Introductory line - Designed for guest rooms and children's beds. Built with the same
principles as our Fox-O-Pedic and Chiropractic lines and with more emphasis on the cost of materials.
Layering or upholstering is the absolute MOST IMPORTANT part of an InnerSpring design. The normal body impression
or sag is most often caused by inferior or cheaper materials, all though all mattresses will soften and conform
to the body and lose its support, it should take many years to become unusable.
AT FOX, WE LAYER OUR INNERSPRINGS WITH THE FOLLOWING COMPONENTS
IN DIFFERENT CONFIGURATIONS AND NUMBER OF LAYERS
This layer is a netting to prevent the other upholstery from being pushed into the springs when weight is applied.
(on top of springs)
As it says it is a pad anywhere from 1/4" to 1" thick that keeps us from feeing the spring and adds support and
life to your mattress.
- SIDE SUPPORTS:
Either foam or steel, they are designed to firm up the edge of the mattress.
MOST IMPORTANT of all the layers, it is what we feel. It is the comfort of your set and a
HUGE party of the durability. This is typically the weak link in mass production mattresses because of cost. At
FOX, we overspend in this area because we KNOW the importance and since we build our own and cut out the
middleman, we can overspend and still keep our prices below the industry standard. Foam is the most common and is
a weight or density issue for quality. Firmness has nothing to do with quality. (Look in out Foam Mattress section for a better explaination) Also cotton, wool and other exotic fibers can be used but in
most cases just add cost and do a little for the quality of sleep.
- TICKING / COVER:
Thousands of ticks are available and 99.9% work fine from Damasks, Knits, Woven, ect.,
They all work well. At FOX we do not believe in putting a $50 per yard fabric on a $100 mattress. We normally
would put a $20 per yard fabric on a $500 matress and invest more on the inside because we know that is where it
counts the most. Try to look past the tick and ask about the inside as you shop.
(Traditional & No-Flip Available)
This line has been developed for over 3 generations. A line of beds we designed for the master bedroom, custom
built with extra No-Sag systems, side supports, lumbar supports and the highest quality of cushioning material
available in its price range.
(Traditional & No-Flip Available)
The Best of the Best. Built using only the finest and most durable materials in the mattress business. Built for
the individual who expects the best.
(or as Simmons says,"Pocketed Coil")
Hundreds of springs wrapped in fabric. Designed to eliminate movement you would feel from your partner. Built in
many price points with different firmnesses.
For those Inquiring Minds here's some technical specifications
Types of spring systems vary from manufacturers. As a rule, if you buy a mid grade matt and up the springs usually
work very well.To judge a spring you need to understandthe language. All springs are based off a standard full
size or double 4/6 4'6" spring. The coil count or spring name (ie. 312, 368, 704,760 etc.), are the number of
springs in a full. You would add for a queen, king and subtract for twins to come up with the same springs per
square foot. Wire thickness is another factor to consider and this runs like electric wire. The higher the number,
the thinner the wire (ie. 12.5 is the thickest and 15.5 is thinner).
Also, pay attention to how the spring is held together; helical wires, foam encased, etc. Fabric encased coils take a spring and insert it
into a pocket of fabric and glue them together. Offset or hinged, bonnell springs normally use wire to hold them together. Border
rods have become an option on all designs.
