FASTASLEEP® Mattresses are heading abroad

A total of 692 FASTASLEEP® Fire Resistant Vandal Proof Mattresses were exported internationally this week to one customer for use in the prison sector.


This is a returning customer and shows us that the mattresses are performing well and meeting their needs in the fact that they keep coming back to purchase more.


The FASTASLEEP Mattress has a fire resistant rip-stop waterproof fabric cover.  It has fully welded seams, with no stitching to unpick and also has inbuilt anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. It is easily cleaned and disinfected, and therefore perfect for the prison sector.


Our aim is to sell more of our FASTASLEEP products internationally as demand and enquiries are increasing.


Well done to the FASTEAM for working hard and completing the order ahead of schedule!!
