Our sofa bed mechanisms are covered in a strong polypropylene canvas that is attached via springs on both sides to provide a great nights sleep no matter how you lay. Topped with a 60mm memory foam mattress for comfort, there are no hard slats or rigid metal nets pushing up through the mattress – ensuring you drift to sleep effortlessly.

Our sofa beds are deployed with the minimum of fuss using a 3 fold mechanism – simply remove the sofa cushions and pull forward and up. Our sturdy steel frame glides out easily and quickly so you can be ready for bed at a moments notice.

Full width steel legs provide the beds support and also come with finger protection for when folding away so you get no nasty surprises.

Perfect fit on any sofa

All our sofa bed mattresses are 1800mm (1.8 meter) long and available in widths from 620mm to 1520mm – The size of which will be determined by the seating arrangement and sofa style you select.
