Thank you for your recent enquiry.


Because our Miracoil springs run head to toe, a Miracoil
mattress is the perfect partner for 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 same mattress.

  • slats should be secured to bedstead properly to prevent
    movement of slats

Metal bedsteads with tubular steel bars instead of slats.


  • not recommended for use with Silentnight mattresses, these do
    not offer uniform support and can cut into upholstery causing
    ridges in sleep surface.
