Futon. Sunday , April 15th , 2018 - 18:33:37 PM
What you should know is that there was a break or separation in the quality for futons that emerged in recent years brought about by many mass merchant retail stores. The futon industry up to this point had been dominated by futon specialty stores and retailers who committed themselves to purchasing products made by the many United States futon manufacturers. These different companies were responsible for the innovations and stunning designs being created in solid woods like oak, ash and maple throughout the futon industry. Many of these frames were built as good or better than many conventional sofas in the market since they utilized hardwood construction in their frames.
Arm rests should be glued and screwed together. Remember that glue is an excellent bonding agent for a the type of wood your futon frame is likely made out of. Gluing and screwing a futon frame together is even more desirable. The screw not only adds reinforcement, but is drives the wooden pieces closer together acting like a vice while the glue dries before shipping.
In 1990 Gary Shaffield & Robert Fireman filed a futon design patent utilizing a tension spring to facilitate movement from position to position. (Patent Number 4996730). This design was very similar in look to the 1985 patent involving Robert Fireman and many of the structural components and aesthetics of these two designs featured in both patents when compared were similar. The design of this frame however focused on the legs built into the seat section that when pulled out would engage and then when the frame was retracted featured a stop that helped prevent the legs from becoming entangled with the base. Incorporated into this design was a tension spring that helped with the operation of the frame. Many early futons would go through refinements in design and function and this is often how improvements in frames would be created and how they found their way into the products we would purchase. It should be noted that in my studies of futon patents many other patents in futon designs are held by Robert Fireman in both tri-fold and bi-fold designs. He is considered one of the early pioneers in futon design throughout the industry.
