Pocket Sprung Mattress Guide
A Buyers Guide to Pocket Spring Mattresses
What's Inside a Pocket Sprung Mattress?
With Pocket Sprung Mattresses, the comfort is in the detail. Pocket Sprung Mattresses are designed using thousands of individual springs which are sewn into individual fabric pockets. These springs then work independently to embrace the contours of your body and allow you to sink into the mattress so you are gently supported throughout the night.
Pocket Sprung Mattresses are categorised by the number of springs in the mattress, often referred to as ‘counts’. As a general rule, the more springs in the mattress the more support you will benefit from. Our Pocket Sprung Memory Foam Mattresses have a layer of memory foam on the top for enhanced comfort. The pocket sprung design means that when you lie down, pressure will only be applied to the area where your body is in contact with the surface. Memory foam has an innovative viscoelasticity which promotes the correct spinal alignment with temperature sensitive capabilities. It enables the foam to conform to your unique body shape to relieve muscle aches and joint pain. When these two types of construction are combined the results are a superior quality mattress with targeted support and comfort.
What is the Best Base for a Pocket Sprung Mattress?
What base you choose for your mattress will promote one of the existing benefits featured in the mattress design. A slatted base will enhance the highly breathable design of the pocket spring structure. Slatted surfaces encourage further airflow and draw moisture from the mattress which will then reduce the risk of mould forming.
A solid divan base will provide an ideal surface for the high density foam as the strong and durable base will allow the mattress to lie perfectly flat.
Is a Pocket Sprung Mattress for You?
A Pocket Sprung Mattress is a great solution to many sleeping needs. This mattress is great for couples who differ in shape and size as the individual springs cater to a change in weight so each partner benefits from targeted support. This design also minimises the risk of you rolling towards each other during the night so you are not impacted by each other’s movements.
The unique construction of a pocket sprung mattress differs from the classic interwoven design of many other mattresses. The interwoven spring construction means that when pressure or weight is applied to the springs at one end of the mattress this can affect the springs at the opposite end, impacting your partner and disturbing their sleep. However, a Pocket Sprung Mattress takes the weight of you and your partner separately so you can both sleep soundly despite movement and variation in size.
