Quality & Safety
Maxtrix Kids beds are built to last! Constructed with solid hardwood and designed to exceed both US & EU safety standards, you can be confident knowing your child is safe and secure.
The Rock Lock™ Leg Bolt is a patented solid steel mechanism that enables the application of continuous pressure between the leg extensions and the Core Bed legs. It is a Patented mechanism and uniquely developed to lock all Maxtrix® beds into a Rock Solid state.
Ladders & Weight Capacity
Maxtrix® Ladders are are built to hold the weight of both kids and parents. Ladders also feature safety grooves to help prevent slippage and handrails for additional climbing safety. All ladders are tested and conform to current safety regulations. All Maxtrix® beds are built to withstand more than 800 lb of weight, more than 2x US Safety Regulations.
Maxtrix® Dressers feature solid hardwood frame construction. Solid wood drawer faces and high quality English Dovetail construction. Our Drawers are re-enforced with cross beams helping them to withstand 100 lb in weight.
Knot-free, premium grade, solid hardwood construction! Maxtrix® products are constructed from sustainably harvested Maple, Birch and Aspen.
Maxtrix is the world's largest furniture system, which means that each bed is made up of various components (think Lego Building Blocks for kids furniture). These pieces are completely reusable in that a bed design today can be reconfigured into a completely different design tomorrow. There is no need to ever “throw away” a Maxtrix kids bed, which is why they are much more environmentally friendly than many other choices. Just like recycling glass bottles gives you many uses from the same container, the Maxtrix system is designed to use components over and over again, leading to less waste and environmental impact.
All Maxtrix® beds are built to withstand more than 800 lb of weight pressure. US Safety Regulations require bunk and loft beds to withstand a 400 lb dead weight test, so you’ll sleep easy knowing we’re tested at 2x the standard!
Guardrails & Mattresses
16” high guardrails on all Maxtrix® Bunks & Lofts - the highest in the industry! When paired with one of our low profile 5” MaxMattresses, you’ll have 11” of safety guard height (more than double the regulation requirement).

|THE BEST||AND THE REST|
|Safety||Industry-leading: 16" guardrails, angled ladder option and wide steps. All bunks exceed US & EU Safety Standards.||Decreased safety with 12" or shorter guardrails. Straight ladder and thin steps can be unsafe for smaller kids.|
|Warranty||Maxtrix guarantee: All bunks come with a 5 year warranty.||1 year warranty or none at all.|
|Customization||Unparalleled variety of options: 5 sizes, 3 heights and multiple entry options (straight or angled ladders on end or side, or staircase).||Limited in sizes, heights and entry options.|
|Quality||Solid Hardwood Materials: Sustainably sourced premium grade hardwood and thick, solid wood components.||Pine or chipboard: Dents/chips easily, knots in wood weaken structure and can lead to breakage.|
|Construction||Solid Connection: Patented Industrial grade Rock Lock hardware to securely bolt beds together.||Thin dimensions, unsecured connections. Weak hardware does not withstand wear and tear over time.|
|Weight Capacity||Weight Capacity: Maxtrix standard beds withstand 800 lbs & XL beds 2,000 lbs. Each roll has 14 slats, so no bunkie board needed.||Half the weight capacity, 400 lbs. May require extra accessories like bunkie boards.|
|Versatility||Reversible Entry Options: Ladder (end or side) or staircase; straight or angled ladders have wide grooved steps & extra anti-entrapment step.||Limited Entry Options: Thin ladder steps can be uncomfortable and straight ladder unsafe for smaller kids. No reversible custom entry options.|
|Long-term Usage||Modular bed system with endless possibilities: Bunks can be separated into 2 beds & reconfigured over the years as needs change.||No sustainability: more likely to grow out of and need to be replaced, or end up in trash within a shorter period.|
