How do we test the Koala Mattress?

The Koala Mattress has over 16,000 5 star reviews making it Australia’s highest rated mattress brand. It’s won many awards over the years with the most recent being CANSTAR 2019 Most Satisfied Customers Award for 2019 where we beat other companies in the running like Sealy, Sleepmaker, King Koil, and Ikea. Koala received high ratings for Comfort, Durability, Support, Quality of Sleep and Value for Money.

Tested for Human Safety

The Koala Mattress has undergone numerous tests to ensure it is safe to sleep on, is comfortable, and supportive to sleep on, and will last.

As it is designed, and built in Sydney, the Koala Mattress foam has undergone, and received Good Environmental Choice Label (GECA).

GECA is the Australian authority for assessing, testing and independently auditing products, materials and services for the Australian market. The Koala mattress has been laboratory tested to not contain any heavy metals, formaldehyde, VOCS, or hazardous materials that are potentially allergenic, carcinogenic or disruptive to hormone systems.

For safety, the foam is CETEC certificated to mean the Green Building Council of Australia’s standards for total volatile organic compound emission rates.

The full breakdown of what standards the Koala mattress foam is certified to abide by can be found here.

Tested for Durability, and Support

We do durability testing to ensure that the mattress will continue to provide long lasting support for a full 10 years to match our warranty. 

It has undergone numerous tests like ASTM impact testing which consists of testing durability, impact test , and firmness retention test/surface deformation. As well as Rollator Durability Testing and Hexagonal Rollator Test, Impact Test, and Cornell test.

We even do Humid Pounding Testing (100kgs) because we know that in Australia, hot summers and heat waves are a reality. We test our mattresses under hot, and humid conditions to ensure that they are durable even if you live in the hottest locations across Australia. 

Tested By Real People

We don’t believe there is one product that will suit everyone but have tested our products to ensure they suit most people.

We read all feedback, and try assist in any way to help each customer gets a good night sleep. Everybody is different which is why we allow every body to trial our mattress for 120 nights!
