Metal beds vocabulary and information
What are Bed Rails?
By using the term “bed rails”, we refer to the side rails of your bed. Most of our bed rails are made of metal but we also provide some models with wood. The bed rails need a headboard and footboard to support your mattress and box spring.
What is a iron bed frame ?
By using the term bed frame, we refer to the “base” that suppots the mattress. A bed frame usually needs a headboard or footboard. Our beds provide all the pre-mentioned elements. A bed frame or bedstead is the part of a bed used to position the mattress and base (foundation). It may include means of supporting a canopy above. Bed frames are typically made of wood or metal. A bed frame includes head, foot, and side rails.
It may also include slats to support the mattress, in which case a separate base is not necessary, as in a platform bed. Most double (full) sized beds, along with all queen and king size beds, require some type of center support rail, typically also with extra feet extending down to the floor. The term “bed frame” was first used in 1805-1815.
Are metal beds safe?
Metal bed frames can actually increase your exposure to electrical pollution or electromagnetic fields (EMF). This is the reason why we de-magnitize all of our metal beds during the production of our beds. All the metal furniture we manufacture is demagnetized by the method of raising the temperature of the metal above the Curie Temperature of 770 C. As a result, all of our beds are demagnetized and completely safe for your health.
Are iron beds strong?

Do bed bugs hide in a iron bed frame?
Because of the cool nature of metal, bed bugs are far less likely to take up residence in metal bed frames than they are in wooden bed frames.
How was the iron bed frame invented?
Iron beds were produced in the 17th century Italy to deal with infestation by bed bugs and moths. An iron cradle has been dated to 1620-1640. From the beginnig of their production in the 1850s until World War I, iron beds were handmade.
The production included hand pouring and polishing intricately detailed casting and finishing made on hand. In the many small foundries of the time where a handful of employees worked.
It could take days to produce a single bed. After the end of World War I, the mass-production processes used for wartime affected the iron industry as well. The handmade quality gave way to cost-effective mass production.
