British bed manufacturer Slumberland has been granted Best Safety Product by the Baby Products Association for its debut Slumbertime Luxury Pocket Sprung Cot Mattress at the 2017 Baby and Nursey Trade Awards.

The prestigious awards, held in partnership with the Harrogate International Nursery Fair, recognises outstanding quality and design across the whole of the nursery trade.

With the quality of entries improving year-on-year, the competition this year was stronger than ever and Slumberland’s debut Luxury Pocket Sprung Cot Mattress was commended for its chemical-free cover and UK manufacturing.

It was also recognised as the first time a mattress has won the award for ‘Best Safety Product’ at the UK’s one trade show dedicated to Nursey.

Steve Birds, national account manager, says: “The Harrogate International Nursery Fair provided a great opportunity to showcase Slumberland’s first cot mattress collection and we were delighted to receive such great feedback, plus achieve excellent distribution with independent nursery retailers. For our Slumbertime Luxury Pocket Sprung Cot Mattress to be recognised for safety by the Baby and Nursery Trade Awards is an incredibly proud moment.

“We developed the Slumberland cot mattress collection around breathability, practicality and of course safety. The sleeping surface is free from all Fire Retardant chemicals because we’ve used a naturally Fire Retardant fibre. This allows for the sleeping surface to be free from all antinomy, phosphorus and arsenic chemicals - the safest ways for babies to sleep plus peace of mind for parents.”
