Furniture Springs

What kind of springs are best for upholstered furniture?

There are two primary types of springs found in upholstered furniture: coil springs and zig zag or sinuous springs.  Sinuous springs or zig zag springs are made from one pieces of metal and are bent into a zig zag.  The material typically used in sinuous springs are in gauges 8 to 11 GA wire.  Custom radius is an option and sinuous springs are typically manufactured in cut-to length pieces.  Coil springs are individual springs that can either be formed as open coils, as soft edge or lip coils, or with one end knotted (K1E or K0E).  Coil springs are formed with high-carbon spring wire and heat tempered to ensure resilience.  Furniture manufacturers can determine the desired coil gauge and height.

What is better than 8-way hand tied?

Rigid bar drop-in construction units are an excellent alternative to 8-way hand tied furniture.  The rigid bar drop-in construction unit that we sell is the best in the industry.  It strengthens the customer’s frame, allowing them to remove wood slats or bracing and it can be installed by anyone, typically with 6 to 8 screws.  The units can be modular (one for a chair, two for a loveseat, or three for a sofa), which allows the customer to cut down on SKUs and eliminate freight and handling issues with large one-piece sofa drop-ins.  These rigid bar drop-in units greatly increase throughput in the plant due to the ease of installation and these units can match or better the ride of an 8 way-hand tied piece of furniture.

Can your furniture springs be customized?

Absolutely.  Providing custom component parts is what we do best.  We can assist in customizing various options including the wire gauge, height, and size of the springs to deliver the desired level of firmness or softness to your unique furniture design.
