Does the Plank Sleep Hot?

No, the plank bed does not sleep hot!

Though the bed uses a combination of foams that contribute to heat retention, it lacks plushness that helps keep air flowing around the body.

How is Motion Isolation?

The bed fares well in this category and just like any all foam bed, the Plank minimizes motion transfer.

Although the firm foams are resilient enough to offer a tighter surface with some bounce, but the overall foam layers perform well in absorbing excessive movement.

In addition to this, the bed does not add any disruptions while sleeping if you are sharing it with your partner.

What Type of Cover Does it Have?
