What Makes The Silentnight Healthy Growth Shorty Mattress Great?

Open coil spring system

Open coil mattresses feature a traditional spring design that dates back centuries. They are a low cost solution for bed retailers that provides a good quality sleeping solution that is capable of providing adequate body contouring and reasonable support.

Deep layers of upholstery

This mattress is upholstered in a lightweight breathable fabric that will help keep you cool while also ensuring adequate temperature regulation, the result will have you or your child sleeping deeper and for longer.

Soft knitted panels with tailored borders

This mattress is made from a luxurious knit top fabric that is perfect for any bed. It is soft and has a gentle stretch for comfort. 

Hand-tufted for superior support

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.

Orthopaedic medium to firm support

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.

Mattress depth: 26cm

The industry standard for mattress depth is 7 inches. With most offering a comfortable 10 to 14 inches, so this one at just under 10 inches is one of the most popular sizes. The higher the load, the deeper it needs to be but a quality mattress in this size can be equally as comfortable and supportive as a deeper budget mattress. 

Double-sided for lasting performance

The benefits of a double sided mattress are that you get twice the surface area of comfort layers. The real-world practicality of this means that you flip the mattress as well as rotate allowing for better settlement of fillings which increases longevity, while reducing the chance of dipping or spring problems that may otherwise occur. Ultimately the mattress will likely last longer and remain comfortable for a greater duration.

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.

1 year guarantee

1 year guarantee is typical for the industry. This means you are guaranteed to have a trouble free experience for the first year or have your product replaced

Traditional open coil springs

Open Springs offer fairly decent support that is evenly spread across the mattres. However, where budget allows, we would tend to steer people toward a pocket spring mattress, these might be a little bit more money, but the support is superior and consistant across the product

Soft white fibres

White fibres tend to be a mixture of polester and other non-descript synthetic fibres

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.

Orthopaedic Support

Do you suffer from back pain? If so you will likely find that an orthopaedic mattress will be massively beneficial to you. Slightly firmer in the comfort side of things but ultimately with a better support layer means that your back and neck will thank you for years to come.

Medium to Firm

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.

26cm deep

26CM is a deep mattress. This sort of mattress may require a slightly deeper fitted sheet to avoid it constantly popping off. That aside, 26CM is above the industry average in terms of depth and while not necesserily a guarantee of quality, you cannot get comfort and quality from a thin mattress

Double-sided

Double sided just means that the product can be flipped and still retain the same level of comfort. The fillings and dibres inside the product are capable of operating in any direction. Handy for settlement and to prevent dipping.

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.

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

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

Hypoallergenic - no more sneezing!

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.

Shorter length of 175cm to fit many children's beds

Soft-touch knitted cover

Soft touch covers are commonplace in the mattress industry. These covers are still hard wearing enough to last the lifetime of the product but soft enough to the touch to still be comfortable even with the thinnest of sheets on top

Cover can be removed and machine washed up to 40°C for your convenience

Isn't it great when you have a product that you can just wash in the washing machine? It's so much easier than handwashing, and of course, it saves you time. You don't have to be lazy--just put it in the washer and dryer!

Single-sided - no need to flip

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.

Foam-free with no unnecessary chemical treatments

This mattress holds no foam which means there is no unnecessary chemicals. That means that while this mattress is suitable for you, it is also suitable for the environment. A win for you and a win for nature.

Mattress depth: 10cm

10cm depth is a depth that makes this mattress compatible with bunk beds. When it comes to bunk mattresses, you cannot have more than a certain depth due to the additional risks related to falling out of the bed from a considerable height. Fortunately, this mattress and the related depth, make it an ideal candidate.

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.

Eco Comfort Fibre™

Silentnight, in an effort to be more environmentally conscious have created the Eco Comfort Fibres. These fibres are super breathable and are made entirely from plastic bottles ensuring that both the planet and your pocket are both left in a good state.

Removable cover

Removable covers are great. We don't typically replace mattresses for 7-8 years. That's a lot of body fluids and protectors and sheets can only do so much. To that end getting that extra layer of cleanliness goes a huge way toward ensuring you get longevity out of your product.

Washable cover

Keep your mattress fresh and hygienic with a removable washable cover. Prevent moisture from building up over time. Wash your mattress cover at least once a year to remove all bacteria, dust-mites and odours and alleviate allergies by discouraging future dust mites and bed bugs from nesting.

Hypoallergenic

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

Firm

Firm mattresses are great for those looking for an extra bit of support, either because they have a higher BMI and leanm toward the heavier side, or because they have joint and muscle pain and appreciate a decent amount of support while they sleep. If you are not actively looking for a firm mattress it may be wise to consider something else from the range that is perhaps closer to the medium firmness rating

10cm deep

10cm depth is a depth that makes this mattress compatible with bunk beds. When it comes to bunk mattresses, you cannot have more than a certain depth due to the additional risks related to falling out of the bed from a considerable height. Fortunately, this mattress and the related depth, make it an ideal candidate.

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.

Vegan-friendly

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
