Have you ever made a request of someone and they responded by saying it was “doable”? Well, if you were to request college dorm room furniture that is strong, sturdy and built to last, at University Loft we would say that it is, indeed, doable. In fact, it is so doable that we do it day after day as we make the strongest college furniture around.
University Loft student furniture is so strong and durable for several reasons. First, we use the strongest solid hardwood material, an environmentally farmed timber called Hevea Brasiliensis that has been shown to be stronger than Northern Red Oak in rigorous independent laboratory testing. This superior hardwood material even has graining that looks similar to oak, so its beauty is not just in its strength.
Next, we go above and beyond by incorporating strengthening features that other college furniture manufacturer’s might not. Things like corner blocks in desks and dresser drawers to add long-term stability. Things like oversized bed posts for added vertical, loftable strength. Things like English dovetail joints in desk and dresser drawers to keep the panels from pulling apart under normal usage conditions.
Finally, we use keen attention to detail in our manufacturing processes. Not only do we use state-of-the-art tools and equipment to manufacture our college furniture, we also have rigid inspection processes to make sure that the furniture that leaves our Greenfield, Indiana manufacturing facililty is worthy of the name University Loft!
It all adds up to college furniture strength and durability that’s not only doable, it’s the University Loft way!
