Triple sleeper bunk beds or Triple tier bunk beds; their benefits and their safety
Equipment Supply Solutions (ESS) explain what you need to know when choosing triple sleeper bunk beds.
Around the world many bed designs have come to market, some beds amazingly cleaver and some just works of art from a creative mind. Unfortunately what also comes to market are bed designs that are not only unsafe but can also be considered as extremely dangerous! In place are international safety requirements which are voluntary and are in place to hope that the manufacturer will do the right thing and design to safety entrapment standards.
Here is some safety information, basically the requirements for safety are:
- Any gaps in an assembled bunk bed must not exceed 75mm, this will avoid a child getting his or her head trapped
- Any ornate posts on each corner of a bunk bed must not protrude no more than 30mm, this avoids clothing getting snagged when dismounting the top compartment
- Side safety rails must be fitted on both sides of the top compartment to prevent falls
- Never allow a bunk bed to be further than 70mm away from a wall when placing next to that wall, children fall between and become trapped
- any component of a bunk bed must be fixed and a tool must be used to remove that component
- Never allow a child under the age of 6 to occupy the top platform of any bunk bed

ESS ALWAYS encourages safe equipment use, the ESS triple sleeper bunk bed can be great when as you can increase space and even triple your occupancy at a place such as a backpacker hostel, however ESS has gone one further with all it’s hostel bunk beds, all ESS bunk beds have foot plates so bunk beds can be bolted to the floor, especially a triple sleeper bunk bed, the ESS triple tier bunk bed is 2200mm high so bolting to the floor is essential, alternatively securing to a wall will suffice. After all our children can be tough on any bunk bed!
