5. Bed Sizes
5.1. There are no lawful guidelines for sizes of beds that have to be used. The size of the product is used for descriptive purposes but there is no guarantee that it will fit across two different suppliers. For example, a double mattress from one manufacturer may differ in size of the base from another manufacturer. This may predominately be down to the difference between Metric, Imperial and European dimensions.
5.2 Mattresses are made with many individual components such as springs, casing and fillings. It is therefore necessary to allow a tolerance to the width and length of your mattresses, at a guide of an allowance of +/- 1 inch (2.54cm).
