Pocket spring mattresses are constructed using individual pocket springs which respond and contour to your body shape, offering maximum support and comfort. Pocket sprung mattresses are available in single, double and king size, as well as the full range of firmness ratings from soft to extra firm.
Pocket sprung mattresses use a combination of fabric pockets and springs to create a sleeping surface that responds to your body, offering unmatched full body support. They are a great option if you share a bed as the springs help to prevent ‘roll-together’ where you both end up rolling towards the middle of the bed during the night.
What is the difference between a standard spring mattress and a pocket spring mattress?
In an open coil mattress, the spring coils that form the mattress all move together as one unit, so if you are sleeping next to someone and they move in the night, you will move too! Pocket spring mattresses are made with individual springs which are encased in fabric pockets. This enables each spring to move independently from the other springs, which creates more support and less movement of the mattress when you move in your sleep.
Why choose a pocket spring mattress?
When compared to an open coil mattress, a pocket sprung mattress is a better choice for many reasons. The individual pocket springs move independently from each other which allows for much better support and comfort. The construction of the mattress also means that the movement is restricted so it’s a great choice for couples as there is less chance that you will wake each other in the night.
How many pocket springs do I need?
As a rule of thumb, the more pocket springs that are contained within a mattress the more supportive it will be. A higher spring count offers more contact with your body and will better contour to your shape. Our pocket spring mattresses are available from anywhere between 1000 springs to over 4000 springs and are available in a range of firmness ratings from soft to very firm.
Firmness ratings for pocket spring mattresses
Once you have made the decision to buy a pocket spring mattress, you will then need to choose how soft or firm you would like your mattress. The firmness of the mattress has a lot to do with how the mattress has been constructed rather than how many pocket springs it has. This means that a mattress with a lot of pocket springs can be either soft or firm depending on your preference. Soft mattresses are great for side sleepers whilst people who sleep on their back or stomach may prefer a firm mattress.
