The Expedition Pocket features 1000 pocket springs for the type of support given by a traditional mattress, whilst the internal structure is enhanced by Duralite encapsulation. A perfect mix of venerable and contemporary craftsmanship, ensuring the mattress is both comfortable and built to last.
In plain English, this means that you get 1000 metal springs, which are able to move independently from each other, allowing the mattress surface to 'follow your shape' as you lie on it. This is important for any mattress worth its salt. No one's back is perfectly flat, so your natural curves need to be accommodated by your mattress, if it's going to provide comfort and support.
You'll find that the Expedition is wonderful to sleep on regardless of whether you lay on your back or your side. The springs adjust their level of pressure instantaneously, constantly adapting to your position. By affording greater pressure to the heaveir parts of the body (such as your hips and shoulders), this allows your body weight to be evenly distributed, preventing pressure points and the aches and pains associated with them.
Motion transfer is kept to a minimum too. If you share your mattress with a partner, the design of pocket springs prevent the sensation of you both rolling together, even if there is a notable difference in weight and build, between you.
Duralite encapsulation is where the Expedition shines even further. Many people don't realise but there is an inherent design flaw to most sprung mattresses, in terms of the 'rod edge wire' which gives the mattress it's shape. The likelihood is that you'll have noticed this wire if you've owned a sprung mattress before. Basically this wire bends out of shape over time, especially if you sit on the edge of the mattress to put on your socks and shoes! This becomes and even bigger problem for shaped caravan mattresses, as the shape means the sides are even more prone to collapse.
With the Expedition pocket, we've made the bold move of replacing the traditional edge wire with a sturdy Duralite 'wall', keeping the pocket springs safely nestled in place, whilst the mattress edges are reinforced.
Guess what? This means you can sit on the edge of the mattress to your hearts content, without the risk of damaging it. The tough but flexible Duralite edges means that the mattress can even be bent and it'll still spring back to its correct shape!
If you're concerned that the mattress might be a little heavy due to its generous 9 inch (23cm) depth, that's not an issue either. Duralite is tough but lightweight, meaning you can more the mattress with ease.
The mattress cover is breathable and absorbent, infused by Tencel fibres.
As with all of our Duralite Mattress Range, the Expedition is confidently supplied with a 6 Year Warranty period. Peace of body, peace of mind.
