King Size Zip & Link Mattresses From John Ryan by Design

Buying a mattress isn’t a decision to rush into, especially with the variety of products to choose from. At John Ryan By Design we specialise in selling high-grade mattresses that are designed to give you a comfortable night’s sleep. We’ve built our reputation around the knowledge we have of the mattress industry.

Every detail matters to us, which is why we’ll take you through all the steps of the mattress buying process. We’ll make sure you understand material, size, build quality, spring tension and dimensions. This will help you make an informed decision about the kind of mattress that suits your preferences.

We’ll give an honest recommendation on every product, including the collection of luxury king zip and link mattresses. This kind of bed uses zippers and bars that can be linked together or separated. The result is one big bed or two single beds. King size and link mattresses can be crafted with different spring tensions on each side, accommodating differently weighted sleepers.

Before buying a mattress, it’s important to understand size and weight. Mattress dimensions will give you an idea of whether you’ll be comfortable sleeping in the bed.

What are the dimensions of zip and link mattresses?

Our zip and link mattresses are split into three categories:

Kingsize ziplink – (5’0 x 6’6”) – Compromising 2 x 2’6” x 6’6” beds
Extra king ziplink – (6’0 x 6’3”) – Compromising 2 x 3’0” x 6’3” beds
Super king ziplink – (6’0 x 6’6”) – Compromising 2 x 3’0” x 6’6’ beds

Once you have the right dimensions you’ll be able to decide on the kind of mattress that suits you.

What kind of king size zip and link mattresses do we offer?

Our king size zip and link mattresses are split into two categories:

Origins – Starter level ziplink mattresses at affordable prices
