Midbeam broke. deadly hazard. deserves 0 stars and product safety recall
While dismantling the bed, the mid beam snapped in half. If this had happened while my daughter was underneath, it could have been fatal. Now I have a pile of firewood. Ikea used glue finger joins and short pieces of pine for this crucial structural component. I have since been to their store to report the safety issue but they will not action without a receipt. There should be a product safety recall for the midbeams on all the old models with fingerjoins. They have not done this, despite knowing this is a design flaw. They have revised ...the midbeam design as I looked at a new Stora Loft frame on the display floor. It is 2 long flat pieces of pine glued the entire horizontal one on top of the other. I have since bought the metal loft frame, the Tromso.
