AeroBed® History

When you use an AeroBed® bed, you get more than just an airbed. AeroBed® products are a better night’s sleep, the life of the party and the most comfortable way to turn any space into a guest room.

We are the leading innovator of premium, stylish, technologically-advanced airbeds. We continually strive to provide unique, quality products that deliver superior convenience, comfort, durability, and style both indoors and outdoors.

AeroBed® beds have been helping conscientious hosts and cramped apartment residents reclaim their space for nearly 20 years. The company began in 1992 with a patent on an innovative way to quickly inflate and deflate air mattresses.

Extensive consumer research and product development brought about the original AeroBed® bed. Consumers had the option to dream anywhere in something more than just an air mattress. With an AeroBed® mattress people could enjoy a comfortable, adjustable, extra bed. The mattress fully inflated in less than 60 seconds with the exclusive, built-in pump. Users had the option of adjusting the bed’s firmness with its premium-quality construction. When they awoke refreshed, its patented, quick-release valve deflated the bed in just 15 seconds.

The new century brought with it new innovations for AeroBed® beds. In 2001 the Raised AeroBed® mattress offered the comfort and convenience of the original AeroBed® product, but with the height of a regular bed. A year later AeroBed® Products brought even more convenience to our comfort with the New & Improved AeroBed® bed. It inflated 30% faster and 20% firmer than the original and the recessed pump design made it even more versatile. The Whoosh™ valve offered quick, hassle-free deflation so the Aerobed® mattress could be stored in a matter of seconds.

The innovations never stopped. Today’s AeroBed® mattresses could be equipped with hand-held comfort controls that allow users to pick their own firmness settings, special air coil systems that support the entire back and outdoor airbeds made tough for the most serious outdoor enthusiasts.

At the end of 2010 two of the world’s leading airbed manufacturers came together when The Coleman Company, Inc., a subsidiary of the Jarden Corporation (NYSE: JAH), purchased and merged with Aero Products International. Now together, we are finding new ways to help people disconnect from daily life, experience something remarkable and seize the night.
