It was soon discovered though that these frames were not such a bargain that they appeared to be. The first problem with black metal frames is the round metal bars that make up the seat and back sections of these frames. Where as wood futon frames are using flat slats, black metal frames have hollow round bars. Thinner mattresses would slide through the gaps between the round bars. On wood futons this was never a problem.
A lighter futon bed mattress is a good choice as long as it gives the comfort you want. If youre planning on using your futon mainly as a bed then a heavier futon mattress is usually going to be best option. Firmness is a measurement of the feel or give of the mattress when used as a sleeping or sitting surface. This quality is what people define as comfortable. Rigidity is the ability of the futon bed mattress to retain its shape along its edge when being used as a bed or sofa.
The other issue with the hollow bars is that if enough weight was placed on a spot they would begin to bend. The issue became so bad that a 90 day warranty was put in place by most manufacturers of these frames. Another issue the black metal frames suffered from were bending stretcher bars or rails. Again the hollow nature of these strecther rails presented issues with breakage and bending.
Dont forget those rural areas, where going to the furniture store is sometimes a days drive. So, you like what youve heard so far? Well, it gets even better. The majority of frames, mattresses and covers that I sell are made in the USA. A claim that those mega marts wont even try to make. I strive to sell as much product thats made in the USA as possible. I live here, and want to promote American made products.
