A little bit about Silentnight.

Silentnight mattresses are where I originally fell in love with memory foam. They aren’t shy to pile the stuff on! A hybrid mattress is one that uses both springs and foam for support. Silentnight mattresses use a continuous coil system that they call the Ergo Coil as their core, with thick layers of supporting foam and memory foam comfort layers, and they aren’t shy with the memory foam! I think Silentnight are one of the few mattresses, along with the South African Genessi, that one can actually see a body imprint in the memory foam, and see the foam slowly rise back to its former position.

Silentnight’s lavish amounts of memory foam on their mattresses makes them really comfortable to lie on, and reminds one of what memory foam is supposed to be doing. If you’re the type that buys memory foam toppers for your mattress, next time just buy a memory foam mattress that really does the job: Silentnight. The nice thing about hybrid beds is that you get the support you want from the coils, but the cushioning foam feeling at the same time, with much less sag than a totally foam mattress such as Genessi.

Silentnight’s memory foam is all gel infused for extra cooling. Their method is to add the gel as part of the memory foam manufacture, rather than using gel beads. The gel adds to the density of the mattress too, making it more durable and supportive, and of course, cooler. Memory foam has been accused of being hot to sleep on, but a lot of that also depends on the foam’s manufacture. Open cell memory foam will conduit warm air away from the body and out of the mattress more effectively than closed cell memory foam. Coupled with the gel, open cell memory foam is basically the same as a coil mattress, especially when the core of the mattress is coils, like Silentnight.

The material used on Silentnight mattresses is also quite interesting, as it has silver particles woven into it. The silver is antibacterial, and repels insects, like mosquitos, keeps the mattress bedbug and dust mite resistant, and is even healthier for the sleeper. They also have a couple mattresses with a bamboo fabric ticking. The bamboo fabric is breathable and gives a natural scent, rather than a chemical one, which large amounts of memory foam can be prone to doing. The fabric is soft and very comfortable to lie on. It’s not the same as Simmons’ Oxy plus fabric, which uses a little more than a soft and luxurious fabric, but it is a great feel and calming smell. The bamboo is also insect repellent and the like.

Silentnight mattresses are soft, extremely supportive for the lower back and pressure points, and generally all round comfortable mattresses. They have all the characteristics of memory foam, including moulding around your body for support under every area, superior pressure point relief, and zero motion transfer, but all the coolness of an innerspring mattress.
