Steel Bed Slats

Steel Bed Slats Beef Up Your Existing Bed

So you have this amazing mattress and a really sweet bed but it turns out you don’t have the correct support underneath your mattress set. You thought the boxspring and mattress would be fine until you realized the warranty for the set calls for center supports with feet. Steel bed slats are the best way to protect your bed and are sometimes called center supports or slat kits. You don’t want your mattress set to be vulnerable to failure. Unfortunately support with most complete beds that include headboard and footboard is sub-par or is offered as optional at best.  An important part of any steel bed slat kit is the feet and they fasten to the legs of the steel slats; these adjustable footings act as piers to your floor and assure warranty and strengthen the entire bed support system.

What Kind Of Steel Bed Slats Are Available?

Beds with a wood headboard and footboard and wood side rails are vulnerable to cracking and breaking can use a couple different types of steel bed slats with feet. These heavy duty bars run from one side of the bed to the other and securely screw into the wood lip of the wooden side rails. These metal slats are made from hardened steel and are designed to replace weaker wooden rails that warp, crack, and can break.
