We would like to take a few moments of your time to answer some frequently asked questions about our Deluxe Adjustable Beds. A few minutes in the section should answer a good number of questions.
Q: Will your Adjustable Bed Frame fit in my current bed?
A: In most cases, the answer to this question is yes. Your new Adjustable Bed Frame can be placed in a couple different ways. The most popular way to use these frames is with the Adjustable Bed Frame Legs. Bed frame legs simply screw into the adjustable foundation and are available in 2″, 7″ and 9″ heights. You may also use the foundation without any legs if you have a platform bed and you don’t want to add much height, but you will have to be sure there is an area for the cord to run through to get to your outlet, and you need to be sure your bed is strong enough to support the weight of the adjustable frame. For beds such as sleigh beds, they will usually come with some slats in them to put a box spring on. When they slats are strong enough, you can sit the adjustable foundation right on the slats, but we usually recommend taking the slats out and using the bed legs so the weight of the adjustable unit is directly on the floor.
Q: What size bed legs should I get?
A: This depends on the overall height you want for the bed. To calculate this, decide how high you want the top of your mattress. Take that number and subtract the height of the mattress, then subtract 7.5″ from that (height of the adjustable foundation) The number you are left with is the height of the legs you need.
Example: I want the top of my mattress to be 26″ from the floor. The mattress I’m getting is the 10″ Nimbus. 26″ (desired height) – 10″ (mattress)= 16″ – 7.5″ (height of adjustable Foundation) = 8.5″ In this case, I would order the adjustable bed frame with 9″ legs. The total height will be approximately 26.5″ The other option would be the 7″ legs, making the total height a bit shorter than I planned at 24.5″
26″-10″-7.5″= 8.5″ – Choose closest leg size with is 9″
Q: Will my current mattress work with an adjustable bed frame?
A: You will need to take few moments to examine your current mattress to figure out if it is compatible with an adjustable bed frame. If your mattress is memory foam, latex, or a digital number air bed, it is probably compatible. Water beds are never compatible with adjustable beds. If you currently own a spring mattress, it is unlikely it will work with an adjustable bed frame unless it was made specifically for an adjustable bed, but here is how to find out. Feel the top edges “corners” of your spring mattress. If you can feel the firm, thick wire that runs around the top perimeter of the bed, your mattress is NOT compatible with an adjustable bed frame. If however, you feel no wire, but instead, it feels like there is a foam support rail around the perimeter, your mattress should be compatible. Of course the fastest and easiest way to be 100% sure is to call the manufacturer and ask. They should be able to answer the question quickly and easily.
