My husband & I bought a similar type of bed last Fall, also king size (split king, adjustable, like yours). We already had a nice hardwood frame (head board, side rails, & foot board) & we wanted to use it with the new bed. However, it was a bit of a challenge. The company we bought it from (Mattress Firm) had to special order extenders for the legs of the adjustable base in order to get the base high enough to fit into the wood frame. The downside is that the surface of the bed is very high. For my husband who is 6 feet tall, this is not a problem. But for me, at 5'5", it's almost like mounting a horse in order for me to get into bed. Getting out of bed is no problem. We are in our early 50's now but if we keep this bed for very many years, "mounting the horse" may get to be an issue. I know there are workarounds for that but will cross that bridge when we get to it. Good luck & hope this helps!
