Your body weight will determine the overall spring tension you would require, as shown by the table below
Upto 8 Stone / 50kg
8-16 Stone / 50-101kg
16 Stone / 101kg Upwards
From there, your sleeping habits/personal preference will then determine how you would like the mattress to feel in the comfort layers. This is where you will achieve the feel you are looking for (soft/medium/firm). Do you know if you have a preference for a soft, medium or firm?
If you do not, I would advise to go out and try the;
Vispring Devonshire – Soft in upper layers – Comparable with the Artisan Luxury
Once you have done that please get back in touch with your preferences and I will be able to point you in the right direction with a lot more accuracy.
Our pocket sprung mattresses will be suitable for slatted bases as long as the gaps between the slats are no more than 3 inches. If this is the case, then we would always advise boarding over this with a thin MDF/Plywood layer to create a uniform platform divan
I hope that helps and if you have any further questions please get back in touch on 0161 250 9527 or [email protected].
