How It Works
What makes the DUO so special?
Unlike other mattresses, DUO allows couples to select their own comfort level for their side of the bed. You can choose between soft, medium and firm so if you have different preferences, you don’t have to buy two mattresses. You can even swap your firmness with the pull of a zip so if your preferences change, your mattress does too. DUO is not one size fits all, it’s the one that fits right.
I have back pain, will the DUO help?
If you wake up with aches and pains, you may need a firmer mattress. You can choose firm for your side of the mattress, whilst your partner can opt for a softer comfort.
Who is the DUO suitable for?
The DUO mattress is perfect for couples who are different sizes or have different preferences on comfort. Some people like to sink in to a cocoon-like soft mattress whereas others prefer to lie on top of a mattress with no give. The DUO gives the best of both worlds, without the need for a zip and link style mattress.
Can I change my comfort level in the future?
We want to make sure your mattress is perfect for both of you. During your 100 night sleep trial you can customise your mattress free of charge, so if you’re not sure about the firmness you’ve chosen, you can simply swap it! After your 100 night trial, you can still purchase more foam inserts for a small charge, so you can keep refreshing your mattress for years to come.
Is the DUO mattress suitable for allergy sufferers?
Not only is the mattress naturally dust-mite resistant, it’s also great for people with sensitive skin. The fabric cover can be easily removed and machine washed whilst the modular design means you can clean and replace individual components so there’s no dirt or dust build up.
How It's Made
What is the DUO made of?
Designed exclusively couples, the DUO mattress has been engineered to give you the best night’s sleep without compromising on comfort or quality. Inside the mattress is a 1,800 pocket sprung core and our unique, split comfort reflex foam. This is topped with a thermo regulating Viscoool foam layer for extra comfort and coolness. The mattress is finally encased in our luxury, hypoallergenic cover which can be removed and machine washed for easy cleaning.
What is reflex foam? How is it different from memory foam?
We use reflex foam in our mattress as opposed to traditional memory foam. Reflex foam is different in two main ways. It’s much more responsive to your body meaning it adjusts instantly when you change position during the night and bounces back to its original shape faster. Reflex foam doesn’t get as warm as memory foam so it can keep you cooler at night.
How does the Viscoool layer regulate temperature?
Being too hot makes it difficult to get a good night’s sleep, that’s why we’ve incorporated Viscoool’s thermo regulating foam in to our mattress.
Made from a blend of natural materials including soybean oil and a natural balm, Viscoool foam has a unique open pored structure that helps to reduce heat build-up and allows air to circulate freely within the mattress. This allows you to stay cooler for longer so you can sleep comfortably all night long.
Does your mattress contain latex?
Our mattress is completely latex free which makes it perfect for those that suffer from latex allergies.
Who manufactures the DUO?
All DUO mattresses are made right here in the UK by one of the leading manufacturers Breasley. Based in North Manchester, Breasley are approved by the National Bed Federation and have been producing quality mattresses for over 40 years with state of the art machinery and a skilled workforce. You can be confident in the quality of your mattress when ordering from DUO.
Is the DUO mattress environmentally friendly?
We are dedicated to minimising our environmental impact. All DUO mattresses are made in the UK and are local to us here in Manchester, helping to reduce our carbon footprint. The few returns we do receive are either donated to charity or broken down and the components recycled individually for future use in other industries.
How is it tested?
We have thoroughly examined our DUO mattress with the use of extensive roller testing to ensure it is made to last. The DUO has performed well in all tests and has been placed in the top category for foam settlement and dipping, meaning you can get your best night’s sleep for years to come.
What safety certificates do you have?

Using and Caring for my DUO Mattress
When can I start sleeping on my new mattress?
There is no need to wait for your mattress to unroll or reshape before you can sleep on it. All DUO mattresses are ready to sleep on straight away allowing you to get your best night’s sleep sooner.
Does the mattress work with all bed bases?
Yes the DUO works with all standard UK bed bases, including slatted, divan, and box sprung. Please check the size dimensions of your chosen mattress before purchasing.
Will I need to turn my mattress?
No, the DUO has only one sleeping surface so there is no need to worry about flipping your mattress. To help make your mattress last longer we do however recommend that you rotate it at least once every two months.
Do these work on adjustable/electric beds?
Yes our mattresses do work on adjustable beds.
Can you use electric blankets with this?
Yes it is fine to use an electric blanket with our mattress.
Will I feel my partner moving?
Each side of the DUO mattress is independent of the other. The individually wrapped pocket springs help to reduce partner disturbance and roll-together whilst the individual foam set-ups on each side of the mattress make for a personal sleep experience for both partners, with minimal disturbance.
How do I take care of my DUO?
We recommend you take regular care of your mattress to ensure better performance over time and to help make it last longer.
How can I clean my mattress?
It’s really simple to keep your DUO mattress clean. Just unzip the cover and remove completely from the mattress then this can be washed in the machine on a normal cycle at 30 degrees. The cover should be air dried and not tumble dried. The foam inserts inside the mattress are also removable allowing you to vacuum and air out the mattress to help combat dust mites and bed bugs.
What is a person’s maximum recommended weight for the DUO?
Our mattresses are recommended for use by persons up to 16 stone in weight.
How deep is the DUO mattress?
Our mattress is 25cm deep.
How much do the mattresses weigh?
The weight of the mattress depends on what size you order. The single mattress weighs 20kg; the double 30kg; king size 35kg; and super king 42kg.
Will my mattress smell when it is delivered?
As with most foam mattresses your DUO will give off a slight odour after it’s unpacked. Don’t worry – it is totally safe and the odour will disappear after a few hours. A well-ventilated room will help speed up this process.
