Bunk Beds. Friday , September 29th , 2017 - 06:49:46 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.
And even before your children start clamoring over who gets to sleep in the top bunk, take a few minutes and go over the safety features of your new bunk beds. We recommend not allowing children under the age of six to sleep in the upper bunk. The access to the upper bunk is also important. Please take a moment to teach your kids how to safely use the ladder of the bed. Also, consider using a children`s night light. The extra light provides additional security, both for the child, and for you.
This cannot be said enough. The safety of your children should be your primary concern when constructing your bunk beds. Various national groups have been set up to monitor and test the safety of bunk beds. If you`re interested in a particular brand, ask if it meets the voluntary safety guidelines of the American Standards of Testing and Materials (ASTM) and the minimum safety standards of the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). Both of these groups have been around for a long time, and their approval indicates a quality, tested product. Make sure your mattress fits properly. A space greater than three inches should not be tolerated.
