-resilience Smart Foam and an extra-firm support core ensure that excess pressure points are less of a risk.

Q? Hard Bed is too hard. Can I return it?
No. It's called Hard Bed. Sometimes, life is hard. Please do not order this mattress unless you are wanting an extremely firm mattress.
Q? How does Hard Bed arrive?
Hard Bed is conveniently vacuum-compressed and rolled in a manageable carton. We recommend removing Hard Bed from the carton as it's much easier to lift and move out of the packaging. There is a plastic sleeve around the mattress which prevents it from expanding and unrolling. Simply place where you intend to use Hard Bed, and then carefully cut along the plastic sleeve to open Hard Bed up. Our delivery company will do all of this for you, if we're delivering in our local Calgary & Edmonton store areas.
Any firm, flat, level surface or electric adjustable bed. So long as your box spring isn't sagging, it will work just fine with your Hard Bed mattress. If you're planning to use this mattress on a platform style bed simply ensure your platform has sufficient support such as a solid surface or slats no more than 3" apart. Bowed/curved slats are also fine! However, these slats might make your Hard Bed feel a touch softer.
Warranty & Care Instructions
Your Hard Bed mattress is covered by a 10 year prorated limited warranty. The Mattress & Sleep Company and Healthcare Co. Ltd. will address any covered manufacturers defect at any time during the first 10 years of Hard Bed ownership.
Please rotate your Hard Bed once every 6 months, and flip it over once per year. Consider using a St Dormeir Mattress Protector to ensure your Hard Bed stays hygenic for years to come. St Dormeir protectors also provide superior temperature and humidity regulation to ensure you sleep in the optimal climate conditions!

The Tempur-Pedic had one thing up on the Hard Bed, a longer history of the product and reviews. However, after having spent my last 9 years on an overpriced memory foam/gel combo bed and being greatly disappointed by it's lack of longevity, I had to question whether the higher price tag on the "brand name" would really pay off in the long run.
The Hard Bed won me over for many different reasons.
First, the affordability. It wasn't the cheapest mattress out there but was by no means the most expensive (added bonus, it happened to be on sale when I bought it). I believe you get what you pay for in quality but you can also overpay for quality and the Hard Bed is at the top of its class in quality equalling affordability.
Second, ease of purchase and delivery (not technically a review on the mattress itself but its relevant). The fact that I was able to pick it up from the store, in my VW Beetle, and haul it into the house by myself was highly convenient. The mattress being compressed and rolled up made it super easy to get it in the house and in the bedroom to set it up (I wash I could share pics to show you.)
Third, quality. Not only is this mattress made with high quality products, they are utilized in the most functional way possible. I am not a small person, this is one of the reasons I need a firm mattress. I can lay on this mattress ANYWHERE without it “sucking” me in. I lay on top of the mattress and am supported no matter where I lay. I was particularly impressed this morning when I realized I was laying on the very edge of the mattress with my arm hanging off and the edge wasn’t compressing and causing me to roll off the bed.
Fourth, it’s “old style”. You can and should flip this mattress. To extend the life of anything, you are supposed to rotate and utilize the entire product yet for years we have only been using 50% of our mattresses and expecting 100% quality and life from them. I fully expect to be able to use this mattress for many years longer than any other mattress I have ever had because I can flip it.
I expect to have many, many, many, many excellent nights of sleep on my Hard Bed and highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for the perfect firm mattress.
