Bunk Beds. Friday , September 29th , 2017 - 06:48:50 AM
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.
Last but not least, be sure to measure before you buy. Last year we sold a couple of log bunk beds to somebody in Montana. They absolutely loved the beds, but had bought two for the room and soon found out that only one could comfortably fit. Since we are in Michigan and they in Montana, it would have cost quite a bit to ship it back. They ended up selling the extra bed on ebay, but the problem could have been avoided with a bit of careful measuring up front.
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.
