  • Important Information


Pelican has made many Heat Sealed Mattresses, which are generally used in mental health facilities. They are designed with all internal seams, and one soft (i.e. not sharp) external seam. The foam is a relatively dense foam, which help prevent the seams popping if the mattress is under stress.

The mattresses we make are been custom-made to the required sizes.


About the Heat Sealed Mattress

Material options are:

  • Heavy duty waterproof, hospital-grade medical vinyl
  • Waterproof, 4 way stretch material.

We seal the mattress with internal seams where possible. There is one external outer seam which we fold over to make softer, to provide less of a self-harm risk.


We can also make mattresses with a sewn cover rather than a heat sealed cover. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

We recommend using the Mattress Handling Straps, to help when moving the mattresses.






Wipe clean with a hospital grade disinfectant. Wipe dry and air dry in the shade. Ensure the product is dry before using or storing.




Although every effort is made to ensure the seams are soft, we recommend you keep users under constant supervision, in case they use any part of the mattress to hurt themselves either accidently or deliberately.
