We’re Here to Help!
We love the All American story of Brooklyn Bedding. A true entrepreneur with grit, vision and a lot of help along the way, John Merwin formed what is now Brooklyn Bedding in 1995. Not in Brooklyn, NY as one might think, but in Phoenix, Arizona (he named the company after his daughter, Brooklyn). Originally a mattress liquidation business, it soon turned to building a mattress and listing it on Amazon, just to see what might happen. Well, it took off and John launched Brooklynbedding.com. A pioneer in many respects, John was one of the original visionaries of a bed-in-a-box mattress packaging and delivery system. John wanted to ensure his beds were known for high quality at a price everyone could afford. Therefore, he took the entire manufacturing process in-house. To this day, all Brooklyn Bedding mattresses are made start-to-finish in their Phoenix factory; many on the assembly team have been making mattresses by hand for decades. They have earned a reputation not only for making one of the leading mattresses in the industry, but for quick delivery, superior customer support and one of the best trial and warranties in the industry.
As a testament to Brooklyn’s commitment to quality, Brooklyn Bedding now manufactures many of the top private label mattress brands on the market. Brooklyn lists 6 models on their website, but they also manufacture brands such as Plank (extra firm) and Dreamfoam. Now 25 years old, Brooklyn is showing no signs of slowing down – in the last two years, Brooklyn Bedding has doubled its production capacity. They have recently completed the buildout of a new 600,000-square-foot factory in Phoenix where even more mattresses can be handcrafted, on demand, and shipped direct to customers’ doors.
Let’s have a closer look at the Titan Plus materials before hopping in the its comfort style.
Titan Plus Construction & Materials
Quilted Top – The cover begins with a 1” layer of quilted, gel memory foam. This cushy material brings you in but is designed to resists body impressions and provides cooling comfort. The gel in the quilt pulls heat away from the body, keeping you cool and dry.
Cooling Gel Coating (upgrade) – The enhanced cooling experience begins as soon as you touch the GlacioTex+ cover. Brooklyn applied cool-to-the-touch phase change material (PCM). PCM are heat activated gel microbeads. Generally, our skin is 91 degrees, however our ideal sleeping skin temperature is 88 degrees. When they come into contact with a temperature greater than 88 degrees they liquify and activate. Gel absorbs heat, so you get that cool-to-the touch feeling. When the temperature reaches 88 degrees, the beads solidify and lessen the heat draw. This helps the Titan Plus mattress regulate your skin temperature at the optimal level – making it very popular with hot sleepers. The weave is also ultra breathable and highly wicking so you stay cool and dry all night long.
TitanFlex – The comfort layer in this firm mattress is 2” of Brooklyn’s densest proprietary TitanFlex foam that provides compression and support. So, what exactly is TitanFlex and what makes it so special? TitanFlex is a latex alternative which provides the pressure relief of a gel foam with the responsiveness of latex. This means it provides the best of both worlds by evenly distributing pressure across the mattress with just the right amount of contouring and responsiveness. The result is exceptional pressure point relief that can help reduce joint and muscle pain. The cooling gel infused within the TitanFlex pulls heat away from the body, keeping you cool all night long. TitanFlex’s open cell structure and overall design enables it to have higher water absorption and greater moisture wicking. This engineering allows moisture to be released from the mattress more quickly, also contributing to a cooler, more comfortable sleep
The Titan Plus support system employs up to 1,032 individually encased 6” TitanCaliber coils directly underneath the transition foam. Brooklyn individually wraps each coil to mitigate any motion transfer in the mattress. This combination allows for exceptional reactivity and motion isolation, minimizing sleep disturbance. Additionally, Brooklyn reinforced the edge with higher caliber perimeter coils to create greater edge support along the sides, head and foot of the bed. The result? A solid, sag-free support system that will last larger sleepers for years to come.
Bottom Support Layer
Underneath the Ascension coils, Brooklyn lays 2″ of high density foam to add further compression support to the mattress and absorb any additional motion.
Tufting is the process where the individual parts of the mattress are either sewn or glued together to prevent slippage. In the Titan Plus’s case, it is a flat bed and the weave is stretched over the foam layers. To keep the bed as flat as possible, the Titan Plus has low level top tufting.
Does Titan Plus Sleep Cool?
YES! We found Titan Plus to offer a neutral temperature control. Being cool at night is all about being dry. Titan Plus accomplishes this through the optional GlacioTex+, multiple gel layers and finally the breathability offered by the core spring base:
- The cover wicks away moisture and enables you to directly feel the cooling properties.
- The gel infused and responsive comfort layer pulls heat from the body (and doesn’t return it!)
- As the mattress is a hybrid, air is able to flow and circulate in-between the dual coil system
Final result – Titan Plus will keep you cool and dry throughout the night allowing your body to get the rest it deserves.
How about Edge Support?
