Is a Spring Mattress the Best Option?
Spring mattresses are the popular choice of mattress today.
Coir mattresses and PU foam mattresses are often cheaper but they can be unsuitable because Coir can be too hard on the back and 100% foam mattresses tend to be a heat trap and too soft leading to back related issues.
However, not all spring mattresses are created equal. It’s critical to understand what’s gone into a spring mattress, it’s core components and layers before you take your pick.
There’s no blanket answer to the health benefits of spring mattresses. Some find spring mattresses good for back pain but others don’t, some find them comfortable and supportive but others disagree. Spring mattress benefits come down to the components of the mattress, matching what they deliver with what you need.
Traditional Bonnell vs Pocket Spring
Bonnell springs have been used in mattresses since ages. These springs form the core layer of a mattress. They are interconnected with helical wires and bound inside the mattress frame. Bonnell spring has fewer, larger springs, which are linked together with high quality fillings. The impression is somewhat firmer than the pocketed. This means Bonnell spring is less receptive to pressure and may sag under your body weight. Bonnell Spring mattresses are ideal for Guest Rooms or for children rooms, where the higher level of support may not be absolutely necessary.
Pocket springs are individual springs encased in fabric units that are connected with each other. The springs can compress and expand individually without affecting each other. They offer high point elasticity and better pressure distribution. A mattress with pocket springs enables zero motion transfer. If you’ve got a restless bedtime partner, you need a pocket spring base in your spring mattress.
The pocket spring uses the small individual springs, each in its own calico pocket. With each small spring reacting to the pressure applied to the mattress a perfect degree of support is gained across the length of the body – with maximum support given automatically where it is needed most – ensuring the spine is kept straight even if you sleep on your side
Spring mattresses can be used with other padding layers to provide extra comfort , luxury and the support to meet individual body needs.
Memory foam layer for pressure support
With spring forming the core layer, the mattress needs a soft comfort layer on top. This is where memory foam layer really adds to the advantages of a spring mattress. Memory foam was designed by NASA. It softens in reaction to body heat and moulds itself to body contours, making it ideal for pressure relief. If you’re more of a side sleeper, you’ll notice the added comfort around your shoulders, rib cage and hip. Even on your back, the foam aligns with your natural spine curve giving the soothing touch for a good night’s sleep.
While ordinary memory foam can be a heat sink, a more advanced version called the ‘Open Cell Structure’ (OCS) technology further ensures the foam layer doesn’t trap heat. It allows ventilation and gives a cool, dry and fresh feel.
Natural latex layer for comfort and freshness
100% natural Latex is considered the creme de la creme of mattress layers. What Latex provides apart from superior comfort is that it is naturally hypoallergenic and anti-microbial as well as cool and comfortable.
Natural latex does not contain any synthetic products. And it improves breathability and bounce, something children love.
