Bed Rails

Bed Rails

Side rails are solid hardwood. All Copeland furniture bed rails are fastened with a simple to use but extremely durable system designed keep the joint firm and rigid for the life of the product. Here's how it works:

  • A headless, threaded machine bolt is screwed into the headboard
  • Wooden dowel pegs align the bed rail with the headboard or footboard
  • This forces the bed rail into proper orientation and prevents any future twisting.
  • The parts are joined together with a specialized contoured washer and hex nut using the supplied open-end wrench

Bed Slats and Platforms

Berkeley beds utilize three center support legs for additional mattress support. Mattress support comes in one of the following forms depending on the wood selected:

T Slat


A T-Slat is a 3" plywood slat reinforced by a solid hardwood spine. Viewed from the side, the parts form the shape of a T, hence the name. T-Slats always come in packages of three and are standard on beds requiring box spring and mattress.

Platform Kits are similar to T-Slats in that they consist of a plywood horizontal element reinforced by a solid wood spine. However they differ in that they are much wider and are intended to provide the direct support for the mattress. Platform Kits come in sets of six platforms which are 10" wide, distributed the length of the bed to provide adequate support for a mattress alone. They are standard on all Cherry beds.
