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 32 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…
Every boy’s and every girl’s dream: a play bed with a slide! Up, down, up, down … until everyone, tired from all the sliding, falls right into their pillows. Even small morning grouches will find it easier to get up by sliding into the day. Our ↓ Slide for the Billi-Bolli loft bed is suitable for assembly heights 3, 4 and 5 and protrudes approx. 190 cm into the room. For smaller children, we offer practical ↓ Slide Ears for additional safety. If the room depth is not sufficient for a slide to be mounted directly to the bed or the play tower, our ↓ Slide Tower will come to the rescue. It is often the ideal solution and can even be equipped with ↓ Slide Tower Shelves.
A play bed with a slide can almost replace the playground – at least in bad weather – and sparks real joy among all children. Rushing down the slide is such a thrill that kids simply cannot get enough of all the sliding fun. This way they also get enough exercise in the children’s room and sleep well and tight at night.
The attachment positions suitable for the ladder are also available for the slide, see Ladder and Slide. You can also attach it to the Play Tower.
The Slide protrudes approx. 190 cm (slide for assembly heights 4 and 5 ⓘ). If the room depth is not sufficient for a slide to be mounted directly to the bed or the play tower, our Slide Tower is often the solution.
Please let us know during checkout step 2 at which position you want to attach the Slide (A, B, C, D). If you want the ladder on position A and the slide on position B or the other way round, please also specify which of the two possible B positions you refer to.
When ordering the slide together with a bed, the fall protection will receive an opening for the slide at the point you have chosen. With the parts included in the scope of delivery, the bed can then only be set up in the installation heights that are also suitable for the slide you have chosen. The slide opening can also be closed again with a few additional parts (to be purchased from us), e.g. if you no longer use the slide or want to set up the bed later at heights other than those suitable for the slide.
When purchased together with a bed configuration marked as “in stock”, the delivery time extends to 6 – 7 weeks (untreated or oiled-waxed) or 7 – 8 weeks (white/varnished) because we will then custom-built the entire bed for you with the respective adjustments. (If ordered together with a bed configuration, which we will manufacture for you anyway, the specified delivery time does not change.)
If you want to upgrade an existing bed with the slide, additional parts are required for the slide opening. Please enquire about the price.
On the Corner Bunk Bed and the corner versions of the Both-Up Bunk Bed, the slide cannot be mounted at position B.
On beds with a mattress length of 220 cm the slide cannot be attached to the long side. However, with the Slide Tower you can attach a slide at a 90-degree angle (L-shape) even to beds with a mattress length of 220 cm.
If you choose white or a different colour service, the colour/white will only be applied to the sides. The surface of the slide will be treated with oil-wax.
When attaching a slide, we recommend opting for a mattress with a 12 cm maximum depth because of the distance to the top of the mattress, e.g. our PROLANA mattresses or our foam mattresses.
Slide Ears can be fastened sideways, at the top of the slide, for additional protection. They are only required for very young children, who can hold onto them for extra support at the start.
You think the kids’ bedroom is too small to make your child’s slide dream a reality? Then take a look at our Billi-Bolli Slide Tower. It enables the installation of a slide even in rooms that would otherwise be unsuitable. Depending on the assembly height, the required room depth is reduced to 284 or 314 cm (Slide Tower 54 cm + Slide 160 or 190 cm + exit opening 70 cm). Your child can reach the slide via the Slide Tower, which is attached either to the bed or the Play Tower. You can see all the possible positions in the illustration.
The tower shares the same system of pre-drilled holes as the beds and is therefore easily adjustable in height. At night, a Slide Gate can secure the slide opening at the upper level.
Some children’s rooms are simply too small for a slide, unfortunately. In these cases, our Fireman’s Pole can be the best option, as it only takes up a bit of extra space.
