Open Coil Mattresses are one of the most long-standing methods of construction and contain springs which are arranged in sideways rows and then joined together by a thinner wire on the top and base of each spring to make it a whole unit. The coiled metal is tempered which helps to hold the coil’s firmness. As a standard rule, the thickness of the wire can help to determine the overall quality of the mattress – the thinner the wire, the more tightly curled the springs are within the mattress and therefore providing better quality.
A continuous coil is a subcategory type of open coiled mattress and is made from a single wire arrange in head to toe rows of continual wire and joined together in the same way as a standard open coil, with tempered wire on the top and base of each spring. The head to toe formation can be beneficial for reducing the ‘roll together’ effect on the mattress. Rod edging is an important feature of open coiled mattresses as it helps to extend the sleeping surface of the mattress and can also help to reduce side sag, ensuring your body remains supported and comfortable to the edge of the mattress.
