- Locker assembly is time consuming for most customers. Ordering assembled lockers saves you time, labor costs and effort.
- Assembly requires connecting and tightening 45-60 nuts and bolts per vertical column (1 locker). You will likely have to use the nuts and bolts provided, where we use a riveting production process with pneumatic riveters.
- Assembling lockers is similar to assembling an entertainment center from a box with lots of parts and pieces to line up and connect together. We've all been there.
- When you choose to order your lockers assembled, they arrive in groups ready to connect together and set in place. It is highly recommended that lockers be anchored to the wall or the floor for safety reasons.
- Your labor costs may be higher or you may be required to pay union or prevailing wages.
- Many of our customers that order unassembled lockers call us back and thank us for the quality of lockers provided, and express regret that they did not order assembled lockers. We are frequently told by these customers that assembly took longer than anticipated, required more man power, and was overall a frustrating experience. If they were to do it over again, they would order assembled lockers.
Some reasons you should order your lockers unassembled include:
- Assembly does not require special tools or skills, just a 3/8" nut driver or wrench.
- If you've built any kind of pre-fabricated wood furniture (shelf unit, TV stand, entertainment center, computer desk, etc.) then you will be able to assemble lockers.
- You are a residential customer and would like to have a quality project to complete with your kids. We highly recommend unassembled lockers to residential customers, especially for kids' locker products because many of them can be shipped via UPS; which costs substantially less than shipping via standard freight carriers.
- You are ordering a small quantity of lockers, which makes for easier assembly.
- You are looking for lower overall landed cost for lockers and shipping.
- Assembled lockers are more prone to damage during transit.
- Assembly instructions are provided throughout the site for each item or click here for general assembly instructions.
- Pictures of the outside and inside views of the lockers emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Size(s) of the lockers in inches (width, then depth, then height).
- Quantity of the lockers. How many total vertical columns and how many total lockers/doors?
- Where will your lockers ship from (city, state and zip code)?
- Will you be able to remove and load the lockers with your own personnel, or will we need to provide crews to remove and load them?
- When will the lockers be available or need to be removed?

- Locker Locks. Common options include combination padlocks, or built-in combination locks, or built-in key locks, but other locks such as coin operated, keyed padlock, and so forth are also used.
- Locker Bases. Front and end locker bases enclose the space between the locker legs for a finished look that is easy to keep clean. Continuous "zee" or "channel" bases are common on large projects.
- Locker Room Benches. A locker room is not complete without benches to sit on while changing.
- Sloped Locker Tops. Individual sloped top kits convert flat top lockers to sloped top lockers. Continuous heavy gauge sloped hoods are commonly used for large projects.
- Locker End Panels. Either heavier gauge ends or premium boxed ends are available for row ends.
- Filler Panels. Are used to bridge gaps between the end of a run of lockers and the wall. They create a professional, polished look when the lockers don't take up the full wall-to-wall space.
