Mattress pocket springs

Pocket spring mattresses - spring count.

The spring count measurement in the UK is based upon the amount of springs within a 5' or King size mattress. Some companies offer mattresses with incredibly high spring counts, we feel that this is done purely to impress the buyer. Our mattresses, tried and tested over many years use traditional pocket springs, made of vanadium steel, housed in individual calico pockets, which we believe are the ultimate for support, comfort and longevity.
