Introducing TEMPUR Breeze™

Optimising the microclimate to help you feel cooler when you sleep

TEMPUR® high performance sleep technology continues in 2014 with our latest innovation. TEMPUR Breeze mattresses feature new proprietary TEMPUR Climate Material™ and a unique cover created to wick away excess moisture. By reducing relative humidity and promoting airflow, Breeze optimises the micro-climate to help you to feel cooler when you sleep. Breeze models are available in Original, Sensation and Cloud collections in 22cm and 27cm heights so that you can find the right mattress for your comfort.

How it works

Breeze mattresses feature TEMPUR Climate Material™ or TCM in the core combined with a 3D cover to help manage the micro-climate around you as you sleep. Any humidity is able to pass easily through the 3D cover and away from the body. Then a layer of TCM with thick open cell walls allows faster and more efficient moisture movement and breathability through the material leaving you with the sensation of sleeping cooler and more comfortably.

TEMPUR sheds the light on Daylight Saving Time

With Daylight Saving Time just around the corner several questions are asked every year; what time of year do clocks go forward? What time of year do they go back? What is the history of Daylight Saving? Why is it called DST? How can I prepare for the clock change? We’ve answered all of these questions and have also included some tips to make sure you are prepared for the leap forward and to make sure you adjust to the shorter nights ahead.

Daylight Savings, where did it all begin?

1784: The idea of Daylight saving time was first thought up by American inventor and politician Benjamin Franklin - His main motive then was not (as it might be now) saving energy or prolonging daylight hours. Rather, he wanted to reduce the need for people to spend money on candles

1897: An entomologist in New Zealand, George Vernon Hudson, presented a paper to the Wellington Philosophical Society outlining a daylight saving scheme

1907: In The Waste of Daylight keen horse-rider William Willett first introduced the idea of British Summer Time (BST), also known as Daylight Saving Time

1916: Britain finally caught onto the merits of BST, and making the most of morning sunshine, by adopting BST a year after Willet’s death

Epitaph on Willet’s memorial - “Horas Non Numero Nisi Aestivas” (I only keep the summer hours)

1968-1971: Known as the ‘permanent summer’, Britain stayed one hour ahead of Greenwich Mean Time for 3 years.

Daylight Savings around the world

DST is now used in over 70 countries worldwideDaylight Savings around the world

DST is now used in over 70 countries worldwide

Japan, India, and China are the only major industrialised countries that do not have some form of daylight saving

In Russia DST was abolished in 2011

Only parts of Brazil observe DST and they include: Brasilia, Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. Brazil's electric utility estimates that DST saves some U.S. $200 million a year

Equatorial countries, where the sun rises and sets at largely the same time each do not observe daylight savings, as there is little difference throughout the year.

China has had a single time zone since May 1, 1980

They had summer DST from 1986 to 1991 but they do not have DST now

From 2002 onwards, in every Member State, the summer-time period shall begin at 1.00 a.m. Greenwich Mean Time on the last Sunday in March, and shall end at 1.00 a.m. Greenwich Mean Time on the last Sunday in October

How to prepare for the leap forward

Wake up 30 minutes earlier on Saturday and Sunday than you need to in preparation for the early start on Monday

Eat a decent-sized breakfast

Go outside in the sunlight in the early morning

Exercise in the mornings over the weekend

TEMPUR celebrates World Sleep Day 2014

On March 14 2014 we celebrate the benefits of healthy sleep with World Sleep Day. At Tempur we recognise that Sleep is essential for your health and wellbeing, so why not give yourself the best sleep possible? 


FEEL THE DIFFERENCE OF TEMPUR® In support of World Sleep Day 2014, we are offering the opportunity to Feel the Difference of TEMPUR® with our exclusive pillow offer. A good pillow that properly supports your head and neck in a comfortable position is vital to enjoy your best night’s sleep. 

CHOOSING THE RIGHT PILLOW Choosing the right pillow can improve how well your body is positioned at night and the quality of your sleep. The temperature sensitive material used in all TEMPUR pillows softens as it responds to your body heat, conforming to the natural curvature of your head and neck and offering optimal comfort and support. This enables you to relax and enjoy a more restful sleep. 

When selecting a pillow, there are a few things you should consider. The first thing you should decide is whether you want a traditional shaped pillow, or a specially shaped pillow. Specially shaped pillows offer conforming support for different needs and sleep positions, whereas traditionally styled, loose-filled models provide versatile, pillow comfort. Depending on your sleeping position, different pillow shapes will also allow you to lie more comfortably. 

Whatever your needs, there is a TEMPUR pillow that is right for You. All pillows come with a three-year warranty.
