Description:
BEDDING SYSTEM, KIT AND METHOD

TECHNICAL FIELD

[0001] The present disclosure generally relates to bedding, and more particularly to bedding systems that are modular and configured to be personalized based on comfort choices and that includes individual components that can be upgraded and/or replaced.

BACKGROUND

[0002] Sleep is critical for people to feel and perform their best, in every aspect of their lives. Sleep is an essential path to better health and reaching personal goals. Indeed, sleep affects everything from the ability to commit new information to memory to weight gain. It is therefore essential for people to use bedding that is comfortable in order to achieve restful sleep.

[0003] Two popular mattress choices currently available are spring mattresses and foam mattresses. However, because foam mattresses consist of a foam, such as, for example, memory foam, such foam mattresses are typically not sturdy enough to provide proper support to a sleeper’s body. Foam mattresses also lack the ability to clean within the foam mattress or replace components of the foam mattress over time. For example, if the sleeper’s desired comfort choice changes over time, he or she will be required to purchase a completely new foam mattress to accommodate the user’s new comfort choice. Spring mattresses are typically pre assembled and are shipped to a destination as freight due to the size of the spring mattress. That is, most spring mattresses cannot be shipped by ground delivery because the spring mattresses each exceed the size permitted for ground delivery. Moreover, because spring mattresses are typically pre-assembled, spring mattresses lack the ability to clean within the spring mattress or replace components of the spring mattress over time. For example, if the springs of the spring mattress wear out, the sleeper will be required to purchase a completely new spring mattress. This disclosure describes an improvement over these prior art technologies.

SUMMARY

[0004] In one embodiment, in accordance with the principles of the present disclosure, a bedding system is provided that includes a chassis comprising a bottom wall, opposite first and second side walls extending upwardly from the bottom wall and opposite first and second end walls extending upwardly from the bottom wall. The walls define a cavity. A coil pack is positioned in the cavity. The coil pack comprises a plurality of springs. A first cover is positioned over the coil pack. The first cover is attached to the chassis by a first zipper. A comfort layer is positioned over the first cover. The comfort layer is attached to the chassis by a second zipper. A second cover is positioned over the comfort layer. The second cover is attached to the chassis by a third zipper.

[0005] In one embodiment, in accordance with the principles of the present disclosure, a bedding kit is provided that includes a chassis comprising a bottom wall, opposite first and second side walls extending upwardly from the bottom wall and opposite first and second end walls extending upwardly from the bottom wall. The walls define a cavity. A coil pack is configured to be positioned in the cavity. The coil pack comprises a plurality of springs. A first cover is configured to be positioned over the coil pack.

[0045] The present disclosure may be understood more readily by reference to the following detailed description of the disclosure taken in connection with the accompanying drawing figures, which form a part of this disclosure. It is to be understood that this disclosure is not limited to the specific devices, conditions or parameters described and/or shown herein, and that the terminology used herein is for the purpose of describing particular embodiments by way of example only and is not intended to be limiting of the claimed disclosure.

[0046] The bedding system disclosed herein includes a mattress assembly that is configured to lie on top of a foundation, such as, for example, a box spring. In some embodiments, the mattress assembly of the bedding system is compatible on all types of foundations, including, for example, adjustable bases. In some embodiments, the mattress assembly of the bedding system is configured to cover all or a portion of a top surface of the box spring/foundation. In some embodiments, the mattress assembly of the bedding system is configured to be larger than the top surface of the box spring/foundation. In some embodiments, the mattress assembly of the bedding system has substantially the same size and shape as the top surface of the box spring/foundation. In some embodiments, the mattress assembly of the bedding system is a standard size mattress, such as, for example, a twin mattress, a twin XL mattress, a full mattress, a queen mattress, a king mattress, a split king mattress, or a California king mattress. In some embodiments, the mattress assembly of the bedding system is a crib mattress.

[0047] In some embodiments, the mattress assembly of the bedding system is a modular performance mattress that features dual-sided independent suspension and air flow certification in every component of the mattress assembly. In some embodiments, the modular design of the mattress assembly allows a sleeper to personalize his or her comfort. For example, in some embodiments, the mattress assembly can include a plurality of comfort choices for the sleeper and his or her sleep partner. In some embodiments, the mattress assembly is compatible for use with a proven system and consistent fitting history that personalizes components of a bedding system, from a pillow to a mattress assembly.

[0048] In some embodiments, the mattress assembly of the bedding system is sustainable as it allows individual components to be upgraded over the lifetime of the mattress assembly. For example, coil packs of the mattress assembly can be replaced if the sleeper’s comfort preferences change. It is envisioned that allowing individual components to be upgraded and/or replaced avoids replacing an entire mattress assembly each time a component wears out or needs to be upgraded, thus significantly reducing landfill waste and our carbon footprint.

[0049] In some embodiments, the mattress assembly of the bedding system is configured for clean sleep as independent suspension components of the mattress assembly can be removed to allow the inside of a chassis of the mattress assembly to be vacuumed out during periodic deep cleanings. In some embodiments, the mattress assembly includes a top cover and comfort layer that are both removable and washable in cold water on the gentle cycle of a washing machine. In some embodiments, the mattress assembly includes a ventilated construction that prevents warm air and moisture from getting trapped in the mattress, which can lead to the growth of mold and mildew.

[0050] In some embodiments, the top cover of the mattress assembly of the bedding system is made from materials selected to provide certain desired characteristics, such as, for example, ventilation. In some embodiments, the top cover can include materials, such as, for example, VER-TEX ® , manufactured by Bedgear, LLC of Farmingdale, New York, to provide a cover having a cool touch that is also removable, washable and zips off for easy care. In some embodiments, the VER-TEX ® provides instant heat deflection. In some embodiments, the top cover can include materials, such as, for example, AIR-X ® , manufactured by Bedgear, LLC of Farmingdale, New York, to provide ventilation inside and out and enhanced air flow that removes humidity and excess body heat. In some embodiments, the top cover includes a quilted design to enhance the feel of the comfort layer.

