That glass mat is just the separator between the two lead poles.

Sealed Lead Acid Batteries comes in two variants.
Absorbed Glass Mat, or AGM.
Gel batteries. Gel batteries are much less sensitive to vibration and shock and can be used in any position. AGM still prefer to stand upright, even if it isn't strictly necessary.

You probably won't need a gel battery.
Otherwise you only need to check that the specifications are the same (voltage, polarity, connectors and measures) or exceed the original (charge and discharge current)

There might also be some additives (calcium, strontium and whatnot) to the battery that add to its life, but I wouldn't care about it. That usually only matter if you deep discharge the batteries, or use them in high power applications such as starter batteries.
Wrong is evil and must be defeated. - Jeff Ello
