A current trend that is surging through a lot of different markets is the implementation of lockers for personal belongings. We have seen this trend in the corporate office environment, hoteling agencies, amusement parks, athletic facilities, as well as in the residential, higher education, and various other markets.
Perhaps one of the most prevalent uses of the modern locker comes from the corporate office environment. Lockers in an office setting allows for personnel and employees to have a secure place to store their belongings. Another modern trend we are seeing is the rise in the use of hoteling. Many companies now have employees who travel, work from home, and who are not in the office every day. In these instances it makes sense to replace the old cubicle lifestyle and embrace a more open and modular office space. With employees coming in and out, this allows for people to choose a different desk every day, and still have a place to keep their belongings.
The market that has been historically more familiar with lockers is the education market. Many higher education institutions have had metal lockers for students to use, but these are being replaced with more user friendly, aesthetically pleasing lockers. Whether it be in the locker room or in the dining hall, there is a locker solution to fit any area on campus.
Casework lockers provide a clean look and ample storage. What is even better is they are completely modular, and can be easily re-arranged and reconfigured to accommodate new additions or different uses of space. Not only are they perfect for locker room storage, but casework lockers come in many different shapes, sizes, and variations – making them the perfect locker solution for all areas of campus. Choose from six different lock options, five different material options, have it match your school colors, and even implement the latest technology.
Lockers aren’t just for corporate and higher education facilities. A market that has used lockers for quite some time is the public safety market. This market uses lockers for a variety of applications- from duty bag lockers, weapons lockers, wardrobe lockers, and even evidence lockers. Each locker is unique and serves a different purpose- which is one reason why we offer the Freestyle locker by Spacesaver. This locker has the ultimate amount of configurations, allowing each officer to customize it to his or her needs. Evidence lockers are a little different, and can incorporate tracking and audit control, a refrigerated locker fit to store sexual assault kits, and various other configurations to ensure chain of custody. Evidence lockers can be custom designed to fit the amount of evidence each department takes in, and each locker can be designed to fit specific types of evidence.
Lockers don’t only have to be used for front of house storage, they can serve other purposes too. We have seen this a lot in the residential market. Apartment buildings, complexes, and other living facilities need tenant storage lockers so their residents can have extra space to securely store their belongings. BeastWire mesh storage lockers provide optimal circulation for air, light, and heat whereas a solid locker does not. All BeastWire panels have a welded wire mesh that is welded into an angle frame providing lasting protection.
Another kind of locker option is the phenolic locker. This type of material lends itself well to a more rugged use. This application is seen a lot in firehouses, public safety facilities, recreational areas, and aquatic centers.
