Dual Split King Adjustable Bed

The Split King Adjustable Bed base offers many advantages not only over traditional bed bases, but also over the other sizes available of adjustable beds.  So, what is a split king adjustable bed? The Split King Adjustable Bed is comprised of two individual bases that fit mattresses of the Twin XL size.  Together, these two bases create one large, King size sleeping arrangement, which is a great choice for many reasons.  Many people appreciate the fact that the Split King Adjustable Bed comes as two pieces, as it makes maneuvering around easier when moving the bed into the house, and around the house when rearranging.  Because the two pieces are able to be moved separately, the weight load is lightened for the move as well.  So the first major advantage of selecting a Split King Adjustable Bed size is seen from day one, when setting up the bed.

Another plus to the Split King Adjustable Bed is that since it is an adjustable bed, you can reap all of the benefits that an adjustable bed provides.  The adjustable positioning can provide relief for back pain, snoring, circulation issues and more.  The massage features available on many adjustable beds eases sore muscles, helps you de-stress, and contributes to improvements in multiple health issues as well as improvements in sleep.

split king adjustable bed features

Head and Foot Incline

The primary feature of all Split King Adjustable Beds is the head and foot incline adjustment features.  This allows customized positioning that helps you get comfortable.  Raise and lower your head until you find that perfect position then raise or lower your legs until comfortable.  This feature enables you to redistribute pressure and reduce pain. This feature is also beneficial for those who suffer from snoring, acid reflux, and more.

Adjustable Bed Remote and App Controls

Some models have a backlit wireless remote which makes seeing the buttons in the dark easier and provides mobility of the remote itself.  Other models are wired, for the person who doesn’t want to forget where they placed the remote.  Wired or wireless, some models offer Bluetooth capable remotes or phone apps that turn your phone into a remote.  This is available to work with an iPhone or an Android device.  Use your split king adjustable bed’s remote to activate your new adjustable bed’s massage features.



Split King Massage

split king adjustable bed massage

Massage functions are not available on every adjustable bed, so if this is an essential feature for you, make sure the one you select has it.  There are so many different options for massage features on adjustable bed bases, many models offer different types of massage as well as different intensity options.  For example, the Glideaway Ascend Adjustable Bed offers Sleep Enhancement Technology, which is a form of massage that utilizes a single vibe motor that is strategically positioned to afford your entire body a vibration.  The Reverie 8Q Foundation Adjustable Bed has three wave massage modes with ten levels of intensity, giving you the ability to truly customize your massage experience.  Some adjustable beds offer fewer intensity levels but come at a lower price, so depending on your particular preferences, you may choose one of those as well. No matter which adjustable bed with massage that you select, you will begin enjoying the benefits of massage.

split king adjustable bed wall-hugger

Wall-hugger/ Wall- Snuggler Engineering

Wallhugger technology means that your adjustable bed will move smoothly back as it raises so there is less space between the back of your bed and the wall.  This basically allows your body to be in the center of the motion and keeps you from moving away from your original placement as your head is raised.  The issue with models which do not have the Wallhugger technology is that they move a body away from the wall, and in turn, away from the nightstand.  Leggett & Platt’s Wallhugger Technology eliminates that issue.

Pillow Tilt Split King Adjustable Bed

Pillow Tilt is available on several models of Split King Adjustable Beds including the Leggett & Platt Prodigy, Ergomotion 8300, and Glideaway Elevation.  Glideaway tilts when raised.  Both Ergomotion as well as Leggett &Platt have an extra motor for the pillow tilt.  This allows the base to move up or down at the top without fully inclining.  This extra movement is an asset to the user as it adds customization to the adjustments.

Elevation Controls

The Glideaway Elevation Adjustable Bed has a patented Elevation feature that consists of dual lift motors which work together to elevate your sleeping experience.

Lumber Support Feature

The Reverie 9T split king adjustable bed and Ergomotion 8300 split king adjustable bed both have a lumbar support feature.  This feature aligns with the spine and is adjustable by degrees resulting in less pressure and more support where you need it most.

AC Power Outlet

While USB ports are found on numerous brands of split king adjustable beds, Rize beds have A/C power outlets.  While both are handy for charging your phone or tablet, there is a difference between the two options.  With A/C power outlets, your split king adjustable beds can power regular appliances as well.  Plug in a nearby lamp and you can enjoy the added light.  Use the A/C outlet to power a fan and voila, you have some bedroom air control.  You can still plug in a handheld device so having the A/C power outlets is an all-in-one power solution.

Lifting Capacity For Split King Adjustable Bed

The total weight that an adjustable bed can lift is called the Lifting Capacity.  It is key to note that the specified weight listed of 850 pounds for the Traditional Split King Adjustable Bed is the lifting capacity for each base, not for the entire bed. The weight of the mattress is included in the weight that the base must lift and is therefore needed to be taken into consideration when determining your lift needs.

Do the Split King Adjustable Bed Sides Move Independently or Sync Together?

The Traditional Split King Adjustable Bed is actually two bases so those who sleep in this size adjustable bed will take pleasure in knowing that as one person moves around in the bed, or gets in and out of the bed, the other person’s sleep will remain uninterrupted.  Your partner will no longer wake you when they toss and turn or when they get up in the middle of the night and you will no longer wake your partner when you wake early for work, or vice versa.  This is definitely a benefit of the Split King Adjustable Bed that everyone seems to like.  The two separate sides of the Traditional Split King Adjustable Beds are able to move independently so one side can be inclined to a differing degree than the other side. This is beneficial so that both people resting can be in the position that is most comfortable for them individually, at the same time.  With the Traditional Split King Adjustable Bed, there is a sync cable that can be installed when assembling and used with the remote to allow the sides to move independent from each other or to sync and move the same.  The Horizontal Split King Adjustable Bed is two bases, but both sides must be adjusted to the same degree at all times which is good for the couple who likes to sleep or watch television at the same level.

Split King Mattress Vs King Mattress

The mattress setup on a split king adjustable bed can be done one of two ways.  A split king adjustable bed can fit either a king size mattress or two twin XL mattresses.  If you know that both sides of the bed will be set up to work the same programs simultaneously, a king size mattress will work.  Using the single king size mattress ensures there is no seam between sides.  However some people prefer to have the ability for each side of the split king adjustable bed to run programs individually.  For this, two twin XL mattresses side by side will work best.  Each side can be set to a different position at the same time.  When using two twin XL mattresses, you can also sync the two sides to operate together.  By choosing two twin XL mattresses for your split king adjustable bed you have more choices.  Rest Right Mattress has not only a large number of mattresses but we also have a variety of mattress types.  Memory foam mattresses from brands like Glideaway and Nature’s Sleep provide support and comfort with temperature regulation.  Eco-friendly iAdjust mattresses can lessen back pain and last for up to 30 years.  We have Sleeptronic pillowtop mattresses too.  Mattresses from Rest Right Mattress compliment your new split king adjustable bed.
