Questions and Tips regarding our Mattresses:
Question: Does your mattress come in double?
Answer: No - Double would be too bulky and 2 persons would need to roll the mattress.
Tip: Use a double bed fitted sheet over 2 single mattresses.
Question: Will the mattress thickness of 60mm support my weight?
Answer: Yes - Remember that we use solid high density foam in our mattresses.
Tip: Make sure your mattress is placed on a relatively flat surface.
Question: How can your mattress be puncture proof?
Answer: The solid high density foam inside is the secret.
Tip: Make sure to use the securing strap if the outer covering is punctured or torn.
Question: How can I roll my mattress smaller to fit in the bag?
Answer: Practise makes perfect - and the bag is generously oversized.
Tip: While rolling squeeze the air out as much as possible and use your knees/weight.
Question: Do you make custom sizes and at what price?
Answer: Not at the moment - our New Size is now longer and wider!
Question: With what must I lubricate my mattresses plug?
Answer: Use lubricant such as vaseline, silicone spray etc.
(a dry plug may cause the grommit to pull out and get lost!)
Question: Are there agents/shops selling Carma Quip mattresses?
Answer: We manufacture and distribute directly from our workshop in Durbanville only.
This ensures that our clients pay the best price and get the best service!
Question: What is meant by not storing the mattress rolled for long periods?
Answer: Any high density foam will take strain being rolled and compressed over time.
Tip: If possible store the mattress inflated when not in use.
Question: Do you manufacture the mattresses in other colours?
Answer: We have experimented with many other materials/colours and found the camo
to be the strongest and longest lasting.
