Aero has been manufacturing inflatable mattresses for years. They have found a distinctive niche, producing a brand of beds that are readily identifiable. Though they provide an extensive product line, their beds share many common features not found in all air mattresses.
The are two different categories to choose from when selecting an Aero air bed: Indoor or Outdoor.
For indoor models, the most outstanding feature is a built-in electric pump that is used to inflate the bed. This pump plugs into the wall and will fill the mattress with air in just over a minute. Most of the pumps also feature a small remote attached by a wire. This remote allows the user to either increase or decrease the amount of air in the mattress to meet their preferred comfort level.
Another feature found only on the indoor Aero air bed is the option of purchasing a raised bed. This type of bed provides an attached second mattress that raises the main mattress off of the floor. It is designed to provide a more comfortable, less utilitarian, nightâ€™s sleep.
The outdoor versions of the Aero air bed are similar to the indoor models with a few differences.
First, the pump that is included is not built into the mattress and requires eight â€œCâ€ type batteries, or a DC car adapter, to run. It will still inflate the bed in about a minute, though. The outdoor mattresses also have a higher temperature threshold than the indoor models which can sometimes crack if they get very cold while inflating.
Both categories of the Aero air bed are made from very strong PVC-free materials, making them puncture-resistant and strong enough for one or two people to actually walk on them while inflated. They also include a special latch on the valve that allows the bed to be deflated in about a minute as well.
The beds themselves come in a variety of sizes, from twin to queen. Standard bedding sheets easily fit the sizes. A regular mattress measures about 9â€ high, while raised beds average 24â€ in height.
The more expensive premiere mattresses are constructed with an internal system of pockets where the air is concentrated so as to help provide a more supportive sleeping surface. Raised models also include shams and standard bed covers.
A variety of accessories are available for the beds. There are different valves that can be attached, as well as a variety of power charging options so the pumps will be able to operate under any circumstances, anywhere.
Through rigorous testing, the mattresses are designed to last for years and withstand the normal wear and tear that any spring-coil bed would. Even so, Aero provides a generous warranty upon purchase of their products. The warranties range from one to three years depending on the model.
The beds are easy to roll and fold, and include their own storage bags. Weighting around 10 to 35 pounds each, they are moved easily in and out of closets or drawers when needed. As a solution to temporary bedding or as an inexpensive piece of furniture, an Aero air bed will do the job nicely.
