Two independently operated 2 – motor custom Cal King Adjustable system ( 35.5 X 77 inch) screwed on 72 x 78 inch platform in four places with L-shape brackets. Cut external frame 30 inches from the back so that platform can continue to be lifted from the bottom to access storage compartment.

One adjustable system modified as the head and lumbar sections move together in a “Straight back” motion. The other adjustable system is in the “Default mode” where the head section raises initially up to 45 degree angle before the lumbar (back) section then raises to a 65 degree angle.

Two adjustable beds placed side-by-side, wireless remote controllers.

Both adjustable systems are raised. The head and back and legs (at the knee location) can be raised.

Note that, when the back of the left mattress side is raised, it does not graze the wood treatment. The customer removed the window valence to avoid the mattress. He plans to shorten the window valence and re-install it on the left and right of the mattress.


Close up of the mattress side that  is held in position by a side mattress stopper which us hidden from view by the generous mattress cover in this perspective.

Each adjustable bed is screwed onto the plywood platform that can be lifted to gain access to storage compartment. To do so, the external frame is cut 30.5 inches from the back  – just after the location of the platform hinge. Then the remaining 47.5 inch of the external frame is screwed onto the platform that is lifted up to access the storage.

You can see the storage compartment above.

Sharon and John on their “maiden” experience of the adjustable bed!

The adjustable bed is screwed onto the plywood platform so it cannot move. Only four L-shape brackets that are supplied by Axel Bloom are required to be secure each adjustable bed on the platform.

When the adjustable bed is flat. Note that we added extra double slats and firmness adjusters to the lumbar region. Normally there are six double slats and 12 firmness sliders. Here we added 4 double slats and 8 firmness adjusters as John was not sure if he wanted it much firmer.

The family Nelson!


A beauty!
