Unique Selling Point (USP)
Like all bed frames, even Hercules is made from heavy duty steel. It is all metal construction with no wooden slats employed, making it is remarkably sturdy.
No. of legs
The queen and king size frame design is unique in Classic Brands Hercules bed frame. It’s like two twin sized beds are put together and there are two pairs of middle legs. Hence, the total leg count stands at 12. This only adds to enhanced stability.
If it were to be a regular design then the frame would have had just 9 legs, with 3 legs in the middle section.
Another flexibility being that the frame is foldable in the middle. It makes it easy to pack and store when not needed, consumes less space.
Significant advantage being that if you just need a single frame, just unscrew the connection between the two frames, fold and store the other and continue with single twin sized frame.
Metal frame with 12 leg construction, all contribute to sustain weights up to 4000 lbs. This is more than the mandatory capacity to hold weights of two persons.
Even when you use the two frames separately as individual twin sized frames, each should again support 2000 lbs weight.
The design removes the need to have additional box springs or foundations.
One another issue with box springs and bed frames going together is that both have to be new. Old or worn out box springs are not advised to be used along with new bed frames and mattresses.
Olee Sleep T-3000 bed frames are, perhaps, the only ones that can be used both with and without box springs.
Headboard and Footboard Compatibility
Although Hercules bed frames do not come with slots to attach headboards or footboards, but it is still compatible and the necessary brackets to attach them are sold separately.
Hercules bed frames are compatible with all types of mattresses. Memory foam, Tempurpedic, latex or spring mattresses, all can be placed directly on the frame itself.
While majority of bed frames come with just horizontal slats, Hercules frames also have thin vertical slats that run from top to bottom.
This meticulous design precisely removes the need to have flat boards that are otherwise most necessary especially when you have Tempurpedic mattresses.
Height and Under the Bed Storage Space
This version of Hercules bed frame from Classic Brands is 14 inches tall and the under the bed storage space is precisely 13 inches.
This space is standard with most bed frames in the market.
