If you like the feel of a traditionally sprung open coil mattress but also want a mattress which is bed bug free then this is the one for you. This is the firmest bed bug free mattress we stock here at Wedo Mattresses and is a firm favourite with our customers.
The firm support is provided by the firm 12.5 gauge spring unit. This spring unit is made using the strongest tensile wire available which not only makes it firm but means it is also very durable. The spring unit also features a rod edge wire frame which helps to prevent roll-off as well as helping the mattress keep its shape for longer. On top of this open coil spring unit are layers of polyester and luxurious orthopaedic fillings which, while not taking away from the firmness of the mattress, add that extra layer of comfort that is absolutely necessary for a sound night's sleep.
These natural fillings and the cover are all treated with Ecoshield, an insect repellent which is completely harmless to humans and actually smells good as well. Its main active ingredient is 100% natural eucalyptus oil which not only has a subtle but pleasant smell, but is also known to help relieve sinus infections, bronchitis, flu and the common cold. The active ingredient is held in microcapsules which are released it over a long period of time by only breaking open when the mattress is in use. This is an excellent meeting of science and nature and will ensure that this mattress and all the others in this range provide possibly the healthiest sleeping environment possible.
The mattress has a quality finish as well, with air vents that allow air to flow freely through the mattress to ensure it stays fresher for longer. There are handles on either side to make turning the mattress simple and easy, while it is also hand tufted. This is traditional process is performed by a skilled craftsman and involved threading a length of fabric through the mattress which keeps all the layers in place and ensures the mattress doesn't lose its shape.
- Great mattress. Great shop
The mattress was ordered at 10am on the Wednesday and delivered 2pm the next day. Terrific service. The mattress is firm and and very comfortable. As other reviewers have said, the eucalyptus oil is a bit strong at first but this soon fades away. All in all I cannot recommend this mattress or this company enough. Highly commended awards to both.

- Me 1 - 0 Bedbugs
Bedbugs are such a pain and my boy has been having so much trouble with them in his bed he was sleeping with me and my husband and he's 7 years old. I was at my wits end and eventually decided to buy this mattress which is probably the best decision I have made in a long time! The whoile bedbug issue has disappeared. The mattress is also excellently made, it just feels like quality. Never heard of Shire before but glad I found them on this site. Delivery and ordering were next day and stress free as welll.
