Big Strong Beds for the obese

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. We’re getting fatter and fatter. We’re a nation of snoring, tossing, turning, sleep deprived, overweight people that are needing a good supportive strong beds. Our strong Beds are the solution for the obese. They are built to hold up to 65 stone / 412kgs and are designed to be used in a standard home.

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

Reinforced Divan bases

If you prefer a traditional bed, we have a great value reinforced divan base that is certified to take up to 75 stone / 450kgs. We also have a solid divan base. This is also a reinforced bed that will hold up to 300kg, 47 stone. Relyon divan bases can also be reinforced. Using hardwood and wider top rails they are suitable for bigger people, but not as strong beds as our reinforced divan bas or soliod divan base. Alternatively a Hypnos divan base might be what’s needed. They offer a service to reinforce their bases. The price is £200 more than the standard. This price is correct at the time of posting this blog but may change. All weight guides include the mattress.

We also stock Dunlopillo mattresses which are our most resilient range of mattresses as they are a 100% pure latex mattress. However they are not recommended for the above weights.
