Why traditional sofa beds sag and lose their shape


There was a time when traditional sofa beds couldn’t be made as comfortable as a traditional sofa.  This was due to the bed mechanism taking  up the additional room where the  sofa cushion support was  fitted.  After a short period of use, a sagging dip in the centre of the sofa would form.  The sofa bed became  unsightly and extremely uncomfortable for sitting and sleeping.   Thanks to Saguard, these issues are no longer.

What is Saguard?

  • Saguard is a “slide in” protector board engineered with hi-tek rubber cushioning and spring board.
  • Saguard keeps sofa beds comfortable and looking new due to its anti-sag properties.
  • Saguard isolates the bed mechanism below the seat cushions taking the weight from our bodies.
The result,  zero body weight pressure is placed on the underneath bed mechanism.

  • Saguard is extremely light and easy to slide in and out with easy under sofa storage.
  • All Skyways sofa beds come equipped with Saguard.
  • Saguard is a patented system exclusive to Skyways.
