Top 10 Benefits of Switching to Wood Lockers

Wood lockers add an ambience to the locker room at your gym or clubhouse that is unmistakable, giving your clientele a much more upscale experience than facilities with traditional metal lockers. But what makes wood lockers so special? Here are ten great benefits of switching to wood lockers.

  1. Wood lockers have natural beauty. There’s a reason that wood finishes are designed to show the natural lines in the wood – the patterns in wood are beautiful, all on their own.
  2. Wood is naturally strong. Lockers have to stand up to the punishment inherent in locker rooms; multiple users, slammed doors, thrown gear and rough usage are no match for the natural strength of wood.
  3. Wood is durable. Wood lockers stand the test of time, which means a better return on your investment.
  4. Wood is a green option. Wood pulls carbon from the atmosphere, which helps in the fight against climate change. As the demand for wooden products rises, it leads to more forest cover, with well-managed forests growing on cleared land. Responsibly sourced wood is a renewable resource.
  5. Wood lockers have timeless style. From the boardroom to the clubhouse, wood has always been considered the standard for elegance, and wood lockers will bring that grace to your locker room.
  6. Being around wood has measurable health benefits. Wood has been shown to lower heart rate and stress responses which can encourage greater interaction between people, which is a huge benefit to the locker room atmosphere.
  7. Wood lockers are easy to maintain. Wipe them down regularly, and your wood lockers will stay beautiful.
  8. Wood provides flexible décor. Wood lockers can be elegant or casual, and all you really need to change is the furnishings around them.
  9. Wood stands up to weather. If your locker room is exposed to damp, heat or cold, wood lockers alleviate some of your worry about its upkeep. Unlike metal lockers, which rust and become corroded, wood stands up to punishing conditions without damage.
  10. Wood lockers lead to local jobs. Working with wood is the realm of craftsmen, and wooden lockers are built onsite or in a local facility, giving work to local craftsmen and carpenters.
