Many questionable chemicals are use in the production of plastic film commonly referred to as PVC’s. PVC’s contain chemicals such as Phthalates. Plastic film is the covering that is used for the majority of crib mattresses made in North America. Jupiter was the first manufacturer to introduce a vinyl free mattress 15 years ago which was long before toxic chemicals became a widespread concern to parents who were looking for safer natural and organic materials. Our mattress selections are made in knitted fabrics that help maintain a healthy temperature for Baby in Organic, Natural and Thermo Regulating covers. Many experts now believe that overheating can be the #1 cause of SIDS.
What does "Organic" mean? In our industry it means that mattress components made from natural raw materials, like cotton, are grown without chemicals and pesticides in an eco-friendly way. Usually this refers to the cover on a mattress and sometimes to padding materials. It does not apply to components made of steel or polyurethane foam.
All our organic materials are certified to the G.O.T.S standard. This is the world's leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibers. It defines high-level environmental criteria along the entire organic textiles supply chain and requires compliance with social criteria as well. Only textile products that contain a minimum of 70% organic fibers can become G.O.T.S certified.click me for G.O.T.S site
No more cold, brittle and sweaty hot Vinyl!! Many questionable chemicals are used in the production of plastic film commonly referred to as P.V.C. PVC contains chemicals such as Phthalates. Plastic film is the covering still used for the majority of crib mattresses made in North America today, Jupiter was the first manufacturer to introduce a vinyl free mattress over 15 years ago long before toxic chemicals were a widespread concern to parents looking for safer natural and organic materials, Our mattresses are covered in knitted fabrics that help maintain a healthy temperature for Baby in Organic, Natural and Thermo Regulating materials. Many experts now believe that overheating is one of the leading causes of SIDS.
Oeko-Tex is a compliance certification widely used in the Textile Industry. The main focus of this is to make sure there are no harmful substances, such as Formaldehyde, Carcinogenic and Allergenic Colorants and Pesticides, present in textiles. The fabrics used by Jupiter Industries are tested and certified to meet standard #100 which focuses on products used for baby. Oeko-Tex
All components we use are tested by leading laboratories that are specialists in their field. Our product claims are verified by 3rd party testing facilities.
S.G.S is a renowned global laboratory that tests for V.O.C.'s. V.O.C.'s are Volatile Organic Compounds emitted by chemicals used in polyurethane foam, vinyls, household paints and cleaners. At Jupiter we took on the challenge of making a sleep system FREE of V.O.C's.It's a first in our industry and an accomplishment we are proud of. To date this achievement hasn't been duplicated by any other baby mattress company. S.G.S
Jupiter was the very first mattress company to take a step towards a healthy nursery by making mattresses free of Polyurethane Foam and Vinyl, due to the off gassing, flammability and potentially harmful Volatile Organic Compounds (V.O.C's) – found in the components.
Jupiter was the very first mattress company to promote a healthier nursery by eliminating all polyurethane foam, vinyl and flame retardant chemicals from the manufacturing process. These components contain potentially harmful Volatile Organic Compounds (V.O.C.'s) which off-gas into baby's sleep environment. V.O.C's have been linked to a large number of health and developmental issues.
Foam, regardless of whether it is Soy based foam, Memory foam, Certi-Pur Foam or Latex, still uses chemicals as its main component and by its very nature is a highly flammable material that can emit V.O.C's. V.O.C.'s are emitted by many common household cleaners and paints and there is a growing opinion among scientists and health care providers that even trace levels of V.O.C's can be harmful. Jupiter Industries was the first manufacturer to eliminate polyurethane foam from their mattresses by developing an inert core of 100% polyester (Eco Dura Bond). Our core is totally V.O.C free and flame retardant without chemicals.
Overheating and the re-breathing of carbon dioxide are top of mind issues for SIDS prevention advocates so it only makes sense to look for a mattress that addresses these concerns. At Jupiter we make a special line of mattresses covered with knitted fabrics that are breathable. The design and weave of our fabrics help keep baby's sleep environment rich in air flow.These materials are safer than putting your baby to sleep on a "non-porous surface like vinyl or fabrics coated to be waterproof". Select models also have our NEW Aria fabric with an open weave construction on the borders that helps circulate air around baby for increased freshness. Breath ability is an important feature of our "Health Assure" collection which uses our NEW Eco Dura Bond Breath Easy patented core that has a cross layered design promoting better air flow.
Water and Stain Repellent
All our crib mattresses are finished with a special process that helps prevent stains certified by Oeko-Tex to be toxin free. The added value of this type of finish versus non-porous coatings is that the fabrics are still breathable and fresher for baby to sleep on. Many parents still choose to use a waterproof mattress pad to protect their mattress investment so it can be used when baby grows to the toddler stage. Jupiter makes a wide range of mattress pads for all their styles. They can be viewed by clicking here!
Parents want to know that their baby's mattress is fire retardant but do not want the chemicals commonly used to make it so. At Jupiter we believe the best form of fire protection is the one that uses no fire retardant chemicals. Our mattresses incorporate a new engineered material made from inert polyester like the materials used in firefighters' uniforms. And by eliminating toxic and volatile foam, our mattresses comply to current flame retardant standards without flame retardant chemicals.
