This new adjustable slatted bed base is for use on standard size 4 ft 6″ double beds, as well as odd sized beds. It can be used with antique and vintage British and French beds, made from metal or wood.

This listing illustrates and provides fitting details of the adjustable slatted bed base on an antique French wooden bed measuring 140 cm x 190 cm.

Sizes

The length is fixed at 188 cm long – to fit a 190 cm length bed, and this cannot be altered.

The width however slides / extends to any size between 85 cm and 150 cm wide. We would recommend that you use this base on the beds listed below, or anything between 115 cm and 150 cm wide by 190 cm long.

  • 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.

  • It can also be fitted to some modern beds, and in bespoke sleeping areas in houses, boats or caravans.

Fitting

  • The 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 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.

Further information on fitting can be found under each listing.

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.

Specifications

  • This adjustable slatted bed base has a dark blue metal frame with 27 lightly sprung beech slats.
  • 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.
  • It weighs approximately 20kg and is shipped in its smallest form, approximately 85 x 188 cm.

Fitting the base to wooden beds:

Most wooden beds have some existing form of supports, usually in the form of cross bars which fit into or on metal or wooden brackets on the sides of the bed.

If your bed does not have these cross bars, then you need to add them which is a simple task.

Click here for our blog on making cross bars and a central support for your French antique bed.

We always add a central leg to allow the cross bar to bow down a little reducing the stress on the sides of your bed.

When you have cross bars, place the base onto them and simply pull the base apart to extend it.

Adjustable Slatted Bed Base – French Antique Wooden Double Beds The base doesn’t move and doesn’t need to be fixed in place when used within the frame of a bed.

If however you feel you would like to secure it, you can always use cable ties to tie it to your cross bars, or drill through the metal frame into the cross bars if you prefer.

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