Insights into Premier Inn mattress features and covers
Premier Inn Hypnos Mattress Features
The Premier Inn Hypnos mattress seems to lack robust side support. Our tests showed that the mattress content bulges near the edges, indicating insufficient side stitching or side support. Although the pillow top appears tufted, it’s unclear whether it’s hand or machine tufted.
Our Approach to Mattress Construction
We incorporate butterfly perimeter clips and four-row machine-stitched borders. This design prevents the mattress from bulging – a common issue when pressure is applied near the edges, causing the cover and side panels to separate from the internal components.
Updated Silentnight Mattress Design and the Importance of Tufting
The latest Silentnight Premier Inn mattress introduces a significant change with its microfibre woven quilted cover, which replaces traditional tufting. This design choice can enhance comfort, especially for those who may feel discomfort from the tufts.
However, it’s important to understand the role of tufting in mattress design. Tufting involves securing the mattress layers by pulling and securing them at various points. This process prevents the internal components, such as fibres from shifting or bunching up over time. Without tufting, there’s a risk that these materials could move out of place, leading to uneven wear and potentially creating lumps or depressions in the mattress. This can affect the mattress’s comfort and longevity, as well as its ability to provide consistent support.
In the absence of tufting, it’s crucial that the mattress design incorporates other means to maintain the integrity of its internal structure. While the quilted cover of the Silentnight model offers a smooth, even surface, it’s essential to ensure that the internal components are stabilised to prevent movement and maintain the mattress’s shape and support over time.
