Simmons Beautyrest History
Simmons Bedding Company Beginnings
Simmons is one of the oldest companies of its kind, and one of the top mattress brands next to Serta and Sealy. Founded in 1870 in Kenosha, Wisconsin, Simmons got its start manufacturing wooden insulators and cheese boxes. In 1876, Zalmon G. Simmons changed the company's scope with mass produced woven wire mattresses. In 1889, Simmons introduced spiral coil springs. With spiral coil springs and Simmons' cutting edge manufacturing process, the price of a woven wire mattress fell from $12 to 95 cents, which allowed all income brackets to afford comfortable sleep. Over the past century-and-a-half, Simmons has continued to be a leader in innovation and new mattress technologies, including their invention of the patented wrapped coil springs in 1900 and the machine that massed produced them in 1925. To this day, all Simmons mattresses are designed and manufactured in the United States.
Beautyrest & the Patented Pocketed Coil®
While wrapped coil springs were first introduced in 1900, the time and labor needed to produce a wrapped coil spring mattress made them only available to the upper class. It wasn't until 1925, when Simmons engineer John Franklin Gail designed a machine that could mass produce them, that the Pocketed Coil® Springs became affordable to everyday people. This machine marked the beginning of the Simmons Beautyrest Mattress Collection and a 90+ year journey that continues to evolve as Simmons introduces new and improved Beautyrest mattress technologies each year.
But what makes the Pocketed Coil®'s so special today? The wrapped design of Beautyrest Pocketed Coil® Springs allow them to adjust to your weight independently of one another. Because the coils aren't tied to each other, they are able to contour more effectively to the curves of your body and transfer much less motion. Light sleepers - or those who sleep next to one - will appreciate the Super Pocketed Coil®
system as it transfers even less motion between sleeping partners while simultaneously providing solid back support.
Simmons Beautyrest Collections
Simmons Beautyrest mattresses are available in a variety of models and price points. The three Simmons Beautyrest collections are: Beautyrest Recharge, Recharge World Class, and Beautyrest Black. You may have heard of the Beautyrest Elite, Beautyrest Anniversary, or Beautyrest Exceptionale, but these collections have since been discontinued. All Beautyrest mattresses feature the following:
- Beautyrest Pocketed Coil Technology® for contouring and motion transfer reduction
- Reinforced edge support to combat roll-off
- Energy Foam® for greater stability
- Transflexion® Comfort Technology for a long comfort life
- No-flip design (no need to rotate or flip the mattress)
So what is different about the three Beautyrest collections? Differences exist in the coil count and type of comfort materials used in the mattresses. Let's examine each collection individually:
Beautyrest Recharge: Affordable Performance
Beautyrest Recharge is the entry-level Beautyrest series, and features affordable mattresses with Beautyrest's innovative Recharge technology. The Air Cool Design in the Recharge mattress features AirCool Foams and a ventilated edge that allows airflow through the mattress, to maintain a comfortably cool sleep environment all night long. Recharge mattresses count on Beautyrest's proven Pocketed Coil System for support, which uses hundreds of individually wrapped coils that work independently to effectively contour to your body while providing solid support to your back.
Recharge World Class: High End Performance
The Recharge World Class collection builds upon the Recharge system to provide enhanced comfort and support. One thousand individually pocketed coils provide ideal conforming support, and select models include an additional one thousand Micro Pocketed Coils to help you maintain ideal sleeping posture. AirCool Memory Foam is premium memory foam infused with gel to provide exceptional pressure relief and enhanced support while avoiding the heat retention problems of standard memory foam.
Beautyrest Black: Exquisite Luxury
Beautyrest Black mattresses are the top-of-the-line in the Beautyrest collection. These mattresses are comprised of luxurious materials like silk, cashmere, and alpaca, and feature Beautyrest Advanced Pocketed Coil™ Springs that provide strong support, exceptional motion separation, and precise contouring. Beautyrest Black mattresses come backed by an impressive 20-year warranty.
