Dual Comfort Spring System Upgrade

The Connection Between Weight and Spring Preference

Every person has unique needs when it comes to mattress comfort. Our extensive experience has led us to some insightful observations:

Our decade-long experience fitting people to mattresses has revealed a clear pattern: specific springs are consistently preferred by certain weight groups.

For our sleepers that way less (Under 70kg):

Many in your weight group tell us that it’s hard to find a mattress that is comfortable enough. This is due to most mattress being made for heavier people. Our spring, found in our Aurora Cloud 2, 3, or 4 mattresses, Is built specifically for your weight group.

For Those in the Middle (70kg to 90kg):

Lot’s of our sleepers choose the spring. Becuase lot’s of our sleeprs are 70-90kgs.It’s available in all of our medium-range mattresses e.g. Aurora 5, 6, or 7.

For Individuals Over 90kg:

Your body needs the right support, but it also needs cushioning above that firm support. With the spring, featured in any of our firmer range mattresses (e.g. Aurora 8, 9, or 10), you’ll find the the right balance for comfort and alignment.

For Individuals above 110kg):

Your requirements are our priority. The spring, available upon special request. Please call and ask and we can figure out the right combination of components for you 🙂

What if I’m close to the border of the weight groups?

If you’re near the border of these weight groups, your personal comfort preferences might lead you to choose a firmness level slightly outside your category. It’s worth considering how you like your mattress to feel and discussing it with our team.

Can you give an example of how personal preferences might affect the spring choice?
Certainly! For example, Tom, who weighs 95kg and sleeps on his side, prefers a softer mattress. While the chart recommends a Blue spring for him, after discussing his preferences, we might suggest White springs instead.
Why are they called black springs, blue springs etc’?

Why Are the Springs Called by Colors?

Q: I noticed that the springs are referred to by colors like Yellow, White, Blue, and Black. What does this mean?

A: In the factory, we use technical specifications like 1.8mm and 1.7mm to describe the thickness of the springs. However, we have assigned them colors to make it less technical and easier for our customers to remember. Here’s how the colors correspond to the spring thickness:

  • Yellow: 1.5mm thick wire in the pocketspring
  • White: 1.6mm thick wire in the pocketspring
  • Blue: 1.7mm thick wire in the pocketspring
  • Black: 1.8mm thick wire in the pocketspring

This approach helps our customers easily understand and choose the right spring for their weight range without getting into the technical details.

It’s telling me to get a “firmer mattress, but I want a soft feeling mattress, what do I do?

Mattress Firmness and Bodyweight

Mattress firmness is relative to bodyweight. So, a “firmer range” mattress does not mean it will feel firm to you. For example, if you are 105kgs, we would recommend you to get a “firmer range” mattress. Within that “firmer range”, there are “8”, “9”, and “10” firmness levels all built into the mattress.

All you would need to do is set your mattress to the “8” setting. The mattress would now be soft relative to your bodyweight. You may even find that the “9” or the “10” are plenty soft for you.

Questions & Answers

Q: What if I want it softer than that?
A: We have found that the only way to make a mattress softer for a higher bodyweight person is to make the mattress thicker. This allows the mattress to distribute your bodyweight more, taking pressure off the hips and shoulders.

Our New “Cloud” Range

Our new “Cloud” range does this. It is the Aurora, with an extra 2000 microsprings. This extra padding cushions you more from the below firmer spring support required for your bodyweight.

Do you want to ignore our recomendation, and buy a softer range than we recommend?

What if it tells me to get a “firmer” and I get a medium? You might like it at first, however, we have seen over time that getting a softer range for your bodyweight will result in you ending up in a hammock position. This is due to the springs not adequately supporting the middle of your body. Laying in a hammock is fine for an afternoon in the sun, but over time you’ll likely experience a sore back.
