Slats to build storage bed

I'm looking to build a storage bed and looking for a place to get some parts. The type of storage bed I'm building are the ones with the hydraulic lift and the part I'm looking for are the slats with metal frame (queen size) and the hydraulic lift mechanism (metal). The parts are depicted here:

Metal slats and frame - no clue.

If you want to build a wood alternative, Ikea sells their slats separately from the bed frame.

Check out EQ3. They have a storage bed kind of like this one that you can also buy as a normal bed. Think you can just but the hydraulic lift portion, not sure on price. (most likely not cheap!)
