We often have customers asking about our collection of firm mattresses, they may have back problems, be of a heavier weight or simply prefer a firmer feel mattress. We have a wide range of firm mattresses – foam or sprung – so we thought we’d take a look at the qualities of each in the range, to help you find the perfect firm mattress for you.
Firstly here are some tips to help you to select the right firmness of mattress to support your back:
The Relaxsan is a firm, foam mattress that we recommend for body weights over 15 stone (95kg) and for people who like a very firm mattress. Made with a filling of expanded polymer foam – a high density filling with excellent elasticity.
The name is misleading – the Orthosoft is not a soft mattress! The Orthosoft is a firmer foam mattress than the Moon Firm or the Waterlattex, but not quite as firm as the Relaxsan. This mattress is an excellent choice, and especially popular for, people in the 80Kg (12-13 stone+) weight range. 18cm deep.
This Weldbank is the Ortho 1400 mattress – designed to have a firm feel for good back support, offering superior support to the whole body and spine. This pocket sprung mattresses incorporates 1400 (based on a king-size) individually nested pocket springs, and features a unique zonal edge spring system for support across the full span of the mattress. The Weldback Ortho 1400 has more ‘bounce’ than the Orthosoft, but is still a firm mattress. 23-25cm deep.This mattress does not contain traditional chemical FR treatments – instead the ticking is treated with M-PURE – an ecofriendly, non-toxic, biological treatment from Maes.
The Moon Firm is an excellent firm-medium, value foam mattress with a 14cm ‘Orthofirm’ core covered in hypoallergenic and breathable outer padding. A slim mattress it is 16cm in depth.
The Westgate is a luxurious sprung mattresses with a chemical free fire retardancy treatment like the Weldbank – biodegradable and eco-friendly. These comfortable and supportive pocket sprung mattresses are available in three firmness options: soft, medium and firm. The firm Westgate has the bounce you would expect from a sprung mattress and the initial give of the layers of cotton and wool however the 2000 springs (king-size) in the firm model have greater tension for less give. Depth 26-28cm approximately.
The Waterlattex Vision mattress is filled with a mixture of polymer foam and natural latex, expanded under water to produce a firm sponge-like structure. It also features a Coolmax cover to keep you cool and fresh with a breathable band round the edges to enhance good airflow and ventilation. 20cm deep.The Waterlattex is one of our most popular foam mattresses, it suits most body weights and the high desity filling gives years of comfortable support.
The Optimal Support Back Care mattress is the ideal mattress for those of average size/weight but looking for extra back support. This mattress is designed to provide optimal support to 7 areas of the body. Constructed using 5 layers of specialist materials: 2cm of memorex padding, a hypoallergenic and breathable fibre layer, a layer of insulated material, 6cm Orthosoft material with a ‘chess shaped’ structure offering differentiated support and better breathability over a 12cm Orthofirm layer.
