How does coil gauge and coil count impact mattress quality? | Custom Mattress Makers

There are many factors to consider when purchasing an innerspring or encased coil mattress. Many terms, like coil gauge and coil count, can give insight on the quality of the mattress.

Coil gauge refers to the thickness of the coils that make up the mattress. Typically, a mattress coil gauge ranges between 12 and 15. The lower the number of the gauge, the thicker and stiffer the coil will be, resulting in a firmer mattress. If you are looking for a softer mattress, choose a higher gauge number.

Coil count is how many coils make up the mattress. As a general rule, customers should look for mattresses that meet the minimum size requirements and avoid mattresses with low coil counts. For example, a full mattress should have at least 300 coils and a queen should have at least 400 coils.
