Q: My question is concerning tufted mattresses. I am thinking of buying one of your beds and it has a tufted mattress. Can you tell me any more about this system? Can you also tell me what sort of spring system it uses. Question from Mrs Evans

A:

A tufted mattress has a more undulating appearance.  This effect is created by threading tapes, at regular intervals, through the mattress to prevent the movement of the fillings inside. Better quality tufts are secured and well protected with a material washer or pompom, often made of felt. However, some more sensitive people may be more aware of them than others, in which case a good mattress protector can help.  Otherwise choose a quilted style instead.

Our mattresses have pocket springs.  Pocket springs are smaller than open coil springs and are fitted within fabric pockets, hence the name. These pockets allow the springs to work independently of each other, providing individual support and preventing pressure points from building as you sleep. Pocket sprung mattresses are generally constructed using higher quality materials and will fit into a higher price range than the open coil ranges.

Our springs are so responsive, it’s almost as if we tailor your mattress to your own personal specification.  Placed closely together under layers of sumptuous fillings, the hundreds of springs in a Rest Assured mattress adjust to your unique shape, giving you exactly the right amount of support exactly where you need it.

Each precision engineered coil is wrapped in its own individual soft cloth sleeve, which holds it at the optimum tension and allows it to move independently.  This means that each spring is poised, ready to respond to your every movement, so that every sleeping position becomes your most favourite.  Being supported in this much comfort promises a deep and restorative sleep, all night long.
