With its blend of strong 12.5 gauge open coil springs, topped off with generous fillings and a visco cotton cover, the Ortho Backcare from Shire Beds is designed to be firm, yet comfortable.

The Ortho Backcare mattress is skilfully tailored and features a hand tufted finish; a process that secures the layers of fillings on both sides and ensures they are held firmly in place.

Its generous layers within the mattress consist of hypo-allergenic white fibre fillings that create an ideal sleeping environment for allergy sufferers and asthmatics.

The foundation of the mattress is made up of a 12.5 gauge open coil interior, one of the firmest wire used in mattress manufacturing in the UK today.

Open coil spring interiors consist of rows of robust springs running from head to toe and connected into one single unit by a spiral wire, known as a helical wire.

To add further strength to the unit, a thick 6 gauge rode-edge wire is attached to the perimeter of the spring system. This prevents border breakdown and allows you the use of the full width of the mattress.

Dual-sided, the mattress requires to be flipped over and rotated from head to toe on a regular basis; flag-stitched handles are fitted to assist you with turning. This will take care of it and enhance its lifespan.

Manufactured in the UK by Shire Beds, the Ortho Backcare is perfect for those looking for a quality double mattress, with a firm support.
