Bed slats are a base that is designed for a bed. Bed slats are several linked wooden bars are placed from one end of the frame to the other. The slats are crafted from durable wood such as pine or beech, these slats work with your mattress to enable additional support. There are two types of slat choices you can choose from and these are solid slats or sprung slats.
Bed slats are important because they provide support for the bed frame and your mattress to allow a more comfy and supported sleep. Bed slats also help to improve airflow from one side of the bed to the other which will help to the mattress stay adequately ventilated and fresher for longer.
There are two types of slats you can choose from solid slats and sprung slats. The main difference between solid and sprung slats is how they are joined to the bed and the structure they use.
Solid slats are suggested if you would rather an receive comfort and support from only your mattress, an example of this is a medium firm mattress could feel softer if it has the support of sprung slats, this is because they have not as much resistance as solid slats do. Similarly, a firmer mattress might not feel as firm as you would like if your bed frame has sprung slats.
Solid slats offer an excellent dispersal of pressure due to its structure. The even dispersal aids with back support and a solid base also absorbs movement which a sprung base does not do. This improves sleep and reduces disruptions when you are sleeping next to someone and they are moving around during the night.
Sprung slats imitate the structure of springs, are joined to the bed in a way that allows them to bend and push upwards. They provide the bed with a spongy and bouncy feel, and work as shock absorbers for the mattress. The bed slats are joined one by one to the frame and each slat holds the pressure independently contrasting to the solid slats where the pressure is distributed across the entire bed base.
