  • Patent number: 7363664
    Abstract: A bed frame comprising T shaped side rails provide support for a box spring and mattress. A leg assembly is affixed to the bed frame and is affixed to the side rail and to the cross rails for better strength of connection. The use of T-shaped side rails provides more resistance to twisting and bowing and thereby more resistant to damage a leg or other structural component of the bed frame from moving the bed frame across the floor. The use of the T-shape cross section side rails enables the overall bed frame to support more weight with less deflection than the convention L-shaped side rails. There are also headboard and footboard brackets that take advantage of the greater height of the vertical flange of the side rail to have affixation means, such as rivets, that are further spaced apart to provide a more rigid connection between the brackets and the side rails.

  • Patent number: 6637052
    Abstract: The wooden bed frame shown in the figures is designed to reduce the effect of the house dust mite upon a sleeper allergic to such mites. The bed incorporates a number of features each of which contribute to reduce asthma attacks for sleepers sensitive to the house dust mite. The bed frame includes a footboard (2) and a headboard (1) outwardly inclined at an angle of between 5° and 25°, preferably at 15°, to the vertical. The headboard (1) and footboard (2), both extend beyond the width of an air mattress (not shown) lying between stringers (3 and 4) to ensure good circumjacent air circulation even when located against a wall. The mattress is supported on slats (6) mounted between the stringers (3 and 4). In use the air mattress may be covered by a quilted cotton material that is readily washed and dried so that it does not act as a natural host for house dust mites.
