The Open Coil Spring System is a frame that comprises of high tensile steel that is turned into coils. Open coil spring units often are the springs that make up the softer mattresses and the cheaper mattresses. Bonnell spring units are made from different wire thickness and a thicker wire will make a firmer mattress. The thickness is measured by gauge, the lower number being thicker. Common gauges are 13.5g and 12.5g.

Pocket Sprung is a series of individually turned springs that collectively form the sprung part of the mattress. They are wrapped in a lightweight material and either glued or sewn together. Pocket sprung mattresses are classified by the number of individual springs inside the mattress. A 1200 series will be 1200 individual springs in the 5’0” (king size mattress).
