Heavier people may need a mattress built to support larger weights for longer periods. But did you know that you might also need a special bed frame to protect and sustain your mattress? A heavy-duty metal bed frame is an excellent option for people needing reliable mattress support. Here’s how to tell if you need a heavy-duty metal bed and the best options on the market.

When To Shop For The Sturdiest Bed Frames

Most standard mattresses can support about 250 pounds per side of the bed. If you or your partner weighs more, the mattress may deform and sag faster than under a lighter sleeper. Fortunately, there are many options for mattresses designed to support higher weight loads for the entire span of their warranty. However, if you’re purchasing a bed built for heavier sleepers, you’ll also need a frame that protects and supports your mattress for years to come. 

Purchasing the right bed frame nips several problems in the bud. A quality metal bed frame prevents squeaking, shifting, and sliding in the middle of the night, leading to a better night’s sleep. Some mattresses, such as a TempurPedic, require the correct type of bed frame to provide adequate support for the mattress (and might even void the warranty if the wrong kind of frame is used). A heavy-duty metal bed frame is a great option for all sleepers, but it is essential for heavier people who need to ensure their mattress doesn’t sag.
