Q: do the slats need to be a curtain distance apart for your pocket sprung mattresses not to become fatly in the future. because the hypnos mattresses can't have the slats any more than 7cm apartbecause of the pocket springs size Question from adam

A: Wood Slats - slats should be smooth, preferably with chamfered edges to prevent cut through to the mattress underside. - maximum space between the slats should be no more than 8 - 9cm - minimum width of the slats should be approx 70mm - the entire length of the mattress should be supported by slats. Metal bedsteads with tubular steel bars instead of slats. - not recommended for use with our mattresses, these do not offer suniform support and can cut into upholstery causing ridges in the sleep surface.
