There are a lot of stories regarding the danger of bunk bed (kinderhochbett) for children. Usually, it is used to save a lot of space and often cheaper. These beds are fun and enjoyable and come in different styles, colors, materials, and designs. Here are some tips to ensure the safety of your children:
Make sure that it meets the standards as set by your country. Always look for the certification, sticker or label on your beds. These standards meet the required construction and design that is set in your country. When you already purchase the bed, make sure that you carefully read the instruction manual before you begin screwing it together. Upon constructing the beds might be dangerous so make sure to follow the step by step.
When purchasing bunk bed, it comes with rails and ladders. Do not forget to put the rails especially on the upper bunk. Never neglect the importance of these especially at night. Also, check the bed ladder to be child-friendly.
Always consider the age of your kid to sleep in this bed, especially at the upper bunk. Most manufacturers do not recommend children under age of 10 or less to sleep in the top bunk. On the other hand, consider also the age of your bed. Do not forget to check if the foundation of your bed is still strong. You might need to repaint this or screw it again to reinforce it
It is always the best idea to set a rule for your children. Post in their room so they can see it every day. These include what they must and must not do in the bed. It can be no playing in the top bunk and there should be many children on the upper bunk.
