What are pocket springs?

Pocket sprung mattresses features individual springs or coils, each encased in its own fabric pocket or sleeve. These pockets are then stitched together to form the mattress structure. The key characteristic of a pocket sprung mattress is that each spring operates independently. They respond to the weight and movement placed on it rather than being interconnected like traditional coil mattresses.

How does it work?

Here’s how a pocket sprung mattress typically works:

  1. Individual Springs: Each spring is housed within its own fabric pocket. This construction allows the springs to move independently of each other.
  2. Responsive Support: Each spring operates independently. So when pressure is applied to one area of the mattress, only the springs in that specific region compress. The rest of the springs remain unaffected. This provides targeted support to different parts of the body, conforming to its shape and weight distribution.
  3. Reduced Motion Transfer: The individual pocketed springs help to isolate movement. When one person moves on the mattress, the springs in their immediate vicinity absorb the motion without transferring it to other parts of the mattress. This can be particularly beneficial for couples, as it reduces disturbances from a partner’s movements during the night.
  4. Contours to Body Shape: The pocket sprung design allows the mattress to contour to the body’s natural curves, providing customized support and pressure relief. This can promote better spinal alignment and alleviate pressure points, resulting in a more comfortable sleep experience.
  5. Breathability and Airflow: The gaps between the individual pocketed springs allow for increased airflow within the mattress. This can help regulate temperature and prevent the build-up of heat and moisture, promoting a cooler and more comfortable sleep environment.

Overall pocket spring mattresses are favored for their tailored support because they offer reduced motion transfer, and breathability. They are available in various firmness levels and configurations to suit different preferences and sleeping styles.
