Sealy – The Worldwide Leader
Widely renowned as the most well-known mattress maker, Sealy mattresses have been around for over 125 years.
Sealy’s success comes from its dedication to R&D, spending more money than any other brand in testing and researching new forms of mattress technology. As a result you can guarantee that the Sealy mattress which you choose will be extremely comfortable at a very cost-effective price.
In terms of individual mattresses the Sealy Posturepedic Mattress range is very popular, and for people looking for a luxury mattress you can’t get much better than the Sealy Millionaire Luxury Mattress.

Silentnight – UK’s Biggest Brand
Whilst Sealy is arguably the leading worldwide mattress brand, Silentnight is the market leader when it comes to the UK.
The success of Silentnight mattresses can be attributed in large part to their innovative approach. Their patented No Roll Together construction technology ensures that double beds have maximum comfort for both partners, despite any weight differences, and they were one of the first companies to start using Latex and develop memory foam mattresses.
