A good quality mattress with the right base can make the difference between having a good night’s sleep or a fitful one. The correct mattress aids deeper, more refreshing sleep by giving you better support. Considering a premium quality mattress can last up to 7 years, buying a new mattress is a long term investment and you should buy the best you can afford. The main types of mattresses include Open Coil or Continuous Spring, pocket spring, latex, gel or gel-infused and memory foam mattresses. There are also a range of health-related mattresses available including orthopaedic mattresses.
Open Coil spring mattresses are the most widely used type of support system today. Arranged in rows and connected to one another. The tension provided by the open coil mattresses varies depending on its gauge or thickness. A recent mattress on to the market is the roll-up mattress. Designed to be easily transported and unpacked in minutes, vacuum packed mattresses come in a range of spring and foam interiors.
At the premium end of the market, pocket spring mattresses contain hundreds of individual springs that are sealed in a fabric pocket and stitched together. This unique and increasingly popular arrangement results in a support system that prevents the springs from rolling into each over when under pressure.
Latex is a premium bedding product providing support where it is needed most by contouring to the body's natural shape. Derived from the sap of Indonesian Hardwoods, latex mattresses have a distinctive, resilient feel and are incredibly durable. The aerated, self-ventilated open cell interior of a Latex mattress helps to disperse body moisture helping to maintain a consistently fresh, dry sleep surface.
Memory Foam Mattresses are renowned for their body contouring comfort. Slowly responding to body temperature and weight, these mattresses take the shape of the user to provide unrivalled support and comfort. Allowing the best natural sleeping posture with pressure evenly distributed across the mattress area, memory foam mattresses offer relief for back, neck and joint pain.
Gel mattresses or gel-infused mattresses generally include a combination of gel with traditional fillings including innerspring constructions, memory foam, natural fillings, or a combination of all these fillings. The gel may be infused or in some instances may be contained within a layer to create a different feel to that of the traditional mattress.
Orthopaedic mattresses support and softly surround the body to ensure that aches and pains are reduced during sleep hours. An increasingly popular choice, orthopaedic mattresses can offer the firmness you require, with cushion comforting softness to prevent pressure point build-up.
