Electric Bed Fitted Sheets

Bedding for Electric Beds

Getting the right fitted sheets for your new electric bed is just as important as selecting the right bed and mattress.

We recommend our jersey cotton sheets that are fully elasticated all the way round so they stay firmly attached to the mattress when you operate the electric folding action of the bed.

They stretch with the movement and they retain their original shape when the mattress is laid flat once again.

No need for ironing, just wash as often as you like and they will look as good as new for years to come.

Wings and Flaps

Many other fitted sheets that are on the market, especially from America, use a standard type sheet that has large wings or flaps that hang down the side when the mattress is lifted up to the reading position.

This looks untidy and does not really offer that best solution as the extra material can get in the way once you return the mattress to its original sleeping position.

Types of adjustable beds

The health benefits of this type of bed are well documented, they offer maximum support and aid posture control. Two types are available, a manual version and the deluxe electric type.

Most types of adjustable beds even have the capability of memory settings to store frequently used positions. Other benefits of these beds include easy assembly or disassembly to store them when not in use.

90cm x 200cm Egyptian Cotton Fitted Sheets

Most of the electric beds we see in the UK do not conform to the UK standard measurements.

They are now very similar to the European sizes in length but are still not as wide.

The most popular size is the 90cm x 200cm mattress or Single Long as we now call them in the UK.

You can also get the space saving 75cm x 200cm mattress which can also be put together to make a king size bed which measures 150cm x 200cm.

Egyptian cotton sheet alternative

We do offer an an Egyptian cotton fitted sheet that measures 90cm x 200cm, they are made from a 400 thread count fabric, although they are sumptuous to sleep on they are not as effective as the Jersey cotton sheets as they cannot stretch when the mattress is folded.

You only get this unique feature from knitted cotton sheets which makes it the ideal choice.

What is Jersey cotton?

So what is Jersey cotton and is it as good as standard cotton or even as nice to sleep on as Egyptian cotton?

100% combed cotton jersey knit which stretches in all directions and moves with the contours of your body and the mattress. Knitted fabrics retain their shape after being stretched making it more suitable than normal woven bed linen.

There is not warp or weft or thread count to worry about, meaning there is no restriction on the amount of stretch that can be achieved, so the fitted sheets will not ping off the corner of the mattress or want to rip or tear under some pressure.

Knitted cotton is also very soft and sumptuous to sleep on, the soft fibres are very light and fluffy and offer good levels of thermal protection and are also good in the summer as the cotton absorbs moisture, which helps your body maintain a healthy temperature while you sleep.

This is especially good if your electric bed has a memory foam mattress as the one down side of this type of mattress is heat build up. The fabric also contours or moulds itself to the shape of your body just like the memory foam and relaxes back to shape in the same way after use.

Extra Long Fitted Sheets

90cm x 200cm Jersey Cotton Fitted Sheets

We are increasingly getting asked for more and more 90cm x 200cm and 75cm x 200cm fitted sheets and mattress protectors.

I’m sure that’s because more and more bed manufacturers are producing extra long single beds.

These European sized mattresses are an extra 10cm longer than standard and single bunk sized mattresses that are manufactured in the UK.

The beds are sometimes electric where the user can operate the folding part of bed, great for night time reading or just for people who can suffer from backache or a decrease in mobility.

Often the 90cm x 200cm mattress is part of the much larger super king size bed where the mattresses are split in two, offering an orthopaedic mattress with standard versions to suit the two bed users.

These beds can be very expensive, both the 75cm x 200cm and the 90cm x 200cm options come in the extra length so getting good quality sheets and mattress protectors for them can be very hard to come by so we have developed a range of different styles and fabrics for you to choose from.

Jersey Cotton

One solution is our Jersey Cotton sheets which are fully elastic all the way round, they are supersoft and very robust.

Jersey cotton is very supple and can stretch and regain its shape without damaging the fabric. This type of fitted sheet is excellent for use on the electrically operated and folding style beds.

The fabric moves with the mechanism and stretches to suit the shape of the body, once the bed is lay flat the sheets just go back to their original shape and the elastic sides stop the fabric from coming of the mattresses.

These are a must if you have bought this type of bed and will give you many years of lasting use, fully machine washable with a full 5 years manufacturers guarantee.

Super king split beds and luxury

90cm x 200cm and 75cm x 200cm Egyptian Cotton Fitted Sheets

If you have the super king split mattresses and you are looking for our superior range of Egyptian cotton sheets with the excellent 400 thread count.

Available in white and ivory with either a 12” fitted box depth or the extra deep fitted sheets with a generous 15” fitted box depth.

Made entirely in Egypt using extra long staple single ply yarns for increased strength and comfort.

Super soft and silky with a soft sateen finish, these sheets are the very best you can buy, the manufacturer is so confident of the quality that they give them a 7 year guarantee.

The quality is as you would expect from the finest hotels, mercerised and sanforised with an easy care finishing ensures that the sheets look as good as new after every wash and require the least amount of ironing of any good quality cotton sheet.

Specialist sheets and mattress protectors

Coolmax Fitted Sheets and Mattress Protectors

To complete the range we have some very special sheets and mattress protectors to fit the 75cm x 200cm and 90cm x 200cm beds.

Our Coolmax bedding range offers the user relief from night sweats and hot flushes during the night.

When it comes to wicking moisture away from the body, Coolmax is up to 5 times more effective than any other natural fabric such as cotton or silk.

Manufactured by Dupont this special fabric is soft and silky to the touch and feels superb to sleep on.

This will help keep you dry during the night and allow your body to cool down naturally while you sleep allowing you to get a good night’s sleep even in the hottest of summer nights.

They provide a complete barrier and substantially reduce heat levels allowing you to rest easily.