[0051 ] In some embodiments, the comfort layer of the mattress assembly of the bedding system is made from materials selected to provide certain desired characteristics, such as, for example, support. In some embodiments, the comfort layer can include materials, such as, for example, REACT ® , manufactured by Bedgear, LLC of Farmingdale, New York, to provide weightless support that contours to the sleeper and creates cooler comfort. In some embodiments, the comfort layer can include materials, such as, for example, MICRO-CURL ® , manufactured by Bedgear, LLC of Farmingdale, New York, to reduce motion transfer. In some embodiments, the comfort layer can include materials, such as, for example, BOOST ® , manufactured by Bedgear, LLC of Farmingdale, New York, to provide dynamic support that adapts to the sleeper.

[0052] In some embodiments, the independent suspension of the mattress assembly of the bedding system includes individually wrapped coils to provide personalized support. In some embodiments, the coils are 8 inch coils. In some embodiments, the coils are greater than 8 inches. In some embodiments, the coils are less than 8 inches. In some embodiments, the chassis of the mattress assembly of the bedding system is sturdy to provide supportive structure. In some embodiments, the chassis is wrapped in AIR-X ® , manufactured by Bedgear, LLC of Farmingdale, New York, to ensure maximum airflow.

[0053] In some embodiments, the mattress assembly of the bedding system is delivered to a location in a plurality of boxes. In one embodiment, the chassis and the top cover are packaged in a first box, the independent suspension is packaged in a second box, and the comfort layer is packaged in a third box. In some embodiments, the mattress assembly includes two independent suspensions that are each packaged separately in different boxes. In some embodiments, the mattress assembly includes two independent suspensions that are both packaged together in the same box.

[0054] In some embodiments, the mattress assembly of the bedding system is assembled by removing the chassis form a first box and placing the chassis on a foundation. The top cover is removed from the first box and put aside. The chassis is removed from an outer plastic sleeve and is unfolded while compressed. In some embodiments, the chassis is removed from the outer plastic sleeve using a cutting tool that is included in the first box. The chassis is positioned relative to the foundation such that a logo on the chassis is at the foot end of the mattress. The chassis is removed from an inner plastic cover to allow the chassis to decompress.

[0055] A coil pack, such as, for example, an independent suspension is removed from a second box using the cutting tool and placed inside the chassis. In some embodiments, the mattress assembly includes two independent suspensions that are each packaged separately in different boxes. In such embodiments, the independents suspensions are each removed from their respective boxes and placed inside of chassis. In some embodiments, the mattress assembly includes two independent suspensions that are both packaged together in the same box. In such embodiments, the independents suspensions are each removed from their shared box and placed inside of chassis. The coil pack is removed from an outer plastic sleeve using the cutting tool to allow the coil pack to unroll. A small incision is made into an inner plastic cover to allow the coils to decompress. As the incision is enlarged, the coils will expand. A cover is placed over the coil packs and is zipped closed with the chassis. In some embodiments, a zipper of the cover and a zipper of the chassis meet in the center, at the foot of the bed.

[0056] The comfort layer is removed from a third box and is placed on top of the assembled chassis and independent suspension units. The comfort layer is removed from a plastic outer sleeve using the cutting tool to allow the comfort layer to unroll. Once the comfort layer is unrolled, an inner compression sleeve is pierced using the cutting tool to open the comfort layer. In some embodiments, a zipper start on the comfort layer is positioned at the head end of the bed in order to connect to the chassis. In some embodiments, the comfort layer is rotated relative to the chassis to correct the position of the comfort layer. The comfort layer is then zipped to the chassis.

[0057] The top cover is unfolded and laid over the comfort layer. In some embodiments, the zipper start for the top cover is located at the head end of the mattress. The top cover is zipped to an outer zipper of the chassis.

[0058] As used in the specification and including the appended claims, the singular forms“a,”“an,” and“the” include the plural, and reference to a particular numerical value includes at least that particular value, unless the context clearly dictates otherwise. Ranges may be expressed herein as from “about” or “approximately” one particular value and/or to “about” or “approximately” another particular value. When such a range is expressed, another embodiment includes from the one particular value and/or to the other particular value. Similarly, when values are expressed as approximations, by use of the antecedent“about,” it will be understood that the particular value forms another embodiment. It is also understood that all spatial references, such as, for example, horizontal, vertical, top, upper, lower, bottom, left and right, are for illustrative purposes only and can be varied within the scope of the disclosure. For example, the references“upper” and“lower” are relative and used only in the context to the other, and are not necessarily“superior” and“inferior”.

[0059] The following discussion includes a description of a bedding system in accordance with the principles of the present disclosure. Alternate embodiments are also disclosed.

That is, outermost walls of foundation 32 extend beyond outermost walls of mattress assembly 34, as shown in FIG. 1 . In such embodiments, foundation 32 has a maximum width W1 that is greater than a maximum width W2 of mattress assembly 34 and foundation 32 has a maximum length L1 that is greater than a maximum length L2 of mattress assembly 34. In some embodiments, width W1 is between about 5% and about 50% greater than width W2. In some embodiments, width W1 is between about 5% and about 25% greater than width W2. In some embodiments, width W1 is between about 5% and about 15% greater than width W2. In some embodiments, length L1 is between about 5% and about 50% greater than length L2. In some embodiments, length L1 is between about 5% and about 25% greater than length L2. In some embodiments, length L1 is between about 5% and about 15% greater than length L2.

