I’m really torn between the Origins pocket 1500 and the Origins Reflex because I prefer a firmer mattress and although I’ve called to discuss I didn’t want to call again to ask yet more questions so here goes! In the Reflex description it mentions 6 butterfly clips to provide edge support – is this more or less clips than the Pocket 1500 and does the number of butterfly clips in any way affect the quality/performance of the mattress? I’m also wondering if the 2 year warranty on the Reflex reflects the fact that this mattress is aimed at B&Bs/guesthouses given their regular replacement of commercial mattresses – will this mattress last a reasonable time (i.e. beyond 5 years) in a domestic setting, as I wouldn’t want to have to replace in 2-3 years time?
We do recommend the Reflex 1000 for B&B’s / Guest Lets because the firmer upholstery in the top layer means that it accommodates a much wider range of body weights but at the same time we get a lot of feedback that the mattress is very comfortable.
The 2 year guarantee is there as a standard but with correct care and maintenance the mattress can last a lot longer. We advise to flip our mattresses once a month in the first year and then drop it to every 3-4 months in the second year onwards. By doing this you are evenly distributing the wear and tear across both sides of the mattress and increasing the lifespan.
I hope this has answered your questions fully but if you do have any further queries please don’t hesitate to contact us.
