Q : Could you please confirm to me what the firmness rating is
for the Stockholm. Many websites sell this bed but they all say
different things, from soft through to firm. Also, are the select
mattresses and divan bed mattresses the same?If so, are they
suitable for slatted bed bases? Within your old range of mattresses
you have a group of mattresses that have a stronger base to be used
on slatted bed frames, so are your new mattresses not designed for
this?


 


A : Comfort is very subjective which is why you will see the
same mattress with a different comfort rating in another outlet.
The only way to determine comfort is to try the mattress for
yourself. Select is the term given to a range of mattresses. A
divan mattress usually means that the mattress has been designed
for the particular divan base that it is been matched with.Our
miracoil spring system runs from head to toe this makes all our
miracoil mattressessuitable for bedstead frames. It is worth
stating something about the minimum 'grade' of slats on a slatted
base. Wood slats-slats should be smooth, preferably with chamfered
edges to prevent cut through to the mattress underside-maximum
space between slats should be no more than 100mm-minimum width of
slats should be approx. 70mm-the entire length of the mattress
should be supported by slats, i.e.. slat ladder length should be
same mattress.-slats should be secured to bedstead properly to
prevent movement of slatsMetal bedsteads with tubular steel bars
instead of slats.-not recommended for use with Silentnight
mattresses, these do not offer uniform support and can cut into
upholstery causing ridges in sleep surface.
