Q : Which mattress is best for use with a metal frame bed?


A : Metal bedsteads with tubular steel bars instead of slats are
not recommended for use with Silentnight mattresses, these do not
offer uniform support and can cut into upholstery causing ridges in
sleep surface.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. Wood slats-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
