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. Slatted bases should have slats no more than 2.75 inches apart — we even sell our Amerisleep Mattress Foundation designed to pair perfectly with our mattresses.
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, we suggest buying extra slats or a bunkie board to create a sturdier surface for your mattress and meet warranty guidelines.
Adjustable Bed Frames
Our memory foam 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.
