This European Standard specifies requirements for the safety, strength and durability of bunk beds and
high beds for domestic and non-domestic use.
It applies to bunk beds with a height to the upper surface of the top bed base of 600 mm or more above the
floor and to high beds with a height to the upper surface of the bed base of 600 mm or more above the floor.
The loads and forces in the strength and durability tests apply to beds with an internal length greater than 140
cm and a maximum bed base width of 120 cm.
The dimensional requirements are intended to minimise the risk of accidents, particularly to children.
The strength and durability requirements are intended to represent use by one occupant per bed.
Safety requirements for other products included in a bunk bed/high bed, for example a table or storage
furniture, are not included in this standard.
This European Standard does not apply to bunk beds and high beds used for special purposes, including but
not limited to prison, the military and fire brigades.
