Hi Wlee,

Thanks for the links to the photos.

That certainly is a beautiful platform bed you have. What size do you have?

I can’t tell the spacing between the slats from the information presented on their web site, but you’d generally want about 3” or less for an all-latex configuration. Were you considering the Bunkie board as a manner of addressing this spacing issue, or as a manner of attempting to reinforce your slat deck?

If you wish to reinforce your slats, you may wish to re-make some of them as T-slats, as shown here .

If you can provide more specifics regarding the slat spacing and the reason you’re considering the Bunkie board, I can be more accurate in my suggestions.

Hi Phoenix,
The slats themselves on our Queen sized bed are 2 1/2 ' X 7/8". The slats are spaced 2 1/2" apart. We've been using the bunky board for our tempurpedic which is the original Deluxe model so it is not light by any means. We were told to use it for support. I'm assuming a 10" Dunlop mattress will be at least the same weight. I thought the bunk board to address the problem of no center strut and then the coir to make sure there was an air layer. I'm not thinking my husband will want to add the additional 'T' to each of the slats.

Hi Wlee,

Thanks for that clarification.

If your Bunkie board uses cardboard on the top deck, you may wish to add the coir bed rug for breathability. If not, you’d want to take a look at the spacing between the slats of your Bunkie board to make sure that they fall within the guidelines from most latex manufactures of 3” or less for slat spacing.

As for center reinforcement, you’d want to observe someone lying down upon the mattress and see if the slats deflect even with the Bunkie board on top, and monitor that over time. If it does sag you’d want to address it, not only because of comfort issues, but also because the potential loss of any warranty coverage.

Hey Supasta33,

Sometimes our consumers come in and out of the TMU, so not always get responses from people that posted in the past. Just giving you a heads up if you have other questions, feel free to post again, and we will try to help.

Thanks again,
Sensei
