How to choose a locker
Choosing the right locker for our luggage can sometimes be a bit more complicated than we think, especially when we are not familiar with the standard size of suitcases and don't have a measuring tape to measure each of the suitcases that make up our luggage at the time of reserving the locker.
In this article, we are going to try to approximate the measurements of our luggage and therefore the size of locker we need using something as simple as our own body.
There is a discipline called anthropometry, which aims to study and measure the human body and its proportions. This is very useful when designing furniture, clothing, vehicles, and almost any tool or machine we are going to use.
Segments of the Body
Even if two people have a significant height difference, the height difference is distributed throughout their body, so the differences between segments are a fraction of the total height difference.
- Mid-knee area
- Torso, up to the midpoint of the shoulder
The height differences in each of the segments are not very significant, although the total height difference is.
Let's take the average measurements for two adults with a height difference of 14 cm.
Adult 188 cm tall
- Mid-knee area: 54.4 cm
- Hip area: 100 cm
- Hand length: 21 cm
Adult 174 cm tall
- Mid-knee area: 49.9 cm
- Hip area: 90 cm
- Hand length: 19 cm
With these references, we can easily select the appropriate locker size for each type of suitcase.
Guidelines for Choosing the Locker Size
Small and Medium Suitcases
For suitcases whose height does not exceed our knee, we can use lockers of size S and M because even though their height is 37 cm and 47 cm respectively, their depth is 58 cm, so in most cases, we should not have any difficulty.
For suitcases whose height is above the knee and below the hip, we should use an XL-sized locker because its height is 85 cm and as we mentioned, the height at which the hip of a person 174 cm tall is located is 90 cm.
