Choosing the support and comfort the bed provides will depend on the number of springs used. Open coil beds vary based on the gauge or thickness of the wire incorporated. A typical 12.5gauge bed will provide firmer support, with a 13.5guage offering medium support. The number of springs used also affects the bed’s support levels. Typically though a super king size open sprung bed will have 325 or more springs.
The Sweet Dreams Percussion 6' Divan Bed is a firm feel, open spring bed featuring a 12.5 gauge spring unit and firm fibre fillings. Traditionally hand tufted with a viscose check cover, the Percussion is available with a choice of platform top base with two or four drawer options, or ottoman storage.
Most open spring beds will have the metal coils run through the width of the bed which are then strengthened and held in tension through an outer perimeter rod. As well as strengthening the bed, this also helps to retain its shape. The Myers Lilac Charm 6' Divan Bed incorporates layers of rich white fibre for added support, making it ideal for back sufferers. Benefiting from anti-bacterial Silverdry technology, this bed has a luscious smooth quilted finish and is edge supported by heavy gauge wire for extra support.
Continuous Spring beds have smaller coils and the gauge of wires is usually lighter. This higher spring count is usually formed from a single length of wire and the bed springs are linked vertically as opposed to horizontally. This composition gives a smooth, responsive feel and also helps prevent roll together.
