Sprung mattresses are the most popular type of mattress as springs provide a fantastic “core” at the centre of mattresses. Springs provide comfort and support as they are compressed.
At the heart of our mattresses is the Relyon classic pocket spring. Manufactured at our factory in Wellington, Somerset, using a specially developed steel alloy that includes Titanium for class leading strength, comfort and durability. Comfort and support is never determined by a number. All of our pocket spring systems are considerately engineered using the latest steel alloys, the perfect wire gauge, tension and geometry. The result? The perfect pocket spring designed to work in harmony with your body.
Individual springs in their own separate pockets move independently and so provide the best postural support. The individual pocket springs follow and support your body shape and weight. Even as you move around only the springs directly underneath your body compress and gently cradle you for the most comfortable feel. A pocket sprung mattress is a great choice if you or your partner tends to turn a lot during the night.
Changing the spring construction, thickness (gauge) of the wire, height of each spring and the quantity alters the tension, feel and weight distribution properties of each mattress. We offer many of our mattresses in a choice of tensions also, providing you the ability to tailor the mattresses’ support to suit you. Higher spring counts offer more supportive comfort.
Our better pocket springs are sewn into hardwearing calico fabric pockets and hand-nested and hand-centre tied for the ultimate support. The pocketed springs are hand-nested in a honeycomb pattern to produce a unit for the centre of the mattress. Linen cord is threaded through the springs to tie the springs and secure the nesting.
In mattresses with a double layer of pocket springs, the upper springs shape to the body contours while the lower layer absorbs changes in weight distribution for the ultimate in comfort and support.
We also feature “zoning” in some of our mattresses. Firm perimeter support mattresses feature firmer springs around the perimeter of the mattress to add strength to the edge of the mattress to allow you to use the whole surface of the mattress as a sleeping area.
Tri zone body support mattresses provide softer support zones at the head and foot of the mattress and firmer support in the middle to provide the correct level of support and spinal alignment. 5 zone pocket springs units have two firmer support zones to follow the contours of your shoulders and hips with three softer support zones in between to provide perfect anatomical support and reduce pressure points for a more restful night’s sleep.
If the bed is for two people, it is also important for both to try the beds. Zip and Link beds are a great solution if you require different mattress tensions to suit their personal level of comfort and support.
Open coil mattresses typically are an less expensive type of sprung mattress. This spring unit is strong and durable, and offers superb resilience for a traditional feel. Only our guest beds have a choice to choose an open coil mattress(es).
