Split Queen Box Springs

In addition to making moving easier and creating a more sturdy sleep system, there are several other reasons why a split queen foundation or split box spring makes good, practical sense.

Since the early Twentieth Century, mattresses have gotten larger. A standard king size bed measures seventy six inches by eighty inches, the equivalent of forty two square feet. That really is a lot of bed, especially when it comes time to move it. A standard mattress, even a king size mattress, will allow a certain amount of 'give' when going through doorways, around corners and up a set of stairs. Split queen foundations offer a practical solution to several problems.

A solid box spring or other type of foundation has no such flexibility. In order to move a full size, queen size or king size king size bed through the average house or apartment, the box spring or foundation is split into two pieces. Splitting the foundation makes moving the bed much easier. Using a split box spring or split foundation has another very important advantage. The point at which the box springs meet forms a very strong center support point for the mattress.

Mattress foundations such as traditional box springs have been around since the late eighteen hundreds. A sturdy box spring or other type of foundation is essential to supporting the mattress. Even the best mattress will not function well without on an inadequate foundation. In today's world of standardized bedding sizes, the use of split foundations has become fairly common.
