When you think Murphy Beds, do you think safety? Everyone talks about the convenience of  Murphy Beds. How they’re easily tucked up against the wall ready for use in a matter of seconds. But rarely do consumers consider the safety factor.

When considering a Murphy Bed some questions should be asked:

1. What type of mechanism is raising and lowering the bed?
The Murphy Wall-Beds Hardware spring mechanism is counter-balanced with self lubricated bushings. It allows for finger tip operation and is designed to last a lifetime.

2. Is there a restriction on weight?
The Murphy Wall-Bed Leg System has been tested to withstand over 2500 lbs of dead weight.

3. Is there clearance under the bed when in the down position?
