Old slat gap = 3 1/4 - 3 1/2 NEW slat gap under 3" inches! Gap can vary a bit depending on where the slats are sourced but rest assured it's more than adequate for any type of foam mattress.
If your wood foundation is going to permanently installed then we suggest securing the loose fitting slats with wood screws as pictured below (1 1/4" drywall screws work great). It's not necessary because the weight of the mattress keeps everything in place but it will provide a slightly more stable foundation. This is not advised if you move often.

Assembling the wood foundation is simple
Step 1 is connecting the side rails. Lay the side rails and one end beam on the floor. Line-up both side rails with the channels on the end beam. Insert the bolts through the hols on both corners of the end beam and tighten.
Step 2 is placing the center rail through the middle of the end beam. (There are no bolts necessary to secure this rail to the end beam.) Then insert two bolts through the holes found on both outside corners of the end beam and tighten.
Step 3 is positioning the slats. Simply place the roll of slats on the top of the wooden structure at one end. Set the first slat into the pegs on each side and unroll the slats across the top of the foundation. Set the last slat into the other end pegs. Spacer webbing should be up.(You may have to pull tight to get the slats snug).
Step 4, the final step, is putting the cover on the foundation. Slip the cover over the corner edges of the foundation with the fabric out. Tuck the excess under or use hand stapler to secure to wood.
It's that simple!
