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

Christmas toys on the floor?

Under Bed Storage Lockers Prevent Trip Hazards:  Keep the kid’s bedroom floor clear this Christmas!

Every Christmas we all like to open those presents and gifts, especially children. It is not uncommon for parent’s to utter the words “Clean up the toys you are not playing with  before you open anymore.”  New toys, clothes, and shoes end up scattered around the house creating a dangerous trip hazard.

The Solution

Under bed storage lockers:  These cleaver wire storage locker systems have a lockable lid so a child can lock items away from their siblings and keep their room clear. At 500mm wide by 500mm long and 250mm deep they are perfect for shoe storage! The wire cage system allows airflow preventing odor and never needs cleaning – Now that’s got to be good! Remember those sticky sweets stuck in the bottom corners? Or that horrible grime build up?  Those days are over with ESS Universal’s under bed storage lockers!

These lockers are a commercial product used by backpacker hostels for adult bunk beds.  They were designed for the Dallas Single Over Single hostel bunk bed and used by hostels and universities for their dormitory bunk beds saving valuable floor space.

Tough and aesthetically pleasing

The under bed storage lockers cage system is fully welded with bright chrome plating meaning it has strength as well as aesthetics. To test the under bed storage lockers we threw it off a high balcony and rolled it down a hill with a team member sitting on it.  It’s heavy duty wheels withstood the test just like the cage system itself!

We even lowered the front end of a car on the under bed storage locker and it survived!  Visit our website for full details of these heavy duty under bed storage lockers.

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

One tip to establish whether a bunk bed is commercial grade is if it is designed to include 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.

Bunk bed manufacturers

Whether you run a Christian camp, a backpacker hostel or a scout camp you will do yourself a big favour choosing bunk bed manufacturers. However it is important to choose the right bunk bed manufacturer, as many as 90% of bunk bed manufacturers produce beds for domestic use, not very good for a commercial environment such as hostels.

Longevity out of your bunk beds

Your guests will remember the comfort you provide as well as the comforts that you did not provide!. Purchasing the correct quality hostel bunk bed and associated equipment is essential; travelers staying at budget accommodations are increasingly expecting more comfortable out of bunk beds and expect accessories such as charging devices for such things as tablets, smart phones and other technical gadgets.


Dallas D2 in a real situation

Quality bunk beds should have quality, comfortable mattresses, mattresses that are a high density foam because a foam mattress will contour around the shape of the body and next generation to memory foam which can become uncomfortable hot during sleep.

Another important factor to remember when offering comfortable bunk beds in a hostel or summer camp situation is noise, traditionally it is expected that a metal bunk bed will squeak and even groan! Choosing quality bunk bed manufacturers of commercial use typically design and manufacture bunk beds with strength and robustness. Very often it is the joints of the metal bunk bed that become noisy so ensure you choose care free triple bunk beds or double bunk beds that are designed for the commercial sector.

Quality bunk beds explained

With all the bunks currently on the market that claim the title of quality bunk beds, a close look is needed if those bunk beds are required in a commercial environment. A commercial quality bunk bed is so very different from a domestic quality bunk bed; this can be determined in the design as well as the raw materials used to produce a product that can be truly called a hostel bunk bed or indeed a commercial quality bunk bed.

So what makes a commercial quality bunk bed so different from a domestic quality bunk bed? Most metal bunk beds manufactured are aimed at the domestic household, very few bunk beds on the market can be considered as a hostel bunk bed. The thickness of steel in a metal domestic bunk bed is thinner than that of a commercial hostel bunk bed, usually the metal thickness in a domestic bunk bed is a mere .8 of a millimetre wheas a commercial quality bunk bed is a massive 1.2 to 1.5mm thickness, this can be shown in the sheer weight of the commercial quality bunk bed which is typically twice the weight of a domestic quality bunk bed. Why is thicker metal important? when the metal is thicker, the heat from the welding allows the two metals to fuse together better, the heat produced from a welding machine allows the weld to fuse without melting away the actual steel, this produces a stronger more durable joint on the quality bunk bed. The first breakage on any metal bunk bed is the welds, using thicker steel avoids this, only a true contract metal bunk bed should be used as a hostel bunk bed which makes perfect economic sense.

whenever you choose a hostel bunk bed, always look for square tube rather than round as basic engineering physics shows that square tubing with flat sides has far superior strength than a quality bunk bed made with round tubing. another point to look out for is the cross members on each sleeping platform of the hostel bunk bed, always ensure you choose a quality bunk bed that has at least 4 intermediate cross bearers which will support the weight of the occupier without sagging or bending in the middle. Again square tubing with a metal mesh is the strongest way for a hostel bunk bed.

in many hostels using quality bunk beds you will find that the safety rails which surround the metal bunk bed are bent downwards, this is normally caused by the metal thickness and a design which is for domestic quality bunk beds only. With different users on a regular basis, a hostel or holiday camp should really use the correct quality bunk bed.
