Our advanced spring system consists of several thousand interconnected coils made from quality steel, which work together to provide maximum pressure relief. This design provides a much more even distribution of pressure and level of relief than coils that work independently of each other. A conventional mattress usually contains about 1000 springs. Most of our beds have at least twice that, arranged in two or three layers. The lower layer of springs provides deep suspension and absorbs body weight. The upper layer supports and follows the contours of your body – a harmonious and carefully thought-out interaction devised to provide maximum sleeping comfort.
TAILORED WITH THE PASCAL® SYSTEM
Our most advanced spring system is DUX Pascal System – named after the eminent mathematician and physicist Blaise Pascal (1623-1662).
(Pa) is the unit of measure for pressure, e.g. the pressure between a resting body and the springs of a bed. The Pascal system consists of removable spring cassettes arranged according to the body's three comfort zones: shoulders, hips and legs. Each zone can be fitted with a soft, medium or firm cassette. This allows both sides of a double bed to be tailored to suit individual preferences and needs such as pregnancy and back pain.
RESEARCH THAT DELIVERS RESULTS
We would not be where we are today without persistent research and a constant desire at DUX to constantly improve. We have been an industry leader in bed sleep research over the past 85 years, and our numerous tests show superior results.
Our compression simulator tests how much the various sections of the DUX bed applies pressure against the body. Results are then compared with other beds and have so far been very positive: The pressure in a DUX bed is not only lower, but also more evenly distributed than with other beds.
To test the strength of DUX beds we use Fingal – a 280-pound dummy made from solid wood. In the course of a week, Fingal rolls back and forth over newly produced beds 600,000 times, subjecting them to the equivalent of 30 years of use. These tests show that a DUX bed lasts 3 to 4 times longer than the average lifetime of other beds on the market.
