Storage Lockers

Mar 26, 2008
Lockers have been a storage solution for many years. We now find ourselves in an ever-increasing world where not only is space an essential daily consideration but most importantly security.

Security can be dealt with in a number of ways Dependant on where and what the lockers are being used for, but with individual keys, master keys, combination locks or even coin return/coin retain facilities - lockers can ensure that security can be managed easily, whatever the application.

Lockers offer a practical solution for areas where there are many individuals at any one time, needing storage of many different items. With educational establishments being an excellent example of this need for storage, for staff or pupils, the facility to have up to 6 doors within one column is superb value and design. Not only this, but with the fact that groups of lockers can be 'nested' together, bolted securely by the manufacturer -this allows for a full combination to be installed without the concern of columns moving apart from one another.

Not only in steel, but with timber lockers now available the requirement for lockers can be extended into health clubs, hospitals, staffroom and offices. Multi-use steel lockers are useful to industrious working areas that offer not just standard locker compartments but incorporate hanging rails and cloakroom-type seating or shelving. In other more cloakroom-type areas where lockers are required, mesh lockers can be obtained but obviously do not offer security, but great storage and visibility. Bench seating is also a common extra for a standard locker combination. Another alternative available has been designed specifically for staff uniforms so that dirty clothes can be deposited in one large compartment & clean can be retrieved from a specific individual compartment.

Unique designs on certain brands offer perforated doors so that airflow is still possible, depending on the items that may be stored within each compartment. Plus this also allows for any applications where visibility may be required. Add to this the variety of colors and sizes available, the steel locker can be purchased for any number of compartments, of any size - plus with low level lockers allowing easier wheelchair or child access.

Additional developments brought into the market for the standard locker is to opt for a sloping canopy top. This possibly avoids the top of the locker to be used as storage or for collecting unwanted & mostly unseen refuse. Locker stands can be purchased that lift the whole locker unit off the ground, enabling access for cleaning and airflow.
The locker pod has also introduced a further space saving solution with a carousel-type design where a group of many locker compartments can be stored but with only one access point at any one time.

The major UK manufacturers of lockers now also take pride in heard-wearing anti-bacterial powder coating to provide the most stringent hygienic environment. This impedes the growth and migration of potentially harmful bacteria, mold, fungi, algae and more - reducing the risk of cross-contamination from surface to surface.

For places such as nurseries, schools, colleges or healthcare and catering establishments the requirement for lockers is high. With considerations of space available, potential use, security and style - lockers really can offer a full solution.
