Adjustable Slatted Bed Base Antique British Edwardian Vono Double Beds

The adjustable slatted bed base is shown here on a 140 cm by 190 cm (4 ft 6″ by 6 ft 3″ ) British Vono double bed.

This new adjustable bed base is for use on standard size 4 ft 6″ double beds, as well as odd sized beds.

It is suitable for many vintage and antique French and British beds measuring between 3 ft 9″ and 5 ft wide by a standard length of 6 ft 3″ long.

It can be used with metal and wooden framed beds.

Size:

  • The length is fixed at 188 cm long – to fit a 190 cm length bed.
  • The width is not notched and can extend to any size between 85 cm and 150 cm wide.
  • In particular it is excellent for the following size beds:
    • 3 ft 9″ x 6 ft 3″ – Large Single 115 cm x 190 cm
    • 4 ft x 6 ft 3″ – Small Double 120 cm x 190 cm
    • 4 ft 6″ x 6 ft 3″ – Standard Double 130 cm x 190 cm
    • 5 ft x 6 ft 3″- King Size width, but the length is 6 ft 3″ (190 cm ) not 6 ft 7″ (200 cm) like a standard UK king size.

Styles:

The adjustable slatted bed base can be used with many of the following types of beds.

Click the links for each associated listing.

  • It can also be used with modern beds, homemade beds and in bespoke sleeping areas in houses, boats or caravans.

Practicality

  • It is self supporting in the centre so needs no central support.
  • The width on the base is variable so you can always re-use this base with larger or smaller bed frames.
  • It is ideal for small narrow staircases when other fixed bed bases are too wide.

Fitting – Generic Information – See below for British Vono bed fitting information.

  • The adjustable slatted bed base needs securing to most types of metal bed where it sits on top of the bed frame.
  • Because the width is movable, it can slide, so must be secured.
  • You can drill through the metal of the frame and bed and use bolts to secure it, or we can provide cable ties on request, free of charge. They work well, with ease and can be hidden.
  • Where the adjustable slatted bed base sits within a bed frame, for example, on wooden, upholstered or corbeille beds, it does not usually need securing. If the base does move, or you prefer to secure it, then again, you can use cable ties to secure it to your cross bars.

Specifications

  • This base has a dark blue metal frame with 27 lightly sprung hardwood slats with beech veneer finish.
  • The slats fit into strong black plastic brackets on the metal frame.
  • It comes with 4 end caps which can be moved to the ends on show.
  • The base weighs approximately 20kg and is shipped in its smallest form approximately 85 x 188 cm.

Fitting the adjustable slatted bed base to British Vono beds:

The gallery photo shows the adjustable slatted bed base on a British Vono double bed measuring 140 cm wide by 190 cm in length.

The base should sit on all 4 corners of your metal frame. In the case of British Vono beds, at each corner there is a fixing nut aprox 6 cms along the side iron.

Vono bed example

 

The best way to use this base with a Vono bed is to run a piece of wood the length of your metal side iron, drilling a hole in the underside of the wood to sit over the nut.

For the Vono bed in our photos we have used 4 cm x 2 cm pine, cut to 190 cm long.

Mark and drill a small hole just wide enough to cover the nut while still requiring a hammer to force it in place. If the wood is fitted tightly over the nut, the whole length of wood will not move.

Vono Bed Making Wood Sides

The wood can be painted to match the side irons.

You can also just use 4 wood blocks in each corner rather than running the wood the full length of the side irons if you prefer.

Place the adjustable bed base on each corner of the bed and tie down with cable ties.

Vono Bed + Adjustable Slatted Bed Base

If your bed is of a slightly different construction then the slats may still fit, if you are in doubt please contact us and we will provide some advice.
