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

  • 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.

What Makes The Sealy Activsleep Geltex Pocket Pillow Top 2200 Mattress Great?

Part of Sealy's Activsleep collection for healthy lifestyles

Cool and breathable Geltex provides incredible comfort and pressure relief

Stay cool Gel helps keep your body cool while you sleep. Gel is a great alternative to memory foam and even latex, both of which can cause you to get too hot without proper airflow (memory foam is the worst for this). This gel also operates as a part of the comfort layer and provides a high degree of comfort.

Geltex soothes aches and pains, helping you to wake feeling refreshed

Featuring a luxurious pillow top for enhanced comfort

Mattresses traditionally have a support layer with a comfort layer on top. Pillow top mattresses come with a further comfort layer that sits on top of the traditional comfort layer to give additional softness and a deeper nights sleep. Pillow tops are usually found on more premium products.

Gentle support in a medium firmness rating - perfect if you love a more cushioned feel

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.

2200 individual pocket springs ensure your body is correctly supported

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.

Pocket springs contour to your unique shape for support where you need it most

Pocket springs are of considerable better quality than their poorer traditional open coil counterparts. Put simply, pocket spring contours better and supports better than other base layers. When it comes to pocket spring mattresses, the general rule of thumb is that the more springs the better. There are exceptions, of course, but for the best part this is likely to be a good quality mattress based on it's base layer.

Adaptive cover technology helps wick away moisture for a cooler, fresher sleep

Due to the Natural airflow that is able to flow through the breathable materials within this mattress, the mattress is able to remain 3 degrees cooler while you sleep allowing you to sleep better, deeper and cooler.

Extra support along the mattress border and more sleep space - Sealy's sturdy Unirail prevents roll-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.

Smooth knitted fabric cover is soft to the touch and micro-quilted to secure all the fillings

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.

The cover is infused with Purotex which actively works to keep your mattress clean

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.

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.

Hypoallergenic and approved by Allergy UK

Hypoallergenic mattresses are unlikely to cause allergies due to the materials involved, while the mattresses are not guaranteed to cause no reactions, they are the closest you will come with an off-the-shelf product toward preventing allergies.

Stay fresh, cool and dry thanks to Adaptive technology

No need to turn over - single-sided for easy care and convenience

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.

Turning handles help make light work of moving your mattress when you need to

This mattress comes with turning handles that will assist in the rotation and flipping of the product. May seem like no big deal selecting a mattress without handles, however, their use is critical in the movement of larger mattresses and can be the difference between pains and inconvenience and not,

Depth: 32cm

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 12.5 inch mattress gives the impression of luxury, whilst providing all the benefits of a regular mattress. With the development of the popular pillow top, depths can go up to 24 inches.

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.

Pillow Top

Many mattresses that you see that look really plush, do so because they feature a pillow top. Benefits of a pillow top mattress are increased comfort and luxury styling. Downsides are they can be a bit of a pain to get sheets over properly

Gel foam

Gel foam is used as a top layer and offers much of the same sort of comfort as memory foam but without the heat build up normally associated with it. All the pros and non of the cons. It's a great choice for those looking for something a bit better than traditional 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

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.

32cm deep

32cm is a very chunky mattress. Note that this product is likely to include a thick comfort later as well as a decent sizes support layer. You will need deeper fitting sheets as this is an absolute beast.

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 Pillow Top 2200 Mattress

Based on 47 reviews
5

Wish I had purchased my new mattress sooner, something I kept putting off but after gradually noticing more and more niggles with my back and shoulders I realised it's time for a change. Didn't want memory foam but wanted the same pressure relief. Pleased to say that the mattress is doing it's job very well, sleeping better, feel more refreshed and more importantly it's definitely vastly improved my back ache.I should add my husband is happy too, not that he complained about the old one.

5

Really soft on the top layer and the mattress itself provides real support. If your looking for a "snug" mattress that feels as though it's wrapping itself around you....then it's just the choice.I tried similar mattresses in the retail outlets so I had an idea what was suitable for me hence I wasn't going in blind. For me it was a good choice and I should have bought 2, just in case I couldn't buy another just like it in 8yrs time!

5

Very comfortable bed that doesn't bounce your partner out of bed on your turnover.The Gel means the bed warms up and stays warm throughout the night. This may not be to everyone's liking and worth noting a pure pocket sprung mattress or similar would be cooler.However the combination of the Gel and pocket springs means I can now sleep on both sides and my back without waking up with massive aches and pains

5

Deep mattress that's very comfortable and supportive, not overly firm and is perfect my 14st weight, my wife is 10st and she finds it comfortable and supportive too.It has useful handles, it's a heavy mattress.

Very comfortable and supportive. I have the medium firmness and it gives excellent support. Despite what other reviewers said I dont find it difficult to rotate and the handles on the side are great for this.
