The Brick Orthopaedic Mattress is recommended only for those who want the firmest imaginable sleeping surface, firmer even than most conventional “Orthopaedic” mattresses.
The 10″ orthopaedic mattress is made up of a core with 1000 pocket spring unit made from a 1.9mm gauge wire which is the firmest possible spring unit for a mattress. To add further firmness the primary filling is an ultra firm foam often used in heavy duty seating. So along with the high levels of support provided by the spring unit the initial surface of this mattress is also comparatively hard. For a softer initial feel to the mattress we recomend using a Laytec or Memory foam mattress topper.
Please note the term “orthopaedic” when used to describe mattresses generally just means an extra firm mattress; it is not based on any medical standard or type of mattress construction. It is best not to assume that an orthopaedic mattress or extra firm mattresses are the best option for bad backs, finding a mattress with the correct support for your preferred sleeping position and body weight is often the best option. We also offer the ‘Colonial’ pocket sprung mattress as a less but still extra firm mattress.

Will I be able to get a bigger mattress in my bedroom?

This is useful when access is limited as it makes delivery of bigger beds possible. All mattresses over 6ft wide can be made in two halves with a zip for joining for a surcharge of £70. Our divan bases can also be split in two or even four sections to ensure they will fit in your room of choice for an extra £28 per extra split.
