When you hear the word “locker,” you probably have flashbacks to your junior high or high school days (and maybe cringe when you remember those recurring nightmares about forgetting your combination!). Contrary to what many people might think, lockers have many other uses other than just in schools. And while we do sell lots of them to schools, that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to all of the different types of customers we work with on a regular basis. Check out the infographic below to find out who we sell so many lockers to!
One of the questions we are frequently asked is if it’s better to purchase lockers assembled or unassembled. And truthfully, there is no right or wrong answer. While there are advantages and disadvantages to both, it really depends on your manpower, resources and capabilities. To make the decision a little bit easier for you, here are some reasons you might choose to order your lockers assembled or unassembled.
The good thing about lockers is that they’re so versatile and available in so many different sizes, styles, colors and materials! But which is best for your specific needs–metal, plastic or wood lockers?
To put it simply, choose metal lockers when you’re looking for something that meets the needs of most locker requirements at the lowest price. Plastic lockers are generally your most expensive option, but are highly recommended if they’ll be exposed to high amounts of moisture or corrosive elements. Wood lockers are a good choice if you want to add a touch of beauty, warmth and elegance to your space.
