Leggett & Platt Introduces Folding Box Spring

Furniture World News on

Leggett & Platt announced that they have developed an upholstered, folding box spring that has the following features: -takes one third the space to inventory and warehouse – designed to allow bedding manufacturers and retailers to make better use of costly warehouse space -doubles the load that fits into one distribution truck, reducing handling and shipping expense -sized and pre-boxed to ship air freight/UPS to accommodate electronic retail customers -speeds home delivery and set up with carry-in ease The interior of the box spring is comprised of a patented wire grid design stapled to wood slats that, when fully extended, provides as much support and is as sturdy a foundation as a conventionally built box spring. The cover is a high end stretch knit stretchable ticking that conforms to the box spring shape, and will coordinate well with most any mattress ticking. The new design has been tested, and has passed all standard ASTM testing, and is now in rollout mode, according to Mark Quinn, Leggett Bedding Group Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Leggett is very focused on bringing innovative product to the marketplace. Making the best use of space is an issue for almost everyone in the bedding industry – that’s just one reason why Semi-Fold has been received so well by all our customers.” Leggett & Platt is a Fortune 500 diversified manufacturer that conceives, designs and produces a broad variety of engineered components and products that can be found in virtually every home, office, retail store and automobile.
