Natural Mattress Vs Spring Mattress

Wednesday, 14 March 2012 11:00 Published in Beyond Team Blog

Inner-spring mattresses may be the most common type of mattress used, but that doesn't mean that they are the best for you. We have put together 5 simple reasons why you should choose a Natural Mattress over an Inner-spring:


Inner-spring mattresses need to be flipped or rotated approximately once every three months in order for the mattress to wear out evenly. They can start to show signs of sagging within 1 to 2 years after your purchase which minimises the support you need and means that your bodyweight is not spread uniformly across the springs. This stops the spine from becoming properly aligned. Grand Soleil natural mattresses have undergone an independent test by CATAS to test sagging. The mattresses were subject to a 60,000 rolls from a roller that placed 100kg pressure on the mattress (simulating 10 years of use), the total displacement at the end of the test was less than 2mm.


Most spring mattresses have closed structure with the outside padding; it doesn't promote good air circulation. Combining a traditional spring mattress with a pillow-top can make you feel hotter. The more padding you have beneath your body, the less able your skin is to breathe. This may lead to an uncomfortable, sweating, disrupted sleep. Natural mattresses have an open cell structure which is created in the manufacturing process; the production through the foaming machines is slow enough to enable the cells to be forced open. The foam is then crushed and stabilised to further open the cells in order to promote the breathability of the material to provide a cool, fresh sleeping environment.


Innerspring mattresses can create pressure points because the uniform springs can not give way to your body curve with different support. Particular parts like shoulder, hip will sink into a mattress more than other parts. Rather than responding to your body, an innerspring mattress pushes back against your body at those points. A pressure point can hinder blood flow to that area, resulting in a night of tossing and turning. The Grand Soleil sleep system (mattress plus slats) provide anatomic support. They are designed to hold your body in the same posture as when you stand to allow your cervical column to fully relax, for a deeper, more beneficial sleep.


The structure of inner-spring mattresses make for the perfect living and breeding environment for dust mites which are recognized to be the main cause for Asthma, Hay Fever and other allergies. Over the course of a few years, inner springs mattresses can harbour mould and mildew that are hard and expensive to remove. The Dorsal sleep system is designed to encourage air to flow through it, ensuring the mattress remains dry and moisture free and an inhospitable environment for dust mites and allergens. The cover is also removable and washable; it is a more hygienic system than traditional spring mattresses.


As the springs age, innerspring mattresses can begin to make noise when in use as the springs can not move uniformly. Grand Soleil natural mattresses are metal-free and their structure means minimal partner disturbance and no squeaking! Spring structure with electrical wires in your home can also create magnetic field, these chaotic magnetic field is not a healthy environment for sleeping, natural mattress doesn't have this kind effect, and because the mattress foam is made from natural oils, it is very healthy for our body.
