Capsule Bed “Sleep Capsule”

This capsule hotel became very popular for its capsule-shaped beds that condensed all necessary features into a small space and spread across the country. Capsule beds also came to be used in nap rooms of workplaces where employees work around the clock and gained name recognition. Their popularity waned momentarily, but they are attracting attention again as a result of refreshed designs and materials.
Environmentally Friendly Panel Assembly Capsule Beds with Excellent Functionality and Cost Performance
To be prepared for the off chance that there is a fire, the materials are fire-resistant or incombustible. In order to prevent fires from spreading among capsule beds, the curtains and rolling screens at the entrance of capsule beds have also been flame-proofed.
The beds are sturdy and scratch-resistant, as they are made of aluminum and steel. The anodized aluminum finish prevents deterioration by oxidizing and protecting the surface of the aluminum materials.
Sounds from neighboring capsule beds are absorbed by the cushioning materials within the panels, as well as the mattresses and futons. Users can sleep comfortably without worrying about ambient noise.
These beds can be freely transported anywhere with enough space for a person to pass. As long as there is space for assembly, the beds can be smoothly stored and set up in existing buildings and nap rooms that have small entrances. Compared to FRP beds that have to be transported in their finished form, transportation costs are significantly lower. These beds can also be recycled when they are no longer needed.
The aluminum resin panels have smooth surfaces without any irregularities, making them resistant to scratches and stains. Minor stains can simply be wiped off. Excluding light bulbs and other consumable items, there is hardly any need for maintenance.
Front entry / Layout : Tandem
Many capsule beds can be placed in tight spaces.
Side entry / Layout : Tandem
Wide entries make it easier to enter and exit the beds.
Side entry / Layout : Individual
The entries are laid out alternately at the center of the room to provide private spaces.
Thorough Quality Control for Safety and Reliability
The environment is important for comfortable sleep. Kotobuki Sleep Capsule are made of smooth panels without any irregularities and have as little protrusions as necessary in order to prevent accidents and injuries inside. The panels have been certified as noncombustible by Japan’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, and Transport.
Design that Attracts Attention Outside of Japan
We have manufactured capsule beds for popular capsule hotels, such as “nine hours,” which stands out for its neo-futuristic design resembling a spaceship, and “THE LODGE MOIWA 834” in Niseko, Hokkaido that attracts skiers from around the world. We have also made capsule beds for projects outside of Japan, such as an office nap room for Hyundai Card, a major credit card company in Korea, and a passenger ferry for Stena Line from Sweden. We have a framework for overseas expansion, as there are our group companies in the United States, United Kingdom, France, and various other locations around the world.
