iCoil Mattress Miracles

What's the big deal about iCoil and why should you care? If you were looking for a mattress that would last a lifetime, no matter what the brand name, you'd only have one simple question to ask, but before we get to that question, consider what you're up against as a mattress shopper.

Bed Shopping Is a Nightmare
If you have been bed shopping, you will surely aware of the myriad of different mattress materials that are being used. I remember being confused, myself, with trying to wrap my mind around everything I was being told by the salespeople in different bed stores I would visit. From air, water, latex, gel, memory foam, iCoil and springs of all kinds making up the market.

In spite of the vast array of mattress materials available, it's a well known fact that a whopping 75% to 80% of Americans still prefer sleeping on spring mattresses. With this in mind, you might want to spend a couple of minutes knowing the difference in springs and what that means to you.

  • Bonnell springs are the most common kind of springs that mattresses are made with, so let's take a look at them. The bonnell spring mattresses are made by securing all the springs together as a unit and then surrounding them with a stiff wire, to make a perimeter around the mattress. By tying all the springs together, what you get is, essentially, one great big spring. Not only does this design transfer motion from one person to another, it makes for a very unyielding material. If you end up bending a portion of that perimeter wire, your mattress will be permanently bent there. I had a friend who tied his mattress to the roof of his car, while moving, and the wind lifted the front half of the mattress up and bent it. It was really weird looking when he laid it down, because it stuck up 3' off the boxed spring on one end.

    This is new technology and is most ideal design in mattress springs. These iCoils are so precision-made that they can be compressed, rolled and placed into a take home box. Once you arrive home, with your real mattress in a box, you open the box and the mattress slowly returns to it's exact size and shape. The manufacturer did this to make it possible for you to buy an extremely high quality mattress without creating a dent in your wallet.

Other types of mattress springs were tested using the same criteria and they all failed. The exact results were different, but failure of some type was the common thread.

The pocket springs never returned to anywhere near their original size and shape. The bonnell springs performed worst of all. In fact, remember my friend with the bent springs? Well, the bonnell spring mattress that was rolled up, did the same thing. It remained rolled permanently after being unpacked. It reminded me of a giant roll of chicken wire.

I said, earlier, that you should only have to ask one question when shopping for your new mattress. That question is 'Is there iCoil inside?'
