How do king size zip and link mattresses work?
Two separate mattresses?
Zip and link mattresses are super versatile because you can go from two single beds to one king size mattress with the simplicity of a zip. They are brilliant for guest bedrooms where you often need to switch between two and one sleeping solutions. Zip and link mattresses are also ideal for partners who share a bed but have different sleeping preferences. This allows each to have a side of the bed that caters to their sleep needs whilst still being able to share a bed. If you like the idea of zip and link mattresses but wish for a larger size, check out our super king size mattress zip and link options too.
Different mattress tensions?
If you and your partner share a bed but have different sleep preferences, invest in a king size zip and link mattress with varying tensions. For example, if one of you prefers to sleep on their side, you can opt for a soft or medium tension mattress. This will provide cushioning to pressure points and promote healthy spine alignment. Alternatively, if the other prefers to sleep on their back or front, a firm or extra firm mattress tension will ensure they're supported throughout the night. For anyone who likes to sleep in all positions, then medium firm support is neither too soft nor firm to support each position.

What size are king size zip and link mattresses?
When the two mattresses are zipped together, the king size zip and link mattress dimensions are 5'0" wide and 6'6" long, 150cm by 200cm. However, when the two beds are detached, they equate to the sizes of two small single mattresses. The dimensions of these small single mattresses are 2'6" wide and 6'6" long, or 75cm by 200cm.
What types of zip and link mattresses are there?
Because a zip-link mattress is made up of two halves combined, it must feel like they aren't two separate sleeping solutions. For the two halves to come seamlessly together, the mattress composition needs to be high quality with continuity and consistency. This is why our king-size zip and link mattresses are pocket sprung, offering fantastic support and comfort. A pocket spring is an individually moving spring encased in its fabric pocket. A pocket sprung mattress can contain hundreds to thousands of these springs, which allows the mattress surface to respond to the contours of your body as you sleep. Pocket spring mattresses are great for supplying total body support and relieving pressure on joints and the spine.
The spring count of our zip link mattresses ranges between 1000 and 3400 pocket springs, and the mattress firmness range spans from soft to extra firm. On top of this, many of our zip and link mattresses are filled with natural fillings. We advise anyone affected by hay fever or dust mite allergies to opt for a bed without natural fillings. This is because these fibres have larger pore sizes, enabling dust mites to pass through easily and build up. Natural fillings have many benefits, such as breathability, absorption and insulation, but aren't hypoallergenic.
