CertiPUR-US® is a prestigious certification for flexible polyurethane foams used in mattresses in the United States. This certification ensures that the foam meets strict safety, health, and environmental standards. Key criteria for CertiPUR-US® certification include:

  • No ozone depleters.
  • Absence of PBDEs, TCEP, TDBPP, TDCPP, and TEPA flame retardants.
  • Free from heavy metals like mercury and lead.
  • Formaldehyde-free.
  • No phthalates regulated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
  • Low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) emissions (less than 0.5 ppm).

Frequently Asked Questions About CertiPUR-US

For those interested in understanding more about the foam used in DLX Mattresses, proudly made and sold in the USA.

Q: What is CertiPUR-US?

A: CertiPUR-US® is a certification program established in 2008 by a nonprofit organization in the U.S. It was initiated to address concerns about imported foams containing potentially harmful chemicals. The program certifies that flexible polyurethane foam in home furnishings, including mattresses, complies with rigorous standards for content, emissions, and durability, based on tests conducted by independent, accredited laboratories.

Q: What is CertiPUR-US® certified foam?

A: Foam that is CertiPUR-US® certified has been rigorously tested to meet specific criteria for emissions, content, performance, and durability. This includes being made without harmful ozone depleters, certain flame retardants, heavy metals, formaldehyde, and regulated phthalates. Additionally, it has low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) emissions, enhancing indoor air quality.

Q: How can I confirm if a mattress contains CertiPUR-US certified foam?

A: CertiPUR-US maintains an up-to-date listing on their website. DLX Mattress, registered with CertiPUR-US, verifies that our foam comes from certified producers. You can find our registration and verify our compliance on the CertiPUR-US website.

Q: If the foam is CertiPUR-US® certified, does that mean it is made without flame retardants?

A: Foams certified by CertiPUR-US are made without several specific Tris flame retardants: TCEP, TDBPP, TDCPP, or TEPA. The certification also prohibits a range of additional FRs, which you can find in the Technical Guidelines.

Q: CertiPUR-US certifies foam to be “low” in emissions. I see ads that claim “no” emissions. Isn’t it better to have “no” emissions and “no” off-gassing?

A: The concept of "no" emissions is extremely rare and not typically applicable to most materials — even your body off-gasses to some extent. Products made with CertiPUR-US® certified foam are assured to have low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) emissions, enhancing indoor air quality. Specifically, these foams have emissions of less than 0.5 parts per million. This rigorous testing by accredited laboratories ensures the foam meets strict criteria for content and indoor emissions. For more detailed information, you can refer to the complete Technical Guidelines on the CertiPUR-US website.

Q: Is ongoing certification required for foam producers?

A: Yes. Foam producers are required to undergo certification procedures every six months in the first year and annually thereafter to maintain their certification for each type of foam.

Q: Does CertiPUR-US certify entire mattresses?

A: No, CertiPUR-US only certifies flexible polyurethane foam, not whole mattresses or companies. Foam manufacturers hold the certification and can pass on this assurance to their customers, such as DLX Mattress, who incorporate certified foam in their products.

Q: How can people be sure they're buying a DLX Mattress with certified foam?

A: All DLX Mattresses exclusively use CertiPUR-US® certified foam, ensuring top quality and safety. While there is no mandatory labeling requirement, consumers can verify the use of certified foam in products by checking the CertiPUR-US website.

Q: Are products with certified foam always labeled?

A: Not necessarily. Although DLX and other companies using CertiPUR-US certified foam may use the program's name and logo, they are not required to label each product. The absence of a label doesn't mean the foam isn't certified. Consumers should refer to the CertiPUR-US website for verification.

Q: Does certified foam contain fiberglass?

A: No, CertiPUR-US certified foam does not include fiberglass. Some manufacturers use fiberglass in mattress components to meet flammability standards, but DLX Mattresses do not contain any fiberglass.
