Weight Capacity: Weight capacity of all of our
beds is 1000 pounds of evenly distributed weight. 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, college
and adult environment.
The weight capacity includes the weight of
the person plus the mattress.
Desks: The desks are available in both MDF and Solid Pine. We have
a Short Desk that goes the width of the bed and a Long Desk that goes the length
of the bed. We attach a sturdy frame underneath the desks to prevent it
Shelving: All shelving and backboards are made from
, a recycled material. We use
because it is very smooth, uniform
and takes paint well and doesn't warp over time. We are often asked about
whether we can make the shelving out of solid pine. We have experienced
problems over time with cupping, crowning and warping with wide pine boards and we no
longer offer them.
Unfinished: The beds come unfinished, sanded and ready to be
. We do recommend finishing
the bed as unfinished wood will dry out (or
absorb moisture in very humid climates) and surface cracks may
appear over time. Surface cracks will not affect the stability of the
loft. From our customer surveys it appears that most lofts used in
homes are painted or stained and most college lofts are left unfinished. For staining the loft, we recommend using
PolyShades all-in-one stain and
finish, it does a real nice job on all the boards including the
If you are looking for more environmental friendly products, consider using
Ladders - Vertical & Angled: The beds have built in vertical ladders at
each end. This gives the bed extreme stability and allows you to climb up
either end. We also have
Angled Ladders which may be attached to the front (long side) or at the footboard
end of the bed. With the angled ladder the 2x4 rungs are
positioned flat giving you a larger surface area for climbing
up and it is much easier on the feet. The Angled Ladder
is pre-assembled and ready to be attach to the loft or bunk bed. It may
be installed either on the Front (long side) or at the End (footboard) and
either on the left or right.

Assembled Within 30 Days: We require that the
loft be assembled within 30 days of delivery. If left unassembled for a
longer period of time, under some climate conditions unfinished wood may shrink
or warp and some of the pieces may not fit properly. For example, our beds
are manufactured in the Northeastern US, a cool and humid environment. If it is
shipped to the Southwestern US, a hot and dry environment it will quickly dry out.
If it is not assembled, this rapid drying could warp the wood.
The warranty is void if the loft is not assembled within 30 days of arrival.
Note: Mattress is not included.
Can I use your Loft Bed in my
college dorm room?
sample of existing dorm bed
Yes. Our loft beds were designed to be used
in college dorms and off-campus apartments. Most
college dorm beds can be disassembled and the metal spring frame and mattress
used on our loft. For example, with the sample dorm bed pictured here,
you can remove the
headboard and footboard and place the metal frame and mattress on top of our bed
slats. You can store the headboard and footboard behind the loft against the wall and out
of the way.
Lofts are not fire-retardant. If your college requires
fire-retardant wood we recommend you use a fire-retardant coating, click
for more information.
