Outfitting your school with new lockers? There are a lot of factors to consider first, including the size of your allotted space and the needs of your students and staff. Here’s a closer look at the options available to you.
Single tier lockers are tall and take up the entire vertical space of a locker unit. These lockers are sold as single units or as multiple units attached in a side-by-side configuration.
Multi-tier lockers include two or more rows of lockable compartments per locker unit. These lockers are sold as single units or as multiple units in a side-by-side configuration.
Box lockers include multiple square locker compartments in a single unit.
Ventilated lockers have holes that allow the unit to breathe. While most lockers include some level of ventilation, these lockers have more than the average, making them ideal for use in gym locker rooms which can quickly succumb to bad odors and moisture build up.
See-through lockers have a transparent door so that school staff members can easily see the contents of the locker.
Cell phone lockers feature multiple small compartments meant to secure cell phones, wallets and other valuables. In a school setting, this type of locker is commonly used to prevent student cell phone usage during classroom hours.
Open wardrobe lockers don’t lock and typically don’t have doors either. These wardrobe storage units are typically used by toddlers or young children in a classroom to hang up jackets and backpacks.
Soiled garment lockers are designed for uniforms and other clothing that requires laundering. This type of locker typically features a chute-like opening for dropping in clothes, which must then be obtained by staff via a locked door.
