What Is a Triple Bunk Bed?

Triple bunk beds are incredibly safe and regulated by the CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission). Most triple bunk beds are sold with the mattress and ladder or stairs, but you can also purchase a triple bunk bed frame only and use any affordable mattress that fits.
There’s no standard size for the height or width of a triple bunk bed, but may range in height from 77 inches to 80 inches. Consider this when choosing the room and area where you’ll place the bed. Most triple bunk beds are around 80 inches in length as well and 60 inches wide. Make sure you leave between 33 and 36 inches of space between the top bunk’s mattress and the ceiling. This gives the occupant ample room to move around without the risk of hitting their head.
