Safe, Secure School Coat Pegs

Squarepegs is a unique modular coat hanging system for schools that ensures even the bulkiest coats stay on the peg rather than the floor. As well the patented opposing pegs design, the system features a front safety rail with padded buffers that prevents injury to children.

Every Squarepegs product is designed and built by hand in Sheffield, UK. The products are individually made-to-measure to fit cloakrooms and corridors of all shapes and sizes, and the all-welded steel construction means that Squarepegs are maintenance free.

Because all Squarepegs systems are hand made to order, we can put together a coat hanging solution that makes the best use of your space. There are four key products withing the system that enable it to fit even the smallest or most unusual room shapes.

Our products come in four standard colours but can be powder coated in a huge range as an option. Due to this and the welded steel construction, they are built to last a lifetime.

Today, hundreds of schools around the UK are safer and tidier thanks to Squarepegs.

Keeping School Cloakrooms Tidier

Conventional coat pegs create a problems for school teachers and governors because coats are easily dislodged and end up on the floor. This leaves school cloakrooms untidy, makes clothes dirty and creates trip hazards for children rushing between lessons.

The unique, patented Squarepegs design means coats don’t compete for wall space. Instead the opposed peg positioning keeps even the bulkiest coats on the hooks rather than the floor.

Making Schools Safer

Many school cloakrooms have rows of sharp or protruding coat pegs. These are often positioned around head height for a child and create a potentially significant safety hazard.

The Squarepegs coat hanging system features a front safety rail that keeps young heads away from the coat pegs. Additionally, the corners are rounded and fitted with padded rubber safety bumpers.

Maintenance Free

All our products are designed, built and painted in-house at our Sheffield workshop. They are constructed from steel with every single joint individually hand-welded and our powder coating process gives an unbeatably tough finish.

Thanks to this unique attention to detail, Squarepegs products are completely maintenance free and designed to last a lifetime.

Hand-Made in the UK

None of our products are mass produced or imported. They are hand-made to order by Mark Jackson, the inventor of the Squarepegs system and an engineer with XXXX years experience in steel construction.

Our workshop is located within Sheffield’s Portland Works, one of the UK’s most important historical industrial buildings and home to a collection of workspaces for traditional craftspeople. Appropriately, Portland Works is often referred to as the birthplace of stainless-steel manufacturing.

The Squarepegs Product Range

The Squarespace system is individually made to measure and consists of four modules. These can be combined with variable length units to fit even the smallest or most unusual room shape.

These modules greatly increase the usability of the Squarepegs system. Schools can add additional coat pegs via off-shots and islands or incorporate extra features such as benches and shelves to the cloakroom.

In addition to providing a flexible solution, this also gives a better return on investment for shool managers. Combining more pegs and greater usibility in each cloakroom  makes every Squarepegs system far better value than conventional solutions.

Standard colours for the products are red (RAL3020), blue (RAL 5017), yellow (RAL 1021) and green (RAL 6024) but others are available on request.

Strong cloakroom benches

Cloakroom Benches

The Squarepegs system can add sturdy, hand-made wooden benches to the peg racks allowing a cloakroom to also serve as a changing room.
