Q : Are memory foam mattresses suitable for slatted base frame?


A : Yes, you can use a memory foam mattress on a slatted base.
It is worth stating something about the minimum 'grade' of slats on a slatted base.

  • Slats should be smooth, preferably with chamfered edges to prevent cut through to the mattress underside.
  • Maximum space between slats should be no more than 100mm.
  • Minimum width of slats should be approx. 70mm.
  • The entire length of the mattress should be supported by slats, i.e.. slat ladder length should be the same as the mattress.
  • Slats should be secured to the bedstead properly to prevent movement of slats.
