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.
Read on to learn more about the Plank Mattress. Below you’ll find sleeper and performance ratings, information about delivery and return policies, and other important details about the bed.
Based on our customer feedback, Plank mattresses have received the following grades among sleepers of different weights and preferred sleep positions. Please note that these ratings are subjective, and that everyone has varying experiences on different mattresses. Sleeper comfort and spinal support are the most important factors when it comes to selecting a mattress.
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

The sleep trial begins on the date of delivery.
One sleep trial is available to households per calendar year.

Brooklyn Bedding offers a 10-year limited warranty on all mattresses.
This warranty is entirely nonprorated.
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.
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.’
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.
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.
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.

How Does the Plank Compare to Other Beds?

The Plank is a flippable, all-foam mattress that offers ‘Firm’ and ‘Extra Firm’ surfaces. It is made for sleepers who prefer minimal conforming and firmer-than-average surfaces. The mattress is very supportive; it also isolates motion well and produces no noise when bearing weight. However, it may not be suitable for sleepers who prefer softer mattresses that conform very closely.
