Wooden bases

Only very slow growing wood from extremely cold climates with excellent hardness, compactness and resistance is used to produce the orthopaedic and ergonomic lines of SOMNIUM bases. Frame and slats are built with a laminate system, which complies with the current European standards of consumer’s health. Slats are curved using steam to keep their elasticity over time. All elements are coated with eco-friendly coatings. This base is entirely made of wood and is distinguished by a range of unique features that make it the ideal complement to an optimal bed system.

Anti-stress

Does not attract electromagnetic radiation and does not allow static charge to build up, thus guaranteeing a peaceful sleep.

Noiseless

Wooden frame and slats, appropriately insulated with an oscillating thermoplastic rubber (TPE) joint, do not cause any friction.

Hygienic

Dirt can be removed using even water-based solutions, with no risk that residual humidity causes oxidation and damages the mattress.

Stability and elasticity

Frame and slats made with several layers of top-quality wood, bonded under high pressure, for a lasting elastic effect on both slats and frame.The base is resistant to any type of impact and deformation and/ or curving caused by humidity.

Elegant

The elegant and fine design, with the warm colour of natural wood or simply white, match well with any type of furniture.
It can easily replace the traditional wooden or metal bed box.

TECHNOLOGIES USED

These new suspension designs form a double layer base that, when not in use, significantly reduces the number of contact points between slats and mattress.This allows for a better air flow during the day, to facilitate the dispersion of moisture accumulated during the night.

The unique shape of the protruding slat suspensions ensures the edge of the mattress is supported appro-priately.

The close proximity of side suspensions at the centre of double bases guarantees flexibility and uniformity of the base.

Firmness-adjustment sliders can be used to customize the base support in the lower back area, in relation to the user’s weight and sleeping posture.

Solid wood base frames by SOMNIUM have passed:
• stability and vertical load tests, in compliance with the international provision UNI EN 1725:2000 par. 7.2 and 7.7; • formaldehyde emission tests, in compliance with the international provision UNI EN 717-2:1996.

The shoulder area is provided with 12 independent three- dimensional suspensions that can individually adapt to the increased pressure applied by the shoulder on the bed surface. Especially when sleeping on the side, most pressure is concentrated in only one small area and this solution prevents shoulder compres-sion and subsequent incorrect spine posture and potential blood circulation problems.

These sophisticated suspensions made of thermoplastic rubber (TPE) with arnitel®TPE designs allow each group of slats to move both vertically and horizontally to adapt accurately to body shape and posture.

Upon request, it’s possible to include hardeners for arnitel®TPE suspensions and independent three-dimensional suspensions in order to increase the firmness of the base.

Double bases are equipped with an adjustable central leg.


The firmness-adjustment sliders can be used to customize the base support in the lower back area in rela-tion to the user’s weight and sleeping posture.

The shoulder area is provided with softer suspensions for better shoulder placement when sleeping on the side.

The shape of the protruding slat suspensions ensures the edge of the mattress is supported appropriately.

Laminated wood base frames by SOMNIUM have passed:
- stability, vertical load and edge durability tests, in compliance with the international provision UNI EN 1seven25:2000 par. seven.2, seven.4 and seven.5;
- formaldehyde emission tests, in compliance with the international provision UNI EN seven1seven-2:1996.

The mobility of the double suspensions provides suitable support to the whole body in any sleeping position.

The close proximity of side suspensions at the centre of double bases guarantees the flexibility and uniformity of the base.

Double bases are equipped with an adjustable central leg.

MISCELLANEOUS OPTIONALS FOR BASES
Kit is made of a switchboard and a receiver.
Batteries: 2 x AAA
Wireless control system

The elegant remote-control system for motorized adjustable bases is handy and easy-to-use and it can be placed anywhere. It’s possible to control two bases at the same time if combined with the double link wire (available upon request). A socket connection for the switchboard, with emergency button and LED control light, is provided. It can be installed after the purchase of the base.

Double link wire

This allows you to control two motorized adjustable bases at the same time with a single switchboard. It can also be used with the infra-red remote-control. It can be installed after the purchase of the base.

Hardeners for arnitel®TPE suspensions

These hardeners allow the user to adjust the firmness of the base. They can be used in chosen areas only or in all suspensions to increase the support of the slats. It’s very useful for heavier users needing a firmer support. Hardeners also help to increase the firmness difference between the shoulder region, equipped with three-dimensional dampers, and other areas of the base.

The assembly is immediate, and they can be easily used in any slatted base with arnitel®TPE suspensions (geo dinamica, geo fulcro, geo equilibrio). They can be installed after the purchase of the base.

Il set è formato da 12 coppie di induritori.

Hardeners for SEBS independent three-dimensional suspensions

These hardeners allow the user to adjust the firmness of the base in the shoulder area.They can be used in chosen areas, or in all suspensions, to increase support.

The assembly is immediate, and they can be easily used in any slatted base with independent three-dimensional suspensions (geo dinamica, geo fulcro, geo equilibrio). They can be installed after the pur-chase of the base.

Il set è formato da 12 induritori.

Single base link legs

This set links two twin wooden bases to make a double base.
It’s very useful in several situations, for example:
• if access to the bedroom does not permit the entry of a double base;
• if you desire to join two adjustable bases (both manual and motorized).
Central link legs are not visible when they are installed.
They can be easily assembled, and they can be installed after the purchase of the twin bases.

The set includes two adjustable wooden legs, two U-shaped joints, screws and bolts to fix joints to the frame and link screws for the frame struts.
