Platform Bed Lift Mechanism with Mattress Platform and Wooden Slats
Make under-bed storage easily accessible with these bed lift packages—each includes a mattress platform and cambered wood slats!
Considering the amount of unused space under the average bed, it's no surprise that that's one of the most popular places to store things. But who wants to crawl around on all fours and fend off dust bunnies? This bed lift and included mattress platform solves both problems. Just lift the platform with a single hand to reveal abundant storage space, all fully visible, easily accessible and shielded from the dust that would otherwise collect on your items. The gas pistons provide lift for easy opening, and dampen the action when closing.
- Lifts can be oriented to open from the side of the bed, or the foot of the bed
- Mattress platform moves away from the wall as it lifts for better clearance and easier access
- Mattress platforms feature sturdy steel construction with comfortably sprung wooden slats
- Since no box spring is needed, you get a full 12'' of vertical height under the bed for storage
- Reverse camber of wooden slats, paired with center support leg, minimize sagging
- Six double slats are provided for extra support where needed
- Complete assembly instructions are included
- Wooden enclosure not included—materials should equal or exceed 3/4'' hardwood plywood and 4/4 hardwood lumber
Note about mattress weight:
To ensure proper functioning, add your mattress weight to your platform weight. The sum of these numbers should be as close as possible to the listed lift capacity. Mattress weights vary significantly based on size, thickness and materials. Contact the manufacturer if you don't know the weight.
For platform weight, use the following:
- 77 lbs. for twin-size
- 100 lbs. for full-size
- 115 lbs. for queen-size
