On this page

Wood Lockers Advantages: 

Aesthetic Appeal: Wood offers a natural and warm look that can enhance the ambiance of a space. 

Customizability: Can be stained, painted, or finished in numerous ways to match interior decor. 

Traditional Feel: Preferred in settings where a classic or rustic style is desired. 

Strength and Stability: Solid wood lockers can be very sturdy and stable, especially when properly maintained. 


Maintenance: Wood requires regular maintenance such as sanding, staining, and sealing to prevent rot and decay. 

Susceptibility to Moisture and Pests: Not ideal for high-humidity environments as it can warp, swell, or attract pests. 

Weight: Wood lockers are heavier and more difficult to move or install. 

Cost: Can be more expensive than plastic lockers, especially if using high-quality or exotic woods. 

Considerations for Choosing: Environment: For wet or humid areas, plastic is the better choice. For dry indoor spaces where aesthetics matter, wood might be preferred. 


Budget: Wood lockers can be pricier upfront, but consider the long-term costs associated with maintenance. Usage: If the lockers will be subjected to rough handling, plastic might be more resilient. Aesthetics: Match the locker material to the overall design and atmosphere of your facility. Sustainability: If sustainability is a priority, consider the source of the materials and their end-of-life disposal options. 

Ultimately, the choice between a plastic and a wood locker should align with your facility’s specific needs, the locker’s intended location, and your organization’s values regarding aesthetics, durability, and environmental impact.
