A single open spring mattress is still one of the most popular mattresses on the market today. An inexpensive option, coil sprung interior mattresses are used widely for children and adults.
Constructed from springs that have been arranged in rows connected to each other via a spiral helical wire, a single open coil mattress is strengthened and held in tension through an outer perimeter rod. This process helps the mattress retain its shape and makes for an extremely durable design.
The number of springs used in an open coil single mattress will vary and its tension differs depending on its gauge (thickness). A typical 12.5g mattress will provide firm support and a higher gauge will provide a softer tension.
The Myers Stature 3' Mattress is a Firm Response open coil spring mattress providing twice the comfort and support. With its thick layer of responsive memory foam for pressure relieving comfort, this model is edge supported by heavy gauge wire for extra support.
A single continuous spring mattress differs slightly as it contains smaller coils and has lighter gauge wires. Formed from a single length of wire, the mattress springs are linked vertically as opposed to horizontally.
Another great value for money models is the Sleeptight Bronze 3' Mattress. Built upon Sleeptight's renowned Bonnell Open Spring System, the Sleeptight Bronze single mattress has quality fillings and is finished in a soft knit fabric for extra comfort.
The Sweet Dreams Choir 3' Mattress incorporates Sweet Dreams' unique Sleepzone® springs with a double cushion-top border and quilted sleeping surface to provide a soft cushioning feel. This firm support mattress is finished with a traditional tufted top with a Damask cover.
