Many experts say that metal bunk beds are unsafe. This is because metal beds are not as sturdy and tend to wobble, dent and bend over the years due to weak joints. Essentially, a metal bunk bed may save you money but is not a good investment in the long run. Wood bunk beds are not without their problems. A good rule of thumb is the heavier the bed, the more likely it is to be sturdy and safe. Even with hardwood beds, screws and wing nuts can work loose over time. A properly designed bunk bed will have ample support braces to keep some of the pressure off of the bed's joints.
Specialized Beds - Those who are handicapped have their own high sleeper beds to accommodate them. Most hospitals today utilize these designs since they allow comfort for patients who have difficulty moving, muscle pains, and back problems. Other designs also come with padded railings to add protection for more fragile patients.
