Pocket sprung mattresses offer more support than open coiled. The individual springs that make up the mattress are housed in their own little pockets and work independently of each other. Spring counts can vary dramatically from 600 to 5,000. Typically, the higher the spring count, the better the support. However spring gauge is a factor, lots of cheap springs would be inferior to 1400 high quality springs. It’s also important to bear in mind that pocket springs can be layered with smaller coils sitting on top of the larger base springs. This offers a different feel and is often in higher end mattresses.
Pros: Because the springs move independently they offer more support for your body, and are ideal for people of two different weights as pocket-sprung mattresses reduce that ‘roll-together’ feeling. There is also less disturbance when you move.
Cons: Can be heavy to turn, due to the density of their fillings. They are more expensive but last longer than open coil mattresses.
Pocket spring mattresses can last between 7-12 years on average but factors such as weight, regular turning and the quality of the mattress affect the longevity.
