Are Adult Bunk Beds Sturdy for Large Adults?
We want to show you how our beds are built to fit into your life seamlessly.
In short answer, yes, adult bunk beds are sturdy for large adults! It’s no secret that one of the biggest concerns for all bunk beds is safety. If you’re a larger adult, or you plan to sleep more than one person in each bed, you may be especially concerned about the sturdiness of your bunk bed. Not all bunk beds are created equal, so it’s important to find one that is sturdy enough to hold your weights and is constructed well enough that it holds up over time. If you’re searching for a high-quality adult bunk that is sturdy enough for adults, here are a few things to look out for.
Check the Weight Limit
The first thing to consider when checking if a bunk is sturdy enough for you is the weight limit. While many adult bunks only offer a few hundred pound weight limit, our adult bunk beds feature a 2,000lb weight maximum. This incredibly high weight limit gives you peace of mind that you’re safe and secure in your bunk. It also allows you the comfort of knowing that you can fit more than one adult in the bed without worrying about overweighing it.
Consider Your Bunk Bed Size Carefully
While checking the weight limit of your bunk is crucial, it’s also just as important that you’re choosing the correct size bunk to optimize your safety and ensure that your durable bunk will give you enough room to sleep comfortably. Here at Francis Lofts & Bunks, we offer larger size adult bunk beds including a Queen and King bunk. The former gives you 88 inches of length and 61 inches of width, while the latter gives you 88 inches of length and 77 inches of width across. Not only does the size of the bed offer more comfort, but it also allows for more than one adult to share a bunk, making it ideal for vacation homes or small apartments with your significant other.
Make Sure It Is Well-Constructed
While most bunks are made of wood, our beds are constructed with heavy-duty industry grade aluminum. Our intense dedication to quality-constructed beds is what sets us apart from other brands. We combine simplicity, durability and affordability for a smart, contemporary design. In order to create the most secure bed possible, a 4-foot square aluminum frame is tied together with strong X-braces and the bottom bed frame in the bunk, for the ultimate in sway strength, support and safety. This dedication to the craft is a crucial aspect of making certain that your bunk bed is sturdy and secure for any adult.
Check-In on the Safety Standards
You wouldn’t buy a car without checking on its safety records and ensuring that it has passed the appropriate safety standards, so why should your bed be any different? In order to guarantee that your bunk is sturdy enough for an adult, you’ll want to make sure that it is certifiably safe and conforms to the latest product safety standards.
Opt For Top-Notch Safety Accessories
When it comes to adult bunk beds, the safety for a lot of people is all about the accessories—we’re talking side rails, a headboard and a ladder. When choosing your bunk accessories, it is important to choose bunk counterparts that are compatible for an adult to make sure that they are as sturdy as possible. Our beds feature a secure ladder that’s clipped to the aluminum and will not move when climbing up and down the ladder. You can also opt for a staircase, which will give you more security when entering and exiting the bunk.
In addition to a ladder or staircase, you can also opt for safety guardrails on one, two, three or four sides of the bed. This will give you or your family added protection to ensure that you don’t fall or roll out of the bed.
There’s also no need to worry about how the guardrails will look on your bed, as we designed the guardrails with a contemporary look and feel to ensure they will be versatile in any room. The last add-on to consider is a headboard. An upholstered headboard adds an element of comfort to the loft bed and bunk bed. It can be added to both the upper and lower platforms of the bunk bed. Since the headboard is made of thick foam, it is very comfortable to lean up against, and adds an extra level of safety to the bed.
