Does the slat base 120x200 cm suit me?

The slat base 120x200 cm is the ideal choice for a single bed with a width of 120 cm. If you want to sleep comfortably and enjoy a pleasant lying feeling, you will get reliable support in your bedroom with this slat base. Due to its handy dimensions, it is perfectly suited for small bedrooms. At the same time, the 120 cm wide and 200 cm long version provides you with a sufficiently large lying surface, so that you can turn around freely while sleeping – an immense advantage that should not be underestimated, since we change our sleeping position several times every night.  

But not only single households are well served with the slat base 120x200 or the 120x200 cm bed size. It is also suitable for a guest bed and will make your visitors' stay in your home more enjoyable. If you regularly expect several visitors, a slat base with a width of 140 cm and a length of 200 cm can turn out to be an even better choice. With this size, two people can sleep comfortably in the bed without sacrificing freedom of movement. 

How does a slat base 120x200 provide more comfort in a single bed?

With the slat base 120x200 you create the perfect basis for a comfortable sleeping system. Even though more attention is commonly paid to the mattress, it is worth taking a close look at the slat base when buying your bed system. Even the most luxurious mattress cannot fully develop its comfort properties if it is not supported by a suitable slat base. For a balanced sleeping experience, it is therefore important to consider the mattress and slat base as a single unit. If you carefully coordinate both, your slat base 120x200 cm can help you achieve a pleasant, ergonomic lying position. You can let yourself go and fully concentrate on deep relaxation. You are guaranteed to be on the safe side if you buy both products from the same manufacturer. Swissflex offers point-elastic mattresses and high-quality slat bases, which perfectly match each other, so that you can experience the feeling of lying on clouds.

What should I look for in a slat base 120x200?

The slat base 120x200 cm comes in different versions. From simple roll-up slats to sophisticated frames with high-quality wooden slats or an adaptable disc slat base, the choice is huge. In any case, the most important thing is your sleep health: after all, a good slat base should offer you maximum comfort so that you can enjoy a good night's sleep. However, there are a few aspects that you should consider before buying a new slat base: 


Getting up in the morning without back pain and tension - who doesn't want that? That's exactly why you shouldn't compromise on the quality of your slat base. The base contributes to the ergonomic positioning of your spine and therefore to your health. You should therefore always choose a good quality product. The quality of the slat base starts with its slats: high-quality models use a large number of flexible slats, for example. 

If you choose a slat base made by Swissflex, you can rely on careful workmanship and top materials that will provide you with long-lasting comfort. We offer different options in 120 cm width and 200 cm length, so you have a free choice of slat type without compromising on quality. 

Load capacity

You should make sure that the slat base is strong enough, especially if you have a higher body weight. Its slats must provide you with sufficient support so that your spine can recover optimally during sleep. The load capacity of the slats is often designed for a specific weight class. 

Zoned slat base

When looking for the right product, you can, for example, look for a model with special zones to increase your sleeping comfort. Are you a side sleeper or do you often suffer from back pain? Then a model with a special shoulder comfort zone is perfect for you. More flexible slats give your shoulders enough space to sink deeper down so that you can adopt a relaxing lying position.

Assembly type

The slat base 120x200 is available from specialist retailers in versions on feet or as an insert. This allows you to either use your new slat base as a free-standing bed or combine it with a frame that is assembled separately. 


In addition to different reclining zones, the slat base in 120 cm width and 200 cm length scores points with different adjustment options. In any case, a so-called middle zone reinforcement is helpful. The zone in the middle of the mattress base is reinforced by double slats in a slatted frame with this added comfort. The special feature: The flexibility of the slats can be adjusted at this point - usually using a so-called O-slider. Thanks to this feature, you can adjust the adaptability of your slat base exactly to your preferred sleeping position so that you benefit from ergonomic spinal support in your bed. 

If you are looking for an extra dose of comfort, have difficulty getting up or simply enjoy watching TV in bed, you should consider a slat base with adjustable foot and head sections. This allows you to bring the lying surface into an upright sitting position or literally put your feet up. You can find both manual and electric slat bases in stores. With the latter, a small motor ensures that you can easily adjust the position of the slat base in the head or leg area at the touch of a button. That way, you can make yourself really comfortable with a slat base that has adjustable head and foot sections.
