Do Tulo mattresses have fiberglass? Tulo mattresses definitely have fiberglass, but some popular websites might lead you to believe they’re fiberglass-free when they are not. Those other websites are either lazy, ignorant, or greedy and don’t care about actual mattresses free from fiberglass as long they make sales commissions.
Tulo has a few mattress lines at Mattress Firm that are very popular because of their affordability. Tulo mattress prices are kept low by only being available online and not inside brick-and-mortar stores. Because of this, I’ve received lots of questions regarding Tulo and fiberglass.
Other Websites are Wrong About Fiberglass in Tulo Mattresses
Tulo makes very affordable memory foam mattresses that start off at barely over $200 for a 6″ thick queen-sized lavender mattress, going up to just under $600 for a 12″ pillow top option. Those prices are definitely appealing, so it’s no wonder Tulo mattresses are so popular.
The only bad thing about Mattress Firm’s exclusive Tulo mattresses is their inclusion of fiberglass as a fire retardant. Sadly, Mattress Firm was hard to get answers from for the first few years while fiberglass mattress awareness was hitting its peak. Because of this, many popular websites have incorrect statements in their articles about fiberglass in Tulo mattresses. Some websites even just guess and say they don’t think Tulo mattresses have fiberglass.
“If you’re worried about whether your Tulo mattress has fiberglass in it, rest assured that Tulo mattresses do not contain fiberglass. Instead, they use a combination of flame retardant barriers and materials that meet federal flammability standards without fiberglass.” -Best10Mattress.com
“Does Tulo hybrid have fiberglass? No, the Tulo hybrid mattress does not contain fiberglass.” – SleepShacks.com
“There is a 90% chance that tulo mattress does not have fiberglass in their mattresses because they are made in the USA, made with natural materials, have CertiPUR-US Certificate, and they do not have fiberglass in their Ingredient List.” -SleepingDay.com
“Of course, not much evidence supports the claim that their mattresses have fiberglass. But there is no evidence available to oppose it as well.” -MattressNut.com
The problem with all those websites is that they are either speculating, using anecdotal evidence, or just making up stuff that suits the article they are writing. Most of the articles don’t recommend Tulo and instead present alternative mattress brands that are definitely fiberglass-free.
However, there are a few websites that actually say Tulo is fiberglass-free and include affiliate links to make money selling Tulo mattresses – Tulo mattresses that definitely do contain fiberglass. That’s just shameful.
Tulo Mattresses Definitely Contain Fiberglass
I wanted to cut through the smoke and mirrors, so I went straight to the source to find out about fiberglass. Granted, I tried asking Mattress Firm about fiberglass in Tulo mattresses 2 years ago, and I was ignored. This time things went differently, though, and I actually got honest answers from Mattress Firm about fiberglass in Tulo mattresses.
So, if you previously tried to investigate Tulo mattresses and got shut out, maybe try again and you’ll have better luck like I did. Check it out, here’s what I got when I used the chat function on Mattress Firm to ask about Fiberglass in Tulo beds:
“Tulo mattresses use a fiberglass fire sock for their fire barrier, which is a common and effective material for fire safety. It is still Certi-Pur Certified as the fire barrier is in the middle of the bed and would not come in contact with anyone. The reason they are affordable is that they are direct ship items not kept at local stores and will ship via FedEx.” -Mattress Firm Chat
So, we have solid, undeniable, proof that Tulo mattresses have fiberglass in the form of a firesock beneath the outer cover. Straight from the horse’s mouth, as they say.

John started JSnowCreations as a place to post random tech guides and product reviews. However, while shopping for his daughter’s first “big girl” bed in 2019 he learned about the hidden dangers of fiberglass in mattresses. Since then, John has made it his mission to expose as much hidden fiberglass in mattresses as possible. His ultimate goal is federal regulations that ban fiberglass from being used in mattresses, or at least a law that require it to be listed in the material tags.
