Pocket sprung mattresses differ from traditional mattresses as each coil is encapsulated in a fabric sheath. This has the effect of absorbing almost all bounce. A big disappointment for children wanting an indoor trampoline, but a great advantage to those with restless partners as little or no movement is transferred across the mattress.
The number of pockets or 'count' is normally compared against double mattresses. With no firm industry standard between pocket counts, the number of pockets is poor reflection on the comfort of the bed or mattress. Linx Beds have settled for a 1000 count as we believe 800 to be too soft and 1200 to be a little firm. We also believe 1500, 2000 and 3000 counts to be a bit gimmicky having little or no perceivable difference in comfort.
