Size

How wide is an adjustable bed

Twin adjustable beds. Controlled with two separate hand controls to operate each side independently.

Double 4’8” (142cm)
two independent mechanisms of 2'3"

King 5’2” (158cm)
two independent mechanisms of 2'6"

Super King 6’2” (188cm)
two independent mechanisms of 3'

  • 4ft 6in Adjustable Bed (137cm) ‘Double adjustable bed’. If you are used to a conventional double bed, you may find the mattresses relatively narrow. It is always best to choose the biggest bed that will fit practically in the room. The actual width is 4’8” (142cm)
  • 5ft Adjustable Bed (152cm) ‘King size adjustable bed’ Our most popular size twin beds. The actual width is 5’2” (157cm)
  • 6ft Adjustable Bed (183cm) ‘Super king size adjustable bed’. Two 3’ (91cm) mattresses side by side. The Perfect width if you have the space in your room. The actual width is 6’2” (188cm)

The reason for the variation between the nominal and actual width is because our twin adjustable bed separate mechanisms are made in Germany to metric equivalents unlike other retailers that buy in from the Far East.

How long is an adjustable bed?

The length of our electric double bed is 6’6” (2m) long, whereas conventional beds would only be 6’3” (190cm) for the double. The simple reason for this is that raising the head end and foot ends will have the effect of shortening the mattress.

Please take into account that we make the dual adjustable bed base an additional 2” (5cm) for the headboard to sit on the back panel. You should also allow approximately 1” (2.5cm) more for the headboard struts and bolts.
If you are restricted on space, we can make 6ft 3in reduced lengths. Please note that there will be a small premium to pay as it breaks our normal production.

How high is an adjustable bed?

We are often asked “what is the height of an adjustable bed?” We manufacture our electric double beds to a height of 22” (56cm) from the floor to the top of the mattress. This is an ideal height for most people however, not everyone is the same. For this reason, we offer to make our beds 2” (5cm) higher or lower at no extra cost.


Headboard

Choose from our range of beautifully crafted handmade headboards. We have a selection of designs to cater for a range of budgets and styles. All headboards will be upholstered in your choice of colour / material to match your adjustable bed base.


Drawers

If you require easy access to additional storage for your individual or twin adjustable bed. Our storage drawer/s are handmade using high-quality materials designed to withstand the challenges of day-to-day use.

  • Easy open and close drawers with heavy duty steel runners.
  • A neat hidden finger pull along the bottom edge, rather than knobs or handles.
  • Designed for easy fitting as the drawer and carcasses are pre-assembled.

Drawers are only positioned at the foot end of our adjustable beds to clear the motor and mechanics of the bed. These are 6” (15cm) deep to provide the maximum storage available.

NOTE: Drawers are not available when requesting reduced adjustable bed height.


Mattress

Compare our range of mattresses to find the option that is best suited to your needs. We offer a wide selection of mattresses that have been rigorously tested assuring you have the best night's sleep possible.

Memory 500 Mattress

  • This combination of perfect posture and pressure relief creates the ideal sleeping surface.
  • 5 Year Warranty
Cool Spring Ultimate Mattress

The ‘Cool Spring Ultimate Mattress’ is the combination of the best products currently available.

Massage / Optional

5 Motor Massage System. This fantastic massage system is far from being a gimmick. Powerful built in motors can give a gentle soothing massage or simply increase the intensity for an invigorating massage, passively exercising you whilst circulating blood to the joints and muscles. Relax in the knowledge that the timer will automatically switch off after a set time.

Transfer-Edges / Optional

To assist in getting in and out of bed, the option of more supportive firmer Transfer-edges is available to add to your mattress. This can be found under the ‘Extras’ category.

Your mattress is designed to flex and mould to your body shape to give you optimum support, however for anyone suffering with mobility problems, the additional pressure when sitting on the side of the mattress will causes the sides to compress, increasing the risk of sliding. Adding the Transfer-edge will give increased stability to the side of your mattress reducing the risk of mattress compression whilst not reducing the all-round support of your mattress.


Mechanisms

Choose from our range of adjustable beds mechanisms best suited to your needs.

  • Standard - Perfect for anyone up to the weight of 18st (115kg)
  • Heavy Duty- rated for users of 18st (115kg) up to 25st (160kg)

Raising the back section will first bring the neck or pillow section up to a nice natural position. Once the neck section has lifted, the back section will automatically follow until you take your finger off the button. The centre section is static. When sitting up in bed more weight is directed vertically down and so this section is fitted with adjustable tensioners to make the slats firmer or softer as desired. The foot end is two sections, the upper and lower leg and is raised by lifting from the knee. The action of the foot end is that as the legs raise the feet are brought up at 10° below the knee.

Extras

Choose from our list of optional extras improving the functionality and design. If you would like more information regarding any of our optional ‘Extras’ contact a member of our customer service team directly.

Side Retainers

Unlike an ordinary divan style bed, when there is no one on the mattress, adjusting the head and foot ends will mean there are only two small areas of contact between the mattress and the slatted base. This means that the slightest pressure or nudge when getting into bed will cause the mattress to slide. Although the mattress retaining clips are a not a necessity, they will save a lot of frustration repositioning the mattress.

Made from tough nylon they are strong enough to hold the mattress in position yet flexible enough not to cause injury if you sit on the mattress above the bars. The bars sit below the level of the top of the mattress. Sheets can easily be fitted around or on the inside of the bars.

The mattress holders are simply fixed to the inside plywood frame of the adjustable mechanism. Simply screw through the pre drilled holes. You can follow our easy installation guide.

Castors

The option of castors is only available when selecting options for your adjustable bed. For an additional £20 per bed you can upgrade to our strong Single castors with brakes which makes it easy to move your adjustable bed. Simply flick the small brake lever up to unlock, reposition and push the brake down to lock it.

Our castors have a load capacity of 50kg each in comparison to general quality castors having a rating of 30kg. A 10mm thread into a steel insert threaded into hardwood corner posts for strength.

Our adjustable beds come as standard with wooden feet with a felt pad to protect the floor. Adjustable beds are not particularly heavy and can be moved relatively easily however if you need to move the beds regularly and will find it difficult it may be a good idea to pay a little more to upgrade to have castors.

Upholstered Foot Retainer/s
  • Although the metal foot end mattress retainers are very practical, our upholstered foot end mattress retainers give a more astatically pleasing look whilst supporting the mattress better.
  • Upholstered in the colour and material to match your adjustable bed selection.
Metal Foot Retainer/s
  • Our metal foot end mattress retainers come as standard with our adjustable beds. When the head end of the adjustable bed is raised, the mattress will naturally try to slide down the bed.
  • Although they may not be the prettiest accessory the metal foot end mattress retainers are designed to hold the mattress in position.
Standard Cover
  • Soft touch knitted cover.
  • Designed to protect the mattress from general day to day usage.
  • Non washable
Deluxe Zip Off Washable Cover
  • Luxury Zip Off Washable Top’ supplied with casing (base & sides)
  • Far better than a mattress protector because it forms part of the mattress. An ordinary mattress protector is generally very thin and will crumply under you and become baggy as the head and foot ends of the adjustable bed are raised.
  • Cover easily un-zips completely around the top edge for washing.
  • Noticeably increased comfort.
  • The thick quilted top creates an increased air gap helping to reduce the risk of sweating.
  • Machine washable. Do not tumble dry. For this reason, we would recommend having a spare.
