As you’d expect, the weight capacity of a futon will vary depending on the size and construction. That said, I figured it would be helpful to provide a basic rundown of average futon weight limits so that you can have a better idea of what models to look for or what items to get or not get.
Keep in mind that since futons are essentially sofa sleepers, they will be designed to hold at least 2 adults, and usually significantly more weight.
These aren’t large futons by any means (and most models weigh less than 100 lbs). Therefore, I think this is more than adequate as far as how much weight they can hold. In fact, you will find it challenging to try and seat 3 adults on one of these sofas.
Queen Futon Weight Limit
Unlike the klik-klak style, they generally have a wood or metal frame which is separate from the mattress itself.
From what I’ve seen, a frame for a 60″ x 80″ mattress can hold 600 lbs and sometimes up to 750 lbs like the Provo.
Futon Bunk Bed Weight Capacity
The cheaper models cost around $300 and usually have metal frames. Wooden-framed futon bunkbeds can cost up to $1000 and are more sturdy.
How Much Weight Can a Futon Hold?
Remember, these are average weight limits to give you a round-about idea. Check your product label for specific capacity.
- Convertible Klik-Klak Futons: 600 lbs
- Queen Futon Frames: 600 lbs, some up to 750 lbs
- Futon Bunk Beds: 200 lbs (top) + 600 lbs (bottom)
