Aftermarket supplier Minimizer introduced a mattress specified for professional, over-the-road truck drivers.
Its Long Haul Series Mattress is made using 100% natural, organic latex foam that offers breathability and buoyancy, regulating body temperature while asleep and reacting instantly to sleeping position changes, according to the company. It comes with a lifetime guarantee.
“My engineers researched mattresses for over a year and found a big gap with what’s available in a home mattress versus a truck mattress,” Minimizer CEO Craig Kruckeberg said in a statement. “It shouldn’t be like that. Why would truck drivers be expected to sleep on something inferior to what the rest of the world has available?”
The Minimizer mattress also offers dual comfort, with a soft side for side sleepers and a firm side for stomach and back sleepers, according to the company.
The Minimizer mattress is also naturally antibacterial and hypoallergenic, meaning drivers will not find mold, mildew, bacteria or dust mites living in their mattress. That can improve the quality of sleep, according to the company, which said quotes were available on its website.
Blooming Prairie, Minn.-based Minimizer is a unit of Kruckeberg Industries.
