What is a pocket sprung mattress?
Pocket sprung mattresses offer superior comfort, in a range of support levels to suit your needs. Individually responsive to your movements as you sleep, each individual pocket spring works independently to offer personalised support where you need it most.
Are pocket sprung mattresses expensive?
A pocket sprung mattress does not need to be overly expensive. In many cases, they are more cost effective than a comparable open coil unit and in real terms, they are cheaper now than they were many years ago. Bear in mind though that the bulk of pocket sprung mattresses are now mass produced. The ultimate pocket spring is calico encased, used by the likes of Vi-Spring and Savoir beds (our Artisan Range is an ideal Vi-Spring alternative). We can’t think of any other manufacturer who uses calico encased pocket springs, but there will be less than five manufacturers in this country who do so.

Pocket sprung mattress reviews
We recommend these if there’s a size difference between you and your partner, as it minimises the risk of you rolling towards each other during the night making your nights sleep much more luxurious, with individual small springs housed in separate fabric pockets. Springs work independently to respond to individual body weight. Stitched sides for strong, stable edges – hand stitching is a clear sign of great craftsmanship and quality.
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.
The only disadvantage to a pocket sprung mattress over a coil mattress is the price! Due to the craftsmanship involved, pocket sprung mattresses are usually going to be more expensive than the coil equivalent.

Pocket Sprung Mattresses Buying Guide
A pocket sprung mattress is quite simply the very best that money can buy and a sounds nights sleep is the most sacred thing money can buy. When you consider that a quality mattress will last between 8-10 years the overall price is not a great deal more than buying 2 or 3 inferior quality mattress that will lose tension and sag and may cause sleepless nights and back problems.
Each spring acts independently to allow the contours of the body to be gently supported.
Consider that a standard mattress has 325 springs and when buying a pocket sprung mattress you are ranging from 1000, 1200, 1400, 1500, 2000, 2800, 3000, 4000 springs, though in reality you don’t need greater than 2000 unless your over 30 Stone.
The Pocket Sprung Mattress is ideal if there is a weight and size variation between you and your partner. The individual springs will act to take the weight of your partner only so you won’t be lifted or roll due to the impact of your partners movements. In a traditional open coil system the springs are interwoven, so when pressure is applied to the spring at one end it can have an effect on the springs at the other end causing the ‘roll together’ and a feeling of being bounced up when your partner sits or moves on the bed. These are problems eroded by a pocket sprung mattress.
The Pocket Sprung Mattress is perfect for a slatted bed frame. Memory foam and Visco foam mattress are not a suitable choice for a slatted base bed as they don’t offer the same support.
Pocket springs are rows of small diameter, 16 to 17 gauge wire, parallel or barrel-shaped springs, each housed separately in a fabric pocket. The rows of springs are then clipped, tied or glued together. The spring count of a pocket sprung mattress can vary considerably depending on the diameter of the springs.
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. Spring counts can vary dramatically from 600 to 5,000. Typically, the higher the spring count, the better the support.
Although the spring count is a factor in mattress quality, don’t be fooled by numbers alone. A mattress crammed with inferior springs will not be better than one with less, more quality springs. Look at the range of specifications including the materials used to top and fill the mattress – this is what is important is defining the quality (and price) of pocket spring mattresses.
Soft, Medium, Firm, Extra Firm / Orthopaedic pocket sprung mattress
Spring wire diameter is sometimes shown on product descriptions, not to be confused with spring gauges. It shows you how thick the wire is for that spring unit. The thicker the spring wire the firmer the support you will get from it as it’s harder to compress. The gauge refers to the torsion, push-pull measurement which tells you how resilient/firm a mattress spring is. An example of this is an orthopedic mattress which has a gauge of 12 and is very firm.
We have a handy table that allows you to see the spring wire diameter we use in our range and the tension that the spring is set at. We also, unlike many competitors, allow you to see what the weight tolerance is for these springs.
|Spring Tension||Wire diameter||Weight Range|
|Soft||1.2mm||Upto 10 stone|
|Firm||1.6mm||16 stone plus|
|Extra Firm / Orthopaedic||1.9mm||20 stone plus|
