Sprung mattress

Sprung mattresses

Sprung mattresses are great at distributing weight, so there will be no undue pressure on any part of your body, giving you a restful, supported night’s sleep. If you’re a hot sleeper, then sprung mattresses are a great choice as they offer outstanding air circulation, feeling cooler and drier than latex and foam. Plus, sprung mattresses are extremely durable and offer great value for money too.

      Quality and testing

      Durability

      To test strength and durability we use a machine that simulates the movements of a person weighing 140 kg rolling around in bed 50,000 times. A pressure gauge measures the effect on springs, frames, slats and fillings. The construction must hold up to the highest requirements.

      Flammability

      Tests are conducted by placing a cigarette on different areas of the mattress. For UK and North America, the requirements are higher, and an open flame is used to test flame resistance (for UK and US flame retardant are used on the mattresses). IKEA has banned the hazardous brominated flame retardants. For the UK and US markets we only use a phosphor organic flame retardant which is a less hazardous flame retardant. The requirement is that the mattress cannot catch on fire.

      Comfort

      We test the individual mattresses comfort features such as pressure distribution, point elasticity, flexibility, temperature and moisture distribution. We also test the firmness of all mattresses. This is performed using a pressure test, which records the resistance when pressure is put on the mattress.

      Fabric

      Special fabric tests are conducted to ensure strength, durability, washability and stain resistance. The tests include pulling and tearing, and spilling liquids to ensure the ticking resists stains from various fluids.

      Chemicals

      The general policy at IKEA is to avoid all chemicals that are not absolutely necessary. That's why we deliberately refrain from using e.g. antibacterial treatment, anti-mite chemicals and scotch guard. All mattresses are tested for chemicals to ensure that they meet strictest standards.

      Caring for your mattress

      Vacuuming the mattress helps to remove dust and mites. The foam and latex and some mattress pads have machine washable cover. For all other mattresses; if something spills and stains the mattress, use a mild soap with cold water or upholstery cleaner. Apply water sparingly. Be sure not to soak the mattress with water or any other fluid. Avoid all chemicals as these can seriously damage the mattress and could have a negative effect on health. An excellent way to protect a mattress is to complement it with a mattress pad. A mattress pad extends the life of the mattress, makes it more hygienic, easier to remove and air and also makes the bed easier to make. Mattress protectors are also a great way to help your mattress stay fresher and cleaner for longer, while reducing general wear and tear.

      • Don’t bend the mattress. This can cause damage to interior springs and materials. If you must get the mattress through a tight doorway, flex it gently.
      • When carrying the mattress, carry it on its side. This is the easiest way to handle the mattress and will help avoid damage. Use the handles on the sides of the mattress only when you rotate the mattress; never when you carry it.
