There are often so many terms and technologies when it comes to mattress systems and beds, that it can be tricky to know what’s what. You know that you should know what kind of spring system you want to buy, but you’ve never had a full explanation. Until now that is!

In this article, we’re going to unpack what an independent pocketed spring system is and help you decide if it’s the right mattress type for your needs. Getting a good night’s sleep is what we’re dedicated to and by giving you all the information you need to make an informed decision; we hope that you’ll be getting plenty of those good nights after reading this.

How does a pocket spring system work?

 An independent pocketed spring system is inside the mattress itself that has each spring individually wrapped in fabric. This helps to hold up the bed and gives it extra support. With each individual spring covered in fabric, it also helps prevent friction in between the springs, ensuring better motion isolation.

These are just some of the advantages of independent pocketed spring systems, so let’s take a detailed look at what other advantages this type of mattress provides.

 The advantages of a pocket spring mattress

 It’s not rocket science to understand what customers want from a bed. They want a bed that’s comfortable, supportive, long-lasting and will enable them to get a restful, relaxing night’s sleep. When it comes to these types of beds, the best pocket spring system mattresses offer all these benefits and more.

Reduced motion transfer

Thanks to the fact that each spring is individually wrapped in fabric, the amount of friction and movement produced when turning over or moving is greatly reduced. This makes it ideal for a couple sharing a bed because the pocket spring system reduces motion transfer, so you hardly feel your partner moving (if at all).


The individually wrapped springs provide excellent support to your body weight when sleeping. Because the springs are at the bottom of the mattress, with material or foam layers above it, the springs help to keep the mattress strong, whilst enabling the softer layers above to keep you both comfortable and supported all night long.


Some mattresses tend to sag at the edges because they do not have enough edge support. Pocket spring mattresses have reinforced edges or foam encasing, making them much more durable.

 Cooler sleep temperature

The pocket spring system allows air to circulate freely through the mattress thus ensuring good ventilation all night long. This helps to keep your body temperature regular, ensuring you won’t get too hot or too cold.

 What is the difference between an open spring and a pocketed spring system?

 Open spring systems are traditionally where spring mattresses began. The springs are not covered and are grouped together adjacent to each other. Pocketed spring systems introduced the individual wrapping of each spring. Here are a few of the main differences between these types of systems.

  • Pocket spring systems offer more motion isolation than open spring systems.
  • Pocket spring mattresses offer targeted support to the body whereas open spring mattresses offer more generalized support.

Why should you choose a pocket spring mattress?

 When it comes to buying a bed, you need to consider a few elements:

  • What kind of bed comfort or type of mattress do I want?
  • What is my budget?

Independent pocketed spring systems are an excellent choice for those who want motion isolation, comfort, and support in one.
