Passionate companies often begin their journey in a garage. This is also where Peter Orinsky developed and built the very first children’s loft bed for his son Felix 31 years ago. It was very important for him to only use natural materials, provide strong safety features, clean workmanship as well as a high degree of flexibility to ensure long-term use. The sophisticated modular system has been so well received over the years that the successful family business Billi-Bolli emerged – complete with master craftsmen working in our very own Workshop in the east of Munich. By communicating closely with customers Billi-Bolli keeps refining and enhancing their children’s furniture range constantly. After all, satisfied parents and happy children are our greatest motivation. More about us…
Your child’s safety is our top priority. Most of our bed models for children are equipped with a high fall guard by default ⓘ, which exceeds the DIN safety standard by far. The most popular and bestselling bed models were checked by TÜV Süd and carry the GS (“Tested Safety”) mark (more information). If you are looking for even more safety for your child while they are playing and sleeping, you can choose from the following safety features as needed. You can attach ↓ Protection Boards around the bottom sleeping area as well as add our ↓ Rollout Protection. If children of different age groups share a bunk bed or a kids’ room, then the ↓ Ladder Protection or ↓ Ladder and Slide Gate will keep the curious young explorers safe, while also providing additional protection at night. The ↓ Inclined Ladder, with its wide steps, can be easily hooked into the existing standard ladder and will make getting in and out of bed easier. In this category you will also find our ↓ Baby Gates, which are a great feature for the lower sleeping level for your offspring.
Our Theme Boards add even more protection and therefore increase your child’s safety.
All Protection Boards essential for safety are automatically included with delivery. They enclose the raised sleeping level of our loft beds and bunk beds in the lower half of the fall guard area. If you wish to add another protection board anywhere, you can order them here and instal them to your loft bed or bunk bed even later on.
Pictured: optional protection boards and rollout protection around the lower sleeping area and additional protection boards in the upper area of the fall guard for the upper level (instead of theme boards). The protection boards indicated in green are already included by default in the delivery.
For example, you could also equip the upper half of the high fall guard with protection boards instead of attaching our theme boards all around.
If you wish, you could also equip the lower sleeping level of the Bunk Bed with protection boards – all around or just on individual sides. This not only increases cosiness, but it also ensures that pillows, cuddly toys etc. will stay safely inside the bed.
When choosing ladder position A ⓘ (default), you need the board in ¾ bed length to cover the remaining area of the long side of the bed. Ladder position B ⓘ requires the board in ½ bed length and the board in ¼ bed length. (The board in ¼ bed length is sufficient for the Pitched Roof Bed.)
In case you also attached a slide to the long side of the bed, please contact us for the suitable boards.
For the lower sleeping area of bunk beds we recommend the rollout protection for the long side facing the front.
If your child is more of a restless sleeper at night, we recommend our Rollout Protection. It consists of an extended midfoot, longitudinal beams and a protection board and it will protect your child from accidentally rolling out of the lower sleeping level. The Rollout Procetion is an alternative to Baby Gates once the kids are not that little anymore.
The Ladder Protection prevents curious younger siblings, who are still in the crawling stage and should not yet be at the top level, from climbing up. It is simply attached to the rungs of the ladder. Removing the Ladder Protection is easy for adults, but not for the little ones.
Made of beech wood.
Which ladder protection variant is the right one, depends on whether you have round (standard) or flat ladder rungs and whether your bed has a ladder with a pin system (standard since 2015).
Are your little ones sleepwalkers and dreamers? Then the removable Ladder Gate will secure the ladder area of the upper level during the night.
The Slide Gate secures the slide opening of the upper sleeping area in the same way. So you can rest assured that your offspring will not accidentally get out of bed while half asleep.
Both gates are only recommended as long as your child is still unable to unlock and remove the gate on their own.
If you select white or a different colour service option, only the horizontal beams of the gates will be treated with colour/white. The bars will be oil-waxed.
The Slide Gate cannot be combined with the Slide Ears.
If particularly smaller children struggle with the vertical standard ladder, then the inclined ladder with its wide steps is a comfortable alternative. They can also crawl up on all fours and – and get back down while sitting on the bottom. The inclined ladder is simply hooked into the existing standard ladder of the children’s loft bed.
If a new sibling is expected and only one bedroom is available for all children, then young parents are instantly enthusiastic about this option: Equipping the lower level of the bunk bed with our versatile Baby Gates. So they only need one bed combination to be all set, even covering the school years. You can also take advantage of this asset for your first child and equip our Loft Bed Adjustable by Age with Baby Gates for the first few months.
The Baby Gates for the short bed sides ⓘ are screwed to the bed, all other gates are removable. Gates for the long sides have three removable bars in the middle. The bars can be individually removed by adults. The gate itself remains hooked in.
For the Loft Bed Adjustable by Age and the bottom bunk of the Loft Bed Laterally Staggered as well as the Corner Bunk Bed, gates are available for the entire or half of the mattress area.
With the Bunk Bed Baby Gates can be attached to the bottom bunk. Choosing ladder position A ⓘ, the gates will reach the ladder and enclose ¾ of the mattress. A mattress with measurements of 90 x 200 cm will offer a sleeping area of 90 x 140 cm.
With our Baby Crib the gates are included by default.
Too confusing? We are happy to help you!
Height of the gates:59.5 cm for the long sides of the bed ⓘ53.0 cm for the short sides of the bed ⓘ (here they are attached higher, by the depth of one beam)
In case the gates or the gate set of your choice is not selectable, please contact us or use the “Additional notes and requests” field with the option “Request quote without obligation” during checkout step 2.
*) To install the gates at the Corner Bunk Bed or the Bunk Bed Laterally Staggered, some beams need to be longer. The extra charge for this is not yet included in the price for the gate set; please ask us about it. The price depends on whether you order the gates together with your bed or later.
**) If you would like to attach the gates across ¾ of the bed length of a bunk bed that was made before 2014, please contact us. They do not come with any pre-drilled holes in the slatted bed base at ¾ bed length for the additional vertical beam. In this case, the beam will be attached differently.
