Today we're looking at the new Silentnight Geltex Ultra 4000 Boxtop Mattress which looks to be a unique offering from Bensons for Beds. For those that don't know, Silentnight is one of the largest mattress manufacturers who prove particularly strong in the online segment and looks to be continuing that trend with the new Feltex Ultra range.
Let's break down the layers and see what we're working with.
To start, the support layer. With a combination of 3000 zoned mirapocket springs combined with an additional layer of 1000 mini springs you end up with a combined 4000 springs to help ensure that your body contours sufficiently as you sleep. The medium tension means that these springs will allow a decent amount of "give" to them that will suit both back and side sleepers.
The pocket springs are my favourite mattress support and with good reason, the contouring around your body is better and the longevity too, making pocket springs the ideal premium-buy when it comes to support layers
Onto the comfort layer and we've got another favourite in Geltex. Geltex is Silentnights version of Gel layers for mattresses and it does a great job of proving a breathable, soft and squishy top layer. What makes Gel a better option than other comfort layers is that it can keep you the right temperature as you sleep proving to be not too hot, nor too cold. In this instance the Geltex Ultra 4000 Boxtop Mattress comes with a generous helping of the material to ensure adequate body-hugging comfort that pairs wonderfully with the springs below.
How does it feel?
Firmness of The Silentnight Geltex Ultra 4000 Boxtop Mattress depends on bodyweight. Adjust your weight below to get an indication of how it may feel. Remember though that firmness is entirely subjective.
Reasons to Buy
The Silentnight Geltex Ultra 4000 is a luxury mattress with all the bells and whistles. Combining a layer of Silentnight Geltex™ to keep you cool with a triple layer of 3000 Zoned Mirapocket springs, this mattress is perfect for those who need a little more support in their sleep while still being a medium tension. Whether you sleep on your back, side or stomach, this mattress should largely be suitable. It's even hand tufted for that traditional sleep surface. Need to rotate it? Not to worry! This mattress is an easy-to-care-for non-turn mattress with five years warranty.
Reasons to Avoid
Not so much a con, rather an observation. I've laid on mattresses with similar dual-support setups in the past and always found the 1000 mini/hybrid springs fairly pointless. The 3000 zoned mirapocket springs do more than enough to offer encouraging and pinpoint bounce back support that I'd argue you could get away without and just call it a Ultra 3000 Boxtop. Alas, the mattress is well reviewed and looks to be a future favourite.
