Q: I have just bought a Rest Assured Northwood bed and would like to know what 14 gauge means and does it have aloe vera on the mattress. Question from Maree


Spring wire is measured using the term "gauge".  The higher the wire gauge the firmer the mattress.

If you have purchased a Northwood Memory or Northwood Latex this will contain Aloe Vera.
