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

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!

  • 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 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.

Under Bed Storage Lockers | Safety

Childresn toys stored in an underbed storage locker from Heavy Duty Bunk beds
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.

Under Bed Storage Lockers | Benefits

Save space with this amazing under bed storage locker.  Why go up when you can go under?

Imagine having an under bed storage locker to guard your treasurers from your nearest and dearest. Anyone that has a brother or sister knows how annoying it is to get something from your room, only to find it has vanished.

Under Bed Storage Lockers for all your goodies

We designed our under bed storage lockers to roll neatly under our range of Dallas bunk beds.

Children use them to keep their toys tidy, but also to keep curious siblings from playing with something they shouldn’t.

Wire Mesh Keeps Things Clean & Fresh

A fundamental feature of the under bed storage lockers is the wire mesh. This is important for hostels, boarding schools or even universities, where more than one occupant resides in the room.

Mechanics and cleaners take advantage of these storage lockers to store cleaning rags.  The air flows through the lockers making it the ideal storage solution.

 

ESS Sleep SystemsUnder Bed Storage Lockers Built to Last:

  • 4 Heavy duty wheels
  • Lockers glide from under the bed with ease
  • Adjustable backstop to stop the locker from fully coming out from under the bed
  • No grime build up inside
  • ‘Lock n leave’ system keeps items for the key holder
  • 1 year guarantee
  • 250mm depth means the locker will glide under most beds that are on legs

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.
