What is the difference between an Articulated and Hi-Lo foundation?

The Articulated foundation or the PLUS model allows the user to only raise or lower the head and knee section of the bed electrically by a wired remote control or manually with a crank on manual SleepSafe Bed models. The Hi-Lo foundation on fully electric model allows the user to raise and lower the head and knee section of the bed and control the overall height of the mattress from the floor, electrically by a wired remote control. The same features can be controlled manually with a crank with our Manual Hi-Lo model.

What is the difference between a box spring and a bunkie board in a fixed foundation?

Each SleepSafe Bed needs some type of foundation for the mattress to rest upon. In a bed with the Fixed foundation, you have a choice between a box spring or Bunkie board for your mattress to lie upon. The difference is in the height, a bunkie board is 2 inches high and a box spring is 8 inches high. When you want to maximize the safety rail height above the mattress you should choose a bunkie board so that the mattress surface can be positioned 6 inches lower within the bed’s foundation. In order to raise the mattress surface as far from the floor as possible you should choose a box spring so that the mattress will be positioned 6 inches higher. There is no price or comfort difference, only a height difference.

How does the padding attach to a SleepSafe Bed?

Industrial strength Velcro is used to secure the padding to a SleepSafe Bed.
