Sealy’s Quality and Durability

Many beds look the same. But when you examine the design and quality of the components, they can be worlds apart. Sealy leads the bedding industry in research and development. Decades of research and development have led to patented technology that lies at the heart of our current product range. No aspect of quality is left to chance. Every component is subjected to simulated time/wear and fatigue testing. The performance of every component from the foams in the quilt on top of the bed to the castors on the base is a known and proven factor. And Sealy quality is never compromised by lowering a specification or withdrawing components.
