Bush Bedroom Furniture Testing

Unfortunately, tragic accidents have taken place in homes across America where dressers have tipped over and caused harm to children. With this in mind, we decided to go above and beyond in crafting dressers that exceed industry test standards through our Tip Guard designs. Tip Guard safety features include a stable design, counterweighted back panel, wall anchor and Open-Safe Drawers. Click on the image to enlarge and view key safety features in our 4 drawer and 6 drawer dressers.

  • Drawers pass stability testing with 70 lb. weight on level hard and most level carpeted surfaces; included wall anchor offers additional security
  • Open-Safe Drawers are designed to pull out one at a time for improved stability
  • Slides stop when fully extended to prevent drawers from being removed unintentionally
