Quick Summary

The Plank from Brooklyn Bedding is a flippable mixed foam mattress. Beneath a quilted memory foam cover lies 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 comes with the option of a cooling top panel cover for an added price.

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.

What Type of Sleeper is Best Suited to a Plank Mattress?

Based on our customer feedback, the Plank has 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.

Back
Stomach

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.

  • 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.
