New hand control HC40 – ‘Designed with you in mind’

LINAK® introduces a whole new standard in hand controls for comfort bed adjustment systems - and it is unlike anything you have seen before! A new family of hand controls, called the HC40, sets a far higher standard for both gathering end user input and for customising and personalising comfort furniture in general. This is a hand control ‘designed with you in mind’.

The design of the new hand control HC40 relied heavily on an extensive user survey. This survey helped identify the features and functions most desired by users of comfort beds. By combining the end user survey results with the insights into customisation in the market, we developed and designed the HC40 - literally with ‘you’ in mind. 

Get a grip – look and feel the new HC40
Users expressed a clear wish for well-designed hand controls able to match the interior decor of their bedroom. We have therefore gone to great lengths to develop this “family” of hand controls, which has an exquisite look and fits securely in the palm of your hand. The HC40 has all the buttons and functions within reach in one grip, as well as easy, intuitive and tactile navigation.

The HC40 family really is ‘Designed with you in mind’.  

Be unique – different variants for different bed designs
To accommodate the diversity in bed types and designs, the HC40 comes in two designs – the HC40 FRAME™ and the HC40 TWIST™. One comes with an elegant metallic frame, whereas the other has a twisted shape. Both designs also come in a Standard edition and an Advanced edition.

The Standard edition is for beds where less-is-more. We have created a hand control that is not only developed for standard bed systems – adjusting backrest and leg support and running simultaneous drives, but which also provides a great design and is compatible with dual actuators, such as the TD4 Standard and the TD5 Standard. This gives you a system with numerous integrated features, as well as a lifting capacity of up to 7,000 N.  

The Advanced edition of the HC40 is designed to eliminate the need for multiple bedside devices. Regardless of how many motors, positions, or massage options the bed offers, the design of this control remains clean. With it comes multiple extra features, such as a light-adaptable colour display, silent alarm with massage, and personalised greetings. Both of the Advanced editions of the HC40 are compatible with the Advanced versions of our dual actuators TD4 and TD5. This results in compact advanced systems rich in advanced features, and a lifting capacity of up to 7,000 N.  

The above variety allows manufacturers to select the design that best matches their overall bed design, and the edition that matches their customer requests.
