Contract mattresses do not need to be as ’pretty’ as domestic beds, they need to be robust and durable, and this is why we use hard wearing cottons and damasks in our collection.
The heart of a mattress is the spring. Individual springs are cased in a fabric pocket and nestled together to form a unit allowing them to work independently of one another, profiling to the body shape to prevent pressure points. With smaller diameter springs than an open coil, a pocket sprung mattress generally contains a higher spring count, in some cases as high as 2000 springs, resulting in a more luxurious sleep experience providing the user with increased levels of spinal support. Pocket sprung models are generally expected in hotels with 4 star ratings and above.
Open coil springs
The most commonly used spring option in mattresses. Springs are arranged in rows and connected to each other by a spiral helical wire with a rod edge frame to strengthen the edge of the mattress. Orthopaedic as well as Medium gauge is available, but the finished mattresses all feel quite differently dependant on the types and qualities of fillings used.
Memory and Reflex Foam
Memory foam mattresses have become very popular in the contract market. Memory foam was originally developed by NASA scientists and has since been recognised as an effective support medium with valuable pressure relieving properties. Reacting to natural body warmth, it gently responds to your weight and shape, moulding to every contour providing a unique combination of support and comfort. As an added benefit the structure of the foam does not allow dustmites to penetrate the mattress resulting in a clean environment for a healthy rejuvenating sleep. We offer an exceptionally comfortable memory and pocket combination as well as a similar mattress with a waterproof upholstery Foam density is very important, basically – the lower the density, the shorter the durability, therefore we only use higher density foams in our contract mattresses. It must be noted that foam too, is subject to settlement and user weight ratio is an important factor to consider when installing into a contract environment.

Upholstered timber platform top base made up of a rigid, non-sprung top panel, often made from hardboard with extra reinforced slats, which serves to improve the responsiveness of the spring by providing an overall firmer feel to the divan set while offering a rigid support to give maximum hold to the mattress.

Firm Edge Sprung
Constructed as above, except the base springs are nestled inside of the frame, protecting the corners. Considered the most luxurious and robust of sprung base options, as the springs provide even support across the whole mattress and act like a giant shock absorber, increasing the mattress’s durability.
