  1. 100% polyester fabric provides strength to hold the tufting and flexibility for superior cushioning.
  2. 7" of fantastic 2.0 pound density foam provides the ability to keep the mattress looking and feeling great. 
  3. Machine tuft reduces the thickness of the mattress to lock in its look and feel.
  4. An FR rayon wrap protects the mattress and gives a clean finished look.
  5. The tape edge process insures a proper fit and finish of the mattress cover.




stratos1.gifBench Built - hand made quality assures uniformity and quality control on each futon.


Box Edges - for a TRUE reading of thickness, 8" or 6"


Overstuffed - generous amounts (approx. 12") of different combinations of highly resilient foam and fiber that create an "inside out" force against the mattress ticking that is necessary for proper and comfortable support, whether sitting or sleeping.


Tape Edge Closure - expert mattress tailoring operation that seals the comfort inside the mattress, insures proper placement of materials in the cover and reinforces the edges to present a clean tailored look instead of a "haphazardly stuffed look."


stratoFuton.jpgCompression Lace Tufting - This customized process alone will differentiate an Otis futon from any other! CLT serves to compress, strengthen and control the overstuffed cushioning materials. Our "button-less" tufting process forces the foam, fibers, springs an mattress fabric to work together to create a supportive synergy that produces a comfort level unique to each mattress… bottom line, your mattress will feel as supportive as it did on the first day.


Important to know when talking about thickness

Thickness can be a relative term in the mattress industry! Normally, when someone says this mattress is 8" is 8"thick, or if they say it's 10"…you expect to see a ten-inch mattress, not some rounded mattress that is guessed to be about 10" thick basically for marketing purposes only! The only true way to decipher the actual thickness of the mattress is to have a measurable border material (or a boxed edge, like a traditional mattress does). All of our futon mattresses are bench built and are made with a boxed corner and are tape-edged…this is just part of our signature manufacturing process. The bonus is that the "thickness" of the futon is easily deciphered, and it leaves the mattress with a clean tailored look for many years.


Key Value Messages for Otis Futons

To supply a cushioning product that is of outstanding overall value, which results in the end user being willing to refer Otis Bed to others. The aim for our mattresses is simple. To be as comfortable as they are durable.


Comfortable - to be as comfy, if not more so than traditional upholstered sofas when being used as a couch. Also, to be flexible and conformable so as not to cause painful, unhealthy pressure points *(which affect circulation to joints and surrounding tissue) for the occasional or every night sleeper. "As a supplier of pressure management therapy mattresses to the health care industry, we feel uniquely qualified to present mattress constructions with these claims."


Durable - While nothing lasts forever, this futon mattress is engineered to keep its shape and resist change in firmness on the edge and other critical sitting and sleeping areas better than any cotton based futon mattress construction.
More resilient top quality cushioning materials.


Futon Overcovers: Standard futon covers were made to fit futons that are 6 inches thick. Standard covers fit our 6-inch thick futons ONLY! Some futon mattresses made with cotton, or cotton and foam, or even innersprings that claim to be 8 or 9" inches thick will still fit inside these standard covers due to the above reasons..but not ours! Our true 8"thick futon mattresses need a true 8" thick cover. If you try to squeeze our futons into a smaller cover it will alter the feel of the futon and make it even harder to bend into the frame. We recommend an 8" box cornered cover!


Single_GripStrip.jpgGrip Strips are also a necessary item for high performance futons…to keep them in place and sit properly!
