I have previously used a single bed (metal) of same brand for 6 years, which is still as solid as it was then. This bed, although still very solid, is not as sturdy as that old one. Some legs are slightly bent. When you put weight on it, middle section of the bed bends downwards a little bit. But despite all of that, it is still very good. Some design elements ensure that it will not break or become damaged easily. Serves the purpose, well.
