Orbit Futon Mattress Details

The Orbit Futon mattress is an entry level futon mattress ideal for people who prefer a firm, low profile futon mattress. The Orbit is also a sensible choice for an A-Frame style futon or loveseat futon frame because the mattress can readily cascade over the back (see our Loveseat Cascading Futon segment on our futon video clips section of our website). Thicker futon mattresses simply cannot bend in this way.

The Orbit Futon is similar to a more traditional Japanese futon mattress because it is so slim. This also makes it lightweight and easier to maneuver then bulkier heavier mattresses. For most, howver, this offers only moderate comfort and limited support away from the slats which might make the Lunar futon mattress a better choice.

However, if you are looking for a thin 3-to-4" lighter weight futon mattress that is more traditional in scale, then the Orbit might be the futon mattress for you.

    More About Split Format Futons

    Split mattress formats are made up of two Orbit futon mattresses that are snugged together to equal their full length complements. A Full size futon mattress is made by combining a Loveseat and Loveseat Ottoman. A Twin size is made with a Twin Chair and Twin Chair Ottoman and the Cot size is attained by scooting a Chair sized futon combines against a Chair Ottoman size.

    The cot is pretty narrow and is not recommended for extended stays and is more suitable for children. Speaking of children, various split sizes can be used individually to offer miniature sized mattress for miniature sized people. So, you don't have to buy a counterpart to the split format concept if you don't want to. We're pretty flexible that way. silly fragg

    Incidentally, the term "ottoman" is used because each segment was originally offered as a footstool section. Today, however, only the chair size has a footstool foundation for its respective mattress, while the other ottoman sizes (the loveseat & twin) are rarely available with an ottoman foundation. Instead, they are either propped up to serve as the back portion of a lounger, or they are stowed elsewhere until they use is required for sleeping. In the latter case, the futon frames that accomadate those sizes is converted into a loveseat or oversized chair (in the case of the twin 39 inch width).

    One frequently asked question about the split format, is whehter the gap can be perceived between the two separate cushions. The best recommendation to avoid feeling the split, is to place the larger split mattress so that it supports the head and torso of your guest, while the smaller split segment supports the calf and foot. When they are secured with the use of non-slip or Gripper Strips, the guest should not notice the difference between a complete futon mattress or the split. One additional thought, is to purchase a complete cover for the split. In the case of the loveseat split format, for example, a Full Size Futon Cover could be employed to encompass both mattresses. This will zip complete around the loveseat futon and loveseat ottoman to hold keep them well intact. When the futon is no longer needed for your guest, simply remove the ottoman cushion, keeping the larger segment inside and zipping it shut. Then, fold the mattress back into position, dog-ear and then military tucking the excess fabric behind the back.

    Have Questions? That's why we're here. So pick up the phone and call, us! We're more than happy to explain the process to help you determine if a split format is right for you. By the way, some futon mattress are thin enough to cascade over the back should you need a mattress for a loveseat or twin chair. In this case, you are forgoing a level of comfort, but saving money and removing a layer of complexity in the process. You might want to ask us about that as well, if you are considering a split format mattress for a loveseat or twin size futon.silly fragg

We do our very best to keep up with demand and recommend you contact us if in doubt about an arrival date.

Please contact us by phone if in doubt

After the processing and manufacturing is completed, your Orbit Futon Mattress will ship via FedEx Ground.

Futon Planet Brand Mattress Shipping FAQ's

  • Q: Why can't in-store Futon Planet Brand futons ship from the store? — Unlike our Otis brand futon mattresses which ship to us from Otis in vacuum packed packages, the mattresses we offer in-store customers under our own label are not vacuum packed or ready to ship. This service is only provided to our on-line customers who purchase Futon Planet brand mattresses and must be fulfilled at the factory.
  • Q: Why do custom mattress take longer? — It's not always, the case, but frequently custom made futon mattresses require more attention to detail than the higher production runs of our standard spec futon mattresses. For this reason, a seemstress will attend to custom orders after a major production run once the dust settles. If you are in a hurry, call us to see about a RUSH PRODUCTION order and an additional Fast Trac option.
  • Q: Why must I open my futon mattress the day it arrives — Two reasons. One reason is that you want to allow it to begin to expand to its intended loft as quickly as possible. With cotton-filled mattresses, this means it can a little time to expand and the longer it stays compressed the less likely it will expand to its intended loft. Also, as with all our products, we like customers to open their products and inspect them for potential shipping damages. We rarely, we mean very rarely, receive calls from customers regarding futon mattress damages, but it can happen. Notifying us immediately enables us to seek a freight claim while quickly attending your needs regarding a replacement. Please note any damages must be identified with the use of digital images and need to be emailed to us promptly so we can service your claim.
  • Q:How will my Orbit Futon Mattress be packaged? — Futon Planet brand futon mattresses ship to you in a vacuum packed package with a near-bullet proof mesh that helps ensure it is well protected from potential shipping damages. When it arrives, you will carefully unpack it and watch it grow, much like a giant grow worm. Be sure to stand back. Just kidding! They expand slowly, taking several business days to recover. They don't expand on weekends..silly fragg

Very Basic
I don't recommend this one. It's just a pad really with no support. And you can feel through the bottom.

Learned a trick
I bought this as a replacement mattress for my metal frame and I instantly regretted it. I called the company and they explained that they don't take futon mattresses back because they can't resell them once they are used.

Rima had called me to see if I wanted to upgrade before she shipped it and I told her no. I kind of regret that now. When I did call back and found out about their return policy, the guy there told me that I could add cardboard to the frame to keep from feeling the bars.

He was pretty nice about it and I'm not mad at them or anything, but I initially was a little put off by this suggestion. Then, I decided to give it a try, and it did improve the way it felt pretty considerably. I tucked the cardboard so it wouldn't show and now it's not so bad.

Take the upgrade, if you can, but the cardboard thing works.

Thin and Basic
I purchased this mattress to have something I could roll up and store away in my closet. It works fine for a night or two on the floor, but I'm pretty sure you would feel the wooden bars through it if it were on a futon sofa.

I bought a cover which doesn't really fit it too well. It's loose and droopy. That's my only real complaint, but I guess you can't expect much from their entry level futon pad.

Horrible Mattress!
Whatever you do. Don't go for this one. I just about threw it out the other night. I'm going to buy local this time so I know what I'm getting
