EPEDA MULTI-AIR TECHNOLOGY
A relaxed body on a healthy mattress
Precision comfort and perfect ventilation, multi-air technology will afford you an idyllic night’s sleep. Incorporating 32% of recycled steel, the “Regen’Air” patented pocket springs system guarantees a healthy bed through regular ventilation (up to 10 times a night).
The springs’ great adaptability and the work of the different mattress zones (3 or 5) ensures high definition precision – the shoulder and pelvic-lumbar areas give the perfect amount of support while the rest of the body benefits from optimal flexibility.

DAN ET JAMES B.
Their mother has built her career in the factory as a tailor, they have worked there for 4 years. Dan is a quilting machine operator. First, he loads the materials which are carried along and piled up. Then, he checks the covers and stores them. He places the top of the range models into the operating machine dedicated to pre-programmed designs. The others are decorated by the multi-needle quilting machine. His smile says it all! Dan loves passing on his skills and secrets. He knows he has to be precise, thorough and methodical. He wears ear protectors, because the machines never stop. At the other end of the line, his younger brother, James, is a mattress closer. It took him six months to learn and a year to become a pro. Closing is a key operation. Two people close the mattresses: James closes the winter cover, the most technical. He has to stitch the layers of materials together, the operation demands dexterity, control and precision. Then it’s up to his colleague. When the summer cover is sewn, the mattress is finished. Today, James closes half a mattress in one minute and more than 100 mattresses pass through his hands each day. He’s got the flow!
