Pocket Spring Vs. Coil Spring Mattresses

Pocket Spring Vs. Coil Spring Mattresses

We are always asked: “What are the differences between coil and pocket sprung mattresses?”

So, to help you choose the right mattress, we’ve put together this blog to help you know the differences and get the most out of your next mattress.  

What are they:

Let’s take a look. At the centre, or core, of your mattress you should find either a coil spring unit or a pocket spring unit.

If the mattress has no springs at the core or is just made of foam layers then it's really not worth considering. 

Pocket sprung mattresses offer more support than open coiled. The individual springs that make up the mattress are housed in their own little pockets and work independently of each other. The springs in a coil sprung unit are all directly connected to each other and move together.

What problem do Pocket Spring mattresses solve:

Because the springs move independently they offer more support for your body, and are ideal for people of two different weights as pocket-sprung mattresses reduce that ‘roll-together’ feeling. What we mean by this is you’ll feel the movement of your partner more with a coil spring mattress.

Coil spring mattresses were a huge step forward from older mattresses that consisted of large amounts of raw fibres and no spring units. But the technology has moved on and you will now get much better comfort and support from a pocket spring design.

So, if you are looking online or heading down to a showroom for a new mattress then make sure you look for a pocket spring mattress rather than a coil spring mattress.
