This review will focus on two memory foam mattress toppers produced by Foamex: the award winning Sensus, and the truly innovative green Aerus foam.
According to many Foamex retailers these are the top two selling memory foam mattress topper brands produced by Foamex. Each foam offers unique selling points.
The memory foam mattress toppers similarities
Both Sensus and Aerus are produced by North America’s largest foam manufacturer, Foamex. Both brands feature a 10 year manufacturer’s warranty. Both foams are manufactured using Foamex’s patented Variable Pressure Foaming (VPF) process.
The memory foam mattress toppers differences
Sensus is a 5 lb density foam, which means that one cubic foot of its material will weight 5 lbs. While Aerus has a 4 lb density. Aerus is also a softer foam and carries and IFD (or firmness) rating of 12. While, its counter-part Sensus has an IFD rating of 13.
Sensus is a more established brand as evidenced by its Best Overall award for memory foam by the Wall Street Journal.
Aerus happens to be one of the first truly environmentally-friendly green memory foams available to the consuming public. In fact, Foamex introduced the re-manufactured product line this March at the 2008 ISPA Expo in Baltimore Maryland.
Aerus is a cooling memory foam and features open-cell memory foam which prevents excess heat and dissipates moisture quickly. This revolutionary design circulates air up to eight times more efficiently than other similar memory foam mattress toppers.
