Sleep On Latex and Ask An Expert 11 Apr 2021 08:51 #1

Hello. First timer here. I was curious as to why Sleep On Latex, as a Trusted Member, lacks a contact link on the Ask An Expert list. I emailed my questions to them directly but also want to use this venue. My questions regard the Airframe. The slats look more than 3 inches apart. If that's the case, do the perforated plates compensate for that and does the twin size have the center support? Also, does the Airframe accommodate non SOL mattresses? I have a SleepEZ DIY latex twin mattress on their slatted wood foundation and a metal bedframe and am considering switching to an Airframe since it combines foundation and frame and looks neater, at least for me. Attached is a snap of the Airframe off SOL's site. It's probably larger than the twin but I still wondered about the presence of a center rail on the latter. The SleepEZ wood foundation doesn't have a center rail and the assembly leaflet indicates that size doesn't need it.

In my experience with SoL their customer service is excellent and they're very prompt to respond to inquiries during working hours, so I expect you'll receive a response to your email addressing your questions this morning.

That's a great question about whether the twin has a center support or not. I forgot to ask about that last I called and I look forward to the answer.

I did learn from SOL that the Airframe has a 10-year warranty. I'm interested in the frame because the design gives you a "solid" even and firm base, while still getting ventilation through all the perforated holes. I can't see how the latex mattress would sink down anywhere, like it can between slats.

With slat gaps on regular frames, even at 2.5" apart, I can feel them one thinner mattresses. I wonder if a tough, thick canvas (around 10-24 oz maybe?) for a bottom encasement cover could nullify the slat feel. However, I don't know if that would inhibit breathability too much.

Thanks. SOL responded to the email (They don't plan on having a link on Ask an Expert). The twin size doesn't need a center rail. I figure now that's the case for all foundations of that size. It should accommodate all twin mattresses but it is specific to their mattress. I'm sticking with the SleepEz foundation. I checked the bottom and didn't feel any sag between the slats.
