Rickety is not a word you want to describe your college student furniture; luckily, if you have University Loft furniture in your dorm room, you’ll be much more likely to use words like solid, strong and sturdy to describe your dormitory furnishings. Why do we say that University Loft college student furniture is solid, strong and sturdy?
Well, University Loft dorm room furniture is solid because it starts with solid wood. And not just any solid wood, but a special kind of environmentally-farmed hardwood. We even take the solid approach a step further by using oversized 3-inch bed posts in our college loft beds.
Next, University Loft student furniture for the dorm room is strong in part because that hardwood also has been proven stronger than Northern Red Oak in independent laboratory testing. And you know that if our hardwood furniture for college is stronger than oak it has to be super strong!
Of course, that strength also helps University Loft college furniture be sturdy, too. But we go further by using state-of-the-art manufacturing and joining techniques. Our desk and dresser drawers, for example, use English dovetail joints to resist separation of the backs from the sides. And for our dorm room loft beds, University Loft uses closely spaced end rails and tightly fitting frame tabs and bed end slots for maximum contact and minimum wiggle.
Rickety? Nope, not with University Loft college student furniture. Solid, strong and sturdy? You bet.
