New Product Raises More Than Just Eyebrows
By providing housekeeping departments with an easier way to move heavy sofas, SofaLIFT simultaneously decreases workers compensation claims, while increasing room cleanliness.
Titan Products, LLC has entered the hospitality market with a new product that has generated a lot of buzz at recent trade shows. The patented SofaLIFT allows one housekeeper to lift and move the heaviest sofa with the ease of pushing a vacuum. It’s sure to save money in workers compensation claims and in the reduction of related man-hours. This 14 pound all-steel device has built-in power capable of lifting any sofa weighing hundreds of pounds and it’s easily installed with a few wood screws. The included rear wheels allow for complete mobility when the sofa is raised. SofaLIFT also reinforces the sofa’s frame, it guides the bed back into place, and it keeps the sofa-bed from sagging. SofaLIFT is virtually indestructible and can be re-used on future replacement sofas.
“SofaLIFT is the future of housekeeping,” said Scott Rollins, Chief Operating Officer of Titan Products, LLC. “To thoroughly clean a room, housekeeping had one of three choices when faced with dirt under a heavy sofa: either risk injury by moving the sofa alone; or call a second person away from what they are doing to assist; or simply not clean that portion of the floor and hope that guests don’t notice when they open the sleeper. SofaLIFT eliminates the problem by allowing the staff to raise and move even the heaviest of sofas single-handedly, even when the sofa is up against a wall.”
Easily installed and invisible to guests when the sofa is in the lowered position, the SofaLIFT is small but very strong, it uses 2 gas-springs to generate up to 380 pounds of lifting force allowing the sofa to be raised quietly and effortlessly. Once in the upright position, the SofaLIFT also provides a 3-wheeled base that allows the sofa to be moved around from one place to another, with a single-handed push. This feature now allows a single housekeeper to move sofas all day without the risk of straining or injuring themselves.
Brad Winsor, Braman Furniture Sales Manager said, “We’ve seen an enormous amount of interest at the trade shows where we demonstrated the SofaLIFT on our best sleeper sofas. Our customers have been very impressed, not only by the ease of use, but also that it reinforces the sofa frame and helps guide the bedding back into place - creating a longer life for the couch itself. Plus, since the SofaLIFT has a universal fit, when it comes time to replace the sofa, they can simply unscrew the SofaLIFT and reinstall it on the new furniture. Nothing could be simpler, or more cost effective.”
