Motorised beech wooden slats have got an electric device with a low tension double electric motor which allows the regulation of both headboard and footboard. The double motor is quiet therefore even in the middle of the night headboard or footboard can be regulated without disturbing anyone. Double wooden slats accompanied by some rigidity cursors allow total comfort for the lumbosacral area.

In the double and king size beds, motorised wooden slats guarantee either independent movement of each side or simultaneous movement by a specific cable.

Is it possible to adjust the position of the legs for aesthetic purposes?
Yes, the legs can be moved from the external side to the internal part of the frame so they will not be seen.
