I don’t think HR foam is a good idea because something needs to support the HR foam. I think plywood is a good solution, or pegboard (as suggested above). Another option would be to take out your current thin slats and replace them with a bunkie board.

As for your DIY build — you may want to consider doing split firmness with a softer side for your wife. You didn’t mention her weight, but if she’s a side sleeper and significantly lighter than you, I think the medium talalay would be too firm.

Also with the new mattresses I highly recommend bunkie boards and not just box springs. If you use your current frame drop something like this in it. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B072PC9SW7/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_9CH7CK8X516MJRGTMW1S Even if you buy box springs you’ll notice a difference using bunkie boards.

I think I have all but ruled out Bunkie Boards cause with them you kind of run into the same issue with making sure the slat spacing isn’t too wide, as well the durability issues I have had with other bed frames.

So I find myself leaning towards either the plywood board\boards or pegboard laying on top of the slats. I know the plywood would be cut to size so the fit wouldn’t be an issue and durability shouldn’t be a problem the main concern would be the air flow but that could be addressed by adding holes to it. Now with the pegboard the fit and air flow shouldn’t be issue, the concern lies with the durability but would using multiple sheets of it placed on top of each aid with the durability? Luckily with my current platform bed frame the slats are seated in brackets attached to the side rails which leaves a nice lip between the slats and the top of the rails so whatever I add to provide a more solid base shouldn’t mess the elevation or anything but instead sit nice and secure on top of the existing slats.

Would either of those two solutions work and which would you go with?

I am also considering this as an option if it fits in my frames inside measurements.
