Heavy Duty Orthopedic Innersprings
Naturepedic uses only the very best innersprings available. Our flagship crib innerspring features 252 coils at 15.5 gauge with 9 gauge border wire. This provides ideal support and weight distribution. Our crib classic model features 150 coils at 13 gauge coils with 9 guage border wire. Our twin, full, and queen size mattresses feature 360, 528. and 650 coils respectively.
How many coils do I want in an innerspring?
In general, the lower the gauge, the heavier the steel. However, lower gauge also means larger springs. As the springs become larger, fewer of them can fit in the mattress. Increasing the number of coils while reducing the weight of the steel per coil provides a smoother and overall firmer response from the innerspring since weight is more evenly distributed. This weight distribution is key as it provides improved support at every point. In general, the higher the coil count, the more expensive the innerspring.
NOTE: Beware of companies that only advertise "coil count." This figure does not indicate the number of coils in the mattress, but rather the number of coils in an equivalent full size mattress.
