Famous Two-Finger Operation

The SICO® Room Maker mechanism is the battleship of the murphy bed world. Just about any design theme can benefit from its famous “Two Finger Operation.” Because you can add lift mechanisms to the arc welded steel frame, we haven’t ever maxed out its lift capacity in over 35 years of building Flying Beds. Originally designed for use in the hospitality industry, today we use it in heavy-duty residential projects as well, such as King size beds, massive Table Beds, and the extreme weight of latex and memory foam mattresses.

Suggested life of this murphy bed is 30 years, being used three times a day. Each system is marked with a serial number indicating the manufacture date and the spring combination used to lift the weight of your bed face and mattress. Ideally, we like to see the Room Maker attached to the floor. For installation where that is not an option, an adaptation plate is now available for attachment to the stud base plate in the wall.

The Room Maker can be left completely made up with blankets, sheets and pillows. When the guest arrives, all they have to do is pull the bed down. It is completely ready for the exhausted traveler. A design feature we like to exploit is covering the headboard and mattress foundation in fabric. This feature should be coordinated with your bedcovering selection. When complimented with the art you hang inside above the headboard, along with your choice of 6 painted frame colors, you have a nice designer touch.

The Room Maker is unique from any other Wall Bed operation. When the mattress and box springs are lowered to the floor, they extend completely outside the storage furniture. While this requires more extension into the room, it certainly is luxury combined with ease of access for real sleeping comfort.

This bed has no limitation. You can’t make me say, “I can’t lift that,” or, “I can’t accommodate your 16″ thick mattress.” Feel welcome to call our office for advice on how we can make your bed disappear!


Protected by a 5-Year Warranty on the frame and mechanism. Lifetime Warranty on welds. Each SICO system is manufactured to Hotel-use standards of ease of operation, no maintenance, liability free operation. We have witnessed mechanisms working well after 30 years of constant use.

Exclusive SICO® Room Maker Features

Padded Buckboard — Made of 3/4″ (2cm) particle board with a 24oz (672 grams) Naugahyde® vinyl covering - available in six standard colors. This supports the head of the mattress when the bed is raised.

Headboard — Made of 1/2″ (1.3cm) foam, overlaid on ½” (1.3cm) plywood that is slanted like a prop-up pillow for reading in bed. The headboard automatically folds over pillows and holds them in place when the bed is closed.

Compression Power Pack System — Bed comes equipped with 2 Powerpack/cam units that make it easy to raise and lower any size bed with the touch of a fingertip. The coil is compressed when the bed is lowered to the floor and expands back to its original position when the bed is stored in the upright position. Using this technology, the coil is never fatigued by stretching like traditional Murphy bed springs that lose elasticity over time and become difficult to operate.

Fully Adjustable Mechanism — Allows for precise tension adjustments.

Bed Frame — Constructed of 16 gauge durable C.R.E.W. steel tubing.

Rubber Corner Bumpers — Protect the corners of your bed.

Handle/Leg Support — Handle doubles as a way to pull the bed down and acts as leg support. Or, you can use bed face molding as legs and handles (custom).

Six Bed Sizes - Designed to accommodate all standard bed sizes: Twin, Twin XL, Double, Double XL, Queen, & King sizes available. We often custom-modify the King frame to become a California King.

Mounting System - Floor mounted, but may be mounted to wall with optional adaptation kit. Operates independently of the cabinets or walls around it.

Pillow Storage - Pillows can be left on the bed when folded. The Room Maker can accommodate a maximum 18″ combined thickness of mattress/boxsprings, blankets and pillows.

Recess Concealment - When lowered, the head of the bed is completely out of the storage recess for sleeping.

Face Panel - A decorative bed face panel becomes a finished wall panel when the bed is raised. No doors to bother with.

Hidden Mechanics - The Room Maker’s mechanics, including power packs, are concealed out-of-sight.
