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

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.

Effective Hostel Bunk Bed Planning

Run your Hostel Efficiently using Commercial Bunk Beds

Running a budget back-packer hostel at maximum efficiency is essential, take time to plan each room keeping in mind relevant local laws. The planning of a hostel that accommodate the paying public needs to have a good balance between the hostel owner and guest. Effective hostel bunk bed planning includes using adult bunk beds which are of commercial quality.

Planning and making the most of your rooms

  • Choose a hostel bunk bed that will give your investment some sort of longevity and complies to relevant safety standards in your country
  • Using the dimensions of the commercial bunk bed do a basic floor plan indicating where doors and windows are – allow the room to have natural light
  • When positioning bunk beds on the floor plan bear in mind that the law says there must be a clear walkway between each commercial bunk bed of at least 700mm
  • Avoid placing bunk beds over a light switch, a guest does not like reaching into a bunk bed compartment to turn a light on especially when the compartment is occupied
  • Ensure the entrance door can open fully, a door that hits a bunk bed on opening can wake a sleeping guest
  • A true commercial bunk bed will have some way of securing the bunk bed to either the floor or wall, this ensures the bunk bed is not re-positioned by guestsShowing the metal plates used to secure a bunk bed to the floor.

Planned correctly, your hostel will provide a safe and comfortable sleeping environment for your guests and give you the hostel owner peace of mind. For more detailed advice get in touch with your local council or even your commercial bunk bed supplier who will be more than happy to advise you on the legalities of planning your hostel.
