Our History

The world's number one selling mattress protector, 

with partners and distributors in 48 countries.

 About Protect-A-Bed

In 1980, Protect-A-Bed® originated in South Africa, when co-founder and Managing Director, David Kaplan, recognised the need for waterproof mattress protectors. 

In 1990, Protect-A-Bed® started developing products and expanding in the market, both domestically and internationally, from its new Australian base, and was then introduced to the Australian market. 

Protect-A-Bed is Australian Made and Owned

Many of Protect-A-Bed's® products proudly display the Australian Made and Owned logo. 

With the creation of the uniquely breathable, silent, and waterproof Miracle Membrane®, now named the Miracle Layer™, the company grew dramatically, becoming the world's number one selling mattress protector. This title is still held by Protect-A-Bed®. 

Protect-A-Bed® stands by its promise not to compromise on quality or service.

Protect-A-Bed® was the first company to commission independent scientific research on our products, and continues to do so by working with leading testing standards, and entomologists. 

Protect-A-Bed's® full range of Tencel® products are recognised by the Eczema Association as Sensitive Skin Tried and Tested; suitable for those that suffer from skin conditions, such as eczema. 

Sensitive Choice approved brands assist people with asthma to identify products that may help to alleviate triggers and symptoms of asthma. The Sensitive Choice logo is proudly displayed on all of our Mattress and Pillow Protectors. 

After a rigorous review by SIDSandKids of the quality, effectiveness, and safety profile of our products, our entire infants range, as well as all single, extra long single, and king single mattress protectors, are officially recognised as SIDS&Kids Friendly.

Protect-A-Bed® is proud and excited to announce that today we have partners and distributors in 48 countries worldwide.
