Types of changing room benches and accessories
There are a range of changing room benches available on the market and each may suit different changing rooms, they include:
Wall mounted changing room benches
Wall mounted changing room benches are attached to the wall via brackets which are securely fixed to frames on the wall. These benches are great for saving space.
Freestanding changing room benches
Freestanding changing room benches can be placed anywhere in a changing room making it a flexible choice for changing rooms as it can easily be moved.
Single sided island changing room benches
Single sided island changing room benches are placed against a wall and may also feature coats hooks and a rail on the framework.
Double sided island changing room benches
Double sided island changing room benches are placed in the center of a room as they have benches either side of the framework to accommodate more people.
Locker support changing room benches
You can even find benches with lockers attached if you're looking to save space but still have room for lockers in busy changing rooms.
Coat hooks and rails
Coat hooks and rails can be mounted to a wall above or beside changing room benches but some benches will feature these on the framework itself. These are ideal for providing more space for people’s belongings - especially if lockers are full or not available.
Which changing room bench is best?
The type of changing room bench that is best for you will depend on the size, style and layout of your changing room. Here are some ideas depending on the type of changing room you have:
For smaller changing rooms
Wall mounted or one sided changing room benches are ideal because they take up less space. You could also look at investing in a changing room bench that has coat hooks and rails built into the framework (or buying separate coat hooks and rails to mount to the wall) if your changing room has limited space for lockers.
For larger changing rooms or changing rooms with high traffic
It may be best to install double sided changing room benches in larger, busier changing rooms as people can get ready on either side of the framework and you can save wall space for more lockers. Another option is to install locker support changing room benches as this allows you to provide space to change and lockers to safely store belongings without compromising too much on space.
For changing rooms you may renovate
If you think you may eventually renovate your changing rooms or you’re not sure which option is best for you, why not go for a freestanding bench which will give you the flexibility to move it wherever and whenever you please!
