What would you say about the spring technologies and its evolution?
The introduction of coil spring bedding in the early 20th century was perhaps the mattress industry’s most significant leap forward in technology. Based in part on the coil system used in building carriages, these early innerspring mattresses used a series of steel coils covered with wool, natural fibers or soft fabric for padding. Innerspring technology started with Bonnell Units which is coils tied up each other with helical wire and moving as whole units. Early 1990’s Pocket Springs were introduced to the industry. Pocket springs offered unrivalled support compared to the continuous coil mattresses of the time, in which the rows of coils were formed from a single piece of wire. This is because the individually wrapped springs were able to tailor to changing posture and the contours of the body without causing the whole mattress to respond and disrupt sleeping partners. Early 2000’s tiny pocket springs we call “Tablet pocket springs” technology was introduced to the industry. This is the latest innovative spring product in the mattress industry. This tiny pocket springs increase the mattress comfort by 40%.
We, as Nano Springs, have always made it our principle to invest in new technologies. We have been offering various types of Bonnell Springs, Pocket Springs and Tablet Pocket Springs to our customers.
