Our bases are robustly engineered from kiln-dried timbers and are built in-factory by our specialised team. We offer choice of legs and side border fabric. Border fabrics are offered in jacquard, knit, linen or suede fabrics that obviates the need for a base frill and resists scuff marks and dirt.
Four or six legs, base heights ranging from 20cm to 38cm depending on model and customer specification.
Our sprung or foam mattresses are crafted using modern techniques and materials by our skilled teams. We use internationally recognized spring systems with innovative foam and spring combinations (such as latex or memory foam and pocket zone springs) that provide a dynamic response to natural body movement and reacts intelligently to individual body contours.
With over twenty five standard models to chose from, we are able to provide an appropriate bed for our clients needs, be it to fill a dormitory or to grace the bedroom of the most discerning customer. We are of course receptive to the individual needs of our clients and that has led to the development of exclusive and innovative lines of beds to satisfy their specific market demands.
Ranges include standard, Euro top, pillow top, no turn, all with varying specifications of foam laminated cores, foam sheets, springs and fabric to suit all markets and customer requirements.
With respect to manufacturing inputs and outputs, our choice of suppliers is driven by the primary consideration of quality, consistency of supply and service. Our materials and services therefore represent some of the most respected and well known suppliers in the industry, with SABS and global standards of quality and product.
