When comparing adjustable bases Leggett & Platt’s Falcon and the Sealy Ease go toe-to-toe pretty easily. Upon first inspection there are
a few subtle differences. Leggett & Platt is missing the retention bar
thanks to their new MicroHook retention system. This makes the bar of the Sealy
Ease stand out a lot more. Leggett & Platt include a bar, but using it is
The second observation most likely is going to be size. The
Sealy Ease has a 4” platform, which will make it a bit more visible when it is
put in a bed frame. Leggett & Platt’s Falcon has a compressed frame that
has been pushed down to 2”. This will be visible but it is almost out of sight
when paired with a bed frame. If visibility is a concern Leggett & Platt
would get the points over the Sealy Ease.
Both come with wireless remotes that include multiple
features. The Ease pulls ahead on this one by including a one touch flat option.
This will make getting the bed back to a standard position, not necessarily quick,
but easier. Sealy’s Ease also has the option of including a 9-volt battery, at
an extra cost. Paired with the one touch flat option, getting the bed flat
during a power outage would be possible. Leggett & Platt do not have either
one of these features which gives Sealy’s East the advantage here.
Leggett & Platt fight back with the weight limit. Their
limit goes all the way up to 800lbs where the Ease taps out at 650lbs. That is
a significant difference when you consider the idea of kids jumping into the
bed too. Leggett & Platt have also made their newest frame 30lbs lighter
than the typical adjustable base.
Finally, we look at the paperwork. The warranties are quite
comparable, so it would come down to what you personally would feel is more
important. Sealy has better coverage on the parts, while Leggett & Platt
have better coverage on the frame. Both have long warranties that are going to
cover the bases for many years. Both are designed, engineered and assembled in America. At the
moment the Ease is slightly cheaper in overall price.
As with most things, at the end of the day it is going to
come down to personal preference and what your needs really are. If you are concerned
about weight limit, then the Falcon is going to be a clear winner. If you want
as many features as you can get, the Ease might be the way to go, but only
The best part of these two adjustable bases is that Sealy
and Leggett & Platt are both offering adjustable bed bases with some
high-end features at a price many people will be able to afford.
