6.1.5 Security of bunks
If a bunk is designed to fold away, it shall be secured against unintentional folding away. If a bunk is designed to be stored during transportation, it shall be secured against unintentional movement when stored. All bunks shall not unintentionally move. All bunks shall be tested in accordance with Annex I.
6.1.6 Access to high level bunks
A means of access to an high level bunk shall be provided, such as surfaces of furniture, foot holes in a solid component, handles or a ladder which shall be fixed or be able to be attached, to the bunk, in a safe manner. The width of the treads between supports shall be at least 250 mm. The distance between the top foothold and the uppermost part of the bed structure, e.g. the side rail or safety barrier, at the point of access, shall not be more than 400 mm. When a ladder is used, the upper surfaces of the treads shall be equally spaced within a tolerance of士12 mm, and the unobstructed distance between consecutive treads shall be (225士25) mm. When tested in accordance with Annex ], the ladder shall not move when subjected to a downward static load of 1 000 N and a horizontal static load of 500 N; nor shall the ladder or its treads break or deflect permanently by more than 5 mm. Where it is impractical to test the bunk ladder in the caravan, it is acceptable to test an identical configuration of the ladder, its method of fixing and its range of positions of use, outside the caravan according to Annex ].
