Can I use a 100% Dunlop latex mattress on a daybed with linked springs? Or would it be better to remove the springs and use slats or something else? This is a heavy solid built Victorian style metal daybed frame purchased in the 1980s. It is not thin metal like seen on many sold nowadays.

Hi Betsy -- Thanks for your question. I assume you're talking about a grid-like pattern of horizontal springs. If so, I definitely wouldn't recommend putting an all-latex mattress on top of that. The springs will just dig into the bottom of the latex and in the areas in between the springs, the latex will most likely squeeze through. Ultimately, this won't provide great support and will probably lead to permanent indents in the latex. With an all-latex mattress, the ideal would be to replace the springs with some sort of solid platform that is fastened onto the frame -- eg, plywood that rests on the frame and is also screwed on somehow to prevent it from bending over time. This would give the mattress a nice solid foundation on which to rest. Assuming it's a twin size, I would think that this solution would be adequate from a support standpoint to hold both the mattress and the person(s) on top.

I hope that's helpful.
