Simba Stratos Temperature Regulation Technology
Many of us struggle to keep cool during the night, and that is affecting our sleep. We toss and turn; we flip our pillow, uncover our legs – all because we just want it to be a little bit cooler. As you know, legs sticking underneath the blanket doesn’t really do much as far as temperature regulation goes, so – what do we do?
Fortunately, Simba Sleep decided to tackle this problem and help us cool our heads instead of our feet. They’ve enriched two of their products, including the Simba Hybrid pillow with their patented, space-inspired temperature regulation technology called Stratos. Let’s find out a bit more about this technology and what it offers
What is the Stratos Technology that some Simba products use?
To put it simply, Simba Stratos is a newly designed and patented technology that will help you sleep better by regulating the temperature. So, it is not a cooling technology as many seem to believe. Stratos will also help you get warm if you are cold. It is temperature regulation at its finest.
To better understand how this Stratos new ground-breaking technology came about, we have to understand what it actually does. So, let’s explore that a little bit further.
Astronaut-inspired temperature regulation
The idea behind Stratos is actually pretty ingenious. To develop this technology, Simba’s team of scientists looked into technology that helps astronauts survive and handle drastic temperature changes. If there is anyone that knows how to properly regulate temperature, it is the people that send other people to space. So, Stratos is actually inspired by the brave space travellers and the ones that are allowing them to do so.
Phase Change technology
This astronaut-inspired technology is based on phase change technology. Essentially, Stratos works kind of like the ozone layer that is protecting our planet by keeping our temperature in check. Essentially, just like ozone, the Stratos absorbs all the excess heat and draws it away from your body. However, phase change technology works in both directions. If you place a cold cheek onto a pillow – it will release the absorbed heat to warm you up.
How do you avoid getting hot with Stratos technology?
As you know by now, Simba Stratos is regulating temperature with its phase change technology – it cools down the warm stuff and warms up the cools stuff. Now, when we’re talking about products that are enriched with Stratos, you’ll easily spot the Stratos side. It’s the one with the cyan-blue rim!
Now, whether you want to cover yourself with Stratos or rest your head on it – that is entirely up to you!
What Simba products do use Stratos technology?
As we’ve said in the beginning, Simba has added Stratos temperature-regulating technology to two of their products – the Simba Hybrid Pillow and the Simba Hybrid duvet with Stratos, which we reviewed earlier.
The pillow comes with a removable cotton cover or a pillowcase – however you want to call it. Both sides of the pillowcase are made from cotton. However, only one of them is enriched with the Stratos active temperature regulation. As we’ve mentioned before, the temperature-regulating side is easily identifiable by the cyan-blue rim.
It’s the same thing with the Simba Hybrid Duvet. Both sides of the duvet are made of high-quality cotton fibres, yet only one of them is enriched with the Simba Stratos active temperature regulating technology.
