Specifications has the following sections, any of which you may go to directly to by clicking on it:
DIMENSIONS & DRAWINGS
All beds are 69 ¾" H total to the top of the safety railings and 59 ¾" H to the top of the upper mattress framing.
The upper mattress sits inside the frame 7". The standard safety rails are exactly 10" above the frame. Depending on the thickness of the mattress you are using, this is usually sufficient. If you are using a thick mattress or would just like the safety rails to be taller, you can choose our tall safety rail option at check out (16" instead of 10").
The Stairway Bunk Bed does not need a box spring. The bed comes with plenty of strong Bunkie boards to support the mattress by itself. There are 47 inches of "head space" between the lower Bunkie boards where the mattress sits and the bottom edge of the upper Bunkie boards.
Each bed in the Redwood grade can support up to 750 lbs, and in Douglas-fir, up to 900 lbs total weight.
Each bed, regardless of Mattress size or wood grade chosen, can support over 1,000 lbs total weight if necessary. Upper bunks are designed to easily handle up to 500 lbs capacity. If you require more weight for any reason, just let us know and we can add additional re-inforcement for a small additional charge.
|Bed Size||Approx. Weight|
|Twin Over Twin||280 lbs.|
|Twin Over Queen||340 lbs.|
|Double (Full) Over Double (full)||320 lbs.|
|Double (Full) Over Queen||380 lbs.|
|Queen Over Queen||405 lbs.|
|King Over King||425 lbs.|
Please note: stated weights are approximate and may vary depending on the wood grade chosen.
- Standard mattress sizes are:
Twin: 75" x 39", Double: 75" x 54", Queen: 80" x 60", and King: 80" x 76".
- Drawings above show a twin over queen bunk bed. Widths will depend on bed sizes chosen.
The Stairway Bunk Beds are overbuilt to take plenty of abuse either from kids or from excess weight. The upper bunks are rated to 500 lbs per the standard design.
If you need the beds to have an even greater weight capacity, please contact us and we can make further structural re-inforcements as needed that will not add too much to the cost.
Assembly Instructions for: The Stairway Bunk Sets
All You Need is a Few Tools and a Friend.
Assembly is best done by two people and usually takes about half a day to a day, depending on size. Pergolas need a ratchet wrench, a hammer and a ladder to put them together. In some cases, you might need a drill to attach the posts into concrete. As with all our products, we preassemble pergolas in our shop to ensure everything fits together. All hardware is included and all parts are clearly labeled before it is shipped. We also include detailed step-by-step instructions.
Take a look at our assembly instructions below for specific details. If you plan to pour concrete to hold the posts, the project will require an additional half day prior to assembly. Please do the concrete pour a few days prior to assembly to allow the concrete to cure.
Special talent is not required to re-assemble our pergolas. But, if you would like help, just let us know. We have our own team for installations in California, Nevada and Southern Arizona and a network of local contractors we recommend for farther afield.
Care: Your Forever Redwood Furniture will last for decades in year-round weather without maintenance.
Depending on the wood grade you choose, even with harsh year-round outdoor conditions, you can expect your furniture to last from ten to forty years without maintenance of any kind.
Being outside year-round is rough on any woods finish. The surface absorbs UV rays, pollution, constant variations in moisture and temperature and it also oxidizes. This is why most wood just doesn’t hold up and the surface color slowly changes towards a silver patina over the years. But, with Forever Redwood, you don’t have to worry. The silver patina is surface deep only (less than 1/64") and is not indicative of decay. Your set will last decades and is not compromised in any way by the surface color change. For example, we keep our display items as is without refinishing to show off this natural aging (we like the patina!).
Although Forever Redwood is maintenance-free, we recommended you take a few minutes as needed to clean by either hosing down and/or brushing/dusting away accumulated debris (no soap or chemicals needed). If you’d like to keep your set looking its best for decades, please go to: Care and Finish.
