One of the largest bed manufacturers in Australia is A.H. Beard. They produced the KoolFlow® mattress until a few years ago. KoolFlow used the Airflow Transfer System (ATS) innovation for memory foam mattresses designed to dissipate heat through a new, patented technology to transfer vertical airflow through the comfort layers of a mattress to flow horizontally to the side of the mattress. This is discussed extensively in the Tri-Pedic, TempFlow, and Snuggle-Pedic memory foam mattress reviews above.
“KoolFlow” is a variation of Kool-Flow, the name of the cover fabric patented by Relief-Mart, Selectabed. This blend of polyester, rayon from bamboo, and spandex is a key component of ATS with its knitted-in micro-vents for enhanced air permeability.
The KoolFlow mattress had been manufactured by A.H. Beard, the oldest family-owned mattress maker in Australia, under license from Relief-Mart, but was discontinued due to pressure on key retailers by a competitor.
