Wood Locker Faqs

The following are some frequently asked questions about Classic Woodworking lockers:

Q: What is the standard size for a locker?

A: This depends a lot on the intended usage, climate, and facility, but some basic guidelines are that a typical single-tier fitness locker is 72”H x 12”W x 20”D and a country club locker is 72”H x 18”W x 20”D.

Q: What is suggested minimum locker depth to accommodate a coat rod?

A: 18"

Q: What is inside clearance of a locker, using 12" wide locker as an example?

A: The sides and back are 5/8"thick and the door is 3/4", so using this, a 12" locker is 12 - (5/8*2) = 10 3/4" wide.

Q: Where are the coat rod and hooks typically located?

A: The coat rod is usually located 3" from the top of the locker (to the middle of the rod). The coat hooks are located 3" from either the top of the locker (if there is no rod) or from the middle of the coat rod.

Q: What is the minimum interior height needed to accommodate a suit jacket?

A: Using a typical hanger, you would need a 40 inch locker.

Q: Are there other stain finishes available other than the Classic standards?

A: Yes. We can match any control sample you provide to us.

Q: Can we get painted lockers?

A: Yes. Please provide us the paint company name, paint name and color number.

Q: Can we get lockers with more openings then a Model F (6 openings)?

A: Yes. Please let us know what you need and we will design a locker for you. The minimum locker door height should be 8" to allow the hinges to work properly.

Q: What are filler panels used for?

A: Filler panels are finished to match your lockers and are used to fill space between lockers and walls. Generally, a little space is designed into a locker room between the edge lockers and walls or corners to make sure all lockers are easily accessed. Filler panels go from locker side to wall or are used to make a corner.

Q: What are end panels used for?

A: End panels are finished to match your lockers and are used to cover any exposed locker sides to give your locker room a cohesive, finished look.

Q: How long does installation take?

A: Classic lockers are shipped fully assembled, so assembly typically goes quickly. Approximately 50 lockers per day can be installed, depending on the trim package.

Q: What is the difference between veneer and PVC edge band?

A: Both can be selected to closely match the wood stain and species of your lockers. PVC is used on the locker body and wear points. Veneer is used on the edge of a wood door.

Q: Are the lockers shipped fully assembled?

A: Yes. Classic lockers are fully assembled in our plant using dowels and glue to ensure that they will last for years.

Q: Do the lockers come in groups of 3?

A. No, they come as individual units.

Q: What hardware finishes are available?

A: The most common finishes are chrome or brass.  Finishes are dependent upon specific hardware and may vary.  Please contact us to find out more and indicate which finish you are interested in.
