xxtk. Bunk Beds. September 01st , 2017.
There are federal regulations regarding bunk beds, so you`ll want to make sure that whatever bed you choose meets the regulations. We`re talking safety here, and things do happen. But you certainly wouldn`t want a bed that doesn`t meet the regulations, so make sure that the one you buy, does. Most accidents with bunk beds happen to children under the age of three. Many of these accidents can be avoided by having safety rails on both sides of the top bed. If one side of the bed is against the wall, that can be sufficient-but it must be against the wall. There are also regulations regarding headboards. There is a link to a page with the regulations at the bottom of this article for those who wish to read further.
The earlier standard sort of bunk is referred to as a twin over twin. When most people think of these beds they will visualize the idea of 2 single beds, 1 straight above the other, made from solid wood and / or metal. This old favorite type remains incredibly common nowadays although there are plenty of modern twists to that basic design and style. One case in point is to have a double mattress at the base which has a single bunk above establishing sleeping space for up to three kids. The actual bunks may well be tiered or perhaps run at right angles to each other. Lots of different versions can be purchased nowadays; you will be amazed at some of the different configurations around.
Of course, there are many skilled people out there who could accomplish this rather daunting task with no problem. There are others, who, perhaps after viewing one too many home-repair shows, now feel themselves fully qualified to do any type of construction involving assorted power tools. Bunk beds are different. There is nothing more important than the safety and security of your family, and bunk beds present multiple opportunities for catastrophic failure.
What is the cost of the bed? Dollars don`t always determine quality. You can buy wonderful, well made beds for a great price. However, if the price is too good to be true, it probably is. That $159.00 bunk bed at your local discount store looks like a great buy but is it? I challenge you to see what you are really getting for your money. A bed that is made to withstand years of hard use and still look good will cost you a little more than a bed designed for young children to use a few years. If you are buying one to last through the years, make sure it has provisions for growing children.
How to Buy a Quality Bunk Bed. We all know that when it comes to bunk beds, quality matters. Cheap bunk beds can come apart and collapse making them a real safety hazard. When you go shopping, how can you differentiate between a quality bed and a cheap bed? Here are some tips to help you determine that.
