Got something to discuss?
Does this bed have slats or a solid platform. I need a solid platform for my mattress
It is a solid platform. No slats on this one.
Your description of best platforms stated that slats are better for the mattress distribution and comfort. Both the drawer and non-drawer version of this bed is solid? Why is that?
The bed frame that you are looking at uses a solid deck platform. For most platform beds a slatted wood system is used. A slat system can provide support as well as air circulation around a mattress. In the case of this platform style we provide a fiber pad to go between the mattress and the decking which allows for the same air circulation that you get from a slat system. Both systems should be equally sturdy and durable.
Hello. I have a king sized captains bed. Slats support the mattress but I don’t think it’s enough for 2 people that weigh 200 pounds each. Need to improve support before I buy and ruin a new mattress. Can I just put plywood underneath for support or should I add slats? What is a fiber pad?
