[FAQ | TIPS] How to make a built-in for a half-cotton? Table of instructions.

In this article you will find all the instructions for each type of mechanisms for half-tablet from our offer, as well as answers and advice on the most frequently asked questions from our customers.


This is a knowledge pill for how to build a half-cotch using mechanisms from our offer.







Complete list of instructions on how to make built-ins for individual half-tables can be found at the end of this article (files).



[FAQ | TIPS] Frequently asked questions:


1. What if the mechanism pulls the body with the frame up too much and does not want to stand from the horizontal position? Adjust the power of the springs.


When opening for the first time until the springs are properly adjusted, the action of at least two people is recommended. The mechanisms have high-powered springs hence to avoid any problems you should have a helper. The tension of the springs can be adjusted minimally with the screw on the back of the mechanism - this is a minimal adjustment, do not overdo it so that you do not need to disassemble the mechanism and reapply the springs.

An important issue is at what point the mechanism pulls the built-in with the front up. When this happens when the target mattress is not installed it is a normal thing - there is no load - then you should test the operation with the mattress!


When such a situation occurs when the target mattress is installed then weaken the operation of the mechanism by removing one spring in each mechanism. You need to disassemble the mechanism, remove one spring from each and put it back together and test again. This may seem cumbersome however, you should take into account that nowadays there is a very large selection of mattresses and every manufacturer's mattress has a different weight and height and materials used.


2. How to install the fronts? Why is it not in the instructions?


The installation of the fronts is left to each customer to work out on their own due to the fact that everyone has different aesthetic tastes and makes the box differently. Some want to have the front attached to the frame casing, while others make a lockable door.

During the construction of the prototype, we personally used angle brackets with which we screwed the front to the plate casing made around the metal frame. We divided the front into 5 equal parts with a minimal gap between them. Such a solution requires careful design and pre-drilling with specialized machinery.


3. Does anything else need to be purchased in addition to the complete kit?


This is a very difficult question, because it all depends on how you will build the boxes. You can use accessories such as angles from our range or mounting screws however, it all depends on your design. If you outsource the construction to an external company, you don't really need anything besides the frame. Of course, you will need straps to fasten the mattress (so that it does not fall into the development when closing), which we also have in our offer (we recommend using 2 straps per piece of furniture).



4. What is the lifting capacity of the mechanisms and who can sleep on the unfolded product?


The load capacity of the mechanisms depends on the selected frame. What is important is the dynamic load which means what weight during movement the mechanism can hold, this includes: the weight of the frame, the weight of the case around the frame, the mattress and the weight of the fronts.

90x200 - vertical or horizontal - mechanism with designation PI-00062-B02
Static load - 170 kg, Dynamic load - 70 kg

120x200 - vertical or horizontal - mechanism with designation PI-00071-B02
Static load - 300 kg, Dynamic load - 100 kg

140x200 and 160x200 - vertical or horizontal - mechanism with designation PI-00072-B02
Static load - 300 kg, Dynamic load - 140 kg


When it comes to sleepers, the averaged weights of sleepers including the mattress are:
90x200 - 150kg
120x200|140x200|160x200 - 250kg
Of course, the above weights depend on the correct execution of the development.


5. How much space is between the front and the floor?


The amount of space between the front and the floor depends on the type of legs chosen.
Low leg H-250 - about 166mm
High leg H-430 - about 350mm