[0064] In some embodiments, platform 38 includes at least one end wall

46 that extends from a side wall 48 of platform 38 to an opposite side wall 50 of platform 38. Walls 46, 48, 50 define a frame. Inner surfaces of walls 46, 48, 50 define a cavity 52 configured for disposal of mattress assembly 34. Cavity 52 has a size and shape that allows the entire footprint or perimeter of mattress assembly 34 to be positioned within cavity 52. In some embodiments, an outer surface of mattress assembly 34 directly engages the inner surfaces of walls 46, 48, 50 when mattress assembly 34 is positioned in cavity 52 to maintain mattress assembly 34 between wall 48 and wall 50 and between wall 46 and a wall W of room R to prevent mattress assembly 34 from moving relative to foundation 32.

[0065] In some embodiments, mattress assembly 34 is removably coupled to foundation 32 such that mattress assembly 34 can be removed from foundation 32 to clean within cavity 52, for example. In some embodiments, mattress assembly 34 is permanently fixed to foundation 32 to prevent unintended movement of mattress assembly 34 relative to foundation 32. In some embodiments, mattress assembly 34 can be variously connected with foundation 32, such as, for example, monolithic, integral connection, frictional engagement, mutual grooves, screws, adhesive, nails, barbs, raised elements, spikes, clips, snaps, friction fittings, compressive fittings, expanding rivets, staples, fixation plates, key/keyslot, tongue in groove, dovetail, magnetic connection and/or posts.

[0066] Mattress assembly 34 includes a chassis 54 comprising a bottom wall 56, a side wall 58, a side wall 60 opposite wall 58, an end wall 62 and an end wall 64 opposite wall 62. Wall 58 extends parallel to wall 60 and wall 62 extends parallel to wall 64. In some embodiments, walls 58, 60 each extend perpendicular to walls 62, 64. Walls 58, 60, 62, 64 each extend upwardly from wall 56. In some embodiments, walls 56, 58, 60, 62, 64 define a body of chassis 54. A top surface 56a of wall 56, an inner surface 58a of wall 58, an inner surface 60a of wall 60, an inner surface 62a of wall 62 and an inner surface 64a of wall 64 define a cavity 66 configured for disposal of a component of mattress assembly 34, such as, for example, one or more independent suspensions or coil packs 68, as discussed herein. In some embodiments, cavity 66 has a size and shape that is configured to match the size and shape of coil pack(s) 68 to prevent relative movement of coil pack(s) 68 relative to chassis 54 when coil pack(s) 68 is/are positioned within cavity 66, as discussed herein. In some embodiments, cavity 66 is variously shaped, such as, for example, circular, oval, oblong, triangular, rectangular, square, polygonal, irregular, uniform, non-uniform, offset, staggered, undulating, arcuate, variable and/or tapered.

[0067] In some embodiments, chassis 54 includes only one cavity between wall 58 and wall 60 and between wall 62 and wall 64, as shown in FIG. 4. That is, chassis 54 does not include any cavities between wall 58 and wall 60 and/or between wall 62 and wall 64 in addition to cavity 66. In some embodiments, chassis 54 includes a divider 70 that extends from wall 62 to wall 64. Divider 70 separates cavity 66 into a first cavity 66a and a second cavity 66b, as shown in FIG. 4A. In some embodiments, divider 70 is removable from wall 62 and/or wall 64. This allows a sleeper the option to either have a single coil pack 68 in a single cavity 66 or have a first coil pack 68a in cavity 66a and a second coil pack 68b in cavity 66b. In some embodiments, divider 70 is integrally formed with wall 62 and/or wall 64 to provide strength and/or rigidity to chassis 54. In some embodiments, coil packs 68a, 68b are each disposed in cavity 66 wherein cavity 66 is a single cavity without divider 70.

[0068] In some embodiments, chassis 54 is compressible to allow chassis to be rolled and/or folded. That is, chassis 54 is configured to move from a rolled and/or folded configuration to an unrolled and/or unfolded configuration. This allows chassis 54 to be positioned in a container, such as, for example, a cardboard box when chassis 54 is in the rolled and/or folded configuration. Chassis 54 is removed from the box while chassis is in the rolled and/or folded configuration. Chassis 54 is then placed on a surface, such as, for example, platform 38 and is moved from the rolled and/or folded configuration to the unrolled and/or unfolded configuration. In some embodiments, wall 56 is made from a fabric material and walls 58, 60, 62, 64 are each made from a compressible material, such as, for example, foam. In some embodiments, the foam is memory foam, latex foam, or another compressible and/or breathable foam. In some embodiments, walls 58, 60, 62, 64 each consist of foam. That is, wall 58 consists of memory foam from surface 58a to an opposite outer surface 58b of wall 58; wall 60 consists of memory foam from surface 60a to an opposite outer surface 60b of wall 60; wall 62 consists of memory foam from surface 62a to an opposite outer surface 62b of wall 62; and wall 64 consists of memory foam from surface 64a to an opposite outer surface 64b of wall 64. In some embodiments, walls 58, 60, 62, 64 are each made of one or more materials and are each homogeneous along the entire thicknesses and heights thereof. [0069] In some embodiments, surfaces 58a, 58b, 58c of wall 58, surfaces 60a, 60b, 60c of wall 60, surfaces 62a, 62b and 62c of wall 62, and surfaces 64a, 64b and 64c of wall 64 are each made from a breathable material, such as, for example, AIR-X®, manufactured by Bedgear, LLC of Farmingdale, New York. In such embodiments, wall 58 comprises or consists of memory foam between surfaces 58a, 58b and between surface 58c and wall 56; wall 60 comprises or consists of memory foam between surfaces 60a, 60b and between surface 60c and wall 56; wall 62 comprises memory foam between surfaces 62a, 62b and between surface 62c and wall 62; and wall 64 comprises memory foam between surfaces 64a, 64b and between surface 64c and wall 64.

