    DOC Hut mattresses

    I'm trying to find out where to get some mattresses similar to the ones in Doc huts.

    Any leads out there, need around 30 IIRC

    Expecting a multiple childbirth huh Greg?
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    I did a search and all I found was that there is a DOC standard for them and they must fire retardant.

    Thanks, I don't think the cotton cover will last long enough...not sure about flame resistance either...

    I have all the details on file and can dig them out tomorrow.
    They are bloody expensive due to being fire proof.
    I have built 2 new DoC huts in the last 4 years so have the details.

    You will have the satisfaction of sleeping on the same mattresses that the Corrections dept us
