Glideaway’s rail system is a patented, slat-less hook rail bed frame that bolt up to nearly any bed with a head board and footboard. Their bed rails are built and shaped from 4 inch wide hardened carbon steel which provides the support and strength required by nearly every mattress making company. The down hooks have flattened ends that allow just enough flex in the sides for a snug and safe fit. The 64CS 8-18 has an L shape design that is made from hardened rolled steel gives even support along the entire length of the boxspring making the need for wooden slats unnecessary. The 64CS 8-18 steel rails also have much needed center support from a hardened steel cross support that that not only keeps the side rails from spreading but supports the middle of the bed with feet. Two legs and two adjustable feet that are threaded and can be positioned 8 inches to 18 inches off the floor for the proper level of boxspring and mattress support and bed connection. The rails measure approximately 82″ long leaving just enough space to make the bed between the queen mattress set at the headboard and foot board ends to slip your hand down and make.
