Durable mattresses!

Our autistic/challenging behaviour inpatient service is currently going through mattresses at the rate of knots! Despite being "heavy duty" and costing approx £200 each, we have a number of patients who are literally  ripping them to shreads. We are considering buying "tough furniture's" mattress, but at around £450 wanted to know whether anyone had any experience of this mattress, or whether anyone had any other recommendations for a durable mattress for this client group within a hospital. Many thanks!

Hi there,

I work at a residential school with children with very challenging needs (including distruction!) we use all tough furniture (beds, mattresses, tv case etc) and I dont know of us having any troubles!

Hope this helps
