We've put together this simple guide highlighting types of lockers and their features to help you narrow down your selection from the many options available.
Standard steel lockers come with optional anti-bacterial coating. This powder coated finish helps to prevent viruses and bacteria such as MRSA and E.Coli from infecting and spreading across surfaces. These lockers are ideal for schools and higher education environments such as colleges and universities where there is high traffic and germs are prone to spreading.
Plastic lockers are also ideal for school environments as they can be stored indoors or outdoors. This can be a space-saving technique if there is limited space indoors, space outside can be utilised. This material is easy to maintain, hardwearing and water resistant. The polyethylene plastic material can withstand general wear & tear providing strength and durability for everyday use.
Half height school lockers
Half height school lockers are ideal for primary school environments where younger students can easily access their own storage space comfortably. Many primary schools may already use metal coat hooks and racks or but lockers are another option for keeping personal belongings safe.
Changing Room Lockers
Before purchasing lockers for changing rooms there are a few things to consider – the space provided and the budget. Multi-compartment and nested lockers are the best choice when purchasing for limited space. These lockers are great value for money and ideal for changing rooms as pupils can store away valuables, clothes, shoes and bags.
We offer a range of single and double-sided bench seats with coat hooks or hangers that are ideal for changing rooms. Students can use the benches when changing or as a place to rest bags and/or shoes. We will also be introducing our new range of bench seats soon that will be available offline and online.
Laptop Storage & Charging Lockers
Laptop or charging laptop lockers are ideal for schools or higher education environments such as universities and colleges as there has been an increase in the use of laptops and iPads over desktop computers. We sell a wide range of both charging & non-charging laptop lockers in a variety of colours and door options to suit your institution’s needs.
The mains reasons to purchase laptop/charging lockers in schools include;
- Device storage
- Battery charging
- Charging mobile phones and other devices
Both charging and non-charging are frequently used in educational sectors however there is a significant difference in price between the two. Depending on the needs of the school, you can look to purchase the non-charging option while also saving the pennies.
Cube lockers are much smaller and compact which makes them the ideal option for smaller spaces as they can be stacked on top of one another. Thanks to their size, they are also very versatile so they can suit many commercial environments including, schools, colleges, universities, offices and more. Moreover, cube lockers are usually made from a robust steel so they are robust and durable
School locker design features to consider
Ventilation is an important factor when choosing lockers for educational environments in order to keep schools odour-free, especially when items such as sports clothing and food are being stored
As there has been an increase in potentially dangerous items entering schools, lockers could possibly be the main place to hide them. Vision panel lockers are a great way to prevent these issues as these lockers will offer visual security.
There are many different lock options to consider depending on the use of the lockers. If lockers are shared, we suggest a 4-digit combination lock for easy access between pupils or a hasp lock so pupils can simply bring their own padlock. With digital combination locks, there is a master key option available if teachers need to gain access.
If each pupil has their own locker you can opt for combination locks, or traditional key locks (cylinder locks). Each pupil will get his or her own key or combination for easy access. With each of these options spare keys, master keys or codes can be made or reset to allow staff access to the lockers if they need to be emptied or checked. Always consider the size of the locker door when purchasing different lock options.
Different lock options available include;
- Hasp & Staple (padlock)
- Cylinder (accessed with a key)
- Coin Return
- 4 Digit Combination Lock*
- Electronic Combination Lock*
