The Source 5 king size contract mattress from Shire Beds consists of medium open coil springs, hypo-allergenic fillings and a deep quilted cotton cover.

Organisations such as hotels, guest houses, care homes and student accommodation must adhere to strict government regulations and only use Source 5 (Crib 5) mattresses that are specifically designed for commercial use.  

Mattresses and divan sets used in these establishments must adhere to BS7177 ignition fire regularity standards that go further than those required for domestic home use.

At the core of the mattress is a robust 13.5 gauge open coil spring system that is made up of rows of hour-glass shaped springs, connected at the top and bottom by a spiral wire, known as a helical wire.

Additional strength is added to the border of the interior by attaching a thick rod-edge wire to the perimeter of the spring system. This prevents border breakdown on edges that are sat on regularly.

This additional edge support allows you the use of the full width and lets you sleep comfortably right up to the edge of the mattress without the sensation of rolling off.

Dual-sided, the mattress requires to be flipped over and rotated regularly to even out the wear and tear. This will take care of the mattress and extend its lifespan.

Manufactured in the UK by Shire Beds, the Source 5 Contract mattress is primarily designed for the commercial market, but is widely used in the family home due to its stricter fire ignition regulations.