[0070] In some embodiments, walls 58, 60, 62, 64 are each free of any hard and/or rigid material, such as, for example, metal, plastic and wood to allow chassis 54 to move between the rolled and/or folded configuration and the unrolled and/or unfolded configuration. In some embodiments, walls 58, 60, 62, 64 are each free of any hinges or joints. Indeed, chassis 54 relies upon the material that forms walls 58, 60, 62, 64, rather than hinges or joints, to move chassis 54 between the rolled and/or folded configuration and the unrolled and/or unfolded configuration. In some embodiments, at least one of walls 58, 60, 62, 64 includes a plurality of spaced apart divots or notches that extend into surface 58c, surface 60c, surface 62c and/or surface 64c to facilitate rolling of chassis 54.

[0071] Wall 56 includes a bottom surface 56b opposite surface 56a. Surface 56b is configured to directly engages a surface, such as, for example, a top surface of platform 38. In some embodiments, surface 56b comprises a non-skid material, such as, for example, rubber or a thermoplastic elastomer material and/or is roughened to prevent movement of chassis 54 relative to foundation 32. In some embodiments, wall 56 consists of a fabric material. In some embodiments, the fabric material is breathable to allow air and/or moisture to move through a thickness of wall 56. In some embodiments, wall 56 is highly porous. In some embodiments, wall 56 includes pores that are greater than 0.5 microns. In some embodiments, wall 56 includes pores that are greater than 3.0 microns. In some embodiments, wall 56 includes pores that are greater than 10.0 microns. In some embodiments, wall 56 is free of any hard and/or rigid material, such as, for example, metal, plastic and wood to allow chassis 54 to move between the rolled and/or folded configuration and the unrolled and/or unfolded configuration. In some embodiments, wall 56 is free of any hinges or joints. Indeed, chassis 54 relies upon the material that forms wall 56, rather than hinges or joints to move chassis 54 between the rolled and/or folded configuration and the unrolled and/or unfolded configuration.

[0072] In some embodiments, wall 56 is made from a fabric material, such as, for example, a spandex material. That is, the fabric material of wall 56 defines a base material of wall 56. In some embodiments, wall 56 includes one or a plurality of cords, such as, for example, straps 72 that are configured to provide strength to chassis 54, as discussed herein. In some embodiments, one or more of straps 72 are defined by stitching that is stitched into the base material such that straps 72 define areas of reinforced stitching that limit the stretchability of the base material in at least one direction such that mattress assembly 34 is sturdy when assembled, as discussed herein. In some embodiments, one or more of straps 72 are defined by a material that is attached to the base material. In some embodiments, straps 72 are positioned on or in surface 56a and/or surface 56b. For example, straps 72 can be positioned on one or more sides of wall 56.

[0073] In one embodiment, wall 56 includes at least one strap 72 that extends diagonally across wall 56. For example, in one embodiment, wall 56 includes a strap 72a that extends from a corner 74 of chassis 54 that is defined by an interface between wall 58 and wall 62 to a corner 76 of chassis 54 that is defined by an interface between wall 60 and wall 64 and/or a strap 72b that extends from a corner 78 of chassis 54 that is defined by an interface between wall 60 and wall 62 to a corner 80 of chassis 54 that is defined by an interface between wall 58 and wall 64. In some embodiments, wall 56 includes strap 72a and/or strap 72b and/or one or more additional diagonal straps 72. In some embodiments, strap 72a defines the maximum distance between corner 74 and corner 76. That is, strap 72a prevents corner 74 from being spaced apart from corner 76 a distance that is greater than the maximum length of strap 72a. In some embodiments, strap 72b defines the maximum distance between corner 78 and corner 80. That is, strap 72b prevents corner 78 from being spaced apart from corner 80 a distance that is greater than the maximum length of strap 72b.

[0074] In one embodiment, wall 58 includes at least one strap 72 that extends vertically across wall 58. For example, in one embodiment, wall 56 includes spaced apart straps 72c, 72d, 72e that each extend from wall 62 to wall 64, as shown in FIG. 4C, in addition to or in place of strap 72a, strap 72b and/or any additional diagonal straps 72. In some embodiments, strap 72d is positioned equidistant between wall 58 and wall 60; strap 72c is positioned equidistant between wall 58 and strap 72d; and strap 72e is positioned equidistant between wall 60 and strap 72d. In some embodiments, strap 72c is closer to one of wall 58 or strap 72d than the other one of wall 58 or strap 72d and/or strap 72e is closer to one of wall 60 or strap 72d than the other one of wall 58 or strap 72d. In some embodiments, wall 56 includes strap 72c, strap 72d and/or strap 72e and/or one or more additional vertical straps 72. In some embodiments, strap 72c, strap 72d and/or strap 72e define(s) the maximum distance between surface 62b and surface 64b. That is, strap 72c, strap 72d and/or strap 72e prevent(s) surface 62b from being spaced apart from surface 64b a distance that is greater than the maximum width of strap 72c, strap 72d and/or strap 72e.

[0075] In one embodiment, wall 58 includes at least one strap 72 that extends horizontally across wall 58. For example, in one embodiment, wall 56 includes spaced apart straps 72f, 72g, 72h that each extend from wall 58 to wall 60, as shown in FIG. 4D, in addition to or in place of strap 72a, strap 72b, strap 72c, strap 72d and/or strap 72e. In some embodiments, strap 72g is positioned equidistant between wall 62 and wall 64; strap 72f is positioned equidistant between wall 62 and strap 72g; and strap 72h is positioned equidistant between wall 64 and strap 72g. In some embodiments, strap 72f is closer to one of wall 62 or strap 72g than the other one of wall 62 or strap 72g and/or strap 72h is closer to one of wall 64 or strap 72g than the other one of wall 64 or strap 72g. In some embodiments, wall 56 includes strap 72e, strap 72f and/or strap 72g and/or one or more additional horizontal straps 72. In some embodiments, strap 72f, strap 72g and/or strap 72h define(s) the maximum distance between surface 58b and surface 60b. That is, strap 72f, strap 72g and/or strap 72h prevent(s) surface 58b from being spaced apart from surface 60b a distance that is greater than the maximum width of strap 72f, strap 72g and/or strap 72h.

