The Top 3 Points to Consider for Choosing the Right Steel Lockers for Your Needs

Are you planning to set up a new locker room or simply looking to refit your existing one? Are you not sure where to start? At Caslad, we understand that fitting a room with lockers can be a sizable investment for any organisation, especially in today’s tough economy. Whether you are a school, business, warehouse, gym, or sports club, here are three useful factors to take into account before making your purchasing decision:

#1 Get the Locker Size Right

Choosing the right steel lockers depend on who will be using them and what will be stored inside them. Bearing in mind that athletes, employees, and school children have vastly different needs, before making a choice, consider who the user is and what the user needs. If the user needs to store possessions like keys, a small bag, a cellphone, and a wallet, then you will only need small lockers. However, if the user needs to store clothes on hangers, textbooks, towels, and even sports bags and paraphernalia, you will need lockers that have hanging rails, as well as a shelf or two.

 

#2 Durability and Longevity are Essential

While it is no secret that steel lockers are far more durable and long-lasting than plastic or wooden lockers, you need to know how strong they should be and where they will be placed. Firstly, how are the lockers to be positioned? Will the lockers be installed against a wall, or will the sides and backs be exposed? Kids and athletes can be quite heavy-handed, which is why it is always recommended to use the appropriate gauge of the steel when compiling the specifications of your lockers.

 

#3 Ventilation is Vital

We can all agree that there is nothing worse than walking into a locker room and having to endure the stench of dirty, sweaty clothes or other items, so never overlook the importance of proper locker ventilation, especially if the lockers are for a gym or school. Essential in preventing bacterial growth, ventilation will ensure a fresher smell, both on the inside and on the outside.
