No strings. No seams. No stitches.

That’s our Custody Marathon Corrections Mattress, a new Norix® product designed for correctional environments needing high performance and longevity. The unique construction of Custody Marathon protects against untimely breakdown and loft loss, providing facilities a product with comfortable and long-lasting lumbar support.

“We listened to correctional employees and saw a need for a mattress that would last for a long time in the most critical corrections environments,” Brad Karl, Director of Norix® Innovation, said. “Marathon is that product, and we believe the unique construction of this mattress makes it a wise investment for those facilities looking for both safety and longevity.”

Marathon is made with a nearly ¼ inch seamless, molded vinyl skin exterior that is rotationally molded in one piece, not sewn or stitched. It’s also filled with cushioned polyurethane foam for comfort and comes with an integrated double-sided pillow for added safety and security.

“It’s unlike any correctional mattress on the market,” Karl said. “Norix® spent much time researching this innovative product and even did field trials to ensure it performed the way we expected. It’s a revolutionary mattress that truly solves problems in intensive-use correctional spaces.”
