The Monza mattress from Rest Assured’s Silhouette range is one of the best selling options from the range as it sits towards the middle of the range and thus comes at a relatively cheap price while also having outstanding specifications. This is a no-frills mattress, just a well constructed luxury pocket sprung mattress with a high spring count of 1000 in the king size option. This has been stepped down proportionally to smaller sizes such as double so that there is still the same density of pocket springs.
The key different between pocket mattresses as opposed to the traditional open coil choice is that pocket springs are individually wrapped and are able to move independently of eachother unlike open coil in which adjacent springs are connected. With an open coil mattress, movement on one side disturbs the other and if only one person is on the mattress or one of the sleepers are considerably heavier, then the mattress could tilt. This isn’t the case with pocket springs but before the likes of Rest Assured’s Monza came onto the market, there was an issue with slatted bedsteads in which some pocket springs would slip between slats and created uncomfortable ridges on the sleeping surface.
This issue has been fixed by an innovative solution from Rest Assured which involves applying a reinforcing board to the base of the mattress which then becomes single-sided only and doesn’t require turning. This firm base stops pocket springs slipping through and also has non-slip properties which keeps your mattress in place. The Monza mattress and other mattresses with this feature of course work equally well with divan bases. As Rest Assured are such an iconic name in UK mattresses, they’re able to give a 5 year warranty with the Monza which is virtually unheard of with pocket sprung mattresses from lesser brands.
