More on Key Spring Air Mattress Features (Available on Select Models)

Hand imprint in gel memory foam

Gflex Gel Memory Foam

Gflex Gel Memory Foam is a type of memory foam that is combined with a high-performance gel, which helps you sleep cooler and reduces painful pressure points. This means less tossing and turning for a deeper night of rest. It is a very durable material, so it will extend the comfort life of your mattress. It is recommended for those who enjoy the contouring of memory foam, but may not want to experience the sinking feeling.

Available in the Embrace and Exquisite collections. Sleep Sense Hybrid Plus models have gel-infused memory foam inserts.

Foam Encased Edge Support

The foam-encased edge support uses a high-density bloc foam, which provides a uniform support across the entire mattress, as well as a firm seating edge. This helps prevent that rolling-off-the-edge feeling, which is especially beneficial for couples who are sharing a mattress.

Center Zoning

Center zoning delivers long-lasting back support using high-density coils or body contouring with an individually encased coil design. The added firmness in the middle of the bed with this design would be very helpful to those dealing with back pain who need that extra support throughout the night.

Available on the Back Supporter and Four Seasons Back Supporter collections.

Antimicrobial Fibers

Antimicrobial fibers are woven into the quilt to provide a healthier night of sleep. They are resistant to mold, mildew and dust-mites, meaning they can be of great help to those suffering from allergies. The antimicrobial fibers will go a long way in maintaining a fresh and clean mattress, improving the nightly experience and extending the life of the mattress.

Delivery Method

Spring Air mattresses are available through several stores and online retailers. Delivery will be made by an in-home team and is usually free. There are additional options to add in-home setup and removal of your old mattress.

More about Spring Air

Spring Air originated many mattress designs and features now used by leading competitors. Francis Karr, the founder, came up with the free-end double offset coil design. This design uses progressive resistance, which adjusts to meet each sleeper’s comfort needs. This became the most copied design in the industry and was only the beginning of how they would shake things up.

Spring Air started the trend of using a quilted surface, rather than a button-top. In the 50's, they introduced the Health Center mattress. It was the first design with separate support zones for different areas of the body. Spring Air also introduced the pillow top mattress in 1973, which has become a staple feature in the industry.

Spring Air is a global brand, with 8 domestic factories and 35 international licensees. They operate in 43 countries around the world.

Under the Spring Air umbrella is a luxury brand called Chattam & Wells. Read our Chattam & Wells Mattress Review to learn more about it.
