10" inner coil or spring mattress needed for Murphy Wall Bed. 29 Jun 2021 13:43 #1

I am looking to purchase a king, 10inch inner coil or spring mattress, as recommended by the manufacturer of our Murphy bed. I am having trouble finding a 10 inch innerspring king mattress, and stumbled upon your website and hoping you might be able to help. The Murphy Wall Bed site definitely discourages against all foam, latex or gel, or tempurpedic, due to the weight of those mattresses. Having slept on my share of sofa beds, I want to make sure my guests are comfortable. I am having difficulty even finding a 10" mattress. Can anyone here help me? Any suggestions or direction would be GREATLY appreciated.

In order for people here on the site to provide you accurate information, it would be helpful if you could post the weight restriction (there's usually a minimum and maximum), along with the type of support network that the mattress would be placed upon (slats - how many and how far spaced apart, link deck, solid deck?). And we already know the height limitation is 10".

If you provide that information you should be able to get some good feedback from site members regarding quality items that would fit your needs.

And I'm not sure why the manufacturer of your murphy bed recommends those brands, as they certainly don't have the market cornered on 10" or quality mattresses.

Post back with that information, and hopefully someone here can provide you a few better choices.

The frame supports up to 2000 lbs, and is aluminum. It does not have slats like a platform bed. The frame will be mounted to a piece of wood, that matches the doors of the bank of closets. I hope this helps.

The weight needed is the listed minimum/maximum weight of the mattress to be used, not the capacity of the unit itself. Additionally, what type of surface will the mattress be resting upon? Include a link to the product if available for people to look at.

Here is a link to the hardware information. It is the Elite Aluminum frame.

If you're building your own bed using their Elite Aluminum Hardware Kit, from their website:

When the bed is in the upright position, the mechanism can support a maximum of 220 lbs, which includes the bed panel, bed frame, stiffeners, crossbar, legs and mattress. If the weight limit is exceeded a maximum of 2 Super Springs, per mechanisms, can be used to allow for approximately 20% more weight to be added to the front panel. Note that the 220 pounds would include anything you're attaching to the frame network for decoration/concealment.

They confirmed for me a recommendation of 10" maximum, 70 pounds maximum for a king mattress, with innersprings, so that it stands upright when stored more easily than an all-latex mattress or some all foam mattresses. The mattress is supported by two large wood bed panels that attach to the perimeter frame network to create a solid and flat surface.

So, this would be the basic information anyone on the site would need to be of assistance, and for you to move forward with your own search and supply to potential retailers.

With the limitations in thickness and weight, the comfort and quality of the mattresses from which you'll be able to choose will be a bit compromised. Higher quality high-density polyfoams weight more, and higher quality spring units will tend to use more steel and be a bit higher in profile.

Do you have any recommendations? This is for a guest bedroom that will be used infrequently, but I do want whomever sleeps there to be comfortable.

MMSmith:

No, I don't have any specific recommendations. The information I put together for you is there so that anyone helping you find a product can be sure that whatever they recommend meets your very specific needs.

There are other members here on the forum who are more aligned as online e-tailers, and perhaps they can offer up some suggestions for you, as well as some more knowledgeable people who peruse the site.
