When you sleep you also sweat, when this happens it generally leaks into the mattress.

5 Year Warranty
5 Years of warranty is huge in an industry that typically only gives 1year. This means that both the retailer and the manufacturer both have extremel confidence in this mattresses ability to stand the test of time. After all, daily usage of a mattress racks up a decent allotment of hours, so to offer a warranty of 5 years is astounding and makes this mattress a top pick.
A cotton mattress cover of fairly good quality and often preferable to damask covers and weaved covers. Your preference will vary though.
28cm of depth is a good amount of room for both a comfort layer and a construction. While higher mattress depth does not always correlate to better quality mattresses, it is normally a fairly good indicator. With this size of mattress you might require deeper mattress covers.

Pocket spring typically lasts longer than open coil due to this.
Reinforced mattress edge
One of the most common complaints in the industry is against mattresses with a weak mattress edge. It can often result in the user feeling like they are going to fall off the side of the bed and bed avoided. This mattress has a reinforced edge, something that helps ensure that particular scenario is avoided when you get close to a mattress edge while sleeping.
Fire resistant does not mean the product will never catch fire, rather, it will not go up in flames quite so quickly. Resistant to fire in the same way that I am resistant to kisses, sooner or later you end up giving in.
Includes turning handles
Oh turning handles are pointless I hear you say. Just try flipping and turning this product without handles. It can be a pain. Remember that mattresses should be both rotated and flipped frequently, not a problem if you are opting for a sinle, but those doubles and kings can get heavy. Handles are very good.
Luxury wool, typically found in mattresses in a shredded and felted capacity is an upholstery fibre often used as a top comfort layer, but sometimes found further down in those mattress layers as part of the support structure
