Safety Considerations with the Maxtrix Furniture System, Part 1

Posted on

The magic of Maxtrix® isn't just the myriad possibilities but the fact that whatever initial combination and arrangement of furniture you choose for your child's bedroom, you can utilize the same pieces and re-imagine them (and add to them if you desire) as your child grows and his or her needs evolve. Even more important than versatility and options, though, is the issue of safety. How do Maxtrix pieces address this important issue? Let's take a look.

Quality That Translates into Safety

Each Maxtrix furniture piece is constructed from solid hardwood: sustainably harvested Aspen, Birch, and Maple. This premium composition combines with construction methods to offer a much higher degree of safety than many other leading children's bedroom furniture companies offer. In fact, Maxtrix pieces exceed the safety standards of both the US and EU. Drawer faces include solid hardwood frames as well as drawer faces and incorporate English Dovetail joinery. Each drawer also includes cross beams for reinforcement, allowing each one to withstand up to 100 pounds in weight. The dual under-mounted drawer glides add to their strength. Dressers also come with anti-tip kits, and drawers pass commercial grade tests, requiring them to withstand opening and closing 40,000 times!

Additional Safety Considerations

Maxtrix offers attractive appearance, but never at the cost of safety. When it comes to finishes, nc lacquer is used for Natural and Chestnut finish options, while acrylic paint is used for the White finish. All finishes get tested both by the suppliers used by Maxtrix and again by Maxtrix, checking for compliance to regulations regarding chemicals. Another issue relating to finish and appearance, several Maxtrix pieces include wood plugs that can be used to cover drill holes, if you so desire. Those plugs can be inserted firmly at the point of assembly, avoiding the potential for choking hazards.

All-Important Bed Safety

Maxtrix beds include features that make them extremely safe. Able to withstand up to 800 pounds (twice the amount required by law), your child's Maxtrix bed will keep him or her safe even if he does fail to comply with the rule about not jumping on the bed. (But shhh! Don't tell your child that!)

Your child's Maxtrix bed will continue to provide safety when raised to any height of Loft Bed, thanks to the thick steel connector bolts in the Rock-Lock™ System. By safely compressing the leg extensions onto the legs of the bed using set screws that wedge into the openings on the bolts, you can rest assured that the connection will be rock solid.

When it comes to Guardrails, Ladders, Staircases, and Slides, safety is definitely a huge part of the equation. We will cover that in our next post.
