Big Strong Beds

Strong Beds»

As a nation we are getting bigger and lockdown hasn’t helped us. Stuck at home with the temptation to snack, the pounds just keep piling on.

The word obese conjures up images of unhealthy big people, which in some cases is true. However, many people with a BMI (Body Mass Index) of over 30, the level at which people are categorised as clinically obese are big fit people. You only need to look at rugby players.

Big people need beds for heavy people and Big Brand Beds can help. We have a great range of strong bed frames that have all been weight certified. The bed frames have undergone rigorous testing in accordance with regulations laid down in LOLER (Lifting Operations & Lifting Equipment Regulations). They have been tested to hold 300kgs, 47 stone.

So which is the best bed frame for a heavy person? We've got a great choice of strong beds which include wooden and metal bed frames. If you need an extra strong bed then check out the wrought iron collection
