Every mattress is different in its own way. While there are many types to choose from, let’s begin with the 4 types of coil mattresses out there. Your local Sleepys will show you all of the options in today’s mattresses.
Types of Coils
1. Bonnell Coil
This coil has an hour glass shape which allows the inner part to compress with soft pressure and the rest of the spring provides deep down support. This type of system is the least expensive but also the least durable and is found in most budget mattresses. These types make for great dorm beds or guest beds. A bonnell system will only last about 3-5 years with daily use.
This system is made with one single piece of steel twisted into individual coils that are connected by helical lacing that runs the length of the mattress. The helical help prevent motion transfer. The idea is to feel less movement from another person sleeping in the bed throughout the night. The continuous coil system is ideal for those who suffer from back pain. This system is quite durable.
The tied Coil system is made up of individual coils that are connected with the helical lacing. This system allows the mattress to conform to your body and gives sturdy lumbar support. Tied coil systems provide the most firm support available. These mattresses are quite durable and often come with long warranties however they are not great at motion transfer issue. This mattress can attend to feel “bouncy”.
4. Marshall Coil
The Marshall coil is a softer coil because it is individually wrapped for a better body conforming ability. This mattress excels in motion transfer and is very durable. This system is ideal for adjustable bases and foundations. A recent dual coil in coil design is a newer update from the single coil system which enhances comfort while providing firm support.
Each of these systems has its advantages and disadvantages. The best thing to do is go down to your Sleepys store and try them all out.
