Youth Furniture Safety Guide

From newborns to teenagers, when it comes to your kids, the most important thing is their safety. Accidents can happen, but the right furniture can limit or prevent many accidents all-together. We carry chests and dressers that are engineered to meet the stability requirements for residential furniture established by ASTM International (a world leader in product safety standards development). In compliance with the requirements outlined in ASTM F2057, we include tip restraint kits with the purchase of these chests and dressers. For extra peace of mind and to learn more about what to look for as you shop for beds, storage, and accessories for your child's bedroom, look at our helpful guide below.

Bedtime Safety

Safety Features to Look for when Shopping for Beds, Bunk Beds, or Cribs



entrapment hazards Entrapment Hazards Sometimes kids try to fit into small spaces and get stuck. This is why the Consumer Product Safety Commission adopted a mandatory safety specification for bunk beds in 2001. The rule reduces the risk of children getting trapped between the bunk and a wall or within openings in the bunk bed frame. All compliant bunk beds will carry a warning label as well as a label with the name and address of the manufacturer or importer, the model number, and the month/year of manufacture.

Safety-First Storage

Safety Features to Look for when Shopping for Youth Storage Furniture

Finishes are now heavily regulated and tested by third-party organizations to ensure that any lead found in finishes is less than 90 parts per million. For parents, even the smallest percentage can be worrying, so look for youth furniture with completely lead-free finishes.
