Basic FAQs Regarding Bunk Bed Safety

Posted on

The Bedroom Source's Maxtrix furniture system offers dependable, space-efficient solutions to all your concerns.

Several of my kids need to share a room. How can I fit all their beds into one room?

Bunk beds are a great way to free up space, especially when they are as easily adjustable as Maxtrix’s are. Do you need a different size bed below than you need above? Not a problem for Maxtrix! You can order a full size for one and twin for the other.

Small rooms and weird angles don’t cramp Maxtrix’s style either. Lower bunks can be arranged in all sorts of ways to fit any odd angle of your kids’ room. Extensions kits allow for traditional, L-shaped, and parallel bunks.

Can the beds be customized at all?

Even though your kids share a room, they can still have their own personalized space. Each bed can be customized to fit the individual styles of all your children. Whether it is tents and curtains for the little ones, or magazine racks and a color scheme woven through the pillows and mattress cover for the teens, each bed can fit the style your child wants.

To help prevent spills, try attachable trays or beverage holders for the younger kids (and maybe the older kids too!). Pillows and bolsters make beds more comfortable and personal, as well. Storage drawers can be added underneath for even more storage space, as well as a trundle bed.

But are bunk beds safe?

Maxtrix bunk beds can be flexibly arranged in many waysMaxtrix actually meets or exceeds federal safety standards. First, these beds can hold twice the weight amount U.S. safety standards call for. Second, Patented Rock Lock Leg Bolts (a solid steel bolt and screw mechanism) lock the beds together in a rock solid connection.

Third, to help children keep from slipping, ladders are built with extra deep steps and safety grooves. If ladders concern you, you can add a handrail or choose a staircase instead.

Fourth, the guardrails for the beds are some of the tallest in the industry, coming 11 inches above the mattress, which is actually taller than what Federal Regulations call for.

Lastly, none of the wood finishes contains lead. And just in case you do notice any defects in the materials, all main bed components are covered with a five- year warranty.

If you are looking for a bedroom arrangement that saves space and sleeps your children comfortably, look no further. Your children can sleep peacefully in Maxtrix’s sturdy bunk beds, and you can rest well too, knowing they are safe.
