Quick Overview

The Plank from Brooklyn Bedding is a flippable mixed foam mattress . One side features two inches (2″) of gel-infused TitanFlex polyfoam; this side is considered ‘Firm.’ The other side has seven inches (7″) of high-density polyfoam; this side is considered ‘Extra Firm.’

Additionally, both sides have quilted top layers for extra padding; the ‘Firm’ side has one and a half inches (1.5″) of quilted material, while the ‘Extra Firm’ side has a quilted layer measuring three-quarters of an inch (.75″). The mattress also has a breathable cotton-polyester cover that is ideal for hot sleepers.

The Plank is one of the firmest mattresses on the market today. Both sides of the bed are suitable for anyone who prefers exceptionally firm surfaces. As a result, the mattress is suitable for many stomach sleepers and people in the heavy weight group (more than 230 pounds). The Plank has a below-average price-point compared to other foam beds, and Brooklyn Bedding offers a 120-night sleep trial and 10-year warranty for the mattress.

CATEGORY RATING WHAT USERS ARE SAYING
Durability VERY GOOD

WHAT USERS ARE SAYING:The Plank Mattress has a longer-than-average lifespan; this is typical for firmer mattresses, which are less susceptible to sagging than their softer counterparts.

Motion Isolation VERY GOOD

WHAT USERS ARE SAYING:Like other all-foam beds, the Plank absorbs and minimizes motion transfer to a noticeable extent, making it a good choice for couples.

Off-gassing VERY GOOD

WHAT USERS ARE SAYING:The Plank may off-gass when new, but odors generally dissipate in a matter of days and long-term problems have not been reported.

Conforming GOOD

WHAT USERS ARE SAYING:The Plank does not conform very much, even for heavier individuals.

Sex VERY GOOD

WHAT USERS ARE SAYING:The Plank is quite firm so not really responsive as much as hard compared to most softer all-foam beds.

Temperature Neutrality VERY GOOD

WHAT USERS ARE SAYING:The Plank sleeps fairly cool compared to other all-foam beds, due in part to its breathable cotton-poly cover.

Edge Support VERY GOOD

WHAT USERS ARE SAYING:The Plank offers stronger edge support than most of its all-foam competitors.

Noise VERY GOOD

WHAT USERS ARE SAYING:The Plank produces virtually no noise when bearing weight.

The flippable Plank mattress has ‘Firm’ and ‘Extra Firm’ sides. As you can see, the mattress has earned positive ratings from heavier individuals and stomach sleepers – two groups that tend to prefer firmer beds. The Plank is 11.5 inches thick, making it a good option for sleepers who prefer mattresses with average thickness profiles.

Our testing process found Plank mattresses should also be great for you if…

  • You are looking for a mattress with a below-average price-point
  • You are a ‘hot sleeper’ looking for a mattress with good temperature neutrality
  • You want a foam mattress that offers minimal conforming
  • Your firmness preferences fluctuate from night to night

Warranty

  2. Warranty coverage begins on the date of purchase. Brooklyn Bedding will, at its sole option, repair or replace mattresses with defects for as long as the warranty is valid.
  3. Warranty coverage is contingent on proper foundational support. Per Brooklyn Bedding: ‘Brooklyn Bedding mattresses have been designed to be used on foundations with solid support with little or no give. This includes slatted wood or metal foundations with slats no more than 4? apart, wood or metal box foundations, and solid wood or metal platforms. Substitution or use of improper foundations such as old box springs (5+ years or more) without solid support, slatted wood or metal foundations with slats more than 4? apart, will void your mattress warranty, and all other warranties expressed or implied.’
  4. The warranty will cover the following defects:
    • Sagging or body indentations that measure one inch (1″) or deeper.
    • Defects in the mattress that cause the material to split or crack.
  5. The warranty will not cover the following:
    • Sagging or indentations that do not measure one inch (1″) or deeper, normal increases in softness of the mattress material, or normal decreases in shape recovery. These issues are all considered standard wear and tear.
    • Stains, burns, and other types of physical damage that occur due to owner misuse, improper cleaning, or inadequate foundational support.
    • Defects that occur after the mattress was not removed from its packaging within 60 nights.
  6.  This warranty is exclusively offered to original owners who purchase their Plank from Brooklyn Bedding or an authorized retailer. Those who buy or acquire their mattress from the original owner or a non-authorized retailer will not qualify for warranty coverage.
