Again the hollow nature of these strecther rails presented issues with breakage and bending. Early designs involved a steel tooth design that would fit into pocket welds on the arms. These would snap off over use. The alternative design was to run a bolt through the arms and into the rails. While better it still did not address the issue of bending stretcher rails.

Futons usually have exposed frames and that implies that the frame material and design is something you have to think about when shopping for cheap futons.

The patents and inventions featured in this article are truly just a sampling of the many designs and innovations by various futon inventors who had the vision to create and design furniture in an all new light. The futon industry itself has grown up quite a bit since its humble beginnings in the early 80's and many futons you'll see today are based on these early concepts and designs. I found it fascinating to study the evolution of the futon from a simple tri-fold design into the sofa looking frames of today. The innovations that came from these designs really helped to move forward this line of furniture that we know today. Next time you see a futon frame I hope you'll think about these inventors and the legacy they've left on this furniture category.

However, as most of these pieces of furniture utilize a very similar mattress, futon frames are where most of the design innovations are focused. Therefore, when selecting a futon for your home, office, or dorm room, picking the right frame is essential. Thankfully, these frames are available in a fairly wide array of sizes and styles.
Lana Duke Futon, 2017-09-26 23:55:23. Having worked in furniture for many years I have always believed strongly in that you get what you pay for or that the value of what you're buying is in direct relation to the quality of the product and the price placed on those goods or services. I also believe that some products are capable of giving an entire line of furniture a bad name due to their specific lack of quality and unjustly so because one type of product doesn't represent the qualities of an entire line of furniture. No better example of this can be said than what black metal futon frames have done against the futon industry in the last 10 years. In this article I'll explain my position about the negative aspects these metal frames provide and why it would be best for consumers and retailers alike to move away from these frames that are giving the industry a bad name.

A good quality finger jointed cross rail might be just as strong as a solid cross rail in many ways, it still accepts a downward pressure that can force poor quality joints to loosen. Experience shows that a solid continuous hardware cross rail is less likely to break than a segmented one. If the futon you are considering buying has segmented stretcher rails, ask the dealer to explain the history of that manufacturer's products with this system. Ask if a cross rail does fail, what the dealer's policy is about replacement. Although, most dealers generally will not pay for shipping, they should at least offer the replacement part for free with in the span of the warranty.

They are also better on bad backs than traditional mattress and box spring sets usually are. This is due to the firm mattress being thinner and keeping your spine straighter during the night.

Although pinewood futon frames dominated the market for many years, hardwood futon frame prices have continued to fall making them more prevalent and affordable. Although logic might suggest that hardwood futons are more indestructible than pine wood frames, there are many hardwood frames on the market that are more prone to catastrophic failure than others. However, with some basic knowledge about wooden futon frame construction, you will have more confidence when you are comparing models and prices.

These came with imported mattresses that were constructed to be no more than 5\" to 6\" thick and contained ground up textile or fabric scrap. Various colored outer coverings that were not removable were tufted around the mattress materials making these difficult to clean. They retailed very cheap and individuals on a budget recognized the futon design from higher end wood models and felt these were indeed bargains since futons had a very good reputation for longevity and quality construction. Unfortunately these black tubular frames would begin to give futons a bad name.

The arms are hollow and pocket welds are welded onto these arms with which to attach stretcher rails. Steel hinges are attached to the inside of the arms and hollow metal seat and back racks are connected to the hinges using regular screws. The problems start in the seat section. The hollow tubes and spot welded bars that make up the foundation of the seat section are prone to breaking loose off of the seat section. The spot welding is not sufficient enough to keep these bars from breaking loose and are a result of the low cost approach of building these decks. Another issue that results from the hollow tube of the seat section is that it is prone to bending from normal use. The hinges that are attached to the arms suffer the same fate as over time customers have brought these in to stores showing them bent out.
