    More About Split Format Futons

    Split mattress formats are made up of two Mars 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

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 Mars 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

I can't believe they got this thing in that little bitty package.

Good product and comfortable too.

Took too long
I ordered my futon on a Wednesday and it didn't arrive until the following Friday. I was a little annoyed by that.

But the mattress feels great, even though it took a couple more days to re-inflate after their packaging job.

Ok. Not so annoyed anymore, but try to speed it up next time!

I received this mattress about one week after ordering
Before ordering. I called Futon Planet and had all my questions answered clearly and courteously. They even gave me the name of an competitor if I wanted a full cotton construction in my mattress, when I asked about that.

I received this mattress about one week after ordering, which was wonderful considering the shipping was FREE to Kansas. Packaged very well and not too clumsy for a full size futon. After opening it lofted quickly with a little help of pounding and turning, I was sleeping on it that very night. The care instruction sheet enclosed with the bed is extensive and full of good information. The cover on it is a white heavy material, very sturdy. Finally the support I need for a good night's sleep, Mars is very firm and with a new cotton mattress cover and my down topper on it, it was like heaven on my back. I sleep on it every night and look forward to many years of sweet dreams. Thank you Futon Planet!

Mars pad is a TEN
Mars futon mattress; product code is fpc-mars-jg-ax; the ratings go only to number 5, but the Mars pad is a TEN. Wonderfully comfortable for extended reading. Great for sleeping.

Rima and Adrien have been fabulous with their knowledge and recommendations. Completely recommended.

Comfortable, but not as firm as I had expected.
Comfortable, but not as firm as I had expected. Based on the description of extra firm, I had thought it would be considerably more firm than the current firm mattress I had. Nevertheless, it is a great product, and is working fairly well. I am sleeping better than before, and the order handling and shipping was fast and reliable (what an amazing job packing it into such a tight bundle!)

Many thanks for a great product!

...VERY comfortable for sitting...
I have just ordered the Mars Queen size futon for my queen-sized platform bed. I previously ordered the Mars full-size futon mattress for my living room futon couch. It worked very nicely and is VERY comfortable for sitting. I recently have been sleeping on the futon couch frame (opened up obviously) because of construction in the bedrooms. I slept on it for a month. I was positively impressed with how comfortable it is for sleeping. The previous futon mattress was not at all comfortable on the frame because of the design of the frame. You almost had to have a piece of plywood under it to make it work. However, the Mars mattress was very comfortable. No problem with the poorly-designed frame. Yes!

...very comfortable if you prefer a firm feel...
The mattress I ordered was the Mars. It arrived within a week and a half. It is very comfortable if you prefer a firm feel. I was very pleasantly surprised...the last mattress I'd had that felt this good cost 3 times the price! The build quality is excellent. Sturdy materials, heavy duty stitching, etc.
