A bariatric bed is generally described as a strong bed that is designed for larger, heavier people that will hold up to 300kgs / 47 stone. Basically they are beds for heavy people.

To be clear our bariatric beds are not medical beds. They are stylish strong bed frames built for the job. You don’t have to have a bed with an institutional feel just because you are a big person. Our range of reinforce beds will be a focal point of your bedroom, not a blot.

Our strongest bed is a wrought iron bed frame capable of withstanding weights up to 65 stone / 412kgs. These wrought iron beds have a strong welded mesh base with cross support bars for additional strength. There are 10 designs to choose from all with the option of high foot end or low foot end. All are available in black of ivory but can be finished in any colour subject to a surcharge. Another standard feature of these stylish bariatric beds is the option for the side rails to be fitted at either 32cm or 40cm from the floor. If this isn’t enough, we can also make these extra strong beds in lengths up to 7’0” / 215cm. It's not an indestructible bed frame, but it's not far off. Not bad for bariatric bed!

Reinforced Beds

We have a range of reinforced beds that are suitable and will hold up to 300kgs / 47 stone. These strong bed frames are available in 2 collections, solid oak or metal.

Solid Oak Beds

The solid oak frames conceal a steel support system. However, there is no compromise on comfort as these strong beds have sprung beech slats for the mattress to sit on. They are robust and made to the highest standards. Double and king size bed frames are available in the solid oak bed range. And with 3 designs to choose from, these are another great alternative to an ugly medical bed.
