Size matters - just not how you might think. Most mattresses use traditional, off-the-peg, chunky springs. These solid cylinders certainly have bounce (and everything that goes with that), but here’s why ‘bigger is better’ is a myth that may cost you your comfort.
1. Little springs mean a lot (of support)
Imagine, for a minute, stage diving into a crowd. Would you want to be ferried into the fray by just a couple of people holding you on their hands, or swept along by a large crowd floating you on their fingertips?
Smaller, finer springs create thousands of points of contact - up to 2,500 in one of our king size Hybrid® mattresses - all of which are ready to gently support your shoulders, hips and spine while you sleep.
2. Patented for your pleasure
Individually pocketed springs are common in the mattress industry. Our uncommonly shaped conical springs are designed especially for us and move horizontally and vertically in their pockets so they’re exceptionally responsive. So, once again, we’ve got your back.
3. Keeping the peace
That classic creaking noise is a legacy of using old-school big springs. They also contribute to the see-saw effect that can wake both you and your partner in the night as you naturally move in your sleep. Lighter springs support your spine without OTT bounce, giving you and any significant other a better chance of a peaceful night.
4. Thinking inside the box
One of the other clever things about a conical spring is that it can lie totally flat when machine pressed. That means we can roll our mattresses into a box to conveniently deliver them to your door, up stairs and around tight corners - but they’ll unroll back into perfect shape for long-lasting support.
5. Engineered to last
Our mattresses are guaranteed for 10 years. Our confidence comes from knowing our high quality foams hold their shape and our lighter, more cleverly designed springs won’t start poking into your back over time.
