Not everyone has a luxurious large apartment. Often it is necessary to calculate every centimeter of space and think over its practical use. Designers have long created a development that allows you to add functionality to the bedroom - double and single beds with lifting devices. The volume compartment for storing bed linen and other things hides inside such furniture. Another advantage is the orthopedic base. Also it will not be very difficult to lift the bed and put things together.
Types of devices
When purchasing a bed it is important to make sure that the structure is easy and reliable in operation. On the furniture market today, there are three main types of mechanisms:
- Gas shock absorbers;
- Coil springs;
- Manual lifting.
All the mechanisms of raising the bed are characterized by sufficient reliability and durability. They are fixed to the base of the mattress or to the side parts. This is a competent and completely new solution for the bedroom, relevant for small rooms. Make a purchase preferably from established companies that give a guarantee on the products.
Springs or manual lifting?
The most common is the manual version. It is light in handling and in construction, durable, reliable and low in cost. Manual mechanisms of lifting a bed have one drawback: for their use requires the application of physical effort. With a rare application this will not create problems, but it will be very inconvenient for daily.
The mechanisms of lifting the bed with coil springs are also simple and reliable to use. They have reasonable prices. The difference with manual - in less effort. But there were not any disadvantages: it requires a periodic replacement of the springs themselves, as they are subject to wear and tear during operation.
Gas bed lifting mechanism
Gas lift - this is a common and convenient option, which is today the most relevant. Equipped with a gas lift bed opens almost independently.
Simply amazing is the noiseless and smooth operation of the mechanism. The elevator is practical and reliable, often manufacturers give it a 5-year warranty.
Gas bed lifting mechanisms are able to lift mattresses of any weight, which is very convenient, since the springless new orthopedic mattresses are quite heavy. The bed, depending on its weight, has a shock absorber with a suitable capacity.
