Weight Capacity - Mattress Foundation
The Weight Capacity of all of our
beds is 1000 pounds of evenly distributed weight. For our bunk beds it is
1000 lbs. per level. With our
tongue & groove construction
and extremely heavy duty design, it makes our beds one
of the sturdiest on the market and
will hold up to the toughest youth, teen or college
The weight capacity includes the weight of
the person plus the mattress.
All beds come with a
Mattress Foundation (bed
slats) that will fill the mattress area with a 3" gap between
the slats. Our slats are 1½" thick (some of our competitors have only 4
slats that are only 3/4" thick and
require you to buy your own foundation or bunkie board). The gap between the slats allows the mattress to breath
and air out, something that is definitely needed in a college dorm room

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
How deep are the desk and shelves.
The desk is 20" deep and all shelves are 7" deep.
Can the desk be installed on either side?
Yes. All options, desk, double bookshelf, single bookshelf, front
ladder, clock and accessory shelves may be installed on either end.
What is the length between the left and right
ladder ends? Beds are referred to
throughout our website by mattress size, a standard twin regular mattress is 39" x 75".
From the inside of the rungs of the ladder ends, the distance between them is
the same as the mattress length. So, for a 39x75 loft, there is 75" length
between the inside of the ladder rungs. For the distance between the
inside of the legs (corner posts), the distance for the Regular (75" mattress
length) mattress is 67". The distance for the Extra Long XL (80"
mattress length) is 72" and for the XXL (84" mattress length) it is 76".
What length bed do I need if I want to put a futon underneath?
You need to order the XXL length bed. We created the
XXL 84" mattress length (88" overall length) loft for customers that
want to put a futon or full size sofa underneath the loft. It is 4" longer
than most lofts on the market. The inside distance between the rungs is 84" and between the
legs is 76". On most futons when opened to the bed position, the
length of the bed section is 75" long. Make sure your futon when
opened into a bed will fit into
the 76" of space in-between the loft legs.
For lofts used in college dorm rooms, please read the following:
If your dorm room has fixed furniture that can't be moved, you should double
check the room measurements against our bed measurements to verify the loft will
fit into the room. Each dorm room layout is different
and the customer is responsible to make sure the loft will fit into the
available space. We will shorten the loft to fit your space if needed.
