Wallbed mechanism - which has highest weight capacity?
« on: February 15, 2021, 03:17 PM »
Anyone with knowledge of wallbeds know which lift mechanisms out there have the highest weight range?

A customer is having me make a queen vertical wallbed. The designs I've come up with could be heavier than a normal cabinet faced bed panel.

Ideally it would be easily adjustable - are the coil sprung units a pain?

This one lists 240# limit:

Rockler had some in stock.  Might check them for capacity.

I have built several beds with the legit Murphy Bed hardware.  I used the Supreme Steel kits and had no problems, even with steel panels, although most were covered with applied raised panel cabinet doors.  They are fairly easy to build, install, and adjust.  The adjustment is just a matter of adding or removing a spring per side.  They also offer a heavier spring that you can use to balance it out.

People complain about the price of the hardware, but it is worth it.  If you buy direct, you're barely paying more than a dealer does.
 They offer a lifetime warranty, I've never seen one fail, and they aren't paying me to say this.
