Innerspring, Coil, Pillowtops

By far, the most common type of consumer mattresses are Innerspring and Coil constructions. You’ve probably been sleeping on these for years and not been aware, and can still provide the rest you need as a mainstream and common alternative. A complete spring mattress consists of the boxspring base, the mattress springs, and padding layers. In each type, metal coils comprise the support system. There are several different types of spring systems in use and have evolved in recent years, from connected Bonnell coils to independent pocketed springs.  With mattresses, the construction’s quality is often judged by the number of coils. The lower the gauge or a mattress, the less give the coils have. Commonly, the greater the number of coils, the better the bed can contour and support the sleeper – however, this also varies when you look at modern hybrids and the mattress’ top layers. On top of the coils, manufacturers use foams, padding, and stuffing to provide a comfortable sleeping surface. They can range from basic quilting to memory foam or latex, and may be several inches thick.

Memory Foam

In recent years, memory foam mattresses have become incredibly popular – especially among seniors and those of us who suffer from chronic muscle aches and pains. For that, memory foam’s unique construction can help to alleviate your pain and discomfort almost immediately. Mattresses made of memory foam are built of several layers, starting with a firm, high-density foam at its core — ideal for the solid foundation that your body needs for proper support. The mattress’ outer layer is made of a specific foam design that varies in thickness and density to contour perfectly to your own body while you recline. The unique material blend has been pour and heated with polymers to create a “melting” feeling that adheres to your body’s own size and shape, making for an unmatched fit. Most people are unaware that the unique materials within the memory foam actually detect parts of your body that require additional support. When you’re suffering from pain, the affected area radiates a larger amount of heat. Your memory foam detects that increase in temperature and naturally molds to the needed areas. Additionally, memory foam mattresses’ material composition prevents allergens from collecting throughout your bed, making them ideal for people suffering from allergies or asthma.

Adjustable Foundation

Just as described, adjustable foundation mattresses allow you to adjust the head or foot of the mattress, primarily with the help of a switch or remote control. The mattresses themselves come in a wide spectrum of constructions, each one allowing for the mid-section to fold as the mattress itself is slowly adjected to the sleeper’s needs.