[0076] In some embodiments, strap 72a, strap 72b, strap 72c, strap 72d, strap 72e, strap 72f, strap 72g and/or strap 72h extend onto one or more of surfaces 58a, 60a, 62a, 62a, as shown in FIGS. 4E and 4F. For example, in some embodiments, straps 72a, 72b, 72c, 72d, 72e each extend across wall 56 from surface 62a to surface 64a and straps 72f, 72g, 72h each extend across wall 56 from surface 58a to surface 60a. Straps 72a, 72b, 72c, 72d, 72e will thus limit the ability of walls 58, 60, 62, 64 from moving relative to one another. That is, straps 72a, 72b, 72c, 72d, 72e are configured to limit the distance wall 58 can be spaced apart from wall 60, the distance wall 60 can be spaced apart from wall 62, the distance corner 74 can be spaced apart from corner 76 and the distance corner 78 can be spaced apart from corner 80. Stated another way, straps 72a, 72b, 72c, 72d, 72e prevent wall 58 from being spaced apart from wall 60 more than the maximum lengths of straps 72c, 72d, 72e, prevent wall 60 from being spaced apart from wall 62 more than the maximum lengths of straps 72f, 72g, 72h, prevent corner 74 from being spaced apart from corner 76 more than the maximum length of strap 72a and prevent corner 78 from being spaced apart from corner 80 more than the maximum length of strap 72b.

[0077] In some embodiments, chassis 54 includes a jacket 82 that is coupled to surfaces 58b, 60b, 62b, 64b. Jacket 82 defines an outermost surface of chassis 54. That is, walls 58, 60, 62, 64 are each positioned within jacket 82 such that surfaces 58b, 60b, 62b, 64b directly engage an inner surface of jacket 82. In some embodiments, jacket 82 is made from a breathable material, such as, for example, AIR-X®, manufactured by Bedgear, LLC of Farmingdale, New York, to provide ventilation inside and out of chassis 54 and enhanced air flow that removes humidity and excess body heat from cavity 66. In some embodiments, jacket 82 is highly porous. In some embodiments, jacket 82 includes pores that are greater than 0.5 microns. In some embodiments, jacket 82 includes pores that are greater than 3.0 microns. In some embodiments, jacket 82 includes pores that are greater than 10.0 microns. In some embodiments, jacket 82 has a porosity that is greater than a porosity of walls 58, 60, 62, 64. In some embodiments, jacket 82 and surfaces 58b, 60b, 62b, 64b define one or more pockets therebetween. Due to the increased porosity of jacket 82 relative to walls 58, 60, 62, 64, air and/or or moisture in the pocket(s) will exit chassis 54 through pores in jacket 82. In some embodiments, chassis 54 is configured to have air and/or moisture in cavity 66 move through walls 58, 60, 62, 64 and into the pocket(s) defined by jacket 82 and surfaces 58b, 60b, 62b, 64b. As such, air and/or moisture in cavity 66 will move through walls 58, 60, 62, 64 and into the pocket(s) defined by jacket 82 and surfaces 58b, 60b, 62b, 64b. The air and/or moisture in the pocket(s) will then exit the pocket(s) through jacket 82. [0078] Jacket 82 includes an end 84 having a central section 84a positioned between opposite end sections 84b, 84c. Section 84a includes a bottom surface 84a1 that engages wall 56 and an opposite top surface 84a2 that is positioned between wall 56 and a top surface 62c of wall 62.

In some embodiments, end 86 is concavely curved between section 86a and section 86b and between section 86a and section 86c such that a portion of each of sections 86b, 86c are positioned above surface 64c. In some embodiments, section 86a is permanently fixed relative to wall 64 along an entire length of section 86a. That is, no part of section 86a is movable relative to wall 64.

[0080] Jacket 82 includes a side 88 positioned between end 86 and end 84. Side 88 has a central section 88a positioned between opposite end sections 88b, 88c. Section 88a includes a bottom surface 88a1 that engages wall 56 and an opposite top surface 88a2 that is positioned between wall 56 and a top surface 58c of wall 58. Sections 88b, 88c each extend above surface 58c, as shown in FIG. 6, for example. In some embodiments, side 88 is concavely curved between section 88a and section 88b and between section 88a and section 88c such that a portion of each of sections 88b, 88c are positioned above surface 58c. Sections 84b, 88b define a flap 90 that is movable relative to walls 58, 62 and extends above surfaces 58c, 62c. Sections 86b, 88c define a flap 92 that is movable relative to walls 58, 64 and extends above surfaces 58c, 64c. In some embodiments, section 88a is permanently fixed relative to wall 58 along an entire length of section 88a. That is, no part of section 88a is movable relative to wall 58.

[0081] Jacket 82 includes a side 94 positioned between end 86 and end

84. Side 94 is positioned opposite side 88. Side 94 has a central section 94a positioned between opposite end sections 94b, 94c.

Sections 84c, 94b define a flap 96 that is movable relative to walls 58, 62 and extends above surfaces 58c, 62c. Sections 86c, 94c define a flap 98 that is movable relative to walls 60, 64 and extends above surfaces 60c, 64c. In some embodiments, section 94a is permanently fixed relative to wall 60 along an entire length of section 94a. That is, no part of section 94a is movable relative to wall 60.

