Brooklyn Made Platform Bed-Bolt Construction – How We Build Bed Frames to Last

sturdy bed bolt construction insures years of service

At Scott Jordan Furniture, we have produced thousands of beds over a period of thirty years and we know from experience that our methods are sound.  We prefer using a through bed bolt method to construct our bedsteads.  Through bed bolts are a fail-safe method of insuring a very tight mechanical connection that eliminates bed rattle,  shake, and motion transfer; ensuring generations of service.

Also, we only use standard hardware in our bed construction.  All of the components can be found at a good hardware supplier.  This avoids the troubles of specialized furniture hardware that might be difficult to replace if lost, especially years from now.

Our slats are supported by a center leg that insures that the slats will not bend and sag over time. This also provides a firm, level, foundation for the mattress.  Furthermore, our bed slats are made from sound hardwood; we use a variety of woods that are suitable to the function: oak, maple, ash, beech, cherry, according to what is currently available from our lumber supplier. In any case we select only locally raised hardwood.
