Review of Silentnight Airmax 500 mattress topper

Silentnight Airmax 500 mattress topper

Silentnight Airmax 500 mattress topper is a hypoallergenic topper that increases the free circulation of air and leads to a perfect night's sleep. This topper benefits people who have a sensitive respiratory system the most. But, due to its high comfortability and warmth, it is well suitable for everybody who looks for better sleeping experience, from small children to the elderly. This topper mainly aims toward providing fresher, warmer and more comfortable sleeping environment.

You can gain enough support for your spine from this topper, and it will transform your mattress into a comfortable sleeping surface. Silentnight Airmax 500 Topper is a great choice for people who are very sensitive to cold since it increases and maintains warmth. So, in general, this topper is a nice bedroom addition for the colder months of the year.

Review of Silentnight Airmax 800 mattress topper

This 8cm deep mattress topper has a dual layer construction, which means that will further affect your mattress to deteriorate very little. In addition, the dual layer construction is something you will feel as soon as you lie down on the Silentnight Airmax 800 Mattress Topper because it will give you softness and comfort. It should not be missed to mention how much the dual layer construction affects the breathability, as it allows air to circulate. The air will circulate freely around you and this topper will not allow you to be too hot, nor will the mattress topper get an unpleasant odour.

Also, you won’t smell chemical odour once you open it because it is breathable. Silentnight Airmax 800 mattress topper has elasticated corner straps that are very easy to adjust. Once you fit them around your mattress, the topper will stand completely stable and you won't even know that you actually have an extra layer over the mattress, but you will just feel comfort and other features. Corner straps are suitable for the depth of the mattress up to 30cm. The topper is hypoallergenic as well and you can wash it in a washing machine easily.

Materials

Testing Silentnight Airmax 500 mattress topper

These mattress toppers are made of polyester with highly breathable layers. This material can be washed at low temperatures, which is a big plus for this product. The material is soft, pleasant, easy to maintain, doesn’t absorb odours and it’s highly hypoallergenic. This material is a great choice for everyone who has problems with allergies. Silentnight Airmax 800 Topper is made with a special design that provides certain hollowness in-between layers. The designers used hollow fibre construction to enhance the breathability of the material.

Support (both middle and edge)

Silentnight Airmax 500 Topper provides medium support, it keeps the firmness over time, but it is a softer type of toppers. For people who enjoy tender, gentle support, this topper is a perfect choice. You can combine it with foam pillows if you need firmer support for your neck but prefer the softer support in general. So, if your mattress doesn’t provide you with enough support and it’s not so comfy, this topper should solve the problem perfectly. The same goes for 800 topper – with the difference that it gives even more support.

Comfort

When it comes to comfort, both Silentnight Airmax toppers will meet your expectations if you don’t require special support for your spine. The toppers have an ability to make any mattress more comfortable, it’s soft and sleeping on it it’s very pleasant. But, these toppers aren't designed for people who have serious problems with back or neck pain. So, if you don’t enjoy softer sleeping surface, be sure to combine these toppers with special, firmer mattress. But in any way, either of these will provide you with the comfortably refreshing night's sleep.

Bounce

This feature is again one of the big upsides of these two products. The toppers keep their flexibility over time and regular washing doesn’t spoil this feature. But, the topper isn’t particularly firm, so, again, the bounce feature is quite moderate. So, the bounce feature can be influenced by the type of mattress, also. You can use these toppers with a mattress with stronger bounce feature if you prefer this feature to be more enhanced. This way you would get both, better bounce and more comfortability. (Because mattresses that have enhanced bounce feature tend to be firmer and react differently upon pressure.)

Breathability

This feature is certainly Silentnight Airmax Toppers' best feature. The two toppers may be too soft or too warm for some people, but there is no questioning its breathability. The toppers' design allows completely undisrupted air-flow through the layers thus providing high breathability. So, this is for sure the No1 quality that these toppers have.

Smell

Silentnight Airmax toppers don't have strong chemical smell upon the unpacking. Plus, due to their high breathability, these toppers don't absorb moisture and odours, so its pretty easy to keep them fresh. Since the toppers have a neutral smell themselves, and its easy to clean them, you shouldn’t have any issues concerning the smell. Instead, you can expect your topper feeling fresh all the time.

Durability & maintenance

Silentnight Airmax 500 & Airmax 800 are long-lasting quality products, but the proper maintenance does influence their durability. The toppers should remain in the completely unspoiled state for an at least 2-year period. You can prolong this period if you carefully follow washing instructions and keep the topper stain-free. Although, some people did notice the decrease in support after the first year, this does not mean you shouldn't go for this topper. Especially as the maintenance is super easy – you can wash these at 40 C degrees.

Price – quality ratio

The toppers come in a quite reasonable price range that depends on the size. These two offer a deeper sleep and a hypoallergenic sleeping environment with very undependable maintenance, so, the price-quality ratio is great. Since the topper can transform any mattress into comfortable one, you can say that the price is quite sensible, even low. Especially when we consider these are machine washable and not prone to shrinking.

Conclusion

When we compare Silentnight Airmax 500 and Silentnight Airmax 800 mattress toppers, we can say safely that the latter provides more of an additional comfort for the existing mattress and better durability. Thanks to its unique design, Airmax 500 can be washed many times in a washing machine and it won't shrink or get damaged. Therefore, if you want an extra durability for a bit higher price tag, we highly recommend Silentnight Airmax 800 mattress topper.

Silentnight Airmax toppers are a good investment in general because it can make any type of mattress a more comfortable one. These are hypoallergenic and demand quite easy and cheap maintenance. Since they have high durability, the price of the toppers is quite reasonable. All in all, these can be a great addition to your bedroom, it will meet your expectations regarding the breathability, comfort and fresh and healthy, hypoallergenic sleeping environment.

As a CPD certified Sleep Consultant I know how important sleep is. And as a combination sleeper, I have found it difficult to get products to suit my sleep style. I have more than 2 years product testing experience with The Sleep Advisors which means I have slept on, with and under more than 500 products with varying degrees of success. This is added to more than 2 years experience as a product reviewer for Closer, Heat and Grazia magazines, so I've got a rigorous process. I love sharing my sleep testimonials with our readers and hearing their experiences too.
