Mattress Buying Guide

We know how important a good night’s sleep is and selecting the right mattress is the key to achieving this. A good mattress can last for up to 10 years so investing in a good quality mattress now will save you having to replace a poor one in a few years. Our ranges include Single (3ft), Double (4ft 6”) and King Size (5ft) mattresses in a variety of styles offering different levels of firmness and designs. Read on for the full guide on our mattresses.

Mattress Technical Info

Firmness Rating
Our rating system allows you to see exactly how firm or soft the mattress is with a simple 1-5 rating system, with 1 being soft and 5 being very firm.

Spring Gauge
The gauge of the coils determines the firmness and support of the mattress. The spring gauge rating refers to how thick the spring is – the lower the number, the thicker the spring and, the firmer the mattress. Technically referred to as 13.5 Gauge – Soft, 13.0 Gauge - Medium and 12.5 Gauge - Firm.

Pocket Springs
The springs are individually nested and sewn either side with calico whilst a flat steel isolating bar around the perimeter at the first spring keeps all the springs together. Fillings are placed on top and are tufted with several laces which is the most efficient and traditional way of keeping all the fillings together, which extends the lifespan of the product.

Gauge Rod
The gauge rod is around the perimeter of the mattress and provides extra strength and support.

Orthopaedic Mattress
Orthopaedic mattresses are designed to support the spine and back by holding your spine the correct alignment which helps to prevent the build-up of tension and pressure. These tend to be firmer than normal mattresses.

Memory Foam
This high density foam has been developed by NASA and reacts to temperature and your body. The foam has the ability to soften as it warms allowing your body to mould the perfect shape into the mattress. Pressure points are minimised and the spine is held in perfect alignment. Coolmax technology also allows you to stay cool in the hot summer months and remain warm on chilly winter nights. Memory foam also makes it impossible for dust mites to penetrate the mattress creating a cleaner and more hygienic mattress.

Latex
A natural product that is harvested from rubber trees, Latex distributes weight evenly and eliminates pressure points. It is hypoallergenic, anti-microbial and virtually dust might resistant, so is ideal for allergy sufferers.

Depth
This refers to how deep the mattress is from the top side to the bottom side.
