Sterling Endura III™ Waterbed PVC
Sterling Endura III™ waterbed PVC was developed exclusively for Sterling Sleep Systems to meet all recognized performance and health standards established for waterbed vinyl in the US and in the European Community. We certify that Endura III contains less than 75ppm cadmium and meets all recognized limitations regarding heavy metal content.
In manufacturing, and particularly when manufacturing waterbeds, material quality governs product excellence. No matter how skilled the fabricator a waterbed can be no better than the material it is made from. Endura III is formulated with the finest resins and plasticizers available for the application. We engineered Endura III to be the best piece of material possible.
Endura III™ significantly exceeds the California Bureau of home furnishings performance standards. A key indicator of material excellence is low temperature performance “cold crack test” results. Over the last 20 years we learned that low temperature performance is an important indicator of overall material formulation stability, not just a measure of how well the product will survive shipping during winter months. The California Bureau of Home Furnishings standards required waterbed material to pass a –20 F test, we engineered Endura III to exceed –35 degree F. We are not aware of any other waterbed material that equals this standard currently.
We won’t share the specifics of the Endura III vinyl formulation, however we will tell you, you can’t buy better material for making a durable, long lasting, quality waterbed.
Why Sterling Flotation?
We have the track record and experience to build a superior waterbed, not to mention 11 patents. We are one of the largest domestic US producers of waterbeds with 20 years experience and sales of more than 1,000,000 units to satisfied clients in over 30 countries. We have survived in an industry flooded with imports by offering value and quality.
Sterling produces several outstanding innerspring and latex foam mattresses yet many members of our staff sleep on waterbeds. Here is why.
For those of us that have owned one of the 20 million waterbeds sold, you already understand that a waterbed delivers the same level of support and comfort from the first day it is installed until the last. A properly filled waterbed contours to each sleeper’s particular shape and size distributing weight over more area of your body. When you reduce pressure points you reduce tossing and turning caused when sleepers move to restore blood circulation to parts of the body where pressure has caused capillary occlusion, where the smallest blood vessels are closed off by the weight of your body.
Waterbeds do such a good job distributing support and reducing pressure points they are have been used for 30 years to help with the prevention of bed sores for bed ridden patients.
For the best of both worlds, see our 8500 Flotation bed system. The 8500 is the marriage of two outstanding sleep technologies, flotation provides adjustable support and a choice of Firm Latex or Plush memory foam overlays are placed on top of the waterbed mattress to distribute support for unequaled luxury
