Froli Sleep System Lifesaver!!!

Just wanted to give a product review for the Froli Sleep system, the wife and I both have back issues hers more severe, long story short. In 10 years, thousands of $$ spent on different beds, from sleep number to 12" memory foam and still couldn't get a good nights sleep or awake without back pain. After moving aboard we purchased the Froli Sleep system and after a few weeks of getting used to it under our 5" foam mattress, We can honestly say our backs have never felt better!!!
Great easy to use product and it works!
Thank you Froli!!!!

I've had Froli aboard the past 3 boats and they transform a camping experience into a sleeping experience.

Re: Froli Sleep System Lifesaver!!!

I'm curious about this. I have some pretty thin foam in my v berth now. I don't like the idea of getting all new foam because of the expense and the environmental and health impacts. Do you think the froli system could work with our existing foam? I want to say it is about 3 inched thick...

Ours isnt much thicker. It should work great. Took about 2 weeks to really get used to it now we sleep like the dead. Took about 30 min for the wife to assemble.and was less than a $1000. Custom mattress. We tried two types of memory foam etc and nothing was even close.

Re: Froli Sleep System Lifesaver!!!

I'll check it out. Do just have standard 5" foam or some type of hi grade stuff. I have my cushion person contracted and she is going to take all the measurements in early December.

Re: Froli Sleep System Lifesaver!!!

I checked out their site but can't tell if this is something you lay out underneath the cushions or if you can lay them inside the cushions with the foam?

It would seem like if the former, having a matrix of springs laying under the cushions would make accessing the lockers underneath more difficult.

It does. We have had the system for about 5 years. We recently ended up taking out their track system and just screwing in the springs to the locker top boards directly. This made it easier and would have saved us bucks on their tracking system to begin with.

Re: Froli Sleep System Lifesaver!!!

I saw them at Annapolis. I've been curious about them. I have back issues too. Thanks for the info. I might take a closer look another time.

Re: Froli Sleep System Lifesaver!!!

We've found a less expensive system from Ikea that works great for us. I tried the Froli and actually find the Ikea support more "bed like".

The wooden slats are easily cut to the right length to fit the shape of your berth. They then slip into the nifty soft plastic endcaps that keep everything straight. We don't use the lower wooden frame but just sit the vinyl strips on the berth top. You can drive a few screws through them if there's problem with sliding.

The whole thing rolls up to get access to under berth hatches. We also cut the vinyl strips so that a middle six slat section lifts out to access the most frequently used hatch location.

Best of all is that you can adjust the firmness of the slats for different parts of you body weight.

Re: Froli Sleep System Lifesaver!!!

I can't give a personal account other than to say that I knew we'd need something from the day we bought our boat, and that the Froli name (and, curiously, the IKEA "alternative) keeps cropping up as a good choice for bedding.
