Wood is a solid and strong material, but when it comes to durability, nothing beats metal. There are many instances where wooden furniture break because of excessive force, such as when children keep jumping up and down on wooden sofas and beds. With steel furniture though, children can jump all they want and the furniture will be more than capable of handling the stress.
Take note though that this is only in the case of high quality steel furniture – that is, those that are manufactured according to the highest standards and made use of high grade materials in their construction. The same principle of strength of material applies to all other metal or steel fixtures you may have like horizontal bi-fold doors in your garage or sliding doors in your patio.
In line with this, steel furniture is then a much safer choice given its sturdiness. Since there is no chance of breaking, accidents caused by collapsing furniture, split wood or splinters are greatly avoided. They are the perfect choice for homes with rowdy children and with constant influx of guests and visitors.
