These rolls of wood slats are used on Pacific Rim’s platform beds to properly support heavy latex mattresses, and they are for sale separately.
The poplar slats, which are .75″ thick and 2.44″ wide, are joined together with jute webbing. Standard spacing between slats is about 2.5″. Closer spacing of about 1.5″ is available for an up-charge. This tighter spacing is sometimes recommended for exuberant children and super-thick latex mattresses; but be sure to check with your mattress manufacturer for recommended slat spacing before ordering because closer slats reduces airflow to the mattress, which can lead to mold and mildew.
A roll of these sturdy wood slats can be used on most bed frames. To make sure the slats will work in yours, be sure to measure your frame carefully and check against the exact dimensions of the slat rolls. Also be aware that the frame must have a lip for the slats to sit on. Custom widths can be made for a $68 upcharge.
