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.
What is the bed made of? Solid wood, metal, or a combination of the two is best. Avoid particle board like the plague. Hardwoods, such as birch, cedar, and maple, are best. If your choice is a metal frame, select one that is made of a heavier metal like steel and with a larger diameter of tubing.
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.
If you get a pine bunk bed with metal frame, there is a way to give the metal frame that log look when the covers are thrown back. These are decorative half logs or rails, not to be confused with the safety rails that go around the top of the bunk bed. The top safety rails are always included with the log bunk bed, but the decorative half rails are optional and just for looks.
Some examples of twin full bunk beds for sale presently, are the Pine Wood and metal futon style. This bed is convertible to allow seating when the lower bed is not being used, and costs $299 brand new, which is a very reasonable price. The mattresses are sold separately and the unit is a breeze to assemble. The Twin Over Full Honey Trundle Bed, is simply amazing in that the bottom converts into a full bed with its own trundle bed which pulls out easily beneath it. This makes three beds and is great for sleepovers with friends or cousins. The frame is made from solid Brazilian pine, the finish is safe for children, and the entire unit only costs $495. That is a great price for two twins and one full sized bed. The ladder to the top bunk has child friendly rungs. When shopping for the mattresses, you only need buy one standard full and two twin sizes.
