Size Matters: A Blog Post About Bed Posts

Size Matters University Loft Bed PostWhen it comes to college and university dorm room furniture, students know how to dish out the abuse. To withstand those rowdy coeds, University Loft pulls out all the stops to make our student furniture the strongest and most durable around. For example, we use solid wood that’s stronger than Northern Red Oak. And we use the best construction methods and joining techniques – like English Dovetail joints – so the ULoft furniture that goes together stays together. But there’s one ULoft difference that might be easy to overlook even though it is a key part of the University Loft student furniture strength advantage: oversized bed posts.

You see, at University Loft Company, our dorm room bunk beds typically use bed posts that are – cross-sectionally – a full 3 inches by 3 inches. That’s a lot of solid wood bulk to support dorm room sleepers on the top and bottom bunks. (And believe me, the last thing you want if you’re on the bottom bunk is a bed end failure.) The good news is that with University Loft student bunk beds, you can rest easy. Whether you go with the hefty 3 x 3 or the more economical, yet still super-strong 2.5 x 2.5, your ULoft bed is up to the wear and tear of daily dorm room living. It’s just one more feature – and one more way – that University Loft Company builds in superior value for longer life in the dorm room.
