Bunk Beds Articles

Has it happened? Have your kids started begging you for bunk beds? Well, you are definitely not alone! Bunk beds are practical and functional for many shared bedrooms. But how can you be sure they are ready for this fun sleeping arrangement? Here are some insider tips that you may want to consider before making your decision!
Bunkbeds and beds are by far the most dangerous piece of furniture for children in the home. Designs of bunkbeds are regulated in the USA, Canada, and the EU. Unlike many of our competitors', all of our bunkbeds meet these standards. In UK bunkbed safety is governed by the Bunkbeds (Entrapment Hazards) Safety Regulations 1987 Act.

While it's common sense that bunk beds should be safe before use, approximately 36,000 bunk-related injuries happen to children every year in the United States, according to Nationwide Children's Hospital. Most such injuries are from falls while sleeping or playing, which means they probably could have been prevented if safety precautions had been followed. Optimal safety involves not only ensuring that the bed is structurally sound and free from hazards, but that children are instructed on proper bunk use. In other words, jumping on the top bunk is not a good idea, nor should several kids hang out on the top bunk at the same time.
