When choosing bunk beds for your hostel, university, cub scouts or even an outdoor adventure park you have to choose wisely. It is true to say that it can be a minefield out there when searching for a metal frame bunk bed. To help filter your search on any search engine or any other means of finding bunk beds it pays to know the basics. What differentiates between a true adult bunk bed opposed to traditional bunk beds you find at your local furniture shop or even online.
What to look out for when looking for commercial quality bunk beds:
- Look at the overall dimensions. Will an adult have the ability to stretch out and keep his or her toes within the compartment?
- Total weight is a dead give-away. True commercial double bunk beds will weigh at least twice as much as normal bunk beds. Just think, they are holding more than one person.
- Study carefully the technical manufacturing specifications. Commercial double bunk beds will explain the manufacturing process and have all the dimensions and material in the product description.
Images and other details give a good clue as to the robustness of a bunk bed. Longevity of bunk beds should not be the sole concern of a landlord, indeed safety should be first and foremost. Hostel bunk beds should really be secured to either the floor or walls, most commercial bunk beds will have foot plates which are holed, ready for screwing to the floor especially when choosing Triple bunk beds which can exceed a height of 7 feet.
Triple bunk beds need to be attached to the floor, so check that this is part of the specification when purchasing.
Strong bunk beds are an obvious choice in a commercial environment. High quality military style bunk beds or metal bunk beds are fast replacing traditional timber bunk beds both for their strength and their aesthetics. Hostel owners are enjoying the benefits of choosing such a quality bunk bed, not only for the good investment but also choosing to give their guests just that little more. A good supplier will also have a number of accessories such as under bed lockers that provide additional floor space as well as a bit of security for their guests property.
Bunk Beds with Accessories
Apart from the traditional accessories, bunk beds with storage is becoming popular in such places as London where floor space is everything. Providing more for the guest entices good reviews from paying guests, as a few guests have commented;
“I enjoyed the benefits of the privacy curtains in my sleeping compartment of my bunk bed.”
Landlords in such a competitive industry realise that this is an important feature.
