It is probably quicker and easier than you think when it comes to picking the right spring system for you. First of all you need to decide if you mind your mattress having motion. The old reliable Bonnell spring system which was invented back in the early 1900’s, in my opinion is the one that used to last a very long time. This is system that offers the most steel and lasts the longest. They come in different gauge thickness, (usually 13.5 or 13). While these tend to be durable they have motion. If you do not want motion then you should look at the pocketed coil mattress systems. Check out our blog for “Pocketed coil” info.
Also check our blog on the spring systems that are not very durable and therefore we do not offer them such as the 460 verticoil or the 650 luraflex.
Here is an interesting fact according to Wikipedia: Emissions from memory foam mattresses may directly cause more respiratory irritation than other mattresses. A 2002 Norwegian study has found that foam mattresses are 4 to 8 times more likely to host dust mite feces than spring mattresses.
