Finally, we subjected the mattress to an impact test to see how it holds up structurally when a heavy weight is dropped on it from increasingly higher drop points over the mattress. A 175 lb. weight is used, it is dropped from 2” up to 10” (in 2” increments) and this test is repeated in five different areas of the mattress (center, shoulder/calf, edge, end and corner).
This is an observational test and any visual damage and/or deformation is noted. At all heights and in all areas, Big Fig had “no notable observations or damage”.
