BeSafe Stretch B

BeSafe, Hall 10.2, Stand C08

The BeSafe Stretch B is totally developed from a sustainability perspective, according the principles of the so called 'value hill'. The lifespan is expanded to 15 years, where most carseats have a max. lifetime of 7-8 years. This is done by using durable materials like Aluminium which is not subject to corrosion and EPP, which is a very tough and durable foam type. The product is developed to get repairs for parts which can wear and can be refurbished after a usage period of 7 years to get it secured and fresh again for a second usage period. Where possible recycled materials are used, for example for the polyester fabrics. When the product is at the end of its lifespan, the product can be disassembled and different materials can be recycled.

Träumeland GmbH, Hall 10.1, Stand D10/E11

Developed for the future

With our new "Wind" mattress, we are taking another step towards sustainability as a climate-neutral company.

For the first time, it has been possible to develop a mattress core that is 50% produced from raw materials that already come from the circular economy. State-of-the-art techniques of upcycling and recycling are applied to save raw materials and extract new recyclables from used foam products. Whether by adding value to tailor residues (composite foam) or dissolving foams into their raw material base (polyol) and using them again in Orbis foam. The "sleep safety" mattress cover is made with 10% TENCEL™ x REFIBRA™ fibers obtained from recycled textiles.

Thus, our mattress "Wind" not only provides comfort, but also makes an active contribution to environmental protection through the use of recycled materials.
