Frame Timber

Macrocarpa timber has a finer grain than pine. Each beam is unique, often showing swirls and compression ripples. The fine grade timber we order is always free from knot voids, but occasionally we see concentric grain. Let us know if you have a grain preference.

Pine has a broad grain with natural contrast across the yearly growth rings. We offer a natural finish, or a coloured java or rimu finish.


Fixed-slats, also known as straight or flat slats, are maintenance-free and suit all our latex mattresses and futons perfectly. We make them out of pine for its strong span strength. We usually recommend fixed-slats.

Flexi-slats give latex and sunflower mattresses more 'bounce', and a bit more posture contouring, especially in thin or very soft mattresses. Every 5 years the flexi-slats positioned mid bed should be repositioned to the top, and the top slats moved to the bottom, and the bottom slats moved to the middle. This rotation maintains their springiness and evenness over time. They should last well over 10 years before they flatten out and need replaced.

Please use the contact form if you would like to know more about tension slats. These are special adjustable flexi-slats that are individually configurable from soft to firm. We're not physiotherapists, but being able to localise the softness or 'give' of selected slats is sometimes – depending on many aspects not least the mattress – more comfortable for people with broad shoulders or hips, or those with joint pain in a shoulder or pelvis.

Slats can be recessed by as much as 110cm to lower your mattress height within the frame. Please contact us for more information this customisation.


Height Adjustable with three settings. Contact us for headboard options.


Can be flat-packed. Solid steel slot-together frame setup. The headboard has two bolts that can be positioned low, middle or high to adjust height. Slats require a phillips screwdriver: Four screws hold the slat belt tight from head to foot.