The Titan Plus offers excellent edge support. Brooklyn added ribbing around the edge to strengthen the corners and edges. At the end of the day, the Titan Plus comes with 3″ of supportive and contouring gel foam. That is going to have a little bit of give once you get out to the edge of the bed. That combined with the TitanCaliber coils and the high density support foam helps keep you sleeping all the way to the edge of the bed with no worries.
Endurance Testing – Will Titan Plus Stand the Test of Time?
Titan Plus is one of Brooklyn’s firmest mattresses and is designed to support plus sized individuals. Brooklyn spends a tremendous amount of time stress testing the materials to ensure that reputation. The result? A long lasting bed that can support well over 1,000lbs.
Titan Plus Comfort Style
Firm and flat for plus sized sleepers.
Where most mattresses quickly sag, leave body impressions and then hammocks for the larger sleeper, Titan Plus comes to the rescue. Titan’s hyper responsive, yet incredibly supportive, foams have been welcomed by the larger sleeper looking for a solution that won’t break the bank.
The Titan Plus is primarily geared towards back and stomach sleepers. However, larger side sleepers can get away the Titan. If selecting the optional GlacioTec+ cover, from the moment you touch the cooling cover you feel your skin temperature drop. The three inches of comfort supportive foam begin to mold to the unique pressure points of your body. You definitely sleep “on top” of this mattress. Absolutely now “quicksand” feeling as in most memory foam mattresses. The Titan Plus is quick responding, thanks to the TitanFlex latex hybrid structure that fills in body impressions quickly as you move about.
Immediately you will feel the significant support offered by the 6” TitanCaliber coils to aid in proper spinal alignment. You will feel substantial lumbar support without sacrificing the comfort.
There will be a minimal sink,. For those looking for a more medium-firm feel, or those that have smaller partners that need more comfort, have a look at the Titan Plus Luxe. That is quickly becoming a go-to mattress for couples of different sizes.
The Titan Plus is designed for larger sleepers and, as such, can support up to 300 lbs. It’s hard to find a more supportive mattress in this budget range.
- On Sandman’s Firmness Scale, we rate the Titan Plus a firm 8 out of 10.
- This is designed for back and stomach sleepers.
- Cooling features and air flow will keep you comfortable and dry all evening long.
- Edge support is excellent – the Titan Plus comes with reinforced edges and supportive foams. Sleep confidently all the way to the edge – no sliding off here!
All Titan Plus comfort levels have very good motion isolation. Simply put, you will rarely feel your partner move at night. Whether they are a toss and turner, an early riser or using the facilities, it’s not the bed that will wake you. The high density gel foam by its very nature does not transfer motion. It absorbs energy. Any motion might come from the springs below, but the pocket coil system separates the springs further isolating any motion transfer. If you need total motion isolation, then look more towards the all foam mattresses. However, the design and attention to detail make the Titan Plus as close to no motion as possible.
How Does the Titan Plus Mattress Arrive?
All Brooklyn beds come in a box. It’s crazy to think that a king size Titan Plus with powerful springs, dense foams can be compressed, but it can. And, with no sacrifice to quality and durability. Some people ask if compressing the springs will hurt their integrity. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Springs are actually shipped compressed all over the world (to save space). The springs integrity is damaged if they are pulled excessively or bent out of position. But, the way Brooklyn compresses its mattresses, they keep their shape and strength. The box arrives via Fedex or UPS from their Phoenix, AZ factory. Simply unbox the mattress. Rest it on the bed frame and remove the plastic wrapping and the bed will decompress before your eyes. You can begin sleeping on the bed and enjoying a restful night sleep that same day.
What’s Brooklyn's Return Policy? Can I exchange my Titan Plus for either another model?
Brooklyn offers a 120 night trial period. You can either return it for a 100% refund, or you can adjust the comfort level with a free mattress topper during the trial period. You may also exchange it for a different mattress and pay/refund any price difference. Here’s how the system works:
- The trial begins when you RECEIVE the mattress (the FedEx delivery day).
- You can sleep on it for 120 nights. As there can be a slight break-in period, Brooklyn asks that you not initiate a return during the first 30 days.
- If it’s not the mattress of your dreams, reach out Brooklyn at [email protected], via phone, email or chat (on their website), provide your name and order number and let them know if you wish to RETURN or EXCHANGE. Either way, there are no questions asked!
- Returns: In most cases, Brooklyn will request that you have the mattress donated. Many of the charity foundations that are available offer a local pickup service. In the event that you are having trouble getting this coordinated, please let Brooklyn know and they will offer additional assistance. Once donated, you will receive a full refund. If you are having trouble, reach out to Brooklyn and they will be happy to assist.
- Full 100% refunds (no fees!!) are issued within 3-4 business days of the pick-up.
- Exchanges: For an exchange, Brooklyn will send the new mattress to your home BEFORE the old one is removed so you’ll never be without a bed to sleep on.
Brooklyn doesn’t stop there! After the trial period ends, Brooklyn offers a 10 year warranty.
