Overview

becky says

Today we've got a new product in the Sealy range and exclusive to Bensons for Beds. Called the Fairfield Extra Firm, this mattress looks to have a very niche specific audience that will see it be ideal for those with back pain looking for some orthopaedic relief. You've probably heard of Sealy before too, being one of the most popular mattress retailers in the world and the quality and workmanship they are renowned for is on full-display here.

Starting with the comfort layer which sits at the top of the mattress and information is somewhat limited, however, what we do know is you are getting a deep iFibre layer which is both soft and luxurious while aiding in driving that firm tension further toward the extra-firm segment. 

Onto the support layer and you get the fantastic orthopaedic ZD Support spring unit which is Sealy's firmest layer, giving a very firm feel that will delight those of a heavier body type, or those who are looking for relief around neck and back pain. This is combined with hand tufting throughout the mattress which helps to keep everything in the right places while also adding a further firm element to the product. 

Overall, while still a new product which is a bit too early for too many reviews, it's clear the product is going after the orthopaedic segment with the design of this mattress. With a low price point from a retailer you can trust and a brand that is renowned worldwide, it's clear this should be a consideration in many peoples basket.

Reasons to Buy

Purotex coating will prove invaluable for those with allergies, helping to ensure you sleep in a safe and allergen-reduced environment.

Strong edge to edge support and no roll-together thanks to the support layer.

Great price point for a limited time

Reasons to Avoid

Niche and only really going to be suitable for those who are heavier or are looking for additional support in the back and neck.

Key Performance Indicators KPI question mark

Our Key Performance Indicators are produced using a combination of specification-heavy algoritmic data points and user reviews. For example, a firm pocket spring support layer is more breathable and offers better back support but may prove unsuitable for side sleepers, the reverse is true for a soft-medium tension reflex foam support layer. This is one of 100+ datapoints considered when generating the below ratings.

Suitability

*Assuming average weight, suitability will vary dependant on body type, use the wizard above for a more tailored guide.
  • Back Sleepers
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • The amount of support offered from a mattress will vary depending on the firmness of the tension and the type of support layer used. Based on a person of average build.
  • Side Sleepers
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • If you sleep on your side you typically need a supportive tension that is not too firm, nor too soft. This is because your hips and shoulders need adequate sinkage.
  • Stomach Sleepers
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Stomach sleepers need a reasonable amount of tension in the base support layer to adequately offer body contouring and help prevent aches and pains. Results will vary based on your build.

Performance

  • Stability
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Depending on the type of support layer in place can have an impact on stability, edge to edge support and roll together prevention. Pocket springs of a firmer tension will have better stability than open coil soft tension, for example.

Odour

  • Initial Odour
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Materials in mattresses, particularly memory foam and rolled bed-in-a-box mattresses can have an initial odour, this is typically short term and reduces considerably within 24 hours.
  • Long Standing Odour
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Certain materials inside different mattresses can produce a small odour. Typically this is short term rather than long standing but there are minor exceptions.

What Makes The Sealy Fairfield Extra Firm Mattress Great?

Sealy’s firmest orthopaedic ZD Support spring unit mattress

An extra firm tension mattress is typically suited toward back and front sleepers as they provide a stable and even surface with a focus toward those who enjoy sleeping "on top" of their mattress rather than sinking into it.

Central zoning ‘power-pack’ for additional pressure relief

Part of the iFibre layer and exclusive to Sealy, this central zoning offers additional pressure relief and support that will help support your back and neck to give a more well-rounded relief that will leave you waking up feeling refreshed.

5-year guarantee

This is an exceptional guarantee that is fairly uncommon within the industry, this shows that the retailer and supplier both have huge confidence in the product that they are selling. Any problems in the first 5 years? Call them and they will sort it.

Firmness rating: Extra Firm

When we fall asleep, our muscles relax and what that does is it allows our body to decompress. But when we're sleeping on a too soft mattress, the muscles don't have enough support and they're not getting the proper relaxation.The benefits of a firm mattress are that you're going to sleep more soundly,  your back pain is going to be relieved and you're going to have less muscle aches and pains.

iFibre dense layer encourages a firmer feel

An extra firm tension mattress is typically suited toward back and front sleepers as they provide a stable and even surface with a focus toward those who enjoy sleeping "on top" of their mattress rather than sinking into it.

Tencel fibres regulates body temperature and keeps you cool and dry

Tencel fabric has unique qualities, qualities that allow it to repel dust mites and other allergens while also repelling water. Additionally, Tencel allows air to pass through it's fibres making it hugely breathable.

Hand-tufted finish for extra tautness

Hand tufting typically makes a mattress feel firmer due to how the stitching from the cover carries through the mattresses layers. It is a great way to keep everything tight and together within the different mattress layers and acts as an increased tension providing better back and neck support.

Edge Guard for complete edge-to-edge support

Edge to edge support is hugely beneficial in a mattress as it gives you the full surface area of the product to spread out. This ultimately means you can utilise the edges of the product without fear of dipping or rolling out.

Featuring Purotex which cleans up allergens and reduces humidity, endorsed by Allergy UK

The Hypoallergenic and UK allergy approved mattress ensures you will sleep soundly through the night without experiencing any of the usual symptoms of allergies such as itchy, watery or puffy eyes, sneezing or a runny nose.

Mattress height: 27cm

27cm is quite deep for a mattress and comes with enough depth to feature many good quality components and comfort layers necessary to get a good nights sleep

Made in Britain

These are made and manufactured in the Great Britain, meaning that they all meet the same exceptional quality and durability that we expect from genuine Great Britain manufacturing.

Customer Reviews For The Sealy Fairfield Extra Firm Mattress

Based on 48 reviews
3

The new mattresses are very comfortable & warm BUT we are very disappointed in that they do not "spring back" to a level mattress - although I am only about 13 stone in weight, there appears to be a regular depression or hollow where my hip rests when I sleep. Is this how it should be ? We had hoped we would have bought a top quality new mattress which remined firm & level

5

Fantastic mattress have had it just over a fortnight now and must admit I'm sleeping better now than have in a long time and waking up feeling fresh and pretty much aches and pains free our mattress is extra firm so very solid but a major change from the memory foam one we had

4

Great Mattress. the only problem I had was the pillow as it is not worth the money i have paid for it. I only used it once and had the worst night sleep. the I Gel Side Sleeper Mattress is not good at all.

5

So pleased we chose this mattress we have had medium firmness before and suffered with back problems but this extra firm mattress is the best, better nights sleep and wake up with no aches and pains

4

Was OK once I had adjusted to it after having a bad mattress. Have notice that the middle of the mattress has a lump down the middle after 3 weeks of sleeping on it. But overall not bad

5

My partner has a bad back and since sleeping on this mattress he has stopped complaining every morning- which is excellent ;)
