Packed with 11 inches of gel based foams along with the 2 inches of Sealy's top end ComfortSense Premium Memory Foam, the Sealy Posturepedic Plus Foam Albany Firm is a dense, durable mattress built to provide firm comfort while not sacrificing support in the slightest. A Firm Overall Feel As the name would suggest, the Albany Firm is a firm feeling mattress while not feeling hard. A comfort scale rating of a 3 indicates this mattress allows you to sink in just a bit and then supports you with a solid core. No Filler Foam Not all mattresses are created equal. Plenty of mattresses use non upgraded foams to help achieve the level of comfort desired by the manufacturer. Sealy went above and beyond that industry practice for this collection of hybrids. The only foams you will find in this collection, including the Albany, are gel based or premium memory foams. These foams provide more pressure point relief, better durability over time, and overall a higher quality product. SealyChill on the Cover Other Sealy mattresses feature the SealyChill cooling technology only in the foam layers packed lower in the mattress. While that does provide some cooling, by having an application of SealyChill directly on the surface of the mattress you will immediately notice the cooling effects as soon as you lie down. Built for Adjustable Bases Being built entirely from these quality foams, the Albany is flexible and durable, perfect for the head and foot articulation found in the Ease, Ergo, or Ergo Extend. Enhancing your sleeping environment to be able to lift your head, find weightlessness in the zero G setting, or soothing your aching muscles with the massage, this mattress harmonizes with any adjustable base on the market today.
