So you own 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 under it in the middle.
Heavy duty steel bed slats are the best way to protect your bed, mattress, comfort and support. (and yes even your safety from collapse). You need to be extremely leery of ordinary sub-standard metal / wood middle bars, slats, and slat kits. In most cases these “supports” were initially given to them for free or for a discounted cost with the bed when they bought it new.
You don’t want your mattress set to be vulnerable to failure.
Unfortunately the first concern of the people that built and sold you your bed is NOT complying with your mattress warranty’s requirements. Standard bed supports included with beds having a headboard, foot-board and side rails just don’t make the cut. Replacing them with a stronger steel bed slat kit having plenty of angle iron cross bars and lots of feet really is the key.
Look for systems with plenty of steel legs with adjustable footing. This footing acts as piers down to your floor which helps assure warranty and prevent sag caused by lack of proper base frame support. Not only that, but it also can increase comfort and support of your mattress by strengthening the entire bed and sleep system.
What Kind Of Steel Bed Slats Are Available?
For those who have beds with a wood headboard, footboard, and wood side rails your bed could be vulnerable to cracking and breaking. There are a couple different types of steel bed slats with feet that can work for this type of bed. 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 even worse break.
The models you will want to look into that we offer include:
The GS-3 XS Center Support is our top seller – a universal support that fits full, queen, and king size beds
The BB 8-18 are our heaviest steel bed slat system with feet and are strong enough to support heavier people, softside waterbeds, and of course anyone that just wants the strongest middle support system money can buy.
