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 www.heavydutybunkbeds.com 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

Best bunk beds university campus

There was an article I read in the Guardian about universities and bunk beds the crux of it is choosing best bunk beds university campus accommodation in their halls of residence the article goes on to explain that actually, the reason why that some students aren’t able to stay in halls of residence is because of a lack of space that means in extreme cases, students are being given privately rented accommodation and even hotels!

Living on campus

Living on campus is a huge part of university life and off site students are disappointed and in some cases find it difficult to build as many relationships. Universities such as Exeter are taking the situation into their own hands and are converting single rooms into doubles by installing bunk beds just to cope with the demand for places. A good example of the type of bunk beds universities are using is the ESS Dallas range of commercial sleep systems, these are probably the best bunk beds university campus

bunk beds charities

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

This true camp bunk bed range is designed to add many accessories to ensure your guests receive the comfort they will blog about!

camp-heavy-duty-bunk-beds

  • Under bed storage security lockers
  • Privacy curtains
  • Water resistant blue mattresses
  • Memory foam water resistant pillows
  • UP1 utility power panel to charge up their gadgets

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 full set with privacy curtains and under bed storage lockers.

Adult hostel bunk beds manufactured to last

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.
