I'm going to say no. It calls for coil spring matresses only. When you put the beds together they have slats that hold up the matress. I know you could get some plywood to go down in place of a bunky board on top of the slats and it would only cost an extra maybe 15 dollars.

I just got off the phone with customer service and asked them about getting more slats for my beds (they come with 7 but I asked for 8 more total) and the customer service rep said to make sure I have a coil spring mattress and not foam which I do. I do NOT think memory foam would be safe with these beds. If you do not buy bunkie boards then the foam would be seeping out from between the slats under the bed. I would NOT use a foam mattress (and my kids are both only 40lbs!)

My mattresses are 39x75 and they fit perfectly. There is a little room on the edges, but it is supposed to fit standard twin mattresses, and that is what we have.

Question

What kind of hardware is used to hold the two twins together?

I was thinking about possibly adding some inches between the two twin beds to add space between the bottom and top bunk (so I can sit and read my kids a book before bed). I was curious as to what kind of hardware was used to join the two beds together.

It's just plain wood dowels at the posts but the ladder is attached to both beds so you might have to extend that too.

It is just a normal twin size. there is such a thing as an xl twin but those are usually in college dorm rooms. it will not fit a crib mattress. Hope this helps.

Most twins are one size but they do make an extra long twin mattress, usually used only in dorm rooms. This bed takes a standard sized twin.

Question

Can it be different heights as twin beds?

From the picture, it looks like the top bunk mattress frame is screwed higher onto the head and foot than the bottom bunk is. Can this bed be made into twins of different heights so an L-shape can be made with the feet end of one bed going under the other bed? Can one bed be made higher than the other? What is the highest and lowest heights these beds can be?

Yes! When you separate the beds, you have to switch a couple of pieces on each bed. Then it will make it to where the mattress is lower to the floor and the head board is taller. It will explain how to do this in the instructions.
