Bunk Beds. Friday , September 29th , 2017 - 06:49:17 AM
Bunk beds built to those regulations are generally built to hold an adult weighing up to 250 pounds. If you are pushing the limits, try cedar instead of pine. In the beds we sell, the cedar logs are 5 ½ to 6 inches in diameter, while the pine is about 3 ½ inches in diameter. They are both built to federal specifications, and the pine bunk beds are very solid and strong, but if there is a question in your mind, go for the bigger logs. And of course, you can always put the big fella on the bottom, too.
Another word about safety, as you finish up your bunk bed: the distance in-between your bed frame and your mattress must not gap by more than three inches, or your children will be in danger of strangulation. PLEASE make sure you measure this accurately, and that your bed and mattress fit snugly.
Some of these provisions would be an extra long twin size bed, possibly a full size bed as part of the bunk, and one that accommodates heavier weights. Beds designed for young children only have a weight limit of around 150 lbs. - 200 lbs. and that includes the mattress. They also don`t have the same distance between the bottom bunk and the top bunk making them cramped for taller people to use. Sometimes the higher priced beds have additional features such as built in drawer or storage space. Even trundle beds are available which make them even more useful.. There are plenty of simple, well made bunk beds to choose from without all the frills at terrific prices. Buying the lower priced bed now might mean you need to buy another bed in the not too near future.
