Kenworth Adds Premium, Comfortable Support Mattress as Standard Feature To Sleepers


KIRKLAND, Wash. – When drivers operating new Kenworth trucks turn in for their rest periods, they will relax on comfortable pocket innerspring mattresses.

Kenworth Truck Company recently announced that the pocket innerspring mattress is now standard on lower bunks in all new Kenworth Class 8 trucks equipped with sleepers. The premium innerspring mattresses have independent high-tensile wire coils in a cylindrical spring wrapped in high-density fabric, which is designed to minimize friction and noise and to maximize wear strength. Each coil forms an individual pocket, which absorbs weight and does not distribute the load to other coils. This enables the mattress to provide even support, a higher comfort level, reduced motion and increased longevity. Kenworth added the premium innerspring mattress as a standard feature in response to a recommendation from Kenworth customers.

“An over-the-road driver must remain alert in order to deal with the job’s many demands,” said Gary Moore, Kenworth assistant general manager for marketing and sales. “Studies published by the National Sleep Foundation report that proper rest is critical to maintaining alertness, and using a comfortable and supportive mattress is one of several key steps to getting that rest.

“That’s why Kenworth is pleased to offer the premium pocket innerspring mattress as a standard feature in sleepers on all of its models,” Moore said. “The addition of the premium mattress makes Kenworth trucks an even more compelling choice for owner-operators and fleets looking for trucks that offer drivers a comfortable and productive work environment.”
