SYNTHETIC OR NATURAL FIBER MATTRESS WITH ENHANCED COMPRESSION RESISTANCE
A structured fiber product is constructed with fibers oriented primarily in a vertical direction. Fibers made from recycled materials are combined with binder fibers which have a lower transition temperature than the recycled fibers. A three dimensional web is formed from the fibers oriented in a horizontal direction. The web is heated to bind the fibers and cooled to fix the web in a predetermined thickness. Sections of the web are stacked while maintaining substantially parallel orientation of the fibers in the horizontal direction, heated to bind the fibers and cooled to fix a predetermined thickness of the structured fiber product. The structured fiber product is rotated so that the fibers are oriented in the vertical direction. One or more slabs of the structured fiber product with vertically oriented fibers may be configured to form a resilient structure such as a mattress core.
