Bunk Beds. Friday , September 29th , 2017 - 06:50:36 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.
The other alternative to hold the mattress up is called a Bunkie board. A Bunkie board is basically ¾ inch plywood cut to the size of the box spring. It sits inside either the metal bed frame, or the wood bed frame, and supports the mattress. If you have a box spring you don`t need a Bunkie board, but if there is not a box spring, the Bunkie board is what supports the middle of the mattress. We sell Bunkie boards if people want them, but a lot of people just cut their own. It`s up to the buyer.
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.
