Overview

How high can furniture be raised?

As a guide, the following heights are ok in most situations:

40mm (1 x 40mm raiser)
80mm (2 x 40mm raiser)
100mm (1 x 100mm raiser)
140mm (1 x 100mm & 1 x 40mm raiser)

Can the raiser be used with square furniture legs?

The "well" in the raiser is round but can accommodate any shaped leg so long as it fits within that well. They should not be used if the furniture leg does not fit within the well.

Can the raiser be used if the furniture has castors?

The answer is probably yes. The wells on the raisers are designed to accept common castor sizes. Don't use them if the castor is too big to fit within the well.

Safety

When installing Bed Raisers you need to check the stability. There are some situations where these Bed Raisers will not provide adequate stability, and must not be used. The furniture could fall, causing
serious injury or death if these Bed Raisers are used inappropriately.

We recommend setting up the furniture on the Bed Raisers, and then physically getting into and out of the furniture several times. Take the size, weight and steadiness of the patient into account. This will allow you to make a reasonable assessment of the stability.
