At 140cm x 200cm (4'7 x 6'6), all European and IKEA double size mattresses are wider and longer than standard UK double mattresses.
A standard double size mattress is 135cm x 190cm (4'6 x 6'3) and although the width is similar, the length is shorter by 3" and not suitable for an Ikea bed frame.
So, if you are looking to purchase a double bed frame from IKEA or importing one from a European country, you will require a 140cm x 200cm mattress that fits your bed properly.
At Archers, we offer a wide selection of 140cm x 200cm mattresses ranging from medium support to firm and extra firm support for those who prefer an orthopaedic support.
Support is vitally important when buying a new mattress and our range consists of robust open coil spring systems, body-contouring pocket springs and foam mattresses that benefit from high levels of anti-microbial and dust mite resistance.
Open coil spring are extremely durable and are available in, either 13.5 gauge springs that offer a medium to firm support and a thicker 12.5 gauge wire that provides an extra firm orthopaedic support.
Pocket springs have as many as three times the number of springs you get in an open coil system with each spring housed in its own cloth sleeve.
This ensures the load on one spring is not affected by the one next to it, resulting in a system that provides piston-like support to each part of the sleeper’s body, directly at the point of contact.
Comfort is also important and our range of mattresses benefit from hypo-allergenic fillings, body-moulding memory foam and natural latex.
Hypo-allergenic fillings create an ideal sleeping environment for those who suffer from respiratory problems as they are anti-microbial and inhibit bacteria, fungi and house dust mites.
Memory foam layer is temperature sensitive, designed to soften when it comes into contact with warm surfaces and moulds itself to your body shape.
This reduces the pressure points on your body, creating better blood circulation and resulting in less tossing and turning by evenly distributing your body weight.
Latex is a natural product taken from the Rubber Tree and is hypo-allergenic, extremely long lasting and will retain its comfort levels throughout its lifespan.
Natural latex adapts perfectly to the shape of your body and helps to align your spinal column, whether you lie on your side or your back.
