Posture Slat System
All of our bed frames feature our unique Posture Slat System which suits perfectly our Latex Mattresses. A posture slat is a laminated timber slat with a slight upward curve. Our posture slats are made from only quality Plantation Birch wood. They are a standard 53mm wide, but we make them extra thick at 10mm, 2mm thicker than the standard of 8mm. Because they are the best quality, we guarantee them against breakage or flattening for 10 years. Some manufacturers make their posture slats from Beech wood, or make them only 38mm wide. These may develop problems of flattening and breakage.
Slat Support Types
Our range of posture slat support types are called S1, S2 and S3. All are specifically designed to suit your individual support requirements and our Latex beds. The slat types can be different on each side of the bed. For example you may require S2 and your partner S3. Our posture slat range includes up to six individualized support types.
All of our bed frames include our S1 slat system in the price. S2 and S3 prescriptions are an extra cost.
Please try our Tailored Sleep System Consultation to discover which posture slat support type is best suited to your needs.
If you have an existing bed frame and only require our posture slats, we provide custom made posture slat kits to suit your requirements.
Our posture slats are housed in flexible slat holders. This allows slight rotational movement, providing better support and contouring ability. The slat holders themselves have suspension, which provides greater comfort at the centre of the bed where the slats meet. The suspension holders also prolong the life of the slats by reducing direct weight and impact on the slats.
Weight Adjustment Gliders
An additional feature of our posture slat system is our Weight Adjustment Gliders which enable you to double up the slats in the spinal area or where greater support is required. By sliding the Gliders out to the ends, the slats become stiffer and by sliding them together they become more flexible. This enables you to tailor the slats to your exact individual requirements, for better comfort and correct support. This slat support system is further enhanced when combined with one of our Latex Mattresses that has been correctly prescribed.
