Suitable for both divans and bed frames, a good quality 5' open spring mattress is a great choice. A relatively inexpensive option, open sprung mattresses are still one of the most popular products on the market today.
Constructed from springs that have been arranged in rows connected to each other via a spiral helical wire, a king size 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 Respa Backcare Supreme 5' Mattress is part of the Respa Healthcare Collection. The inclusion of High Density foam, layered on top of Respa's renowned inner spring system makes for an excellent Orthopaedic solution.
The number of springs used in an open coil mattress will vary, with a typical 5’ mattress containing approximately 325 springs. The mattress tensionwill differ too depending on its gauge or thickness, a typical 12.5g mattress will provide firm support and a higher gauge will provide a softer tension.
The Sweet Dreams Chamber 5' Mattress incorporates Sleepzone® springs for extra support and a luxury micro-quilted knitted top for added comfort. Complete with a breathable 3D damask border, this open spring mattress comes with four handles and is 25cm deep.
A good alternative is the king size continuous spring mattress. Incorporating smaller coils and lighter gauge wires, the mattress springs in this design are linked vertically as opposed to horizontally.
