Eclipse Adds Activcor to Van Vorst line

Leading bedding manufacturer Eclipse International is expanding its luxury Van Vorst Mattress line by bringing in technology first used in athletic shoes and German luxury automobiles to absorb shock and provide extra support and durability. Activcor Advanced Comfort System features patented technology and innovation in a molded MDI foam core (as opposed to traditional TDI foam) that incorporates barrel-shaped modules. Two new Van Vorst models will feature Activcor topped with either latex or memory foam.

Developed as an effective cushioning material high-end athletic shoes to support athletes from the repetitive stress of running and jumping, Activcor is a great go-to material for supporting sleep. A solid, molded foam, Activcor features foam columns, similar to pocket coils, that are engineered to absorb motion and provide defined body support.

“Activcor is the perfect addition to our growing line of Van Vorst collection of mattresses,” said Stuart Carlitz, chief executive officer of Eclipse International. “The enhanced cushioning system provides a level of support that helps eliminate tossing and turning, a key disruptor of sleep. Combined with the latex or the memory foam, the new Van Vorst mattresses cradle sleepers in comfort for a more restful night’s sleep.”