The Slide Tower can only be used in conjunction with a bed or a play tower. The prices stated here apply when ordered together with a bed or play tower. Please specify in the “Additional notes and requests” field during checkout step 2 at which position of the bed or play tower you want to mount the Slide Tower; the bed or play tower will come with an opening at this position. If you wish to close this opening at some point (because the bed is mounted without a slide tower), you can do this with just a few parts, which you can get from us later on.
You would rather upgrade an existing bed or play tower with the Slide Tower? No problem, only some additional parts are needed for the opening. Please contact us to enquire about the price.
The floor of the Slide Tower is always made of beech.
On beds with a mattress length of 220 cm the Slide Tower can only be attached to the short side ⓘ.
Below the slide tower platform, you can attach several shelves. This way you can turn the slide tower into a shelf and utilise the space for several purposes.
Potential number of shelves below the platform, depending on the slide tower’s assembly height:
Assembly height 5: maximum 3 slide tower shelves
Assembly height 4: maximum 2 slide tower shelves
Assembly height 3: maximum 1 slide tower shelf
Order quantity 1 = 1 slide tower shelf, including 2 required short beams for attachment.
The selection of wood type and surface only refers to the beam parts essential for assembly. The shelf boards are always made of untreated or oil-waxed beech Multiplex.
To close the slide opening at night, we offer the matching Slide Gate. You can find it in our range of safety accessories.
This is how to turn getting up every morning into an adventure! With a Billi-Bolli slide you easily extend the kids’ bed into a play bed – and your little rascals will love it. But which bed is suitable for a bed slide and what should you consider when assembling? Here you will also find out how to make the loft bed slide safe for your children.
Like our bed models, a Billi-Bolli kids’ slide will wow you with its masterful workmanship, high-quality materials and all the available combination options. For it is possible to combine the slide with all our bed models, even with our Comfy Corner Beds, Bunk Beds or Both-Up Bunk Beds. As a prerequisite, the bed has to be mounted at assembly height 3 (54.6 cm) at least. This way the slide is suitable for children aged approx. 3.5 and above. With assembly height 6 (152.1 cm) and above it is no longer possible to attach a slide.
Generally, the slide can be attached to the same positions as the ladder. You can attach the slide in the middle of the short side of the bed, as well as to central and lateral positions on the long side. The Corner Bunk Bed and the corner variant of the Both-Up Bunk Beds are exceptions: Here you cannot instal the slide in the middle of the long side.
If you order a loft bed together with a matching kids’ slide, please state the desired slide position. This way we can manufacture an opening in the fall guard directly at the appropriate spot so that you can instal the slide there with ease. It is also possible to convert an existing bed.
Our children’s slides, just like the matching beds, can be designed and styled according to your own taste. Whether you prefer an untreated surface or a bright colour, we make sure to fulfil your request.
A loft bed slide requires a bed to be mounted at assembly height 3 to 5. The room characteristics are also important for your purchase decision. With assembly heights 4 and 5 the slide protrudes approx. 190 cm into the room; at assembly height 3, it protrudes about 175 cm into the room. In both cases, you should plan an exit opening of at least 70 cm. In total, you need approx. 470 cm for a slide attached in the longitudinal direction (mattress length 200 cm, slide height 4 or 5) and 360 cm for a transversely attached slide (mattress width 90 cm, slide height 4 or 5). Less room depth is required for our Slide Tower. The tower is attached to the loft bed, the slide to the Slide Tower. When the Slide Tower is installed to the short side of the bed the required room depth is reduced to 320 cm. This mounting option is ideal for beds that are in the corners of rooms.
For Billi-Bolli, safety is priority. This is reflected in the quality of the material and workmanship of our products. For safe handling of the slide, please also follow our advice:
Since a slide can only be attached to loft beds, the assembly height of the bed should be appropriate for your child’s age as well as their stage of development.
You can further increase the safety of the slide by attaching slide ears.
Don’t let very young children play on the slide unsupervised.
At bedtime, the slide can be secured with a removable slide gate.
