Hippo and Duck are proud to sleep on the Helsinki: it is one of the finest mattressess in the Select Range by Silentnight and contains Geltex®, a blend of highly elastic gel and air-permeable foam.
Geltex® is one of the newest innovations in sleep technology and has three major advantages over alternative fillings: first, the material is supremely breathable, so it can prevent overheating and maintain the ideal climate for sleep; second, the flexible properties of the gel allow it to evenly distribute your weight, which prevents the build up of pressure points; third, Geltex® provides optimal body support by responding to the contours of the body. Together, these benefits combine to create an unparalleled sleeping experience.
The mattress also contains Miracoil®, a continuous spring system that contains twice as many coils as a typical mattress to prevent ‘roll together’.
Plus, the fabric has been treated with Purotex®, an organic treatment that eliminates dust mites and mould, perfect for those who suffer with allergies or asthma.
For ease of care the Helsinki does not require seasonal turning and comes with a 5-year warranty.

Is a medium mattress going to support me correctly?
If you're of an average/lighter stature, a medium tension will be sufficient to support your weight. This is due to the springs being less rigid in this kind of mattress, therefore they won't be as strained under this kind of weight. If you're heavier than this weight group and use a medium mattress, you're at risk of putting these springs under too much weight, causing it to eventually deteriorate at a much quicker rate. Overall, this would mean that you would have to invest in a new mattress quicker.
What sleeping positions are best suited to a medium mattress?
A medium tension is a good compromise for two sleeping positions: back and side sleepers. Back sleepers usually require a firmer sleeping surface in order to adequately support the lower back. As for side sleepers, softer mattresses are better suited due to the extra cushioning that it can provide around the shoulders and hips. In turn, this will also promote healthy spine alignment. Therefore this makes a medium mattress a good midway point to provide both of these sleeping positions with enough support.
Mediumis the level of support to the body, suitable for all average weighted people. This is not a comfort rating.
Miracoilsprings are unique to Silentnight Beds, a continual wire frame system, preventing roll-together, with a firm tension.
