Safety & Stability: We offer very sturdy and heavy duty Loft & Bunk Beds that will hold up to the toughest youth, teen, college and adult environment. Since I initially built these for my own children, safety and stability were a primary concern. We designed them extending the legs above the mattress allowing for the safety rail to go the full length of the bed and securely attached to the legs. We designed our beds following the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) Loft Bed Bunk Bed Safety Guidelines and all beds (including college dorm beds) have Safety Rails.
Youth Safety Rails: For youth beds the number of safety rails required is based on the thickness of your mattress. Two (2) safety rails are required for mattresses up to 8" thick and three (3) safety rails for mattresses up to 16" thick. The bottom safety rail will be below the top of the mattress and the top safety rail will be above the top of the mattress. The safety rails are attached to all four sides with an opening to enter the loft where the ladder is positioned. The safety rails also serve as a Pillow Stop.
The safety rails rise 5" above the top of the mattress. We can also optionally make them go 10", 15" or 20" above the top of the mattress by adding more safety rails and using taller legs.

College & Adult Safety Rails: We also supply safety rails for lofts and bunks used in college dorms, fraternity/sorority houses, cabins and camps and we request that you do install them.
With many college students having grown up with Full (Double) or Queen Size beds at home, the narrower Twin-XL mattresses provided by college dorms can be very confined and chances are greater for rolling out. We highly recommend installing the safety rails on all our beds.

Our loft, bunk and high rise beds were designed utilizing the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) safety guidelines. The upper level should not be used by children under the age of 6. Only use a properly sized mattress on the bed. If modifications or alternations are made it must conform to the CPSC Document #071 requirements. The customer must assemble this bed to ensure the top of the safety rail is at least 5" above the top of the mattress and there are no openings around the mattress area that is greater than 3-1/2". If this bed is to be used in an institutional environment (dorm room), a single safety rail must be installed on the front (long) side, and if the back side is not firmly up against a wall, a back safety rail must be used. If this bed is not in an institutional environment, then safety rails must be installed on all 4 sides with an opening to be able to climb in. The customer must follow the assembly instructions.
Since College Bed Lofts cannot control the quality of the assembly nor modifications made to the loft, Eastbay Solutions Group, LLC, web: CollegeBedLofts.com will not be held legally liable from any accidents, injuries or property damage resulting from the use of our beds. No horseplay, jumping or leaning over the edge is allowed on our beds. You must use the ladder to climb up into the upper bunk. Because of the very nature of sleeping on an elevated surface, there are obvious and inherent risks involved due to falling. This risk is enhanced when consciousness is limited or impaired due to sleep, lack of sleep, illness, consumption of alcohol, taking medications, inhalation of smoke/fumes or similar factors. The loft is an all natural wood product and will burn when fire or sufficient heat is present. Elevated beds may also create obstructions or impediments that increase the hazards encountered in a fire or other emergency by hindering evacuation or fire suppression activities. Customers who choose to use our bed shall be deemed to have assumed all risks of accidents, injury and property damage associated with their placement and use.
As a general safety precaution do not place the loft near any window, door, closet, fire/smoke alarm or ceiling fan. All college residence halls have specific requirements regarding the use and placement of lofts and students are required to follow all college requirements.