All our mattresses provide the firm support now recommended by pediatricians. Whether you choose one of our mattresses with a coil innerspring or our new Eco Dura Bond Breath Easy core you will be sure to get the best in firmness and comfort. With our 2 sided dual comfort (firmer for infants, added comfort for toddlers) found in all our mattresses your baby can sleep comfortably and safely from their crib to toddler bed.
Support - Coil Count Doesn't Count!
Buying a mattress is one of the most important choices you will make for your baby's nursery. Mattresses have to be healthy, firm, safe and comfortable. Your concerns are ours and Jupiter offers an outstanding range of products with the right degree of firmness/support that fits into every parent's budget. Support is driven not just by the number of coils in a mattress but also by how thick the steel is or what type of coil construction is used. Good support can even be achieved without coils!! New technologies are giving parents alternatives to traditional coil innerspring's such as our newest offering the Eco Dura Bond Breath Easy. At Jupiter you will find more sleep technology systems than any other company!!
All our mattresses provide the firmness pediatricians now recommend. Our firmness rating is as follows 1.0 –Basic Firmness 2.0 Extra Firmness 3.0 Premium Firmness.
The question asked most often by parents and caregivers is how firm a mattress baby needs? We feel that a baby's mattress should provide a balance between firmness and comfort. It's true that all pediatricians now recommend that baby sleep on a firm mattress, but just like you wouldn't put your baby to sleep on a hard table, sleeping on a very hard and stiff mattress compromises comfort and may lead to a fussy baby. More importantly research now indicates that a mattress which is too hard can lead to abnormalities in the development of baby's skull.
The easiest way to test for the right firmness is to place your palms in the middle of the mattress where most babies sleep and press your palms into the mattress. A good rule for firmness is that you are not able to squeeze down easily and the surface padding rebounds quickly. This means that the mattress is firm enough for baby. All the mattresses Jupiter makes meet the "firm" criteria recommended by pediatricians while providing a comfortable surface for baby to sleep on.
Not Too Hard.... Not Too Soft... Just Right!
All our mattresses provide the firm support now recommended by pediatricians. Whether you choose one of our coil innerspring mattresses or our new Eco Dura Bond Breath Easy core you will be sure to get the best in firmness and comfort. With our 2 sided dual comfort (firmer for infants, added comfort for toddlers) found in all our mattresses, your baby can sleep safely and comfortably from crib to toddler bed.

There are three basic types of innerspring's available today all of which come from the adult bedding market. All offer the right support and firmness for baby. The most basic and economical is a round coil in an hourglass shape that is referred to as a Bonnell Coil. This provides basic firmness. The premium grade innerspring is known as a Continuous Coil due to its unique design from one strand of wire. We rate its firmness as 2.0. The very best innerspring and the most expensive is a pocket Coil which we rate as a 3.0 Firmness. As the exclusive Simmons licensee in Canada our pocket coil mattresses come with the quality assurances offered by a global sleep technology leader in the adult bedding industry!
Here are the Three Different Spring Technologies we use-
Bonnell- Firmness Factor 1.0 - Basic
The Bonnell coil or open coil has been around since the horse and buggy days. Because of the nature of its open construction many layers of padding must be used to reduce coil feel. This coil is used by 99.9% of the bedding industry because it's the most economical to work with. Jupiter has improved on the basic quality of this coil by using an adult grade high carbon 13 gauge steel 160 coil design. The entire spring is then reinforced with a perimeter weighted all steel 7 gauge border rod along the outer edges. Our border rod is made with a unique square corner design that gives a safer snugger fit in the ends of the crib. The industry standard for a coil can range from a 15 gauge which is a thin wire used to make high coil count springs. A lower number or gauge (such as 13) indicates a thicker wire which means stronger and firmer even though the number of coils in the spring may be less. At Jupiter we use the right blends of gauges to ensure the perfect support and firmness for baby at any budget.
Continuous Coils - Firmness Factor - 2.0 - Premium
This sleep system uses 240 continuous interlinked "S" shaped coils and is reinforced with a perimeter weighted edge to edge support made from a thick 7 gauge border rod. Our border rod is made with a unique square corner design that gives a safer snugger fit in the ends of the crib. Continuous coils are different from Bonnell coils in that they are "S" shaped, not coiled, and made from one long wire. This gives a very stable, interlinked coil system that's been rated as one of the most durable. Because the coils are connected, each coil can draw support from the adjacent coil to provide comfort with durability.
Pocketed Coil Systems - Firmness Factor - 3.0 - Our Best
The Pocket Coil System is a group of independent coils wrapped in a fabric casing and joined together. In general, a Pocket Coil offers the greatest "response range" which means that it can be softer on initial compression and then firmer on deeper compression. This 196 coil design also has the advantage of providing better "point elasticity" which provides individualized firmness and support for baby. As with all our innerspring designs, this sleep system is then reinforced with perimeter weighted edge to edge support made from thick 7 gauge border rod. Our border rod is made with a unique square corner design that gives a safer snugger fit in the end of the crib.
