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.
Method of Construction. Kids abuse their furniture. They jump on it, jump off of it, hang from it and generally test all furniture to its limits. A bunk bed purchased for a kid's room will have to be able to withstand a great deal! Taking time to consider the method of construction of the bunk bed can ensure the bed will continue to provide a safe place to sleep - even after months of abuse.
