Open spring mattresses are also known as continuous coil or standard coil and have been a conventional type of mattress commonly used in the UK for decades. They use an inter-connected spring design. Open spring mattresses are mass-produced with a low manufacturing cost, making them one of the most economical types of bed.

Manufacturers and retailers often point out the ‘gauge’ of a spring mattress. The gauge refers to the thickness of the wire used to make the springs. The lower the gauge number, the thicker the coil wire, which produces a firmer mattress. For example, a 12-gauge mattress is very firm and suitable for those who like a less pliable sleeping surface, but if you like something a little softer, choose a 13.5-gauge which is more flexible but still offers support.

Is an Open Coil Spring Mattress The Right Choice For You?

There are several pros and cons with open spring beds, which may or may not be important to you, depending on your situation.

Pros: Open coil spring divan beds offer outstanding support and are used to make many orthopaedic mattress brands due to their stability. They are lighter than pocket sprung mattresses and easy to turn. An open coil mattress with a memory foam mattress topper will give you an outstanding level of comfort.

An open spring divan bed is a perfect choice for children, as they last an average of 5 years before needing to be replaced, which is a time frame that a growing child may require a larger mattress anyway.

Open coil spring mattresses tend to be cheaper than other types, so they are perfect if you are on a budget.

Cons: Open spring beds are not as enduring as other mattress types and may sag in the middle after extended use. An open spring bed can also cause couples to roll together, and they are not an optimal mattress type to stop motion transfer.
