ESS Universal safety and security tips

Side Safety guard Rails

ESS supplies as standard side safety guard rails and ladder; residential managers and students alike should never modify a bunk bed such as changing the components in a way that deviates away from the basic design.

For safety reasons all upper compartment sleeping surfaces have side safety rails installed as standard on every ESS university bunk bed.  It is the resident manager’s responsibility to have a set periodic safety inspection and if a bunk bed side safety rail is damaged, removed or not secured then that bunk bed needs to be decommissioned until that bunk bed is deemed safe to use.  ESS always aims to eliminate such issues by supplying as standard strong, sturdy side safety rails; just another reason why universities use ESS bunk beds

Students must not be able to dismantle a university bunk bed or side safety rail

Taking steps to ensure safety in a campus dorm

  • Placing student Bunk beds near a wall must not be more than 70mm from that wall which can cause an entrapment scenario.
  • Side Safety Rails cannot be removed without using a tool.
  • ESS designs it’s student bunk beds that also use the headboard and foot board as an end side safety rail.

Student items must never obstruct a bunk bed ladder, this causes an extreme trip hazard!  For student safety, the ESS student bunk bed is designed for the mounting and demount of the bunk bed with a vertical ladder system that attaches to the bunk bed by 4 points, the student should always keep the body as close to the ladder frame as possible and always keep at least one hand on the ladder at all times.

It is essential that a clear fire exit is established in a campus dorm residence, the law requires a ‘gangway’ of at least 750mm between a bunk bed set up when those university bunk beds are laid out parallel in any room.

University bunk bed Residence dorm Safety further points

It is essential for students who use university bunk beds to share the responsibility for the safe use of such beds and equipment in their dormitory. ESS has composed the following safety list as a guide only.

  • Never tamper with any component of a student university bunk bed
  • Never rearrange a bunk bed room position without the resident manager’s authorization
  • Never Position a bunk bed next to a window
  • Never position a student bunk bed near a ceiling light
  • Never position a bunk bed adjacent to a wall mounted air conditioning unit
  • Never modify a hostel bunk bed as this creates safety issues

ESS Design concepts

Why choice is governed by available space

In every university, school or learning institution there are expected number of students expected to stay on campus.

Strong personnel lockers preferred by universities

With today’s economics It is no secret that strong personnel lockers preferred universities, no matter what school or learning institution at some point the decision to purchase dormitory equipment will eventuate; dormitory bunk beds, items of school furniture such as school desks, chairs and school lockers need to be tough

Buyers for educational products are increasingly having to spread their budget when purchasing school desks, chairs, bunk beds and personnel lockers. in the past, buyers would source lower cost products that would very often be flimsy, not able to withstand the daily grind of the student or in the case of a summer camp, a camper who has little respect for bunk beds or lockers, this is why strong personnel lockers preferred universities, they get more bang for their buck!

Getting the right equipment is essential

A study by ESS Sleep Systems has shown that buyers for universities are now turning to commercial equipment suppliers for more robust equipment and are choosing heavy duty bunk beds over domestic models such as the IKEA type wooden bunk bed which really is designed for little Johnnies bedroom. Purchasers around the globe are adopting ‘Quality versus expenditure’ to ensure longevity of personnel lockers, dormitory bunk beds, school desks, chairs and even purpose made waterproof dormitory mattresses.

Queen size bunk beds

When searching for queen size bunk beds for summer camps or hostels looking for heavy duty bunk beds then why not visit ESS one stop shop manufacturer direct for big quantity only ESS has the Dallas or Missouri range which we believe is probably the strongest bunk bed range in the world


The Dallas D3 camp bunk bed

Made from 1 to 1.2 wall thickness steel, fully welded this D3 triple bunk bed is the tallest in the range. Each sleeping platform are rated up to 500 pounds, the wedge connecting system fully bolted surely makes these queen size bunk beds the most robust!

Let’s be honest, financing bunk beds mattresses and equipment is expensive, too many times Summer camps, scout camps, universities and even military receive inferior or bunk beds designed the domestic market; the end result are broken or bent side safety rails, sleeping platforms that become curved downwards.




How to avoid inferior queen size bunk beds

In this modern era most bulk purchasers surf the internet using the Google search engine, many key words are used, however right up there is the term heavy duty bunk beds, this term can bring lots and lots of results. As well as ESS Universal there are many companies that offer these so called heavy duty bunk beds but very often this term is misused, there are many kinds of beds and bunk beds from timber to steel, plastic to pod type so ESS Universal advises camp bunk bed purchasers to choose wisely when surfing for queen size bunk beds.

Look for the obvious signs, can you see the image close up? I mean very close up! As a good example have a look below at the close up images of the Dallas bunk bed detachable which shows a robust solid steel construction

Christian Camp and Conference Association – National Conference

We recently returned home from our two-day trade show in Nashville, TN.  What a great experience it was for ESS Universal ! We at met hundreds of Camp Directors [ & staff ] across the United States.  Not only were we able to display [ & show off ] our Adult Bunk Beds, but we were able to develop relationships from Alaska down to Florida.  It is great to see [ & hear ] the stories of camps thriving, and children [ & adults ] experiencing the great outdoors !  It was fun to be able to discuss our Heavy Duty Bunk Beds directly with the decision makers of these organizations.

Something to note:  It appears camps are beginning to lean away from wooden bunk beds, and more towards a metal bunk bed frame.  The issue of Bed Bugs has been the main reason for this.  Bed bugs prefer the warmth of the wood that they can physically burrow into, verses the metal frame that stays noticeably more cool.  We used this as the perfect opportunity to promote our Bed Bug Free Design.  We also heard more, and more stories about mattress issues.  The good news is, you can purchase mattresses pretty much anywhere, but the quality you are finding is limited.  Here at ESS we were proud to showcase our Waterproof Foam Core Mattress, with the polyurethane, machine-washable cover.  Even the competitors agreed it is a great product.

Camp Trends:

  • $18 billion dollar industry
  • More than 14,000 day and resident camps exist in the U.S. 8,400 are resident (overnight) and 5,600 are day camps.
  • Each year more than 14 million children and adults attend camp in the U.S.
  • Nonprofit groups including youth agencies and religious organizations operate approximately 11,000 camps, and 2,500 are privately owned independent for-profit operators.
  • In the past 10 years, there has been an increase in the use of international staff to expose campers to different cultures. Nearly 20% of staff are from other countries.

Thank you to all the great folks we were able to meet last week in Nashville, TN & the great members of the Christian Camp and Conference Association.  We cannot wait to serve you today, tomorrow, and beyond !
