Slatted Frame – May or must you have one and if so, which one?

The right mattress is indisputably important for a good night's sleep. But does it really make a difference whether there is a slatted frame under the mattress or not? As large as the selection of different mattresses and bed frames is, almost as large is the selection of slatted frames. Slatted frames come in many different varieties, including roll-up slats, frame slats, elastic or firm, adjustable slats, slatted frames with different zones, with solid wood or spring wood slats, latex sprung slatted frames, plate slats, ...

Of course, the mattress plays a decisive role in the selection of the slatted frame, because it is good if the slatted frame fits the mattress so that it can support it sensibly.

The decisive advantage that a slatted frame brings is that the mattress is well ventilated. Every person emits moisture at night and produces condensation due to the heat difference between the top and bottom. This moisture stays inside and under the mattress. If the mattress lies directly on the floor or in a bed box that is closed at the sides and bottom, there is little opportunity for the moisture to evaporate. If the mattress lies on a slatted frame, it is well ventilated and the moisture can escape, which prevents odor and mold formation. If the mattress lies directly on the floor, one must ensure

that the mattress is turned over regularly so that mold does not form. Also, the bedding should be folded back so that air can reach the mattress.

What to consider when buying a slatted frame?

If you decide to put the mattress on a slatted frame, there are a few points to consider.
  1. 1. In large or double beds with a lying surface of 140x200 cm or more, two slatted frames should be used.

  2. 2. Not every slatted frame fits every bed frame. Roll-up slats need continuous, stable support. Also, some beds do not have a continuous center brace, so the roll-up slat cannot rest there. Some bed frames have constructive obstacles in the corners or at the head end, so that frame slats do not fit in length.

  3. 3. Frame slats with spring wood slats, with zones or simple plate slats (most of them up to 250€ in 90x200cm), are neither suitable for delicate mattresses nor for heavy sleepers, because they deform too much.

  4. 4. With a stable slatted frame, preferably made of solid wood bars, almost everyone is well served if he/she owns the right mattress ... Approx. 5cm slat width and just under 4cm slat spacing provide good stability and ventilation.

  5. 5. The ergonomics of sleeping is predominantly defined by the mattress. The base should be as consistent, stable, and ventilated as possible.

  6. 6. Therefore, the floor, straight or covered in tatami is basically good for ergonomics, only for ventilation you need to take care of by yourself.

  7. 7. Sleepers with special sensitivities may need an ergonomic slatted frame that is particularly sensitive to the shoulders or hips. However, it is also important here that the slatted frame has consistent deformability and does not only yield in the middle.
