Pocket spring mattress
A mattress with pocket springs is the right choice if you are looking for good support and pressure distribution. In addition, pocket springs have excellent ventilation in themselves. But be careful: a mattress never consists solely of pocket springs, because a top layer of other material is always applied. How to choose the right mattress? You can read that below!
Discover Ubed pocket spring mattresses
All our mattresses contain pocket springs and a 3D Climate top layer and cover. This means that every mattress is provided with optimal support and ventilation.
You should pay attention to this with a pocket spring mattress
The material of the top layer and the cover: this ultimately determines how ventilated and comfortable the mattress is. If you choose foam or latex layers, you will see that the mattress warms up faster during the night. That is why at Ubed we use polyester for the top layer and the cover. These 3D Climate layers provide excellent temperature and moisture regulation, are easy to keep fresh and offer personal comfort.
The presence of comfort zones: you have pocket spring mattresses without zones, but also with 3, 5, 7 or sometimes even 9 zones. These zones, for example your hips, back and shoulders, ensure that you sink into the mattress more easily in your heavier parts, so you get a natural position when you lie on the mattress. At Ubed we offer 7-zone pocket spring mattresses, this is the maximum number of zones you need to get sufficient support.
The quality of the springs: this is more difficult to determine as a customer, as companies do not communicate directly about this. Therefore, feel free to talk to the seller, whether online or offline. In addition, people often talk about the quantity of feathers, but this is less important than the quality. The quantity is often used as a way to promote certain models.
What are the advantages of a pocket spring mattress?
Since a pocket spring is resilient, you can expect good support over a long time. The minimum 'technical' lifespan of a mattress with pocket springs is therefore 10 years. It is important that you choose a mattress with 7 zones.
As mentioned, pocket springs allow air and moisture to pass through easily, which is positive. It is important that you choose a mattress with a top layer of ventilating material, such as polyester.
The comfort of a mattress varies as top layers of cold foam, memory foam, latex or polyester all feel different. Polyester optimally combines comfort and ventilation and is available in different hardnesses.

Which bed base is best for a pocket spring mattress?
A pocket spring mattress can be used on any type of bed base, provided it has sufficient ventilation. This is not a problem with Ubed, as the mattress also provides optimal ventilation on the sides. You can even place our pocket spring mattress on an electrically adjustable bed base.
Should you turn a pocket spring mattress?
No, if you buy a higher quality mattress, this is not necessary. A pocket spring mattress with a top layer is constructed from bottom to top in a certain order, so when you turn the mattress over, the structure of the materials is no longer the same and you lose comfort and support.
Is a pocket spring mattress durable?
That depends on what kind of material is used. Metal springs are 100% recyclable, but if you bond them with foam types such as cold foam and memory foam, recycling becomes very difficult. That is why we at Ubed have chosen not to glue all materials. This way you can choose your own hardness and the mattress can easily be recycled afterwards!
