Identifying features

There are no identifying numbers but the ANE logo—the letters ANE placed in a horizontal diamond shape—and the model name—'Menzies Bunk'—has been printed on all of the boxes.
Two versions of these bunks were supplied. The Menzies Bunk was supplied from 1 July 2007. The Casey Bunk was supplied from September 2008.

What are the defects?

The bunks supplied have one or more of the following defects:
1. The last slat at each end of the mattress base was positioned 130mm from the nearest endrail,which exceeds the maximum allowable gap of 95mm.
2. The access opening in the guardrail measures 448mm, exceeding the maximum allowable gap of 400mm.
3. The upper bunk slats are not fixed to the side rails and can be dislodged, creating gaps greater than 95mm.

What are the hazards?

The bunks present one or more of the following hazards:
1. Potential for entrapment if a child situated in the lower bunk places their head in the gap between the last slat at each end of the mattress base and the nearest endrail.
2. Potential "fall-through" hazard: a child may fall through the gap created by the opening in the guardrail.
3. Potential for entrapment if a child situated in the lower bunk removes a slat from the upper bunk and proceeds to force his/her head through the gap created.
