Our mattresses are compatible with a variety of bed frames and bases.
Our memory foam and hybrid mattresses are best supported on solid or slatted mattress foundations. We offer a variety of bed bases which are all compatible with our mattresses. Non-Amerisleep foundations, however, should have slats no more than 2.75 inches apart.
Platform beds have a solid or slatted base, so they can provide proper support for our mattresses. If you have a platform bed with large gaps between slats that was not designed by Amerisleep, we suggest buying extra slats or a bunkie board to create a sturdier surface for your mattress and meet warranty guidelines.
Adjustable Bed Frames
Both our memory foam and hybrid mattresses work well with adjustable bed frames. They’re adaptable and flexible, so they can move with the base without becoming damaged or worn. We even sell two adjustable bed frames to pair with our beds: the Amerisleep Adjustable Bed and the Amerisleep Adjustable Bed+.
While our mattresses can work with most bed frames and foundations, it’s not compatible with absolutely every type of mattress support — namely box springs.
Box springs are best paired with innerspring mattresses, and since innerspring beds were the most common for many years, a lot of us have box springs at home. Box springs contain coils within and as a result, are bouncy. Beds with foam layers can experience premature wear, tear, and unexpected damage when paired with one of these because they do not offer the even, sturdy support foam beds need.
If you intend to use an existing bed frame, please confirm dimensions & assembly options for your bedframe to ensure compatibility.
