Innerspring mattress systems are the oldest type of mattresses. They are mainly made up of interconnected coils and a layer of cushioning. This layer can be made of fabric, foam or latex.
The Bonnell spring mattress is a type of innerspring mattress. Its differentiating factor is the shape of the coil which resembles that of an hourglass, with a wider top and bottom section and narrow middle. This type of mattress is durable and affordable, making it popular among many homeowners.
Support for body posture - As the springs of Bonnell spring mattresses are interconnected, they provide generalised rather than individualised support for the user.On the other hand, pocketed spring mattresses, which come with springs that are individually wrapped, provide individualised support that suits the contours of the body.
Sensitivity to movement - The interconnected spring system of Bonnell spring mattresses results in greater sensitivity to motion. As such, light sleepers may prefer the individually-wrapped springs of the pocketed spring mattress, which help to reduce any movements felt across the entire mattress.
Affordability - Bonnell spring mattresses are often more affordable than their pocketed spring counterparts.
