Why an intelligent pocket spring system is the smart choice for your mattress

How much is a good night’s sleep worth to you? It’s thought that one in three people in the UK suffer from insomnia, with consequences ranging from feeling tired at work to major health issues.

Sinking into a luxuriously supportive mattress at the end of a long day can dramatically improve your quality of sleep – and ensure you feel refreshed during your waking hours.

One of the most important features to look for when choosing a mattress is the spring count. A high spring count means better support, but spring technology is also a factor. The Sensa Intelligent pocket springs system found inside every Somnus bed comprises a series of core springs combined with layers of smaller springs that provide targeted support closer to the surface of the mattress.

Spring Forward Lab
Our state-of-the-art testing laboratory

The Sensa Intelligent pocket spring system is the result of years of research, testing and innovation by some of the world’s top bed technicians in our state-of-the-art laboratory. From the day the company was established in 1840, the focus has been on providing its customers with a better night’s sleep.

The led to the invention of the double-tiered spring system back in 1924 and, more recently, to Somnus investing in a wire-drawing facility as its factory in Leeds. Here, steel rods are drawn into a range of finer wires in order to create springs that are lighter but more durable. The result? We can create layers of small, light, responsive springs, with up to 4,000 springs each.

Spring Technology

But it doesn’t stop there. We have developed a weldable, 100% plant based pocket for our springs, designed to work in tandem with our 100% natural fillings, such as moisture absorbing Yorkshire wool, soft strong Egyptian cotton and the finest silk.

As we all spend around a third of our lives in bed, it makes sense to invest in a sumptuous mattress offering exceptional support. Carefully crafted by sleep specialists, a Somnus mattress with Sensa Intelligent pocket springs is the best way to put luxury and comfort first.
