The Berkeley Ergonomics standard slat base is the perfect economical solution when the budget doesn't allow for the investment in a suspension foundation. Made from Canadian timber and wrapped in organic cotton and Plein-Air French wool, this foundation meets the stringent California 16 CFR 1633 flame retardancy requirement without any chemical treatments. Slatted wood ensures proper air circulation, which is especially important for foam mattresses.
In addition to budgetary requirements, this foundation is also our recommended base option beneath Tempur-Pedic mattresses or similar memory foam and polyurethane foam mattresses or bed-in-a-box mattresses. The construction of our slat foundation is truly superior to the standard boxsprings found under mass-produced brand mattresses.
Also available in an extra-low profile version for platform-style beds. Included with the purchase of all TEAM 7 European Platform Beds.

General Availability Advice
The Mattress & Sleep Company is a family owned and operated Canadian retailer. We specialize in high-quality bedding, bath and mattresses from Canada, Europe and the USA. Our vast selection makes it impossible to stock everything. For this reason, our website does not offer real-time inventory availability as many of our products are made to order.
Please read the availability details above as we do make an effort to draw attention to products which are typically in stock in our Calgary, Edmonton and Sherwood Park stores and warehouses.
