Zinus' low profile 5'' box spring is perfect for those that want a lower, more streamlined sleeping surface. From the outside, it looks very similar to an older, more traditional box spring with coils and wood framing. However, this box spring's insides are made of sturdy steel that is perfect for newer mattresses that prefer a firm foundation.

Additional Zinus Low Profile Box Spring Information


Setup with the Zinus 5'' Low Profile Box Spring is a bit more intensive than their other box spring. The assembly is straightfoward and reviewers say it is very easy. You must bolt the metal pieces to one another to create the box spring (with included allen wrench and then stretch the fabric cover over the metal frame. All in all, the process takes between 10 - 20 minutes and only requires one person.

Quality & Durability

This box spring holds up to 500lbs (excluding the weight of the mattress), which should be ok for most couples. The metal is quite sturdy though there was one reviewer that mentioned a dent on delivery.


This box spring should be noise free as the fabric wraps around common rubbing spots.

What Mattresses are it Good For?

This should be a good option for most mattresses. The slat spacing is 4.2'' so make sure that the mattress that you are purchasing doesn't have a more stringent requirement on spacing.

Smart Product

Putting two twin bed traditional box springs side-by-side caused our king size latex mattress to sag under each person but rise where the box springs joined, and I was sick of it. I thought I would have to buy a new platform bed to get the even support I wanted. I noticed this product and decided to try it, especially since the return policy made it easy if it didn't work out.

The construction process was easy, right up to putting on the cover. The instructions were all visual—nothing written—so I mixed up the orientation of the cover and initially thought I'd gotten one that was too short to fit. It wasn't until I totally failed at stretching it with all my strength that I realized I may need to rotate it and sure enough that worked. I felt a little dumb but then again the instructions should have made it completely obvious.

I'm actually really surprised at how good our sleep has been. No bowing, creaking, or ridging. Way way better than the box springs and now I don't have to buy a new bed immediately. Well worth the cost.
