I was going to do it, but have some second thoughts of how 6" foam is going to perform over these slats and could it be pushed between the slats too much? I see that these slats are used with thicker mattresses at Ikea usually. Maybe I should ask in the place where I bought the foam from.. but really I'd rather hear it from someone who did such setup and had real world experience with it.
Slats are 2" wide and about 2-1/2" apart in an OEM nominal setup, but I can place them as close as 2-1/8" apart so I can still make expandable base like in the photo.
Thanks for all your input.

It is a 4" urethane foam plus 2" memory foam top, perhaps a medium dense mattress from Jysk, queen size that I will cut to make a folding sofa/bed. I think I will go for it and if I feel that any unneeded sagging, I am thinking that I can add some dense foam/mat layer to the bottom of mattress.
Will let you know how this goes. Thanks again for your input.
