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

  • Breathability
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Mattresses that feature breathable materials help promote airflow and keep you cool making for a more hygienic night's sleep.
  • Turning on mattress
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Certain materials like memory foam can make it difficult to move about on the mattress while you toss and turn. Same too for pillow tops which can create a cloud like sensation which can make manoeuvrability challenging.
  • 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.

Ease of Use

  • Turning handles
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Mattresses typically need to be rotated frequently and having turning handles can be massively beneficial, particularly in larger sizes which can become fairly heavy.

Odour

What Makes The Sealy Activsleep Geltex Pocket 2800 Mattress Great?

Part of Sealy's Activsleep range - designed for active lifestyles

Featuring a breathable, cool layer of Geltex

The 6cm deep Geltex layer relieves pressure points, aches and pains

The luxurious Euro top is the perfect place to rest after a long day

A Euro top gives you enhanced comfort

Perfectly balanced medium feel - the best of both worlds

A medium tension mattress like this is the goldilocks of mattress tensions. Not too soft, nor too firm, medium is typically suitable for the vast majority of people that are looking for a good nights sleep. If you are of average build without back or neck problems, this should be a suitable product. If you are of lower BMI and a side sleeper, consider a softer mattress, whereas if you are of a higher BMI and suffer neck and back pain, consider a firmer tension.

An impressive 2800 pocket springs provide total body support

Pocket springs are probably the best support layer you can get in a mattress helping to provide measured and even support across your body where you need it most. What's more, the unique feeling of pocket springs hugs each point of your body, offering contouring across each pressure point to relieve aches and pains. Lesser models will frequently include alternatives to pocket springs like open coil traditional springs and reflex foam. Do not be fooled, while pocket springs are often slightly more money than their counterparts, you are typically getting a better spring system and base layer.When it comes to pocket springs and the quality within, the more springs generally the better as the density will increase contouring ever-closer to your body as you sleep. 

No motion transfer between you and your partner

Reinforced and sturdy mattress border - no rolling off

A good rigid support layer with full edge to edge support means you do not get the sinking characteristic associated with poorer quality mattresses when you move toward the edge of the mattress. This is great as it prevents falling out of the bed at night, but also prevents roll off and roll together allowing both you and your partner to have uninterrupted deep sleep.

Sealy's Unirail reinforces the mattress edge and gives you greater sleeping space

Edge support is really important and often found in the more premium end of mattresses. This edge support allows the edges of the mattress to have the same degree of tension as the inside of the product giving you confidence in the edges and helping to prevent roll of through the strengthened edge.

Micro-quilted, knitted cover is beautifully soft to the touch

This mattress comes with a quilted cover. Many people overlook the cover as a need for consideration however, the right cover can add additional comfort and in the case of this one here, adds quilted comfort that offers a soft but hard-wearing cover that is both breathable and stylish.

Hypoallergenic for your peace of mind

Hypoallergenic means that the materials used in the mattress are relatively unlikely to cause an allergic reaction. That's not to say they won't, rather, every care has been made to reduce the risk for those that do suffer from allergies.

Purotex probiotics help guard against bacteria and dust mites

Purotex is a uniquely engineered coating that has been proven to create a clean, fresh and hygienic sleeping environment by neutralising the bacteria that cause odours and allergies. With Purotex, you can take comfort in knowing you're giving your family the best night's sleep they'll ever have.

Allergy UK approved for a healthier sleep

Allergies are one of the most common health problems in the UK. According to Allergy UK, up to 1 in 5 people suffer from allergies. That’s a lot of people!The Allergy UK Seal of Approval is a mark of excellence. It’s awarded to the best allergy products that help people with allergies live a better life. The products are checked against high standards, and only award the seal to those that meet our strict criteria.

Adaptive technology helps keep you cool and fresh

Single-sided, no need to turn - simply rotate end-to-end

A single sided mattress is typical for the industry and relates to how  a mattress has the comfort layer on one side of the mattress. only This means that the mattress only needs to be rotated rather than flipped. The benefit of single sided mattresses is that they require less upkeep in that there's no flipping, but also, there's less components involved in the creation which saves costs.

Built-in turning handles make it easy to move the mattress when you need it

Depth: 33cm

33cm is considered deep for a mattress and is more than enough room to house good quality components and spring systems, along with generous amounts of comfort layer materials. You may find you require deeper sheets than standard with this type of mattress however, the cost for these in negligible.

Made in the UK

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

5 year guarantee

A 5 year guarantee is quite rare in the industry and is a great indicator of the retailer beleiving in their product. Anything go wrong in the next 5 years, no drama, get it replaced.

Pocket springs

Pocket springs are like natures own springy piece of comfort, except they are not from nature. Alas, pocket springs are a very good part of a mattress and often found in the more premium models. Lower quality products will frequently use open coil spring setups, where pocket springs house each spring in a tiny pocket for additional stability and continued support. Pocket spring typically lasts longer than open coil due to this.

