Designated Cloakroom Areas
Most schools have requirements for some school cloakroom furniture even if they do not have dedicated cloakrooms. Many modern classroom designs designate a corner for hanging up bags and coats, for example, so they are out of the way, rather than filling other classroom storage
units when space is at a premium. Others may install school cloakroom storage products and furniture in corridors. As such, the product range needs to be versatile and to fit in well in numerous educational settings.
Durable School Cloakroom Storage
With many students using school cloakroom furniture several times a day, durability is an important buying consideration. Products like bag storage units
and low-level lockers should provide resistance to daily wear and tear whilst also being easy to clean at the end of the school day. Heavy-duty storage bins that can slide in and out of the receptacle or cubby hole repeatedly are useful as are sturdy storage trolleys that may be wheeled about a school's premises multiple times a day.
Ergonomically Designed Furniture
Ergonomics, especially for early years and junior school settings, is crucial. Storage racks that double up as benches for students to change their footwear on, such as the Kubbyclass Coat Tidy
for example, ought to be at the right height for the age group concerned. Hooks for coats and PE bags should also be within easy reach.
School Cloakroom Design
Brightly coloured coat hooks
and coat tidies are a good idea in early years classrooms since they help younger pupils to identify their allocated place more easily. Simplicity is often the key to a winning design style with modern cloakroom furniture and storage trolleys.
Materials Used For Cloakroom Furniture
Harmless natural materials are used for many school cloakroom furniture products so wood is often used for elements such as bench slats which students will come into direct contact with. For durability steel fixings and frames are often found while heavy duty plastics also have their place where hands will come into contact with the furniture as they are easy to wipe down.
