More options for adjustable comfort beds

The number of ways to create adjustable solutions for comfort beds has increased. LINAK® has released an elegant, yet very strong single actuator, the LA18 IC. These actuators aim to support bed manufacturers with single actuator systems and their need to add extra strength or overall more integrated features to bed adjustment.

A recent expansion of the LINAK® product portfolio for comfort furniture creates a handful of new options – all in one stroke, so to speak.

The linear actuator LA18 IC (Integrated Controller) enables you to add even more power to your bed designs – to some it might even expand the product portfolio with new bed designs.

Extra power when you need it
Traditionally, when creating adjustable comfort beds with LINAK® actuator systems in Europe, designers have mainly used the TWINDRIVE® dual actuators, TD4 and TD5. Both actuators have integrated controllers (IC Technology), allowing designers to create beds around compact and discreet adjustment systems.

Even better – the system still has features, such as Under Bed Light, massage motor and the possibility of controlling the bed via wireless units – be it the hand control HC40 TWIST or an app on your phone.

However, as bed design has developed to become heavier, we have experienced that sometimes a dual actuator isn’t quite enough. Therefore, we added the LA18 IC  to the product portfolio! With these actuator sets you can choose to create a system consisting of a series of powerful single actuators pushing up to 6,000 N. each – without having to find space for a control box.

Easy mounting: click-on back fixture
The LA18 IC  comes with an optional click-on back fixture (Ø33.8 mm), making mounting the actuators to the bed frame quick and simple. Furthermore, the built-in Bluetooth® Low Energy technology (BLE) enables you to utilize the wealth of cool features available with our newest hand control: HC40 TWIST™.
