Open Cell Memory Foam

Open cell” memory foam promotes air flow and relieves pressure

Billions of balloon-like cells with tiny air passages in and around them allow air to escape when pressure is applied.

Broyhill® Sensura™ Memory Foam Mattresses are made with “open cell” memory foam, which promotes air flow and relieves pressure. Open cell Memory Foam contains billions of balloon-like cells with tiny air passages in and around them where air can escape when pressure is applied. When you lie down air escapes from the compressed cells and is spread to adjoining cells. The foam “melts” under you to provide long term contouring comfort and support. Open cell Memory Foam is highly permeable while still retaining the temperature sensitivity that makes Memory Foam uniquely conforming to the body. Open cell memory foam is also considered more durable than closed cell memory foam.

A closed cell memory foam mattress will “push back” when you lie down because the air in the sealed foam cells has nowhere to go. Closed cell foams gain compression resistance by squeezing trapped air pockets in their closed cells. Closed cell memory foam beds can be considered less durable, as the closed cells have the ability to "pop" over time, causing body impressions and dips in the mattress.
