LOCKER DEFINITION

What is a locker and what that means for the customer?

1

Lockers are a security device.

Plain and simple, lockers are an old-fashioned security device. Indeed, the name locker tells you what the locker does. A locker is made to LOCK something up. Without a doubt, most Americans have seen or used a locker before. Some of the places we see lockers are: schools, gyms, health clubs, mailrooms, breakrooms, locker rooms, fire departments, military bases, bus or train stations, airports, and countless other locations.

What are the physical aspects of a locker?

As a locker exists to LOCK things up, obviously the number one consideration is durability. Why go thru the hassle of locking something up, if a person can still easily open the locker. There are in fact, numerous variables that contribute to a locker's durability and security. First, there are different types and thickness of steel used to make lockers. Notably, fabrication of standard metal lockers uses cold rolled steel in gauges ranging from 14 gauge to 24 gauge. The metal gauge standard is defined by thicker metal being lower numerical gauge number. Therefore, 14 gauge is thicker than 24 gauge. Consequently, a locker made from thicker metal is stronger and will provide the most significant protection.

What is inside the locker?

Before you throw a backpack inside the locker, some planning has to take place. Lockers can have lots of optional features inside. Mainly there are hooks, coat rods, and shelves. At the same time, we take into consideration today's high technology. Therefore some lockers may have power outlets to allow recharging of devices. Consider the intended use of the locker? Is one double prong hook in the center sufficient or will two single prongs hooks provide more utility? Is a coat rod necessary? Will a shelf provide more usefulness for the users of the locker?

Even though the locker is locked, we need to let something out.

Undoubtedly, someone closes and locks a locker to secure belongings inside. However, there are times we need to let something out. In particular for athletic applications, of primary concern is ventilation for wet items such as towels, clothes, equipment, and shoes. There are many types of ventilation for metal lockers. In particular, these include louvers and perforations. These openings provide needed air movement to reduce odors and allow contents to dry.
