The Traditional Collection
by Stearns & Foster
is a collection of innerspring mattresses. All the series in this collection feature silk-infused covers, high-density upholstery foam (furniture grade), Indulge Quilt
comfort padding, titanium alloy coils, foam encasement edge support, and linen
-wrapped foundations. Traditional Collection
mattresses are available in the following sizes: Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, Split Queen, King, and California King.
The names of models in the Stearns & Foster Traditional Collection
depend on the retailer or group of retailers. For instance, compare Sears
. It does make it challenging to compare the same model in different venues.
The innersprings of mattresses in the Stearns & Foster Traditional Collection
are made of tempered high-gauge titanium alloy coils. A titanium alloy is used because of its strength-to-weight ratio, its resiliency, its resistance to corrosion, and its durability. These coils are individually wrapped for enhanced response.
Two kinds of coils are used, depending on the model. The lower-priced models use twice-tempered 8" single pocket coils. The higher-priced models have the Intelicoil
. This is a 2-in-1 coil, a shorter, narrower, lighter coil within the taller, wider, heavier coil. As the outer coil is compressed by the weight of a sleeper, when it gets to the level of the inner coil the resistance increases markedly. This is to provide more durability, more support where most needed, and more support for heavier persons. Since these are individual pocket coils, each coil responds independently to the pressure applied directly to it. Thus the support is tailored to the shape and weight of the sleeper's body, reducing pressure points and minimizing motion transfer.
Foam encasement provides support for both the coils and the sleeping surface.
Above the innerspring of a Stearns & Foster Traditional Collection
mattress are several layers of foam and fiber: FlameGuard
fiber, hyper-soft foam, cushioning fibers, and HD foam. Some models add Smart Latex
, a blend of latex with soy, aloe, etc. This composite comfort core adds cushioning to the orthopedic support of the coils. It is in this comfort core where the overall firmness of the mattress is determined. These foams have already been compressed so that they are more durable.
The quilted cover of Traditional Collection
mattresses features natural silk. Silk, well-known for smoothness and softness, also is very durable and strong. This is to provide long-lasting comfort and breathability. The silk-containing fabric is quilted with the hypersoft foams and the fiber paddings.
Stearns & Foster Traditional Collection
mattresses have a 25 year warranty. The first 10 are full coverage, and the last 15 are prorated. Stearns & Foster
box springs for the Traditional Collection
are wrapped in linen. All but the Utra Firm models are adjustable bed compatible.
