There is no standard size when it comes to Slatted bed bases. It is always best to measure your actual bed frame before ordering.
Bed Bases will be larger if the mattress is sitting in the bed frame, smaller if the mattress is the same size as the bed frame.

The structure of our bed bases are made from either Beech Ply Multiplex or Solid Beech. We strictly only use Beech Sprung Bed Slats. These premium materials are undisputedly the preferred material in the Bed industry.

Do i require a bed centre rail?
All Double Row Slatted Bed Bases require either a Centre Rail or Cross Rails. These are structural parts on the Bed Frame that are designed to take the weight of the Mattress and Sleepers.
If you do not have these, we do supply a replacement kit
- Heavy Duty Centre Rail Kit
- Heavy Duty Cross Rail Kit
What is the different between a Centre Rail Kit or Cross Rails?
A Bed Centre Rail runs down the length of the bed frame; from head to toe. A centre rail would need to be used with Support Ledges.
Cross Rails run across the bed frame, from left to right. The number of cross rails vary from manufacturer to manufacturer; from 2 to 4. We recommend a minimum of three, however four is ideal. Cross Rails are typically found on French Beds

Will a slatted bed base be suitable for my mattress?
Our Slatted Bed Bases are generally suitable for most Mattresses. We would recommend asking your Mattress Supplier to confirm the maximum gap in-between the slats.
If you have a Memory Foam, Latex or Pocket Sprung with a high spring count; we would recommend purchasing a bed base with a small gap in-between the slats (Second-Generation, Third Generation or Fourth Generation)

Wooden and Upholstered Bed Frames
We manufacture all our Slatted Bed Bases to order. We will manufacture them to the expect size you specify. Please ensure you take off a small tolerance of the exact internal size of your bed frame. We recommend 3mm - 5mm off the total length and width. You want to ensure our slatted bed base fits within your bed frame. A snug fit is ideal.
Metal Bed Frames
Vary depending on the structure of the bed frame
Are wooden slatted bed bases better than metal?
Yes, metal slatted bed bases are generally mass produced. They also seem to have a low number of sprung slats; meaning the gap in-between the slats are fairly large. Most of the Metal bed bases we have come across also tend to use Birch or Polar Slats. It is also very a hard to get these in custom sizes; so most bed manufacturers compromise the quality.
Why don’t you have webbing in the middle?
A Fabric belt down middle of the slatted bed base is meant to help distribute the weight of the sleeper. However this is a very old technique that is no longer used by Premium Bed Base manufacturers around Europe. We see this technique generally used on most cost effective bed bases that use Birch Slats.
