Peace of Mind: Bunk Beds Designed with Safety First

We understand that as a parent, the pleasures of choosing bunk beds for your children can be tempered by concerns about the safety of their construction. Rest assured, that’s why safety is at the heart of everything we do at Strictly Beds and Bunks. To safeguard your children, the UK has stringent safety regulations in place for bunk beds, known as BS EN 747.

What does EN 747 Cover?

  • • Solid Construction – Bunk beds must be sturdy and stable, with no sharp edges that could cause injuries.
  • • Secure Mattress Fit -Mattresses need to fit snugly, preventing any dangerous gaps.
  • • Safe Slats – The spacing between the supporting slats is crucial to prevent children from getting trapped.
  • • Essential Guardrails – The upper bunk requires guardrails on both sides to prevent falls. The regulations also specify the height of these rails for maximum safety.
  • • Sturdy Ladder – The ladder must be securely attached to the bed, with appropriately spaced rungs for easy and safe climbing.
  • • Added Safety Requirements –The latest updates to EN 747 include additional safety checks for the strength of platforms and stairs, features common in modern bunk bed designs.
