A locker is typically a small storage compartment that varies in size and shape, and usually has the option of locking shut. They are useful in schools and locker rooms to anywhere where secure storage is desired. There are many different styles, including box lockers, half door, full door, and triple tear. There are also specialty lockers like garment and two person lockers with hat shelves.
Box lockers have the smallest amount of storage space, which also allows for maximum lockers in a limited space. These are great for small personal items like your wallet, cell phone, keys, jewelry, etc., as well as small tools, parts, or components. Because of the option to securely lock these units, employees can leave valuable belongings in them without fear of theft.
Full door lockers are just the opposite of box lockers. They are one full height vertical unit, making them ideal for storing a coat or other garments. One full door locker uses the most storage space out of all the styles we commonly carry, but they are ideal for applications where the extra storage space is necessary.
Half door and two person lockers use as much space as a single full door locker, but they are split into two units, which doubles the number of lockers overall. These are extremely popular because they are a nice middle ground between full door and box lockers. They provide a moderate amount of storage space while also being more efficient on overall space than full door lockers. Used half door lockers are one unit over the other, each unit being the same with as a full door locker. Two person lockers are two vertical units side by side, which are the same width as one full door locker as well. They also have two small shelves overhead for storage of small items.
For storage nearly as dense as box lockers, but with a little more storage space per unit, used triple tier lockers should be considered. These are three lockers stacked on one another, typically with the same width as a full door locker.
One thing that box lockers can’t do that nearly all of the other styles of lockers can (depending on their height) is hang garments. Box lockers allow for a maximum number of units in a small space, but are too small to hang your jacket. Garment lockers utilize box lockers, and a coat rod is mounted under the lockers between the vertical sections. This allows for employees to hang full length garments, while still being able to secure their other personal items in their individual lockers.
