But first, in order to answer the question, “How do adjustable bed bases for platform beds work?”, all you need to do is read on.

The adjustable mattress base for platform bed

The idea behind adjustable bed bases is as the name suggests – to give users the ability to adjust parts of the bed to fit their needs. In order to facilitate such capability, adjustable bases are built rather differently, and with more components, than regular bases.

The first thing we would like to note is the fact that bases that can alter their position consist of several parts. Don’t all bases consist of numerous parts? Well, of course, but it’s a bit different with adjustable bases.

The two basic parts of every adjustable bed base are the sleeping surface, and the joints. The base is built by connecting different movable sleeping surfaces using joints. This is essential, as it enables the base to serve its basic function. Parts need to possess the ability to be adjusted, and these adjustments are made at the joints.

Every joint rotates a varying number of degrees, depending on the desired sleeping position. The joint then moves the part of the base, for example, the head section, and places is into the correct position. Couple the longed-for, “zero-gravity”, with a proper mattress for your adjustable base, and sleeping perfection is guaranteed.

The electrical components

All right, we are one step closer to answering the question, “How do adjustable bed bases work?”. Now that you know how the base changes its position, we should look into the electrical components that make the movements possible.

Just to be clear, we are going to discuss modern adjustable bases, not the hand-operated antiques. Every modern adjustable base has electric motors that enable movements at the joints.

Depending on the type of base, there are twin drive and triple drive motors present underneath it, hidden from plain sight. Although not particularly large in size, they possess the power necessary to move the parts up and down, tilt them and slant them, or hug them against the wall.

These motors are quite durable, so there is absolutely no need to worry about failures. They are built precisely for that purpose, and they will last a really long time.

The remote control

We have discussed the basics of, “How do adjustable bed bases for platform beds work?”, so let us now shift our attention to the added capabilities of modern adjustable bases.

With motorized adjustments, there comes the need for easy position manipulation. And what better way to do it than with a remote control? You can attain any position, and configure every part of your adjustable base with just a couple of clicks.

Remote controllers for adjustable beds come in two basic variants, both with different benefits – wired and wireless.

A wired remote controller will never experience any signal reception problems, as it is connected to the base. Also, there is no chance of misplacing it.

As for a wireless remote controller, the basic benefit is the lack of a cord. You can operate your adjustable mattress base for platform bed from a distance, thus preparing it before actually lying down in it.

Whatever the type of controller you choose, the functionality remains the same – you press buttons and adjust the base of the bed to your liking.
