Broken Bed Slats- Ranger


Recommended Posts


New Member


Replaced a broken bed slat recently, slats generally look weak. I have therefore modified arrangements by using a piece of 5mm plywood (610mm wide x 1350 long).

When bed is in use the plywood is overlaid onto the slats to evenly distribute the load.

When not required the board is neatly stored out of sight under the seat cushion.

To allow air flow and reduce condensation I have drilled 22mm holes at 100mm centres throughout the boards surface. Seems a great success.

Idea may be helpful to others.

You could have avoided having to drill the holes by using a sheet of pegboard instead of the plywood, still a great idea though.

You can buy pre cut ply wood for DIY radiator covers that has been cut out with various patterns. It looks better than pegboard (appreciate its's out of sight anyway) but I suspect that it's a bit lighter aswell. Not too expensive but costs more than pegboard. Worth considering?
