Tiltaway Beds

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Tiltaway Beds come in 3 models: the Vertical Wall Bed, the Side-Tilt Wall Bed, and our budget Flex Wall Bed.

Our beds are designed to be versatile, so any model will help you get more from your favourite spaces. Many customers find the Vertical Wall Bed to be perfect for transforming a spare bedroom into a work office. If you want an even more space-efficient solution, the Side-Tilt Wall Bed lets you discretely hide a spare bed in a small space, ready to pull out when the grandkids come over.

Check out our Product Page for more details, or try our beds yourself at one of our Display Sites.

 

Absolutely! Unlike sofa beds and futons, Tiltaway Beds do not require any folding mattresses, so you are sleeping on a quality mattress without the bars and lumps associated with sofa beds and futons.

 

No, our price includes installation, so you don’t have to worry about it. If you are a handyperson you can save money by installing the bed yourself, but most of our customers prefer to have us do the installation.
Our budget Flex Wall Bed comes in a flat pack for simple DIY installation. We can also install your Flex Wall Bed for you, for an additional charge.

 

Yes you certainly can, in most situations the pillows will also stay in place.

 

Our wall beds are very easy to operate. Our spring-loaded mechanisms ensure effortless opening and closing. The mechanisms are counter balanced to prevent your bed from unexpectedly falling. You can raise or lower your wall bed with just one finger! This is perhaps another reason why they are very popular in Retirement Villages.

 

The operation of your wall bed is important as it affects its ease of operation and durability. Our beds operate with springs as opposed to gas struts. Gas struts tend to lose pressure over time and this can make the bed very heavy to lift and dangerous. 

 

Our wall bed frames are made from Aluminium which results in a high quality long lasting wall bed. Aluminium frames are lighter and stronger than other inferior frames such as those made from steel.
Our budget Flex Wall Bed is made in China.

 

We only source premium quality infrastructure for our Wall Beds. Our lifting mechanism is made in Germany and the rest of the hardware is made in Canada. All of our cabinetry is made to order here in Australia. Our budget Flex Wall Bed is made in China.

 

We provide a 15 year warranty on our main range (ie Vertical Wall Beds and Side-Tilt Beds). Our budget Flex Wall Bed comes with a 5 year warranty.

 

Tiltaway beds are guaranteed to hold up to 600kg. 

 

Yes, the bed is easily movable and you can take it with you. However, we often find that a Tiltaway Bed in a property is a strong selling point. Sometimes leaving a Tiltaway Bed in a property is all it takes to clinch a sale.

 

Our beds are designed to take a normal mattress. We can arrange a quality mattress for you, or you can supply your own. Our beds will accommodate a mattress up to 25cm thick, or if you opt for our extended leg model you can have a mattress up to 30cm thick. We recommend Innerspring NOT Latex mattress’s. Latex tends to be too heavy and generally isn’t rigid enough to be stored in the upright position.

I recently had Chris install a bed in our spare room so I could convert it to an office. The service, attention to detail and end product cannot be faulted. I am beyond happy with how it turned out and would not hesitate to recommend Tiltaway. As well as all that Chris is nice guy and pleasure to deal with!

We have just installed a Tiltaway wall bed in our new apartment. The second bedroom is quite small. We want to use it as a study but also to have a bed available for grandchildren and occasional visitors. This bed seems the ideal solution. When it is folded up (a very simple operation), the room feels spacious, far more than it would with a sofa bed. And, in our experience, a proper mattress is more comfortable than even an expensive sofa bed. This option is also many times less expensive than a third bedroom would have been.Chris of Tiltaway responded promptly to our call, visited the apartment, measured and advised us on options. Soon after, he delivered the components and installed the bed himself in a few hours. It works beautifully and looks attractive as a slim cupboard. He was efficient, pleasant and considerate. It is an enormous advantage to have the manufacturer install the bed. We had previously purchased another wall bed for our country cabin. It arrived in a huge and very heavy carton with instructions which were supposed to be suitable for any ‘reasonably handy’ person. We realised immediately that we couldn’t possibly handle the installation, given its complexity, and hired a local handyman. He was competent but had no experience with these beds, so the work took most of a day and was not satisfactory, in contrast to the result with Tiltaway. We recommend this product very highly.

Anyone looking for a fold away bed should certainly hire Chris from Tilt Away Beds. The end result is absolutely fantastic. He was great with from start to finish. We installed a wall to wall solution in our study with filing cabinet, shelving, cupboard and a queen size bed. His advice along the way and great communication meant we got exactly what we wanted. Completely custom made with excellent attention to detail and finish. Well done Chris and thank you.

Our daughter was due to visit from Canada. I contacted Chris with my request for an urgent delivery. Not only was he able to expedite the delivery, but drove up to Castlemaine and installed it. I call that customer service! Thanks Chris. It looks crisp and clean, is very easy to operate, is well made and comfortable. I would recommend tiltaway to anyone seeking a space saving bed.Stephen Hands

We've had our bed for 5 years. It was the best thing we did during our renovation. So easy to fold down and up again for visitors in our family room.

A new bed in a small space - what a transformation. I would recommend this company which provides a very good product, excellent service and a competitive price. Thanks to Alan in Sydney for providing excellent service, advice and construction of a well designed unit. The mechanism on the bed is very easy to use. Strongly recommended.
