Piston or Spring: Which Wall Bed Mechanism Wins the Space-Saving Battle?

Choosing the right wall bed mechanism is crucial for maximizing space while ensuring comfort and convenience. At Wall Beds West, the focus is primarily on spring-loaded mechanisms, known for their robustness and ease of use. These systems are designed to facilitate a quick and effortless setup, maintaining a balance between functionality and user-friendliness.

Why Choose Spring Mechanisms?

Spring mechanisms, as utilized in our Murphy Bed systems, provide a practical solution for frequent use. They are engineered to handle significant weight and allow the bed to be opened and closed with minimal effort. This type of mechanism is not only durable but also ensures that the bed can be stored away neatly without having to remove linens or other bedding accessories.

Piston Mechanisms: An Overview

While Wall Beds West specializes in spring mechanisms, piston systems are another popular choice in the market. These mechanisms can offer a quiet and smooth operation. They use a gas or air pressure system to help lift and lower the bed, which can be beneficial for those seeking a transition from day to night functionalities in their living spaces.


Making the Right Choice

When deciding between a piston and a spring mechanism for your wall bed, consider the frequency of use, the ease of maintenance, and the longevity of the system. Our preference for spring-loaded systems highlights our commitment to providing reliable and user-friendly wall beds.

Advantages of Wall Beds West Spring Systems

The spring systems at Wall Beds West are noted for their reliability and ease of assembly. These beds can be configured with additional features like a studio desk that remains level and lowers smoothly as the bed is deployed, enhancing functionality without compromising space.
