Having retained its popularity through the years, open coil mattresses are one of the most enduring and durable mattress choices today. An inexpensive option, 6' coil spring mattresses are used widely by bed manufacturers throughout the world with the most widely used type being the Bonnell spring.
Constructed from springs that have been arranged in rows connected to each other via a spiral helical wire, super king size open coil spring mattresses are strengthened and held in tension through an outer perimeter rod. This process not only helps the mattress retain its shape but it is extremely durable.
The number of springs used varies, but a typical 6’ mattress may contain more than 300; more for higher quality models. The gauge, or thickness, determines the level of support offered by a coil spring mattress with a 12.5g providing firm support.
The Myers Saturn Flexistore 6' Mattress is a single spring mattress offering firmer support. Featuring layers of rich white fibre for added support, this mattress has integral cotton felt tufts for extra stability, and includes anti-bacterial Silverdry technology to keep it clean and fresh.
A similar product is the continuous spring mattress. Incorporating smaller coils and with lighter gauge wires, these 6' mattresses are usually formed from a single length of wire linked vertically as opposed to horizontally.
The Sweet Dreams Percussion 6' Mattress is a firm feel, open spring mattress featuring a 12.5 gauge spring unit and firm fibre fillings. Traditionally hand tufted, this open spring mattress is finished with a stylish a viscose check cover.
