Can you tell me what the advantage is of a mattress with titanium coils? Thanks!

None. Titanium is only stronger than steel when dealing with heat. In mattresses, it's nothing more than a gimmick.

I should add to Pete's comment. When metal bends it gets hot. That is why it is stronger.

Dear Consumer, You, or anyone else for that matter, can look up what titanium is all about. One of the things that you will read is that titanium is no stronger than steel. It's lighter in weight and resists corrosion, making it ideal for prothstectics and the space program. Since the coils in a mattress don't get wet, it's use in this application is frivolous.

Titanium is a very durable metal. Meaning that the strength and support will be very good. It will also last a long time. Just think of a golf club. However, titanium in a coil should be measured by how much titanium. Hopefully it is enough to make a difference and not just a marketing ploy. I know sealy does a good job having titanium coils manufactured for them. Then another question is what kind of padding is going on top. If they are using second rate padding, all the titanium in the world isn't going to be comfortable.

Sealy's titanium coils are a titanium alloy, not all titanium....approx. 10% titanium. It's nothing more than a worthless gimmick. Titanium is not stronger than steel in this application.

Right. Any more than ten 10 percent it would cost a furtune. But even so its still better than most springs systems that dont give you anything. I haven't once seen one cone back because the haven't been good quality, where as some other brands just don't hold shape. But if the discussion isn't going to turn to who has the best spring system than we can definitely do u a favor by holding court. I my self think that the triple cable coil that Simmons beauty rest black uses are the best one it comes to strength and longevity. Just pricey... But worth it.

Even without that little bit of titanium, mattresses don't come back because the coils fail...they come back because the memory and poly foams fail. It's a gimmick and nothing more.
