Wall Lockers vs. Freestanding Lockers
When you’re purchasing lockers, deciding between wall lockers and freestanding lockers can be a difficult decision. Of course, you’ll have to take into account your use of the lockers, whether you need storage lockers, school lockers, or gym lockers. You’ll also have to choose the size of the lockers, and whether they have coat rods, coat hooks, or shelves. In addition, the construction materials are also important. Some applications will require waterproof lockers, while others require decorative finishes. When your consideration is between wall lockers and freestanding lockers, your choice is largely subjective, as both types have advantages.
Freestanding lockers are easier to install and replace than wall lockers. They have other advantages as well, including the ability to create rows of lockers, and the fact that using freestanding lockers allows for more lockers in an open space. On the other hand, this kind of locker requires decorative, matching exteriors, which can make it challenging if you only want to replace a few at a time.
Wall lockers, in contrast, only show the front side, so the appearance is not as important. You can even choose open-front lockers, so that there is not even a front side to show. Wall lockers save floor space, and have a sleek appearance once they’re installed. They’re ideal for tight spaces where floor space is limited.
Of course, you don’t necessarily have to choose between freestanding and wall lockers. Many people choose to design their locker rooms using a combination of the two types, in order to make the best use of the space.
