This is often the case when a delivery involves going through tight doorways, or, up narrow staircases (especially with turns). All king size mattresses use split box springs. Queen size box springs are available in two style: standard (1-piece), and, split (2-piece) box springs. Split queen box springs are two 30 inch X 80 inch boxes that equal the size of one, standard queen foundation/box spring.
