The clothes racks are found in all types of retail outlets and in homes. They are used to hang clothes on. They are largely used in retail stores to display the clothes and are found in homes as storage options for clothing.
They are typically made from metal but can also be found in high density plastics.
There are many different types of retail outlets that use clothes racks as a way to display their clothing for sale. Department stores use them, discount chain stores use them and second hand venues use them. It is the perfect way to display clothing so that consumers can easily rifle through them and make their purchases.
In retail outlets you will see a couple of different styles of these items. There are straight types that usually have a single metal bar that are supported by two edge bases. The hangers that hold the clothing simply hook on to the metal bar and sit side by side. These are the least complex systems.
There are systems that are curved and the bar is graduated upwards this makes for a much cleaner display system. The same single bar system is in place but the bar is curved and may have dividers that are a few inches tall that will divide the hanging clothing. These types of racks do not hold or display as many clothes at one time but are by far less messy looking.
In most applications used for retail outlets the clothing racks are made of metal. This is the favored material because of its durability.
In The Home
In the home you will see these racks as storage options for clothing. They can be installed inside the closet but in some spaces they are stand alone systems. They are perfect for small spaces or for spaces that lack closet space and they are also perfect as closet organizers.
In the home these racks can be made from either metal or plastic or a combination of the two materials. They are typically less durable for the home than they are for retail outlets, because the expectation is that they will be holding less clothes and will be used less.
A clothes rack for the home are easy to install and are usually sold with all the necessary mounting hardware. There are some models that are free standing and have wheels for easy transport from place to place in the room.
