Can the operating system be fitted to a stud wall or does it need to be fitted to a solid wall?
SleepSpace can be fitted to any wall either a solid wall or a stud wall. If the stud wall is not strong enough we will fasten the metal supports to the ceiling and floor structure and will advise on the extra cost involved to undertake the necessary work. This will be carried out by our own fitters.
How much space does the operating system require?
Just 400mm (40cm) is all that is required to house the motor, electronic pulley system and channels. It is fixed to the wall using sturdy brackets and is concealed by paneling. If, rather than plain paneling you are looking for something to match your existing décor or you would like to incorporate shelving or a settee, it’s no problem. SleepSpace also provide a complete design and fitting service by our experienced in-house designers. We are here to help every step of the way.
Is this the same for the bed?
The bed frame itself is 100mm (10 cm) thick. It then depends on what thickness mattress you want to use. We can manufacture the ceiling soffits to suit the depth required.
What are the panels made from which conceal the mechanism?
Standard panels are made from MDF and can be finished to suit a client’s requirements. This might mean plywood, paint, vinyl graphics, veneers, melamine’s, wallpaper, marble, and granite … whatever you require. Just give us a call and we’ll be happy to oblige. The panels can also be easily removed if required.
Is the SleepSpace system low maintenance?
Yes, in fact it is maintenance free! Unlike other systems, it doesn’t have a sensitive counterbalance system, so there’s no regular re-calibration to be performed. The SleepSpace system has also been rigorously tested for safety, durability and smooth operation, so you can be confident of years of trouble-free use. In the unlikely event that maintenance is needed all parts can be accessed by our engineers with a minimum of fuss.
Is the system noisy?
Absolutely not! The bed glides silently and smoothly into position. We have test run the SleepSpace system non-stop in our factory for the equivalent of 10 years use. Assuming the bed was operated twice a day. The system performs perfectly!
Is it safe?
The SleepSpace system has been designed with safety in mind. In order to raise or lower the bed a key switch is provided as standard. If you let go of the switch then the bed will automatically stop. When the bed is in the lowered position, it rests on an integral sturdy leg assembly. When it is in the ceiling, it locks into position.
Our engineers will set the weight the system has to lift to suit your mattress and bedding. If someone sits or lays on the bed the system detects the extra weight and stops within 2 seconds. Limit switches are also installed that detect the position of the bed frame in the up and down positions and cuts off the power appropriately. Infra-red sensors can also be installed on the underside of the bed platform if required.
What material is the bed frame manufactured from?
The bed frame is manufactured from robust steel box section and comes complete with a slatted timber based ready to fit a mattress on top. The underside of the bed and frame surround are clad in MDF and painted as a standard finish. Any finish can be provided to suit individual taste and the decor of the room.
What is the load capacity of the bed?
All SleepSpace bed frames can lift a maximum weight of 250 kg. This will cater for any mattress. Once on the floor it will support any weight just like a normal bed.
For other lifting platform applications then this capacity can be increased to suit the specific requirement and our engineers can advise on this.
How comfortable is the bed?
Very comfortable! SleepSpace has been designed to take any mattress of your choice. Even if you have a specially made bed size we can manufacturer our frame to suit your own personal requirements.
How much does the SleepSpace system cost?
The standard system costs just £3,500 excluding VAT and fitting. This comprises a double bed frame with slatted base, standard MDF paneling, and electronic operating system. The cost will vary dependent on your requirements. For example if you would like decorative paneling or lighting, built-in shelving or cupboards or any other bespoke requirements.
How does that compare with similar systems?
Compared with other systems on the market, SleepSpace is extremely affordable. It is around half the cost of its lowest competitor.
When you consider that the average cost of building an extension is approximately £1000 per square metre, it’s the sensible way to make the most of available living space. We can keep costs down without compromising quality because SleepSpace doesn’t have a costly counterbalance system, doesn’t require a structural survey and is manufactured in the UK, so there are no shipping costs.
