University Loft Does Colleges a Favor by Using Solid Wood in Student Furniture

University Loft student bunk beds can withstand 4 tons of pressureThe phrase, “Do me a solid” has been around for a while. The Kramer character utters it in a 1991 episode of the Seinfeld sitcom, but apparently the phrase dates to nearly twenty years earlier among musicians. It can be translated, of course, to “Do me a favor.” And that’s exactly what University Loft student furniture does for colleges, universities and students by using solid wood in our student housing and dorm room furniture.

Why is using solid wood so important? Three reasons:

Solid wood student furniture from University Loft is strong

How strong is the Hevea Brasiliensis wood that University Loft uses in its dorm room furniture? Stronger than Northern Red Oak, as shown by independent testing at Federal Testing Laboratories. In fact, a 3-drawer student chest endured more than 200 cycles of pressure at 350 pounds while a national competitor’s comparable product made from Northern Red Oak could not withstand even a single cycle of pressure application above 300 pounds. Not content with those numbers, ULoft has proven that our solid wood student bunk bed can support 4 tons of pressure!