[0082] Chassis 54 includes one or a plurality of fasteners, such as, for example, zippers to connect other components of mattress assembly 34 with chassis 54, as discussed herein. In some embodiments, chassis 54 includes a row of teeth 100 of a zipper 102. Teeth 100 extend along walls 58, 60, 62, 64 and are configured to engage and/or interdigitate with a row of teeth 104 of a component of system 30, such as, for example, a cover 106 to attach cover 106 to chassis 54, as discussed herein. Teeth 104 are part of zipper 102 and may be moved relative to teeth 100 using a slider of zipper 102 such that teeth 104 engage and/or interdigitate with teeth 100. In some embodiments, teeth 100 extend continuously about the entire perimeter of cavity 66. In some embodiments, teeth 100 are positioned at an interface between surfaces 58a, 58c, at an interface between surface 60a, 60c, at an interface between surfaces 62a, 62c, and at an interface between surfaces 64a, 64c.

Teeth 108 extend along walls 58, 60, 62, 64 and are configured to engage and/or interdigitate with a row of teeth 1 12 of a component of system 30, such as, for example, a comfort layer 1 14 to attach comfort layer 1 14 to chassis 54, as discussed herein. Teeth 1 12 are part of zipper 1 10 and may be moved relative to teeth 108 using a slider of zipper 1 10 such that teeth 1 1 2 engage and/or interdigitate with teeth 108. In some embodiments, teeth 108 extend continuously about the entire perimeter of teeth 100. That is, teeth 100 define a perimeter that is enclosed within a perimeter defined by teeth 108. In some embodiments, teeth 108 are positioned at an interface between surfaces 58b, 58c, at an interface between surfaces 60b, 60c, at an interface between surfaces 62b, 62c, and at an interface between surfaces 64b, 64c. In some embodiments, comfort layer 1 14 can be variously connected with chassis 54, such as, for example, mutual grooves, screws, adhesive, nails, barbs, raised elements, spikes, clips, snaps, friction fittings, compressive fittings, expanding rivets, staples, fixation plates, key/keyslot, tongue in groove, dovetail, magnetic connection and/or posts.

[0086] In some embodiments, comfort layer 1 14 is similar to a mattress topper and is configured to be positioned on top of cover 106 such that a bottom surface of comfort layer 1 14 directly engages a top surface of cover 106. In some embodiments, comfort layer 1 14 includes a cushion or cushioning material to provide cushioning to the sleeper(s) that lie on top of comfort layer 1 14. Comfort layer 1 14 is removeably coupled to chassis 54 to allow comfort layer 1 14 to be removed from chassis 54 for cleaning or to replace comfort layer 1 14 with a new comfort layer 1 14, as discussed herein. For example, if the sleeper desires a mattress that is firmer, comfort layer 1 14 can be removed from chassis 54 by unzipping zipper 1 10. Comfort layer 1 14 can then be replaced with a comfort layer 1 14 that is firmer. In some embodiments, comfort layer 1 14 can be a mat, a mattress topper or a mattress. It is envisioned that comfort layer 1 14 can have various thicknesses. For example, comfort layer 1 14 can have a thickness that is less than 1 inch, a thickness that is greater than 3 inches or any thickness between 0.1 inches and 12 inches.

[0087] In some embodiments, chassis 54 includes a row of teeth 1 16 of a zipper 1 18. Teeth 1 16 extend continuously along an upper edge of jacket 82 and are configured to engage and/or interdigitate with a row of teeth 120 of a component of system 30, such as, for example, a top cover 122 to attach cover 122 to chassis 54, as discussed herein. That is, teeth 1 16 extend along surfaces 84a2, 86a2, 88a2, 94a2 and upper edges of flaps 90, 92, 96, 98. Teeth 120 are part of zipper 1 18 and may be moved relative to teeth 1 16 using a slider of zipper 1 18 such that teeth 120 engage and/or interdigitate with teeth 1 16. In some embodiments, teeth 1 16 extend continuously about the entire perimeter of teeth 108. That is, teeth 108 define a perimeter that is enclosed within a perimeter defined by teeth 1 16. In some embodiments, teeth 1 16 extend continuously along an entire perimeter of jacket 82. Since jacket 82 is positioned outside of walls 58, 60, 62, 64, the perimeter defined by walls 58, 60, 62, 64 is enclosed within the perimeter defined by jacket 82. In some embodiments, cover 122 can be variously connected with chassis 54, such as, for example, mutual grooves, screws, adhesive, nails, barbs, raised elements, spikes, clips, snaps, friction fittings, compressive fittings, expanding rivets, staples, fixation plates, key/keyslot, tongue in groove, dovetail, magnetic connection and/or posts. In some embodiments, teeth 120 include a start 120a, as shown in FIG. 15, and cover 122 includes a flap 125 that is configured to cover start 120a and a slider of zipper 1 18. In some embodiments, flap 125 includes a fastener, such as, for example, hooks and/or loops 125 of Velcro that is configured to attach to hooks and/or loops of chassis 54 to fix flap 125 relative to cover 122 and chassis 54. [0088] Surface 36 is defined by a top surface of cover 122. Cover 122 is configured to couple comfort layer 1 14 to chassis 54 such that comfort layer 1 14 is prevented from shifting relative to chassis 54. Cover 122 includes a bottom surface 128 opposite surface 36. In some embodiments, cover 122 is made from a fabric material, such as, for example, a spandex material. That is, the fabric material of cover 122 defines a base material of cover 122. In some embodiments, cover 122 includes one or a plurality of straps 130 that are configured to provide strength to mattress assembly 34, as discussed herein. In some embodiments, one or more of straps 130 are defined by stitching that is stitched into the base material such that straps 130 define areas of reinforced stitching that limit the stretchability of the base material in at least one direction such that mattress assembly 34 is sturdy when assembled, as discussed herein.

