What makes a Wall hugger?
A wall-hugger is a type of futon frame that does not require the frame to be moved away from the wall in order to convert the frame. Another name is zero tolerance futon.
This makes the futon sofa significantly easier to convert into a bed, as the frame and mattress together can sometimes weigh over 300 pounds. Strata’s patented front loading mechanism makes converting a futon quick & easy for one person to accomplish with zero wear and tear on your floor and walls.
Strata Furniture is the only futon frame company that makes a true wall-hugger zero tolerance futon. Place the frame next to the wall and the front loading mechanism allows you to convert the frame from sofa to bed quickly and easily, combining the versatility of a futon with an ease of use that will improve your quality of life.
Sustainable Plantation Wood
Strata Furniture’s patented designed wall huggers use top grade quality wood throughout the entire frame. From the wood in the arms to the wood in the slats of the body. This ensures a well built durable product not only on visible parts but on your entire piece of furniture. The wood is Malaysian Hardwood (rubber wood) grown using Sustainable Forest Management to provide you with the best quality product and also care for our environment. As wood is a natural material, your piece of furniture may have variations in the texture and color as compared to the floor sample, pictures or wood samples. This variation adds to the uniqueness and style of yor product.
Strata Frame Finish
Strata Furniture ensures all it’s products are finished in a 5 step process to produce a beautiful durable finish. As with wood, the finish will slightly vary as it takes to the wood and grain differently. If your product ever needs touchup we suggest Minwax stain markers available at your local hardware store. Test the color on a non visible area first.
Strata Product Care
When moving your furniture do not lift products by the arm caps.
When setting items on your furniture please use a coaster, felt or other protective products to protect the furniture.
Beware that some felt pads may contain glue and when pressed down on arm caps can damage the furniture.
Do not expose the frame to direct sunlight or heat as this may fade the finish
For the Signature Line frames their is a felt lining for the back panel. Please periodically check the felt and replace if needed. Your local hardware should have similar felt.
When converting the frame always pull the seat deck out horizontally until the roller hits the front groove and then lift vertically to avoid slamming the frame down.
Periodically check to make sure bolts have not loosened and if need be tighten.
To clean your product wipe with a damp cloth. Do not use solvent based products as they may harm the finish. If using a household cleaner, test the cleaner on a non visible area before using on visible areas.
