8000 Series Double and Queen Hi-Lo Bed 

Queen Hi Lo Bed
Product Code: Queen - BHILO801Q
Also available - Double Hi Lo Bed
Product Code: Queen - BHILO801D

We introduced the Queen Hi-Lo bed for couples who still want to sleep in a bed together.  We were receiving an increasing number of requests from facilities who had couples, and single beds pushed together were just not suitable.

These beds are not for everyone, but for those who do want to share a bed - they offer the perfect balance of comfort, functionality and still look like a "normal" bed.

The 8000 Series Companion bed allows two patients can be cared for in comfort and dignity.  The back rests work independently, and, if specified, can be fitted with the unique Protek2 fan. This innovative safety feature stops heads, arms, pets or anything else getting trapped underneath the back rest if one is raised and the other flat. It features electric hi-low, electric knee brake, and a 300kg working load. The actuators are heavy duty, ensuring efficient, reliable function, and are warrantied for five years. The steel bed frame is warrantied for ten years. The 8000 Series bed is available in both Double and Queen size.

*The Safe Working Load MUST NOT be taken as the maximum user weight. Manufacturers quote a Safe Working Load for their beds. When a bed is tested, a static load is evenly distributed over the whole surface of the bed. Remember though that when a bed is in use the load is rarely static or evenly distributed. Should a visitor, for example, sit down heavily on one side of the bed then the shock load at that point will be extreme, the load will be uneven and the total combined weight may exceed the Safe Working Load. The SWL must take account not only of the weight of the user but also the weight of the mattress, bed linen & any other items loaded on to the bed eg. air pump for air-driven mattress. You should also take account of any likely weight gain by the user in the future. Typically, a mattress could weigh 20kg; an air-driven system could weigh as much as 30kg; a couple of pillows 3kg; bed linen around 12kg - the total of such items, together with anything else placed on the bed PLUS the weight of the user must NEVER exceed the Safe Working Load.
