What is PIVOT?

PIVOT is a modular concept that allows you to customize your bedroom and exercise space. It all starts with the PIVOT Bed, which serves as the base and frame for the system. When locked upright, it provides numerous attachment points for PIVOT accessories. These include the PIVOT Power Rack, PIVOT Full-Width Pull-up Bar, and PIVOT Dip Bars, among others. To learn more about these attachments, please visit our Shop PIVOT Page.

Shipping time

The shipping time for PIVOT orders depends on our manufacturing cycle. If you place an order during the cycle, your order will be shipped within 2-12 weeks. We strive to provide the most accurate estimate possible and will notify you of any changes to your order's shipping date. Please note that shipping times may vary due to factors beyond our control, such as shipping carrier delays. If you have any questions about your order's shipping status, please don't hesitate to contact us.

What bed sizes are available?

PIVOT Bed is available in three lengths and three widths, and these are interchangeable for maximum size coverage.

The available lengths are:

1900mm (6'3")
2000mm (6'7"), and
2050mm (6'9")

while the available widths are:

1400mm (4'7")
1500mm (4'11"), and
1600mm (5'3").

Please note that international naming conventions and slight size variations may cause confusion, so it is essential to follow the dimensions provided on our product page. If you need a combination of sizes not listed, please contact us.

It is worth noting that the mattress sizes may not match the frame's exact measurements, and there is no issue if the frame is slightly larger than the mattress. Also, we are considering developing wider beds such as 1800mm (5'11") and 2000mm (6'7"), but we have not committed to these sizes yet. Please let us know if you are interested in these sizes, and the more feedback we receive, the more likely we are to develop them.

Where's the best place to position PIVOT in a room?

Check out our article on where's the best place to position the PIVOT Bed in your bedroom.

How does PIVOT stay upright?

The PIVOT Bed's base structure is designed to provide exceptional stability and strength, ensuring that it remains firmly in place on the floor. The bed frame pivots within the base using gas springs, and once it reaches a vertical position, dual latches engage automatically and can be locked independently. The base extends beyond the lines of force created by exercising, particularly from the pull-up and dip bars, so there is no risk of it toppling over.

How long does it take to set up or put down again?

The time it takes to adjust the PIVOT Bed depends on the accessories you have added. Raising or lowering the bed takes about 5 seconds and it automatically locks into the vertical position. The dual locks take an additional 5 seconds to engage or disengage. Attaching or removing the dip bars takes only a few seconds and the pull-up bar extends or retracts in around 10 to 15 seconds. If you have the Power Rack add-on with J-hooks and Spotter Arms attached, it takes less than 2 minutes to stow everything and return the bed to a horizontal position, hiding all the equipment from view.

How safe is this?

PIVOT product is manufactured in the UK and meets the internationally recognized safety standard BS EN ISO 20957-1 Stationary Training Equipment – General Safety Requirements and Test Methods.

The pull-up and dip bars are rated to 130kgs (286 lbs), exceeding the required safety standard of 717 lbs (325kgs). The product is self-supporting and has a very stable base, but it must be fixed to the wall or floor.

The latching system is designed to be redundant, and even without latches, the product will lower slowly due to the strong gas springs used to assist lifting and lowering.

To ensure safety, the base unit must be attached to the rear wall or the floor. PIVOT has developed a unique computer-controlled safety testing rig to simulate dynamic movements and perform stress testing.

What is the maximum rated user weight?

The pull-up bar and dip bars on our product are rated to 287lbs (130kgs), which is a standard weight limit for home gym equipment. However, to meet the required safety standard, our product has been tested to safely hold 2.5x the maximum user weight, which is 717lbs (325kgs). We have also conducted strenuous endurance tests using our custom-developed, computer-controlled test rig, simulating a heavy user performing 12,000 pull-ups and dips.

How strong do I need to be to lift and lower the bed?

You don't need to be strong as the vast majority of the weight is taken care of by carefully balanced gas struts. If you're able to perform exercise to any reasonable level, you will easily be strong enough and will probably be able to lift and lower the bed with one arm. If you are elderly or have an injury, you should probably get in touch with us before buying or wait until we have some display units near you to try out. With the power rack and all the add-ons on the bed, along with a full-load of weight plates, the bed does get heavier to lift – but anyone looking to perform this type of exercise will be able to lift and lower it.

Can I use a TRX or similar cables with the product?

Yes, many of our customers do so, and for your convenience, we are partners with TRX and their SYSTEM suspension trainers are available to order on our website.

How much does it weigh?

Without the optional power rack attachment or mat solution the whole product will weigh around 364lbs (165kgs). The mat solution is around 132lbs (60kgs) and the rack around 176lbs (80kgs).

Are there any restrictions on the size and type of mattress I can use?

The PIVOT Bed is compatible with any mattress size as long as it matches the bed size. The only restriction is the height or thickness of the mattress, which should be roughly 11" (270mm). Most mattresses fit within this limit, but very thick mattresses of 12" (300mm) may work as well. However, there may be minor contact between the top corner of the mattress and the rear wall and base unit during pivoting, but this should not be a major issue.

Do I need to do anything with my floor?

There are infinite types and standards of flooring, but the weight of the PIVOT Bed is not significantly more than regular beds, and its weight is spread out over a larger area. However, it's best to consult with a knowledgeable person in the building trade to assess your individual flooring scenario. Exercising on your floor, especially with free weights, can cause damage, so it's important to use a strong, rubber-based mat. Avoid using EVA foam matting as it has serious limitations and is unsuitable for heavy equipment. When exercising at home, be considerate of your neighbors, especially if you live in an apartment. If you live above others in an older building with wooden flooring 'rafters,' exercise at home with caution.

What is the age restriction for using the PIVOT Bed?

Supervision by a responsible adult is recommended for young teenage athletes. The bed should only be lifted and lowered by an adult who ensures it is securely locked before exercise. Children should not be allowed to use or play near PIVOT when it is in a vertical position.

Do you ship internationally? If so, where?

PIVOT ships to Europe, North America, Asia, and Australasia. For those outside these regions, please contact us via the Contact Form to discuss shipping options to your country.

Is there any way I can try out PIVOT Bed before purchasing?

We're looking into setting up a showroom here in the UK and also plan on providing an immersive online experience for our growing community of international PIVOT fans who want to see the bed in action. Please subscribe to our newsletter if you would like more information on this.

If you would like a video call to see PIVOT, please leave your details in the Book a Consultation Call pop-up form on the website.

PIVOT Bed has numerous attachment points compatible with resistance bands and TRX suspension trainers. The PIVOT Power Rack is also compatible with most accessories that use the metric measurement system of 75x75mm uprights with 16.5mm holes, which is an industry standard. However, those using imperial inches should note that accessories with 3x3" uprights or 5/8" pins may fit but could be slightly loose. The only exception is when an accessory has two pins/holes, such as a spotter arm, which may not align correctly with the holes on the uprights due to different hole spacing.
