Open coil has been around the longest, and both consist of a series of metal coils. Although these are the cheapest type of spring it does not mean it is inadequate for the job, there are several things that manufacturers do that change an open coil spring from been a cheap budget mattress to a mattress that is going to offer you quality and affordability and a long life span. Firstly manufacturers add a rod wire edge to give the mattress edge support and durability. Rod wire edges come in different thicknesses (gauges) 4g, 5g, 6g, 7g, 8g, the higher the gauge the more side support is offered. Secondly is to tie the springs together using (butterfly clips). This creates a cheaper option than pocket sprung, with the same desired effect where the springs move up and down together within the sleeping area so when you move your partner does not. A typical double open coil mattress will have between 80 and 100 coils.
Pocket sprung is a more recently developed spring unit. It adapts the open coil concept but made with smaller spring coils that are inserted in to separate individual pockets which are all glued together to make one bonded unit. There are many types and this is all based on the spring count within the units, spring counts can start from as little as 400 and rise to 50.000 in a high end mattress. What a lot of retailers are not willing to disclose is that a double 3000 pocket sprung mattress will not have the same count as a kingsize 3000 pocket sprung mattress as the count is worked out from the largest unit supplied in that range, so a 3ft 3000 pocket mattress may only have 400 individual springs, where as the 6ft round mattress is the true 3000 count of pockets, even though this is practice and is very misleading it is adopted by 99.9% of retailers and manufacturers. When choosing a pocket mattress the more springs the smaller they become and layered, you will benefit from a higher count which will offer a anti roll system when you move around in bed and a finer adjustment to your body's shape. We sell several different pocket sprung mattresses and divan beds from various manufacturers around the UK if you would like to know more about the exact count on a particular mattress please feel to contact us.
When looking for a mattress you will come across the following.

Bonded mattresses = Bonded is a recent alternative to Coir features of a Pure Foam Mattress.
Tufted mattresses = This is achieved by squashing the mattress using a tufting machine, then string is pushed threw the mattress with a tufting needle and either a soft tuft, woolen tuft or button attached to either side of the mattress knitting the spring, fillings and cover together, once tufted the tufting machine slowly releases the pressure allowing the mattress to expand. This will be done Several times depending on the size of mattress.
Encapsulated mattresses = A pocket sprung unit wrapped in foam.
Butterfly spring mattresses = Clips that bond a open coil spring together.
Hand Stitched mattresses = Borders sewn to the spring unit.
Simulated Stitch mattresses = Imitation hand stitched done by machine (Don't be fooled).
Hard Pad mattresses = Padding clipped to the top and bottom of a open coil spring to stop the fillings collapsing into spring unit.
