What Does Coil Count Mean?

Definition

The coil count of a mattress indicates the number of individual high-density coils inside. Coil gauge is determined by the diameter of the individual coils, where thicker coils have a lower gauge.

Explanation of Quality

Coil design, wiring gauge, and the quality of the materials all impact the durability, support, and comfort of the mattress, as well. Some mattresses use thicker wire or other padding techniques that create a lower coil count, but the mattresses are still high quality.
