What is one bag spring mattress?

As a great evolution for the traditional spring mattresses, the bag spring mattresses appeared. These guarantee a good firmness, provide greater comfort for your rest and stand out for their great resistance to the passage of time. In these mattresses, movement does not propagate.

Inside the bagged spring mattresses there are Visco SSI mattresses. The self-forming viscoelastic layer adapts perfectly to the body, leveling the weight and distributing it over the surface, particularly in the lower back and shoulders. Thus, they offer extra comfort, independent and adaptable.


How does the bag spring mechanism work?

One bag spring mattress it is, as the name implies, made of individually bagged springs, meaning each spring is contained in its own fabric pocket. Since they are in individual bags, each spring works independently of the other, reacting only to the pressure applied to that area.

Unlike traditional spring mattresses, bag springs do not move as a whole unit. Thus, each spring works individually to correctly support your body and reduces the transfer of movement to other areas of the mattress. This results in a higher level of personalized support and response for each person who sleeps on the mattress. The firmness and homogeneity of this system maintains excellent bed independence.


Is the pocket spring mattress suitable for everyone?

Each person has a better mattress. It all depends on your rest needs and your profile. Due to their mechanics already explained, bag spring mattresses are particularly suitable for those who tend to move a lot at night and/or for those who sleep with a person with a different weight at their side. Thus, a couple who sleep together do not feel each other's movements.


Difference between bagged spring mattresses and traditional springs

One is an evolution of the other. At traditional springs they are all directly connected to each other and move together. As the bag springs move independently, they offer more support for your body and are ideal for those who sleep with someone whose weight is different, so they don't feel each other's movements during the night. In conclusion, you'll get more comfort and support with a pocket spring mattress.


Which is better: the pocket spring mattress or the foam mattress?

There is no mattress that is better than another, but there are mattresses that are better suited to each person's case. Per design, spring mattresses facilitate the flow of air inside and are generally cooler at night compared to mattresses. foam. That said, in recent years, many foams now include cooling gels and an open structure to help regulate body temperature. Both types offer independence of movement and good support.


6 advantages of pocket spring mattresses:

1. No motion transfer

Unlike other types of mattresses where the body's weight is distributed over the surface, each spring in the bag reacts independently, which promotes a good night's sleep.

2. Pressure and pain relief

Neither too hard nor too soft: each spring in these mattresses works individually to support your entire body, providing the right pressure on individual areas such as hips and shoulders. Thus, mattresses are often recommended for orthopedic patients with hip and shoulder problems.

3. Very comfortable – luxurious feeling

They are of high quality and equipped with a luxurious foam top layer, which makes the pocket-spring mattress soft to the touch and even more comfortable to sleep on.

4. Support for everyone

Due to the individual casings of each spring, the pocket spring mattresses adjust and offer comfort for a good night's sleep, even if two people of very different sizes and weights sleep on the same mattress.

5. Durable

With proper care and maintenance, it won't be a surprise if your pocket spring mattress lasts at least a decade, if not longer!

6. Don't heat up

Per design, the springs inside the mattress are more efficient in letting air circulate inside, creating a cooler mattress.
