Teachers’ School Supply has significantly expanded their selection of compliant cribs to fit a wide range of customer needs.

All child care facilities will need to adhere to new crib standards and replace their existing cribs with compliant ones by Dec. 28, 2012. Since 2010, Teachers’ School Supply has been providing their customers with high-quality compliant cribs that meet U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) crib safety standards. The company has been a trusted source for cribs for the past 26 years and has been working with crib manufacturers in order to make sure there is adequate supply for its customers.

According to the CPSC, the new standards will create a safer generation of cribs, preventing deaths from detaching crib drop-sides or defective hardware. Previous to 2010, Federal mandatory crib standards had not been updated for almost 30 years. Now, with the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (CPSIA) mandated crib standards, child care facilities nationwide will have to create a safe sleeping environment for America’s children by the December deadline.

The updated standards have five major changes that apply to full-size and non full-size cribs: the manufacture and sale of traditional drop-side cribs is prohibited, crib slats are required to be stronger, mattress support durability and quality of the hardware needs to be improved, and more rigorous testing is required. This new regulation affects virtually every crib manufactured before 2010 and child care facilities, including daycares and churches, nationwide.

Teachers’ School Supply has significantly expanded their selection of compliant cribs to fit a wide range of customer needs and is continuing to take an active role as a supplier of compliant cribs for their many preschool, daycare and church customers. The company has been proactive about the unprecedented demand that the standards have already started to create and has worked with all of the major crib manufacturers to ensure supply will continue to be available for their customers as the deadline for replacement approaches.
