Constructed of 1-1/2"x16 gauge square tubing for the bed ends and 2"x1" rectangular 16 gauge (.083 wall thickness) steel tubing for the sides. The frame is strengthened with two cross braces of 1'' square steel tubing (14 gauge). Two specially designed hook plates of 5/32" thickness are robotically MIG welded to each section. These allow for the optional insertion of a 1/4" bolt which positively locks the spring frame to the stud brackets.
After each component is processed to exacting tolerances, which includes cutting and perforating, they are accurately aligned and finish welded using state-of-the-art robotics to ensure total unitized frame integrity every time. This unique all-tubular design greatly enhances overall strength and safety, creating a new, unmatched level of excellence.

The spring surface is made up of 15 rows of 9-gauge sinuous spring wire with "Z" hooks on each end. There are five rows of 12-gauge connecting links between each row of sinuous springs for a total of seventy links. There are five 12-gauge helical springs, with 16 turns and a 3/4" diameter, on each spring frame. All spring components are inserted inside the tubular frame leaving it both tamper-proof and free of sharp edges.
