We have noticed a lot of questions being asked about hostel beds/bunk beds and thought we would enlighten you about the differance between domestic and commercial ranges that are available on the market. There are a number of factors that differentuate between a domestic bunk and a commercial bunk; predominently it is strength factors that benefits the product.
A commercial bunk bed is strength tested to British European standards 'commercial testing', this means all welds and components must withstand huge pressures under testing and usage which a domestic bunk would simply collapse and fold. The first thing to fail on a metal bunk bed is indeed the welding or the side safety rails; very few companies fabricate to 'commercial strength'.
We at ESS Universal Ltd, manufacture only commercial products which comply to all necessary strength / entrapment hazard requirement tests. it may very well suprise the hostel owner how cost effective choosing commercial can be over domestic!
ESS Universal Ltd manufacture its very own Dallas single, double, triple tier range which carries a full real 3 year warranty unlike a domestic bunk bed which is a mere 1 year. We supply many hostel products inclusing waterproof memory foam pillows, water resistant high density foam mattresses which comply with commercial ignitions sources 'Crib 5'
Another major product is our very own under-bed storage locker which is on 4 heavy duty wheels (2 for each bunk) which saves space in a hostel room, simply roll out on heavy duty wheels, unlock, and lift lid to access this open cage system that dont need cleaning!!! be amazed at its strength http://youtu.be/AIutB7glhXo You can see all our products by visiting our website at www.heavydutybunkbeds.co.uk, buying for Africa?
