Hooks are a convenient and versatile solution to storage in both professional and domestic settings. Typically made from metal, they're either installed onto a wall or post to offer a spot to hang items, or they feature a two-ended system, whereby a hook hangs from a secure spot to allow items to be hung on the remaining end.
Hooks are ideal for tidy storage and keeping products together to prevent losing them. They come in a wide range of types to suit many requirements.
There are lots of different hook designs available to purchase, and most are versatile and easy to use...
• Cabin hooks - Sometimes called cabin and cleat hooks, this style of hooking system is used to hold doors and gates open to prevent them slamming shut on a windy day.
• Coat hooks - Typically installed in a row in a cloak room or changing area, coat hooks are a feature both professionally and domestically. Secured to a wall or post, they hang more than just coats, with larger sizes available for heavier items.
• Hat & coat hook - This style features the usual coat hook with an extended top hook to hang a hat above the coat.
• S-shaped hooks - Manufactured from a wide range of materials, S-shaped hooks require no work to install and are ideal for hanging items from a height.
• Item - hanging coats and other lighter weight items requires more size than strength.
• Style - hooks are available in a wide range of styles to suit room décor or to match with existing products.
How do you determine the load capacity of a hook?
This involves a very complicated calculation that is formulated over several steps and is something that the manufacturer should feature on their packaging. The amount of tensile stress a hook can cope with is, however, but one part of the process. A hook alone may handle a certain weight, but if it's been installed incorrectly or in a stud wall the hook will fall out over time. Always read the manufacturer's installation instructions and use the correct wall plugs for installation.
What spacing should I use for coat hooks
For the side-by-side installation of coat hooks, anything between 10cm to 15cm separation is a good option. This allows for a tidy and uniform look if the hooks are on display and gives enough space for wet coats and accessories to dry without leaking on other coats.
