Well, the mechanics involved in making a spring mattress is one such subject about which the questions are just plenty and the answers are too rare. We have tried answering a few of such questions in this article.
A lot of people often ask a lot of questions regarding the spring mattresses as in how they work, how they are made etc. Well, when you buy a spring mattress, the spring is undeniably the most important detailing of the mattress that will decide whether the marketing claims made by the company of the spring mattress are true or not. There are various types of springs that come in the mattresses, we have tried to pick up the case of the ones with vanadium coating that are considered to be the best spring mattress in the world of mattresses. You can browse through http://www.urbanladder.com for some amazing range of mattresses.
The spring: Well, like there are different kinds of mattresses that are available in the market, there are different types of springs as well that are available in the market. The mattress spring always happens to be the compression springs. The compression springs actually happen to have the basic ones as the cylindrical tube that has coiled wire with a fixed number of turns. These springs often provide a certain resistance to force which means that if you apply pressure on it, it will resist the pressure and it happens to be the mechanics on which the s[ring mattresses are made.
Wait. It is not that simple. There are various other factors also that are involved such as we are often asked that do spring continue to get back to the original shape forever? Let’s answer this. It totally depends on the selection of the perfect spring as per your body weight depending on the support as well as the durability. If your bodyweight goes on the heavier side then you would need to have firmer springs to support you. And in a similar manner, if your body weight is light, you can go ahead with the fewer firm springs.
Also, people often ask what should be the shape of the springs in their mattress for the best use.
We often tell them how there are two different shapes that are used in the mattress world in which one is the usually used one which is the cylindrical shape while the other is the Barel shaped.
Then you should also understand the use of turns in spring and what does it do for your mattress. Well, turns are also called as ‘active turns’. These happen to be the number of coils that are there in your spring. In the case of our fgacorite Vi- spring, there are usually 6 turns. In the case of Hypnos, ReActive Springs are used. Now you must be wondering what are ReActive springs, well, these are the springs that are barrel-shaped and can have up to 17 turns in the spring.
Well, what should be the shape of your compression spring?
As they say, to each its own, this is the case in springs used in the mattress world as well. In case, there was a standard number of turns and a standard shape that every manufacturer used in making a mattress then there wouldn’t have been any difference in any of the mattresses that are available in the market and you would find all the mattresses were the same!
The role of wire gauge and diameter: Wire Gauge and diameter also play a very important role in determining the efficiency of the final product. The wire gauge actually happens to be the thickness of the wire which is used and diameter here refers to the wideness of the spring. Well, both of them contribute to the final product in a way that if the wire gauge is 1.22 mm that means that the spring is the softest and in case, it is around 1.62 mm that means that the spring is the hardest ever.
These are not the only two sizes available in the gauge, there are various others, it was just to give you an idea. Also, then there is the diameter of the spring that determines its efficiency as it determines the number of springs that you can have in your mattress. If the diameter is large that means you can incorporate a lesser number of springs in your mattress. There are various sizes available in the diameter. Again, ‘to each its own’ here.
It is impossible to explain the complete mechanics of working of a spring mattress in a single article but now you might have a good idea of how it works. We hope that you found this article useful. We would bring more such informative articles for you.
