What is the differences with Coffin-alike Capsule Bed and Flame Retardant ABS Capsule Bed?

The capsule bed is mainly composed of fire-retardant ABS which comply with UL94 V-0, V-2 material. Also with strong steel frame that is support over 250 Kg in weight.

(Flame retardant - Fire Rated ABS Sheet)
ABS FR Sheet (Flame retardant - Fire Rated ABS Sheet) is offered by Professional Plastics in a wide range colors & grades. Certain grades of ABS sheet are formulated to meet the smoke and fire specifications recommended by the Federal Transit Administration (formerly UMTA) to consistently meets FTA guidelines for flammability and smoke emission  as measured by ASTM E-162 and ASTM E-662. All materials meet UL Ratings of UL94V-0 or greater.



Coffin-alike Capsule Bed use any wood materials as parts of the capsule/pod, however, wood  is one of the fire composistion (Fuel), thus in case of fire, the person cannot be protected by Flame Retardant ABS, the wooden capsule bed becomes a fire funeral.


Scaring?! Think twice before you make decision to order the correct choice of Capsule Bed.

We do want to follow the highest safety standard of Japanese Capsule Hotel Bed, and do not want any wooden capsule hotel bed endanger the original safety in this industry. As the leader of capsule hotel bed manufacturer, we wish to provide you the best quality with competitive price as you may need to acknowledge the danger of cheaper inferior quality capsuel hotel bed suppliers.
