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 !

metal loft bunk beds deter bed bugs

If you want to avoid bed bugs the best thing to do is to avoid getting them metal loft bunk beds deter bed bugs when there are no holes for making cosy nests

What do bed bugs look like anyway?

bed bug
Adult bed bugs are broadly oval, and the size of an apple or melon seed. They are a brownish color or red if they have recently fed.

Now that you have made their acquaintance there are a few things that will help you avoid bed bugs.

1. Metal loft bunk beds deter bed bugs

Who can blame them, I just spent two weeks in the Bahamas much nicer than the drizzle. They breed faster when it is about 80 degrees, it takes approximately a month and a half for babies to turn into adults.

2. Bed Bugs are Travelers

They love hitching a ride. In your suitcase, or on your clothes. They don’t mind going it alone, and are very social and tend to congregate with other bed bugs.

3. Bed Bugs are Mainly Active at Night

They are active usually when humans are sleeping. They like to find hiding places during the day close to beds. Those hiding places tend to be dark crevices, wooden skirting boards, air ducts, mattresses, wooden bed heads, etc. Therefore they do not have to travel far to feed.

5. Bed Bugs Hate Metal

Metal bunk beds are on their all time hate list. Why? Because metal bunk beds are cold. Remember they like the warm. A wooden bunk bed gives bed bugs a cozy place to live but metal bunk beds doesn’t give them anything to live in.

How to help avoid bed bugs in hostels and holiday accommodations.

  • Clean up your clutter. Provide storage that is easy to clean like under bed storage lockers.
  • In busy hostels/hotels purchase foam mattresses with washable covers. Covers allow you to wash them at a very high temperature.
  • Provide mattresses without the cord around the side where bed bugs commonly burrow into.
  • Metal bunk beds provide fewer places for bed bugs to hide.
  • Ensure there are no unplugged holes in any component as below image explains

holes are plugged to prevent insects entering and nesting

when metal is prepared for painting, a prosperous solution is used when the component is dipped, this solution has to drain. The hole is plugged after painting which prevents insects nesting inside ensuring the ESS statement metal loft bunk beds deter bed bugs

A quality bunk bed which can truly be called a hostel bunk bed is so called because the bunk bed has gone through and passed commercial testing and complies to all safety standards required by all western nations. commercial bunk beds must comply with stringent entrapment hazard standards and to pass the commercial strength test, a weight is dropped onto the sleeping platform no less than 500 times which the welds must survive.
