Simmons Beautyrest Platinum vs.Black Mattress for a 240 Lb. Man.

Claire writes:
Hi Pete,
The specifications for the Simmons Beautyrest Platinum Extra Firm are not as detailed as they are for the Simmons Beautyrest Black L-Class Extra Firm. There is no “construction” segment. 
Can you give more detail regarding the coil count (Cal King specifically) and coil gauge for the Platinum? 
My husband and I are very different body types. He is about 6′, 240 lbs., and I am about 5′, 130. 
We are both side sleepers. 
We are not interested in all bells and whistles, just a mattress that will hold up for several years to come. 
We already have a latex topper to go on it, as you recommend.

Hi Claire
The Platinum models are inappropriate for the weight of your husband.
For longevity, the triple strand coils of the Black is what you’ll need to support a man that size.
Even so, you will need to use your latex topper with it.
To answer your question, the coil density of the Platinum is 1000 in queen.
The actual coil count is only 900 in queen. “Coil Density” is one of the industry’s BS terms.
The coil counts are proportionately higher in the king size.
There is only a few coils difference between a standard king and a Cal. king.
The gauge of wire is 13.75

Thanks, Pete
