mattresses it's called taping and it's the hardest job in a mattress Factory so

these beautiful zip off the tops make it possible for machines to do most of the

work the next thing is the fire sock this is the fire barrier we just cut

this thing and that exposes the foam we have memory foam here and then we have

just a high density foam here for support there's there's also a quilting

with gel sewn into it but that memory foam over the support foam that's the

standards basically in every memory foam mattress so what I want to do now is
