Our School lockers come in different sizes and configurations to suit the changing height of pupils at different key stages. With that in mind we have secure storage to suit all school age groups, with safe and robust designs suitable for KS1 upwards. All of the lockers we suggest for schools have strong frames and doors for the demands of day to day use in a school. Each locker can be nested to remove any risk of the lockers toppling over. They can also all be secured to a wall to avoid any movement for added security and peace of mind.
School lockers designed for educational environments
When talking to teachers or caretakers about lockers for their school, we offer the following guidance to make sure you choose the right type:
- Calculate the total number of compartments required per locker to accommodate all your students
- Consider the size of the compartments; 2, 3 and 4 doors are popular choice that will fit rucksacks, sports bags, coats etc.
- Survey the premises to establish if the lockers will be dry and free from moisture
- Consider a suitable locking mechanism; key operated locks for high schools and key-less options for primary school pupils
- Allow time for production and installation of your lockers; fitting them outside of term time will avoid disruption
- Nests of lockers can be ordered for a more cost effective storage solution for your school
We offer the most common lock types for use with in schools. The most popular locking option is the swivel catch - usually for use with a padlock. Without a padlock these swivel catches are an ideal handle for small children as they are easy to turn, open and close.
The lockers of yesterday usually have the same, boring grey metal doors. But not ours – all of our available colours are easy on the eye. We have school lockers for sale in a large array of colours to help bright your corridors. Take a look through each of our ranges and check out all of the possibilities. If your order is of large enough quantity, we can produce your new lockers in a paint finish to match your school colours, just get in touch and ask.
Some of our lockers suitable for schools have in-built anti-bacterial agents that work within the paint finish. These help stop the spread of germs in the school by actively killing off any bacteria that comes into contact with the locker finish.
Primary School Lockers
For the smaller children in schools, especially Early Years, KS1 and KS2, we have what we call 'Primary School Lockers'. These are specially designed school lockers that are not the standard locker dimensions. They are just over 1.3m in height and easier for small children to reach their compartments and use. They still have the same robust features and main spec as our standard lockers so there's no worry of a compromise anywhere. We can even come out to your primary school and help plan your storage space.
High School Lockers
Our lockers for high schools are specifically selected to stand up to the wear and tear you would expect in that kind of environment. They are a standard school locker size at 1800mm in height. This is still easily accessed by any younger students. We have also included our vision door lockers here. They allow for easy spot checks by members of staff to make that no students are abusing their locker privileges. The perspex panels allow for a quick visual check whilst leaving the lockers secure. All our lockers for high schools are also ideal for other areas of education including colleges and universities.
