About Plank

Plank is the daughter company of Brooklyn Bedding, a leading American sleep brand that specializes in producing high-quality mattresses with patented technology. The family-owned mattress retailer was founded in 1995 and has since won numerous awards for its beds. Both of their mattresses, the Plank Firm and the Plank Luxe offer a firmness that exceeds the standard for those that just don’t find other mattresses to be ‘firm enough. Their mattresses are also double sided, with a firm side and another side that’s even more firm.

Firmness Level

The Plank and Plank Luxe Hybrid are both exceptionally firm mattresses; it’s what they were designed to be. However, the Luxe Hybrid is noticeably softer than the all-foam Plank.

On the firmness scale, with 1 being very soft and 10 being very firm, our ratings are:

  • 8 for the Plank’s firm side and 9 for its extra-firm side.
  • 7.5 for the Plank Luxe Hybrid’s firm side and 8.5 for its extra-firm side

Since these mattresses are so firm, they aren’t great for side-sleepers as they won’t provide pressure relief for your hips and shoulders. But for back and front sleepers looking for a firm mattress, the Plank varieties are a dream come true, and even are double sided with one side that’s less firm (but still firm).

Cooling Properties

Plank offers an additional cooling topper, however it’s not included in the price of the mattress.  Otherwise the mattress is pretty standard in terms of temperature regulation and cooling properties. If you decide to invest in the cooling topper, it’s described as a ‘PCM surface infusion of TitanCool’ and is a great option for hot sleepers, scoring a 2/10, with 1 being the coldest.

Pressure Relief

For side sleepers, the Plank mattresses won’t really provide the pressure relief that you’ll need when sleeping – a softer mattress would be better. But for back and side sleepers the Plank mattress provides slightly more pressure relief, especially in the lumbar region.

It’s easy and comfortable to move around on the Plank mattresses, making them a good option for combination sleepers and those that toss and turn throughout the night. The material used in the mattresses, the TitanFlex is similar to latex in that it contours to the sleepers body.

Motion Isolation

With the Plank mattress, you’re likely to feel your partner moving around if you share the bed due to the high motion transfer it is. I’d say this mattress is better for someone who doesn’t share the bed with a partner or pet, or isn’t the lightest sleeper. This doesn’t mean this isn’t a great mattress brand, but due to its higher than usual level of firmness, it’s not ideal for motion isolation.

Edge Support

The edges of the Plank mattresses are not reinforced, meaning that the edge support is not great. The extra firmness of the mattress however might still contribute to a more ‘secure’ feeling when laying down on the mattress, with only a slight feeling of ‘sinkage’ when sitting right near the perimeter of the mattress.

Mattress Materials

Plank mattresses, constructed with four layers, are made from polyfoam. Each side of the mattress (firm and extra firm) contains a layer of ‘quilting foam’, and a cooling top panel can also be added for an additional cost.

Final Word

Many mattress brands offer mattresses for every type of sleeper, which can be great, but the fact that Plank specializes in firm mattresses for back and front sleepers gives them a unique advantage.  So if you’re looking for a new, super firm mattress and aren’t a side sleeper, the Plank makes a great, affordable choice.
