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

Bunk beds charities non-profit organizations offering accommodations are on the rise adult bunk beds can definitely help resolve space issues. Registered charities have discovered that using commercial quality products such as true hostel bunk beds the organization are benefiting from longevity which comes from the bunk bed commercial structural design. Traditionally it was very near impossible to have a quality contract bunk bed as well as good aesthetics; most metal bunk beds resembled something out of Alcatraz or some Victorian prison. ESS Universal has changed this by combining strength and good looks with the Dallas heavy duty bunk bed range.

Introducing the Dallas bunk beds charities range

Using these accessories the contrast against a jet black bunk bed is very appealing. Of course the Dallas can be painted in any RAL color depending on quantity. Because of these aesthetic changes, the charity or hostel concerned can now obtain a real contract system that is pleasing to the eye.

Strength and quality = good investment

The saying goes ‘you get what you pay for’ this is of course true; however, again ESS Universal has broken these rules too and has supplies such organizations as:

  • Boy scouts
  • Diocese
  • Boarding schools
  • Missionaries
  • Refuges

These organizations are benefiting from the quality of a true military bunk bed that looks great and at a price that is affordable.

Contract bunk beds vs. cheap domestic bunk beds

When a charitable organization has saved money over a long period of time or relied on a very strict budget for a big investment into bunk beds for charities and equipment; choosing a domestic model at your local or national furniture store may seem a good investment but sadly after 6 to 8 months that investment is laying on the front lawn unusable due to a domestic bunk bed being in a commercial environment.

It is wise to choose the correct equipment for the correct application, military bunk beds are the answer, they may cost just a little more but the longevity speaks for itself.

Here’s a quote from a former student.

‘My accommodation was awful, the facilities were dilapidated and had not been updated since what felt like the 50’s, with eighty odd new boys a year you could feel that the bunk beds had been used and abused. The slats were MDF and were not only easy to break but in some cases were not fit for use, after all; if a little 11 year old boy could break them imagine what it was like with an eighteen year old sleeping in there’

Safety and your Hostel bunk bed

We know that many of you probably see metal bunk beds as a great way to free up some floor space with a modern comfortable design that will last through the years.
Visiting children, on the other hand, are undoubtedly dizzy with excitement at the very concept of furniture that looks like a ready-made playground! Naturally this can make parents anxious, so we thought it might be helpful for us to come up with a list of do’s and don’ts to put up in your hostel.
How to Reduce the Risk of hostel Bunk Bed Accidents
Choose your location carefully
Place the bed in a corner: This will offer at least two walls to avoid falls. Entrapment in a is a real hazard with any quality bunk bed, the correct distance between a wall and a bunk bed is 70mm or less. Never allow a child under the age of 6 to occupy the top platform of a hostel bunk bed.

Don’t put the bed near a ceiling fan:
You can probably understand the reason not to put a hostel bunk bed near a fan or other hanging objects. There is an extreme hazard behind it.

Set up a night light near the ladder.
Climbing down may be tricky if it is completely pitch black at night. Why not set up a dim light at the bottom of the hostel bunk bed to allow the user a safe descent for those late night toilet stops.

Clear the floor area.
There is a risk of people falling out of bunk beds and hurting themselves on objects scattered across the ground. These hazards are minimized due to our bunk beds having stronger than normal safety rails across to keep the sleeper tucked in throughout the night, however, if the user were to fall out of the bed it is important to have clear space, as not to fall onto sharp or hazardous objects.

Check the Equipment.
It goes without saying that when you are assembling the bed, check all of the components for breakages. Also don’t try to be macho and build it without instructions, you will probably find that it will take you twice as long! Finally adopt a maintenance routine, periodically check tightness of fixing bolts, a loose joint will accelerate wear!

Educate the children
Who wouldn’t love a readymade playground where you can sleep too? However it is important to educate your children about safe bunk bed use and the importance of using the ladder rather than climbing up and jumping down, as this could cause serious injury.

Metal Bunk Beds Verses Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are a major issue in the United States and around the world and once they’ve moved in it’s extremely expensive and difficult to get rid of them.

bed bug

This is a typical example of a domestic mattress joining rib, which is a perfect hiding place for bed bugs, this is why ESS Sleep Systems contract waterproof mattresses are a good deterrent against these little critters.

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.

Metal bunk beds are cold and bed bugs like warm places.

Bed bugs are primarily nocturnal creatures and feed on warm-blooded victims.

Traditionally, hostel bunk beds were made from wood which is a naturally warm material.  Wood bunk beds expand and contract in dry and damp seasons creating gaps and crevices in the wood joints which provide the perfect hiding place for bed bugs! Metal bunk beds do not offer the same comfort and warmth for bed bugs to thrive.  The cold steel deters bed bugs from settling down during the daylight hours and then feasting on their victims at night.

Metal bunk beds are favorable but no guarantee

Bed bugs travel in groups of seven to ten.  They will climb a wall, navigate across the ceiling, and drop onto a bed. Metal bunk beds help avoid many bed bug issues but are not a guarantee. Bed bug prevention is critical for all individuals and organizations.

Tips to avoid housing bed bugs in your home, hostel, or hotel suite:

  • Have strict rules when guests arrive ensuring they do not unpack on the bed
  • Use metal bunk beds rather than wood
  • Use commercial water resistant mattresses that have a removable cover that can be washed at high temperatures
  • Use commercial water resistant foam pillows that have a removable cover that can be washed at high temperatures
  • Avoid using carpet wherever possible
  • Vacuum rooms, hallways, and mattresses daily

Adult Bunk Beds | The Difference

What makes quality adult bunk beds?

Size is an important factor in identifying an adult bunk bed verses a youth bunk bed.  Bunk bed manufacturers typically manufacture adult bunk beds that are 6 feet long.  However, average size bunk beds do not fit average size adults.

Bunk beds that are 6 feet long do not allow extra room when an adult is fully stretched out.  Organizations and individuals are seeking high quality adult bunk beds.  Many hostels and summer camps are turning to the Internet to search for true commercial adult bunk beds.  High quality commercial adult bunk beds and triple bunk beds are quickly becoming a necessity.

Commercial bunk beds that fit the bill

Individuals and organizations alike are discovering commercial adult bunk beds via online search engines.  Commercial bunk beds are manufactured for strength as well as adult size.  However, this caliber bunk bed is not available at retail furniture stores.  Metal bunk beds combine strength and size characteristics and are often used by the militaries and universities for their longevity.

Benefits of choosing commercial over domestic bunk beds:

  • Strength in design and materials
  • Will cater for most adults up to 6’4″
  • Will bolt to the floor adding sturdiness
  • Will usually have a longer warranty period
  • Military bunk bed design increases strength

 

Adult bunk bed accessories

Most true commercial adult bunk beds have the option of privacy curtains giving the user a reasonable amount of privacy.  Other accessories include water resistant mattresses, foam pillows, and under bed storage lockers.
