Vono are a British manufactured bed, dating from the 1930s onwards.

Our adjustable slatted bed base can be used as a replacement for tired original Vono sprung bases.

Most Vono beds have a wooden headboard and footboard construction with heavy metal side irons bolting into a metal bracket.

Adjustable Slatted Bed Base For Vono Beds

We sell a few variations of the adjustable bed base, but our base with a length of 188cm long is usually the most suited to standard double size Vono beds.

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

The best way to use this base with a Vono bed is to run a length of wood over the nut.

You can either place the wood the full length of your metal side iron – it can be painted to match the iron frame – or use 4 blocks, one over each nut, in each corner.

Drill a hole in the underside of the wood to sit over the nut.

Vono Bed Collage Making Wood Sides


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.

Open the adjustable bed base our and lay it onto the bed frame. Secure it down with cable ties which we can provide for free.

Place the adjustable bed base on each corner of the bed
