Whisper Sleep bed foundation is an innovative design made from recyclable USA-made composite connectors and renewable North American lumber. It provides an excellent base for any mattress type: hybrid, innerspring, memory foam, latex or air. Assembly is simple with the included easy-to-follow instructions. The Euro-style frame design adds stability and resists sag. Top slats positioned from head to foot instead of side to side minimize mattress slippage. The composite connectors reduce squeaks and annoying noise often experienced with all-metal or all-wood foundations. The foundation is shipped by UPS in a single box, which is especially helpful in apartments or in residences with tight staircases or narrow hallways where moving a set-up foundation is difficult or unmanageable. It is ideal for student housing where beds are moved and re-positioned often, as it can easily be disassembled for the next move. Stratiform’s composite connector parts provide a new solution to metal or semi-metal foundations that can become bowed over time, are unwieldy to move due to their weight and size, and can create squeaky noise.