[0089] In one embodiment, cover 122 includes at least one strap 130 that extends diagonally across cover 122, as shown in FIG. 13A. For example, in one embodiment, cover 122 includes a strap 130a that extends from a corner 132 of cover 122 to a corner 134 of cover 122 and/or a strap 130b that extends from a corner 136 of cover 122 to a corner 138 of cover 122. In some embodiments, cover 122 includes strap 130a and/or strap 130b and/or one or more additional diagonal straps 130. Straps 130a, 130b are configured to draw flap 90 toward flap 98 and/or draw flap 92 toward flap, or vice versa. For example, in some embodiments, straps 130a, 130b each have a maximum length that is less than the maximum length between flap 90 and flap 98 and a maximum length between flap 92 and flap 96 before cover 122 is zipped into chassis 54. Once cover 122 is zipped into chassis 54, the maximum length between flap 90 and flap 98 and the maximum length between flap 92 and flap 96 reduces such that the maximum length between flap 90 and flap 98 and the maximum length between flap 92 and flap 96 is equal to the maximum lengths of straps 130a, 130b.

[0090] In one embodiment, cover 122 includes at least one strap 130 that extends vertically across cover 122, as shown in FIG. 13B. For example, in one embodiment, cover 122 includes spaced apart straps 130c, 130d, 130e that each extend from an end 140 of cover 122 to an opposite end 142 of cover 122, in addition to or in place of strap 130a, strap 130b and/or any additional diagonal straps 130. In some embodiments, strap 130d is positioned equidistant between a side 144 of cover 122 and an opposite side 146 of cover 122; strap 130c is positioned equidistant between side 144 and strap 130d; and strap 130e is positioned equidistant between side 146 and strap 130d. In some embodiments, strap 130c is closer to one of side 144 or strap 130d than the other one of side 144 or strap 130d and/or strap 130e is closer to one of side 146 or strap 130d than the other one of side 146 or strap 130d. In some embodiments, cover 122 includes strap 130c, strap 130d and/or strap 130e and/or one or more additional vertical straps 130. Straps 130c, 130d, 130d are configured to draw wall 62 toward wall 64, or vice versa. For example, in some embodiments, straps 130c, 130d, 130d each have a maximum length that is less than the maximum length between wall 62 and wall 64 before cover 122 is zipped into chassis 54. Once cover 122 is zipped into chassis 54, the maximum length between wall 62 and wall 64 is equal to the maximum lengths of straps 130c, 130d, 130d.

[0091] In one embodiment, cover 122 includes at least one strap 130 that extends horizontally across cover 122. For example, in one embodiment, cover 122 includes spaced apart straps 130f, 130g, 130h that each extend from end 140 to end 142, as shown in FIG. 13C, in addition to or in place of strap 130a, strap 130b, strap 130c, strap 130d and/or strap 130e. In some embodiments, strap 130g is positioned equidistant between end 140 and end 142; strap 130f is positioned equidistant between end 140 and strap 130g; and strap 130h is positioned equidistant between end 142 and strap 130g. In some embodiments, strap 130f is closer to one of end 140 or strap 140g than the other one of end 140 or strap 130g and/or strap 130h is closer to one of end 142 or strap 130g than the other one of end 142 or strap 130g. In some embodiments, cover 122 includes strap 130e, strap 130f and/or strap 130g and/or one or more additional horizontal straps 130. Straps 130e, 130f, 130g are configured to draw wall 58 toward wall 60, or vice versa. For example, in some embodiments, straps 130e, 130f, 130g each have a maximum width that is less than the maximum width between wall 58 and wall 60 before cover 122 is zipped into chassis 54. Once cover 122 is zipped into chassis 54, the maximum width between wall 58 and wall 60 is equal to the maximum widths of straps 130e, 130f, 130g.

[0092] As discussed above, one or a plurality of coil packs 68 is/are configured for disposal within cavity 66. For example, mattress assembly 34 may include a first coil pack 68a and a second coil pack 68b. In some embodiments, coil pack 68a is different than coil pack 68b. For example, in one embodiment, coil pack 68a has a firmness that is different than a firmness of coil pack 68b. This allows mattress assembly 34 to accommodate two different comfort preferences of two different sleepers. For example, if a sleeper who sleeps on the left side of the bed prefers a firmer mattress than a sleeper who sleeps on the right side of the bed, coil pack 68a can be provided with a firmness that is greater than a firmness of coil pack 68b. If, on the other hand, the sleeper who sleeps on the left side of the bed prefers a softer mattress than the sleeper who sleeps on the right side of the bed, coil pack 68a can be provided with a firmness that is less than a firmness of coil pack 68b. In some embodiments, springs 124 of coil pack 68a may include more or less coils than springs 124 of coil pack 68b. In some embodiments, springs 124 of coil pack 68a may include coils having a different gauge than the coils of springs 124 of coil pack 68b. In some embodiments, springs 124 of coil pack 68a may include different coils than the coils of springs 124 of coil pack 68b. For example, springs 124 of coil pack 68a may include continuous coils, bonnell coils, offset coils and marshall coils and coil pack 68b may include springs 124 having coils that are different than the coils of springs 124 of coil pack 68a. Using different springs 124 in coil pack 68a than coil pack 68b allows mattress assembly 34 to be customized based on preference. It is also envisioned that coil pack 68a and coil pack 68b can be identical to one another in both structure and performance.

[0093] In some embodiments, coil packs 68a 68b are positioned directly on top of wall 56 such that bottom surfaces of coil packs 68a 68b directly engage surface 56a of wall 56. When coil packs 68a 68b are positioned within cavity 66, surfaces of coil pack 68a directly engage surfaces 58a, 62a, 64a, surfaces of coil pack 68b directly engage surfaces 60a, 62a, 64a and a side surface of coil pack 68a directly engages a side surface of coil pack 68 to prevent coil packs 68a, 68b from moving relative to one another and chassis 54.

