Understanding contract beds
Contract beds are specially designed beds for commercial use – they’re typically found in hotels, B&Bs or virtually anywhere which accommodates guests. These beds go through rigorous testing procedures so that they meet incredibly stringent health and safety regulations. Contract beds must comply with BS7177:2008 regulations.
While most of us understand that contract beds are found in the hospitality sector, they’re essential for practically all commercial environments including boarding schools, university accommodation, holiday camps, hostels and more.
That’s not to say domestic users can’t enjoy the comfort and quality of a hotel contract bed – increasing numbers of homeowners are making good use of these beds to enjoy safety, peace of mind and the additional comfort afforded by a bed designed to last.
Who should own a contract bed?
Any business which hosts guests is required by law to own contract beds. Your company could be breaking the law if your current beds aren’t compliant with ‘Crib 5’ law. If this is the case, you could be putting your guests – and your business – at risk. Without contract beds, any liability insurance you have will be invalid in the event of a fire, for example. In addition to this, you could face a hefty fine from the Health & Safety Executive for not complying with the law and putting your customers at risk.
Are there different types of contract bed available?
Just like regular beds, contract beds come in a wide variety of styles to suit all guests. The most popular type is the divan bed. These are designed with the hospitality sector in mind and are manufactured from a sturdy wooden frame which exceeds the demanding requirements of the public environment.
However, if you’d like something more in keeping with your décor, many of the contract divan beds we have available can be fully customised to your requirements – the choice of colour, finish and the overall height of the bed can be adjusted, and in addition to this you can expect a contract mattress and a sturdy platform top base to provide long-lasting and comfortable performance for many years.
Is it possible to purchase a contract mattress separately?
If you only require a new mattress, that’s not an issue. We supply a full range of contract mattresses which are designed for hotel beds. Each of the mattresses we supply is fully ‘Crib 5’ compliant, which means you can purchase with confidence, safe in the knowledge that your new mattress adheres to all commercial health and safety regulations.
Are contract beds specifically for hotels?
While these types of bed are designed with commercial establishments in mind, that doesn’t mean you can't enjoy hotel-style luxury in your own bedroom. If you’d like to experience the comfort and quality of a professional bed at home, our luxury contract beds could be the solution.
What about convenience?
There are other reasons apart from comfort that may persuade you to purchase a contract bed. For example, if you’d like the flexibility to convert your room from a double to a twin, then a zip and link bed is the ultimate solution. These can be linked together to create a super-king size bed, or split to become two single beds when required. For hotels and B&Bs, this means that adjusting individual rooms to suit the requirements of guests has never been easier or more efficient.
