Key points to consider when buying Workplace Lockers 

The size and configuration of the locker compartment will be determined by the items to be stored e.g. the need to hang garments, size of bags/holdalls, the storage of motor cycle helmets and footwear etc.

Is there a need to keep workwear separately from personal clothing? Clean/Dirty Lockers are supplied with two vertical compartments to separate workwear and daywear.

If hygiene is important consider a factory fitted sloping top option on lockers. This prevents an unwanted build up of dirt and debris and also encourages storage within the locker and not outside. Locker Stands can provide cleaning access to beneath the locker.

In dry changing room environments, lockers can be floor mounted.  Check floor surfaces are level, lockers are designed to be floor standing. To overcome uneven floors Locker Stands are supplied with adjustable feet.  In wet areas it is important to raise the locker off the floor using Locker Stands.

If users are changing footwear, it would be useful to offer Bench Seating or an integral Seat and Stand option.

Is there a need to air damp clothing? If so consider lockers where compartments are big enough to hang garments. Also consider Mesh Lockers for good air circulation.

Type of lock required …. key cam lock, padlock type fitting, £1 coin return or token return lock, 4 digit combination lock options available. Remember during installation to database keys to a locker compartment for easier key management.

Consider additional locker accessories, e.g. hanging rail, sloping top, number plates, extra keys etc.

Is there a need for locker compartments to be visually monitored?  Lockers with Perforated Doors and Lockers with Vision Panel Doors allow inspection from outside the locker.

Minimum distances to allow clear movement of users in gangways.
