Bed slats are long pieces of wood or metal. The slats are placed across the base of the bed frame and are set apart around 2- 2.75 inches away from each other to provide support for the mattress. The slats are made to distribute the body weight evenly and prevent the mattress from sinking. Some bed frames have bed slats that are conjoined like a ladder or a staircase. This type of bed slat usually covered in fabric to keep the slats joined and avoid slipping. You can also find bed frames that have individual slats that are not connected and are placed next to each other.
Bed slats have been available for many years as well as box springs, but in recent year the bed slats have started to gain more popularity than box springs.
Box springs are a metal or wooden box that is wrapped in fabric. Classic box springs contained coil springs for shock absorption and to evenly disperse weight. These springs were made to push the coils in the innerspring mattress directly above.
