This is the support layer in a mattress. On top of the innerspring layer there is the comfort layer.

The innerspring mattress has coils inside the mattress.
These coils come in different shapes.
Let’s explore some types of coils in a mattress.
Bonnell coils are the oldest coils found in a mattress. They are hourglass shaped springs and knotted at the end. They give extra support in a mattress. In the same time, this type of coils are the less expensive ones. They are found in the budget friendly mattresses. As is easier to produce them.
In the continuous type - the rows of coils connect with one piece of metal. The rows of continuous coils go from head to toes. The cost to produce these coils is not high. These coils are recommended for both single sleepers and family. Those who sleep with a partner might feel the other person while he is tossing & turning around during the night. . Although, the continuous coils are connected by helical coils, you can still feel some motion transfer. But, the design of the continuous coils is strong. Combining with a thick comfort layer on top it will make a good mattress.
Offset coils are similar to the bonnell coils. They come in the same shape - hourglass. They do have some differences that make them a little better than bonnell coils. The offset coils are considered a little more quiet and comfortable. They are not so noisy and do not transfer so much motion. Having more features than the bonnell coils, the offset coils are a little more expensive to manufacture.
Pocketed coils are made from many coils that are individually packed in material. These coils are sewn or gluten together. On these coils you will not feel any motion transfer, even if your partner is heavier than you. The pocketed coils are more expensive than other coils. The mattresses made from individually wrapped coils are usually hybrid mattresses. These mattress models are more durable and supportive.
Nanocoils & Microcoils
Nanocoils and microcoils are types of coils that are made to feel you more comfortable when you sleep. These coils are very thin around 1 -3 inches. They are placed in the layers closer to the comfort top. As they are so thin, they help the support layer of the mattress, as well as the top layer. Nanocoils are even thiner than 1 inch. And that makes these types of coils so special. Small, but with great features to support your mattress.