Mini pocket springs

Mini pocket springs, also known as micro pocket springs, are a thin layer of pocket springs that are becoming increasingly popular with the rise of bed-in-a-box retailers. This technology allows you all the support enhancements of a pocket sprung mattress, but with the ability to have the mattress delivered rolled and portable. Reducing logistics and transport costs and thereby reducing costs for both the retailer and the consumer.

Geltex

Geltex is a top layer patented by the Silentnight group and applicable against many Silentnight and Sealy mattresses. It is the new alternative to memory foam that offers all the benefits of memory foam with non of the downsides. When we talk about the benefits of Geltex over memory foam, we're talking about better breathability and better cooling and ventilation properties. This means the age-old issue of getting too hot with memory foam is gone, left in it's place is all the pros and comfort properties of memory foam.

Knitted Cover

It is common in the industry to have a knitted cover, these covers can come in a variety of patterns but are typically hard wearing and do not present problems for consumers.

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.

Hypoallergenic

This product is unlikely to cause any sort of allergic reaction. Ideal if you suffer from any sort of allergy problems

Approved by Allergy UK

If you have allergies then you may want to consider a mattress like this. Approved by Allergy UK, this product has fillings that are approved for those that suffer from a host of common allergies and while there is no guarantee that this product will prevent allergies, it should prevent further problems for those that do suffer

Pressure Relief

One of the big complaints when settling into a new mattress is that it does not feel as comfortable as they hoped, where this mattress shines is in the enhanced pressure relief that it offers. Each part of your body exerts different amounts of pressure against the mattress and through the use of springs and foams, these products are able to offer significant pressure relief as a result across the entire body.

Medium

A Medium firmness mattress is the most common build offered due to the range of suitability offered in such a mattress. This type of mattress will be better suited toward averagely weighted people, while lighter people should opt for a medium-light, and heavier people considering a medium-firm.

33cm deep

The industry standard for mattress depth is 7 inches, with most offering a comfortable 10 to 14 inches. Generally, the higher the load, the deeper it needs to be. But quality is important as a well-built 10-inch mattress can be equally as comfortable and supportive as a budget 12-inch mattress. This 13 inch mattress sits at the higher end of the scale, worth consideration for those requiring support for higher weights.

Single-sided

Single sided means only one side is comfy. Positives are you only need to rotate the mattress occassionaly rather than the more cumbersome rotate and flip. Downside is the lifespan of the product may suffer as a result, only marginal, but worth mentioning.

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.

Handcrafted in the UK

Handcrafted in the UK means that the product is built here, by people being paid a fair and honest wage using certified and safe products of good quality and construction. UK manufacturing is some of th best in the world and all of that is reflected in this product

Fire Resistant

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.

Approved by the National Bed Federation

The NBF is one of the most prestigious awarding federations in the industry, helped slightly by the fact that it is one of the only, however, it is still a great source of comfort knowing that this product holds approval by the team

Customer Reviews For The Sealy Activsleep Geltex Pocket 2800 Mattress

Based on 66 reviews
5

After a month of trialling a Dormeo memory foam mattress in a box, I acquired back, shoulder and hip ache which I had never suffered from previously. Those aches soon became history after using the Sealy Geltex 2800.First impressions were that this is a heavy (46kg) and very deep (33cm) mattress made of premium quality materials and excellently made without any finishing faults whatsoever. I was a little concerned that it was perhaps too firm for a medium rating but, after 3 weeks of rotating weekly as per Sealy's instructions, it softened up. The best mattress I have slept on in many years. Thank you Sealy.

5

It is one of the best mattresses I have had. I didn't even need to adjust to it as was incredibly comfortable and supportive. Another good point and feature is the edge support that helps combat the feeling of rolling off anx better stability and support when you are sitting on the edge of the bed etc. Overall it terms of materials, support, features and level of comfort, this mattress is truly excellent!!! I love it!!

5

Brilliant mattress. Slept on it in a hotel we stayed in, and fell in love an ordered one straight away. Just moving into a new house, so new bed put together and mattress on bed, just can't wait to move in and get a good comfy nights sleep again.

5

Bought it 4 weeks ago. Very comfortable. Much softer than most hotel beds, but still gives enough support. The soft part is just the top pillow bit. Feels like sleeping on a cloud, very relaxing. Very happy with it.

5

Selected after careful consideration (and comparisons) and proved to be exactly as described and thus expected. Comfortable in all respects. As expected its mass (weight) means that care has to be taken rotating it.

5

I bought this as I had a very similar sealy mattress previously.Its extremely comfortable, supportive and I don't move when my husband turns over so I'm not disturbed

5

All the claims regarding support are completely valid. Although less firm than the US mattress that it replaced, the uniformity and autonomy of support more than compensate.

5

Love mattress. Great support right up to the edge. Very well made with good quality materials. Perfect depth for my bed frame. Gives a great nights sleep. Price was superb.
