Best Memory Foam Simplified Mattress for High BMI people
Check this out . Easy to assemble and lightweight, so should be easy to move. Has a solid deck.
Thanks Phoenix, yes exactly like that. Altho maybe a bit higher off the ground, but easy to assemble and solid deck is a hit! I still sort of like this one at Amazon tho:
Do you know anything about this? Good reviews for what that's worth...

The amazon product you refer to is not a solid deck and I would have the same concern with items like this as I mention in the foundation thread, of the eventual bending of the thin wire strands, as well as the tendency that some of these strands, over time, can have to press into the base foam (what many manufacturers will refer to as cheese slicers). It varies by brand, design, and the mattress used, of course. I do not have any experience with this item or its quality, but there does seem to be quite a bit of variance in the steel used coming out of China with many of these bases.
Fyi, I also found that Room and Board sells a board designed to be put on top of the platform, under foam mattresses, to help them wear better... I will probably buy one at some point...
Yes, that looks like a Bunkie Board with a firmer particle board top (instead of the usual cardboard). Your only concern might be the noise between the bottom of this piece and the top of your bedframe grid network, so some sort of fabric or a thin piece of foam might be advisable. Looks like a sturdy product.
Hmm, ok. So, to double back to the beginning, are there any of these simple platform bed frames that you think are solid enough for a heavy foam mattress? 10-14" high, cal king, no headboard or footboard, just a durable platform? Somehow I don't think the Brooklyn Bedding frame I bought is quite solid enough (ie I think the slats are too far apart).
For mattresses with a high density polyfoam base, 5” or less gaps would be recommended and this base is approved by Brooklyn Bedding for their mattresses using such a base. For an all-latex mattress, 3” or less between gaps would normally be recommended. The base you bought is one of the stronger of these types in the marketplace.
You're correct. The afton would be a base strong enough to support a heavy latex or polyfoam mattress. It has a good center support, and uses maple on the perimeter and legs, and uses poplar for the slats.
