The mattress, box spring, bed frame, head and footboard are the main components of a modern day bed. If you planning to buy a new bed, it pays off to meticulously look for durable materials and safety features such as in metal bed frames.
Each part of our house must comply with safety issues and bedroom is one of them. It is a fact that we need to doze as a way of recharging the lost energy our body had during the day. That is why a peaceful and comfortable sleep is a must. Mattress for example can hold thousands of bacteria and molds that can be detrimental to ones health; they can also cause suffocation and can even pose a serious fire threat. Aside from mattress, bed frame components have its own set of hazards too.
Materials on which bed frames are made off can be harmful or toxic. Especially for wooded bed frames as most of them are made from particleboard or plywood can sometimes contain formaldehyde or other toxic chemicals; aside from that since they are made from wood they are also flammable. And finally all bed frames pose some threat of abrasions and contusions to the body. To help minimize these threats you may want to consider purchasing metal beds with metal frames instead of wooden frames.
For consumers out there who want value and long-time usage of beds opt to choose metals beds compared to wooded beds. Heres some of the reason:
Metal Beds are not flammable
metal bed frames are more durable than wooded frames, thus will less likely to collapse
metal bed frames does not contain toxic components
But Metal Beds are not perfect either, for those who prefermetal beds look for a bed frame that offers corner guards on the frame. These plastic caps cover the sharp edges of the frame and protects shins and feet from cuts if you happened to bump up against them while walking by the bed. Aside from plastic caps look for cross support bar too. They are usually pitied fit in the corners the bed frame. This adds extra support, making bed stronger. The third characteristic to look for is a system of connecting bolts. These bolts, or pins, should be designed to secure the sides of the frame securely together.