[0094] Coil pack 68a and coil pack 68b each comprise a plurality of springs 124 positioned within a pouch 126, as shown in FIGS. 5A and 5B, for example. Springs 124 are enclosed within pouch 126. Coil packs 68a, 68b each comprise one or a plurality of rows of springs 124 and one or a plurality of columns of springs 124. As shown in FIG. 5B, coil packs 68a, 68b each include a plurality of rows of springs 124 and a plurality of columns of springs 124. In some embodiments, coil packs 68a, 68b each include a plurality of strings of springs, as described in U.S. Patent Application No. 62/347,199 to the applicant of the current application, which is incorporated by reference herein, in its entirety. In some embodiments, springs 124 are each positioned within a pocket, such as, for example, a fabric pocket. The pockets may be coupled to one another to form a string of pockets that each include one of springs 124 therein. In some embodiments, the string of pockets includes one or more slits between adjacent pockets to allow springs 124 to move independently of one another. In some embodiments, the string of pockets includes one or more slits that extend through a top surface of the string of pockets between adjacent pockets and/or one or more slits that extend through a bottom surface of the string of pockets between adjacent pockets.

[0095] In operation and use, the components of mattress assembly 34 may be shipped to a destination, such as, for example, a residential home, in one or a plurality of containers, such as, for example, one or a plurality of boxes 152. It is envisioned that the components of mattress assembly 34 may be shipped to the destination via ground shipping. In some embodiments, the components of mattress assembly 34 are shipped to the destination via the U.S. postal system, United Parcel Service or Federal Express. In some embodiments, chassis 54 and cover 122 are packaged in a first box 152a, comfort layer 1 14 is packaged in a second box 152b that is separate from box 152a, a first coil pack 68 is packaged in a third box 152c that is separate from boxes 152a, 152b, and a second coil pack 68 is packaged in a fourth box 152d that is separate from boxes 152a, 152b, 152c, as shown in FIG. 19. In some embodiments, a set of instructions 154 may be included in one of boxes 152a, 152b, 152c, 152d that includes step by step directions how to assemble mattress assembly 34. [0096] In some embodiments, instructions 154 include an overview of what is included in boxes 152a, 152b, 152c, 152d, as shown in FIG. 20. In some embodiments, instructions 154 include directions for removing chassis 54 from box 152a and assembling chassis 54, as shown in FIG. 21 . For example, in some embodiments, chassis 54 is removed from box 152a with chassis 54 in a folded and compressed configuration. Chassis 54 is removed from an outer plastic sleeve and is unfolded. Chassis 54 is then removed from an inner plastic cover to decompress chassis 54. In some embodiments, chassis 54 is removed from the outer plastic sleeve using a cutting tool. In some embodiments, the cutting tool is included in one of boxes 152a, 152b, 152c, 152d.

[0097] In some embodiments, instructions 154 include directions for removing coil packs 68 from boxes 152c, 154d and assembling coil packs 68 with chassis 54, as shown in FIG. 22. For example, in some embodiments, the first coil pack 68 is removed from box 152c with the first coil pack 68 in a rolled and compressed configuration. The first coil pack 68 is then removed from an outer plastic sleeve and unrolled. The first coil pack 68 is then removed from an inner plastic cover to decompress the first coil pack 68. Once the first coil pack 68 is decompressed, the first coil pack 68 is inserted into cavity 66. Likewise, the second coil pack 68 is removed from box 152d with the second coil pack 68 in a rolled and compressed configuration. The second coil pack 68 is then removed from an outer plastic sleeve and unrolled. The second coil pack 68 is then removed from an inner plastic cover to decompress the second coil pack 68. Once the second coil pack 68 is decompressed, the second coil pack 68 is inserted into cavity 66 and is positioned next to the first coil pack 58. In some embodiments, the coil packs 68 are removed from the outer plastic sleeve using the cutting tool that was used to remove chassis 54 from the outer plastic sleeve. Cover 106 is positioned over coil packs 68 such that teeth 100 of zipper 102 engage teeth 104 of zipper 102. Zipper 102 is then zipped up such that teeth 100 interdigitate with teeth 104 to attach cover 106 with chassis 54, as discussed herein.

[0098] In some embodiments, instructions 154 include directions for removing comfort layer 1 14 from box 152b and assembling comfort layer 1 14 with chassis 54, as shown in FIG. 23. For example, in some embodiments, comfort layer 1 14 is removed from box 152b with comfort layer 1 14 in a rolled and compressed configuration. Comfort layer 1 14 is removed from an outer plastic sleeve using the cutting tool and is unrolled. Comfort layer 1 14 is then removed from an inner plastic cover to decompress comfort layer 1 14. Once comfort layer 1 14 is decompressed, comfort layer 1 14 is positioned on top of cover 106 such that teeth 108 of zipper 1 10 engage teeth 1 12 of zipper 1 10. Zipper 1 10 is then zipped up such that teeth 108 interdigitate with teeth 1 12 to attach comfort layer 1 14 with chassis 54, as discussed herein.

[0099] In some embodiments, instructions 154 include directions for removing cover 122 from box 152a and assembling cover 122 with chassis 54, as shown in FIG. 24. For example, in some embodiments, cover 122 is moved from a rolled configuration to an unrolled configuration and is laid over comfort layer 1 14 such that teeth 1 16 of zipper 1 18 engage teeth 120 of zipper 1 18. Zipper 1 18 is then zipped up such that teeth 1 16 interdigitate with teeth 120 to attach comfort cover 122 with chassis 54, as discussed herein.

[00100] In some embodiments, a kit is provided that includes one or more of the components of bedding system 30 discussed herein.
