Equipping a fire station’s sleeping quarters is a tall order. Everything needs to be safe and sturdy under the heavy daily use of firefighters coming and going. The personnel working in the station cover a wide range of heights, weights, and build, requiring considerable flexibility in bed and mattress design and use. To top it all off, everything must stay under budget during financial times that can be tight at best. That’s where ESS Universal’s fire station mattresses and bunks come to the rescue!
Long Service Life
Proper use and routine maintenance are a big reason why your crew’s trucks can log 20 years or more of service, but nothing can keep a substandard vehicle on the road for very long. The same is true of your bunk beds and mattresses. Cleaning and upkeep can only help so much; you must purchase quality. Instead, you are looking to fill the bunk room with beds and mattresses that will give you years of worry-free service even when crews are jumping in and out several times a night. The cool, comforting foam mattress gets everyone back to sleep as quickly as possible so that they can be rested up for the next call.
Allergen-Free Sleeping Quarters
One of the most common concerns for multi-user bedding products these days is the growth and support of allergens. Allergy problems often result from being outdoors in pollen or from the natural growth of mold in damp spaces. With a full crew showering two or three times a day, the presence of damp equipment and laundry, and several hours of open bay doors each day, it can be very easy to get high humidity levels in a station, triggering mold growth and creating allergy symptoms for firefighters. Our hypoallergenic mattresses resist all types of allergens, keeping beds comfortable and restful.
Another quite common issue in shared bedding is bedbugs. One occupant picks up the pest elsewhere and leaves it in the bunk, sharing it with the next occupant. The outbreak simply progresses from there. Our mattresses are bedbug resistant, constructed of materials that do not support the normal nesting and egg-laying habits of this troublesome pest. This makes it much less likely that an infestation will develop, and our covers isolate the actual foam from any potential outbreaks while proving easy to clean if bedbugs are detected.
Simple, Effective Cleaning
The next alarm is always seconds away. That’s why it is so important to minimize the time used on routine maintenance tasks. At the same time, the growing awareness of cancer risk to firefighters makes it more and more important to clean garments, personal protective equipment, and bedding as frequently as necessary to minimize the presence of carcinogens in those porous surfaces. Good fire station mattresses should be sealed to keep the interior foam clean and dry inside a waterproof cover that is easy to remove, wash, and replace. Our three-sided zipper makes this kind of cleaning possible even as you bounce from call to call.
