Can this frame be separated for two twin beds and then, if needed, joined to make a full bed?

answer 1
You need both pieces to create the twin and if you want a full you have to use the connection bars between the 2 pieces. Each side is about 1/2 the size of a twin matress.

No, it can't. It comes with extender bars that make the twin frame into a full frame.

No. Can't put a twin mattress on just one half. You need both just for the twin. The included connection bars are used to expand the frame for full sized configuration.

answer 5
No, The two halves can't be separated because the two halve initially make the twin frame WITHOUT extenders. To adjust it into a full you would have to pull open those two frames and add extenders which attach to one side of one frame and the another side of the other. The extenders are made of some very strong materials and latch on with ease. If you look at a picture the extenders can be seen coming down the middle horizontal.

No. The frame that you see in the picture is how the frame comes assembled for a twin bed. It is extremely supportive. To make it a full frame, you pull on each side and it widens. They send extra support clips to lock it in the full position. It is not like the old frames that are in two pieces and you can add a bar to make them larger.

There are 2 pieces that connect together and if you want the full, you have to insert the connection bars between the 2 pieces. It is a really easy assembly.

When you take the frame out of the box it will make sense. It comes out looking twin size, but there are some extender bars that will make it a regular sized full bed.

You would use both pieces. It comes with steel support bars, "heavy duty" that expand for the full mattress.

There are 2 main structures that are always used, and some connecting bars that are used if you have a full sized mattress. For the most part, you use all of it all the time.

no the set up comes with directions on how to bring in and secure the two halves of the frames for twin and how to pull out and secure the frame for a full.. No matter what it will look like a twin without half the frame sticking out.. ITS ADJUSTABLE!

No. The picture you see is for a twin bed. It is really supportive so that a boxspring is not necessary. To make it a full, you pull on each end and it widens. They supply you with additional beams that connect what looks like the two separate pieces.

Question

Is the width adjustable for an odd size mattress?

I would like to use this frame with an "antique full" width mattress of 48"

Is it possible to pull it out from the 39" narrow width to just 48" and lock it in, or is it strictly either 39" or 54"?

Thanks!

It should in the twin feature size, (only way we've used it) which is approximately 3 feet 2 inches by 6 feet 6 inches. It comes in a small easy to handle box that easily fits through a doorway and takes a couple of hand tools to assemble. Hope it works for you.

I have a room that is about the same size and I have more than enough room on all sides (I have it in the middle of the room). It is easy to put in if you already have furniture because you have to assemble the frame, but it hardly takes brain cells to put it together.

Question

Sitting on edge OK? Will it's edges bend.

I asked a similar question concerning the 8" memory foam mattress, also: Is it OK to sit on the edge of this (given it being topped by a memory foam mattress and any necessary plywood or/particle board? With most traditional economy mattresses, the thick wires bordering the springs may bend given this treatment--damaging the mattress. Really, I desire to be able to sit on the edges of my bed without incident....

So far I haven't had any issues with sitting on the bed frame edge. In fact the reason we purchased this frame is because my husband kept sitting on the edge of our bed and the box spring's edge cracked. We like this frame because the sides are thicker (ie. stronger) than the old box frame that we had. My husband works out and is a big guy at about 230 lbs.

Question

Will it fit inside a wooden bed frame

I have an antique bed frome with wooden slots. Will this metal frame fit inside my wooden frame if I remove all the slots?

Also, is this meant to be used as a temporary guest bed or with a permanent bed?

I can answer the second question. This is meant to be a permanent support frame. But it's pretty easy to put together or disassemble, so you could use it temporarily and knock it down when it wasn't needed. The box it ships in is 1/4 the size of a twin mattress, give or take, so storage space needed would be minimal.

answer 2
I suspect not, but hope you can get more answers to give you more hope.

An antique bed frame is sometimes a very tight fit for the mattress itself but to get this new frame set down in the middle of the old frame may be quite a trick. She slat support edges will take up room that the new frame will want to occupy. I know of a particular antique bed frame that I would gladly rebuild around this frame just to not have to wrestle with getting the mattress into the old antique. But the key word would be "rebuild".

No, it will not fit inside your wooden bed frame. Not recommended.

I personally use this bed as a permament bed. However, because of the easy to fold style, it definitely would make an excellent temporary guest bed.

yes! I have the 8' slumber 1 memory foam mattress and am using it with the frame... the only thing I would suggest is duct taping cardboard etc onto the base before laying the flat sheet on and then the mattress to preserve your mattress quality (not a big deal)
also if you have a very thin mattress it might not be a good idea

Yes you can. What's so good about this mattress is that no box spring is required. Just to be sure, I would put something between the frame and the memory foam mattress, seeing that it is softer than a regular mattress. I suggest a sturdy mattress pad.
