Technically referred to as, 13.5 Gauge - Soft mattress, 13.0 Gauge - Medium and 12.5 Gauge – Firm.

The rounded bonnell springs are all connected to each other by a helical wire, and the number of springs within a standard double (135cm) mattress usually consists of 288 units.

Pocketed Springs Mattress

A pocket sprung mattress is made up of individual springs that are covered in their own material and nested together inside the rod edge that holds them together.

They are considered to be the most efficient spring system for mattresses, as they follow & mould round to the contours of the body, enabling total support.

Latex Mattresses Logo


Latex is another popular material used within mattresses. The natural elasticity of a Latex mattress allows it to spring back (instant rebound property) into shape as you move in bed and find your most comfortable sleeping position. It is one of the most responsive materials on the market, thus acting as an excellent pressure relieving source.

Being derived from the sap of rubber trees (Hevea Brasiliensis) in contrast to synthetic man made foams, helps with breathability (depending on % of natural Latex) & longevity of the mattress.

Mattress With Pocketed Springs

As the springs are individual & are not connected together they allow for individual support, thus limiting the feel & movement of two people on a mattress. Please see the pocket sprung video for a clearer demonstration:
