You can literally see the difference between a traditional Big Barker dog bed and a Big Barker with KulKote. Check out the image below.
You probably notice the paw print on the left looks significantly cooler. Not only are Big Barkers the most comfortable beds to relieve pressure points for your big dog, with KulKote your “lap dog” will feel cooler throughout the night.
If you've ever laid on a bed with cooling gel, you've probably felt an initial cooling effect. Unfortunately, that's where the benefits of cooling gel end. KulKote on the other hand is a temperature regulating technology that is both breathable and provides consistent temperature regulation.
Phase Change Material (PCM) is a substance with a high heat of fusion which, by melting and solidifying at certain temperatures, can store and release large amounts of energy. Think of the PCM as a jelly bean – a hard outer shell with a soft inside. The soft inside absorbs and releases heat as conditions change, for temperature control.
Yep! If there were several layers between your dog and the Kulkote mattress, the cooling effect would definitely become less noticeable. But, we haven't seen any decrease in coolness when using waterproof liner under the microsuede cover.
