Expand the space in the bedroom with this loft-bunk bed. This Tubular Steel Twin Size Loft Bunk Bed in Black hoists a standard twin-sized mattress 55 inches above the floor, leaving room for a second twin bed, a desk, or a dresser. Fun for kids and adults alike, the bed frame’s simple design suits most bedroom décor. A sleek black-powder coat finish endows the sturdy steel bed frame. With a maximum weight capacity of 250 pounds, the bed employs 22 tubular slats to support the mattress. Integrated ladders on both ends of the frame allow one to climb up, while 15-inch high guardrails provide a buffer on all sides to keep the occupant from falling out of bed. To guarantee adequate guardrail protection, Walker Edison advises using a mattress with a 9-inch thickness or less. The bed frame has been tested to ensure that it meets the latest safety standards, and two L brackets come with the frame for bolting the bed to a wall. If adding a second bed to create a bunk bed, use a bed frame without a headboard or footboard or place the second twin mattress and box spring directly on the floor to fit below the elevated mattress. The second bed might also be placed perpendicular to the upper bed for a better fit. For comfort, the user may opt to add padding to the ladder rungs. The bed frame necessitates home assembly and comes with necessary hardware, tools, and instructions. Mattress and bedding are not included with the loft bed. Assembled, the bed measures 80 inches long by 44 inches deep by 68 inches high. This item weighs 84 pounds upon shipping.
