When most people think of bunk beds, their first thought is some cozy, colorful set in a kid’s room. Many don’t know that bunk beds are good for more than just toddlers and tweens. While still very cozy, heavy-duty bunk beds are commercial-grade furniture built for durability, safety compliance, and function.
Whether it be a fire station, college dorm, or military base, specific scenarios call for space-saving bunk beds. In these situations, bunk beds are perfect because they make it easier for many people to occupy the same sleeping area. With that said, these beds need to be strong enough to hold the weight of full-grown adults. Below, we’ll be sharing the features that make durable bunk beds perfect for high-use commercial settings.
What Features Make Durable Bunk Beds Great for Intensive Settings?
If you’re choosing bunks beds for employee housing or a military base, you want to look for the following features that create a heavy-duty bed:
Strength and Durability
The most important aspect of a heavy-duty, commercial-grade bunk bed is its durability. You want to choose strong, durable bunk beds that can hold the weight of a full-grown adult. How do you know if a bunk bed is going to be strong enough to do this?
Most importantly, you need to look for beds built with certain materials. ESS Universal bunk beds are made with industrial-strength materials, including welded metal tubing and mesh panels supported by six box section cross members. These materials make ESS bunk beds able to hold up to 500 pounds.
When choosing bunk beds for intensive, high-use settings, you want to make sure they meet specific safety standards. That is especially true if you’re selecting beds for an environment like summer camp, where younger individuals will use them.
ESS Universal bunk beds meet the highest safety standards, including both US and UK entrapment hazard standards.
If you’re setting up a large number of bunk beds in an intensive setting, you don’t want to deal with complex assembly. ESS Universal bunk beds are easy to assemble, making for a quick set-up. In fact, each bed takes approximately 20 minutes to build, with minimal tools required.
Resistance to Wear and Tear
When you install commercial bunk beds, you probably plan on having them for many years to come. No one wants to turn around and replace the beds they just purchased. You’re a business, after all, and that type of equipment replacement would not be very cost-effective. That is why commercial-grade bunk beds are built to last.
ESS Universal’s durable bunk beds are resistant to wear and tear thanks to the commercial-grade steel tubes welded on all four sides. They are also resistant to water, pests, and UV fading. That means that your heavy-duty beds will look brand new even after years of use. Plus, just to make you feel better about your purchase, ESS Universal offers a three-year structural warranty with all its bunk beds.
