The King 'Horizontal' is an all steel, hand welded, expertly engineered, top of the range wall bed designed for maximum safety, comfort and convenience and is built to last. Please see drawings opposite for overall dimensions.
'Horizontal' wall beds are slightly less versatile than 'Vertical' wall beds because they take up more space along the wall, are somewhat more challenging to incorporate into cabinets and do not lend themselves as well to use with a headboard. Also, as one side of the bed is permanently positioned against the wall, double sizes are more difficult to get into and out of (for the person on the 'inside') and to make up.
Having said this, there are situations where only a 'Horizontal' wall bed will fit (e.g. loft conversions with sloping roofs, some narrower rooms, dining rooms, etc).
Our ‘Horizontal’ ‘WISKAWAY’® Wallbeds are available, on a made to order basis only, for the few situations where our 'Vertical' wall beds are not the most suitable.
The King is the culmination of over 30 years’ experience in designing and supplying wall beds for the UK market. Its heavy duty construction makes it ideal for even the most gruelling applications, including hotels, hostels and rented and student accommodation.
Our ‘Horizontal’ ‘WISKAWAY’® King Wallbed is essentially a sideways folding version of our Victor 'Vertical' Wallbed, features the same hand welded, heavy duty all steel construction, automatically opening and retracting legs, adjustable counterbalancing, 10 year guarantee and is designed to be folded away fully made up with all the bedding - including the pillows.
The King comes complete with flexible rubber bedding retaining strap(s). These are permanently attached to the wall side and are simply stretched across when the bed has been made in the morning and hooked on to the opposite side, to hold the mattress and all the bedding (including the pillows) securely in place when the bed is folded away. Nothing could be simpler!
Because the bed is counterbalanced, it needs to be fixed to the floor.
To complement our wall beds, we offer a choice of Firmback (firm) or Sovereign (medium-firm), 8ins. (20cm) deep, hotel quality Interior Sprung Mattresses.
We also offer a simple white Wallshelf, complete with two wall brackets, curtain rail and runners, leaving you to supply the hooks and your own curtains to match the decor of your room. Details on request.
In London and the Home Counties only, we can also offer our bespoke 'STUDIO RANGE' Cupboard Surrounds, matching Wardrobes, Shelving Units, Work Tops, etc. on a supply and fit basis.
