Bunk Beds. Friday , September 29th , 2017 - 06:54:18 AM
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.
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.
