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.
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.
Allergy sufferers often experience the problem of waking up in the middle of the night or having to get up in the morning with a stuffy nose and eyes. The reason why you wake up with a stuffy nose is because your mattress has accumulated dust mites, mould and mildew, all of which are allergens. The solution is a hypoallergenic mattress is made from materials that do not support mould or dust mites. They also have anti-microbial properties that effectively kill any bacteria that may come into contact with it.
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.
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.
Traditional memory foam has one critical pitfall around heat retention and buildup. See, the foam absorbs heat and is not particularly breathable meaning that it can cause many people to get too warm as they sleep. Cooling geltex foam is different however featuring all the positives of traditional memory foam but without the pitfalls of heat build up. It's a great option for those who find comfort in the foam.
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.
A medium firm tension mattress is slightly firmer than your average medium mattress. This is ideal for those who either prefer a little bit more support, or, those that have a slightly higher BMI than average. You may also benefit from a medium firmness mattress where you are suffering from neck/back pain as the additional support can help prevent and alleviate these symptoms.
Hand Tufting is a labor intensive process that involves securing the fittings to a mattress rather than having them operate independently and loose within. This small act not only secures, but also leads to the mattress lasting longer and feeling firmer. A hand-tufted mattress is great for anyone looking for additional stability while they sleep.
Firmer than the average mattress, a medium to firm mattress is ideally suited to those that are looking for extra back support but still require and amount of comfort from their mattress. Ideally suited for a large range of the populus and becoming much more common, deviating away from the previous medium-for-everyone model.

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
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.
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,

This mattress has a depth of 37cm which is on the deep end and will likely require deeper than standard sheets to be able to overcome it's larger size. The benefit to a 37cm mattress is that they are typically of higher quality and with more generous amounts of fillings than thinner products.
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.

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.
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
The fabrics, materials and fillings of this mattress are the result of what has been deemed vegan-friendly materials. Ideal for those expressing their beliefs while still requiring good levels of comfort and support from a product
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.
37cm is a fairly substantial depth for a mattress. While a thick mattress is not indicative of greater quality, it's easy to see that a bigger depth gives more room for fillings and good quality spring systems.
Mirapocket is Silentnights own take on pocket springs, in this instance, mirapocket is better than miracoil in terms of the support structure offered and is the one to consider should your budget allow it.
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.
