What are pocket springs?
Our pocket sprung mattresses have between 800 to 8000 springs inside a bed. The individual pocket springs are wrapped in their fabric pocket, allowing each spring to move independently. The many individual pocket springs will mean minimal motion transfer, and your partner won't be disturbed at night.
How does a pocket sprung mattress support me?
They provide total body support and relieve pressure points such as the back, shoulders, hips and joints. With pressure applied, the springs will move to the contours of your body for whichever sleeping position you're resting in. Each pocket spring mattress can have various springs, some with a higher spring count that offer a variety of firmness ratings. More pocket springs do not necessarily mean more support, but a pocket spring mattress will always be able to support your body weight.
