The Phoenix Backcare Extra Firm Mattress is an orthopaedic mattress that focuses on the back pain niche, relying heavily on customers that require a more board-like feel to the mattress tension. Ideal specifically for those who sleep on their stomach or back, this may be one to miss for side sleepers. Read on to learn more about the compound and materials utilised in this new mattress from Bensons for Beds.
Let's start with the support layer. Featuring an impressive 1000 pocket springs this base layer represents great value for money and is normally found in mid-high quality mattresses across the world. The pocket spring support typically performs better than alternatives and the firm wound springs are ideal for those who require less bounce in their sleep. Side sleepers should avoid the Phoenix back care as your side profile will not contour sufficiently to such a firm base and as such would recommend you consider a medium tension instead.
Onto that comfort ayer and the Phoenix has a natural wool layer which is both dense and breathable. The benefits of wool is widely documented with the material proving to be both breathable and eco friendly. One of the primary complaints sleepers have surrounds getting too hot or cold while they sleep. Thanks to this comfort layer you are kept at a mid range temperature throughout all seasons which helps to ensure a longer and deeper night of rest.
Guarantees for the Phoenix are good also, with an impressive 5 years being covered in the event there are any manufacturing issues that occur. When you consider the average lifespan of a mattress the guarantee on offer here almost covers you for the full life expectancy of an average product prior to replacement.
