Solid Plastic Lockers are the Best Storage Option for Water Park Designers

March 31st, 2011 by

The rugged construction and humidity resistance of solid plastic lockers makes them ideal for the heavy demands of water park design. Made from a superior solid surface plastic called HDPE, they are far better than metal when it comes to keeping locker rooms clean, odor free, and clothing dry for people of all ages.

31 possible colors make it possible to support any water park design. Colors are solid throughout the plastic so you do not have to paint these units. You can also have them customized in a number of ways to enhance their aesthetic.

If you work in water park design, you already know that you have to accommodate people of all ages who come to your park. People of different ages and heights need different sized lockers to store clothing and valuables. They need to keep these items dry and wrinkle free.

Solid plastic lockers will do both things for your park much more effectively than metal. You can buy them in sizes ranging from 24 inches in height to 72 inches in height. HDPE blocks humidity, ensuring that watches and clothing stay dry.

You can order vertical solid plastic lockers or bench locker designs in order to make your locker room truly accessible to everyone. Bench lockers are great for individuals with physical challenges ideal because you can store things in them without having to reach upwards.

Not only are they convenient, but solid plastic lockers for water park designs are also highly secure. Lockers come with a standard stainless steel hasp that supports a padlock. You can, however, have them custom ordered with built-in key locks or built-in combination locks.

You will receive a return on investment comes because of the long-term durability and vandal resistance that characterize HDPE lockers. While you do not make money off of restrooms and locker rooms the same way you make them off ticket sales and park attractions, you nevertheless make money back by never having to spend it on repair and replacement costs that are sure to come if you buy cheaper metal lockers that will rust and suffer damage from vandalism.

Impact resistance makes it difficult to even scratch or dent these units. The major denting and door breakage that vandals inflict on metal lockers does not happen with HDPE plastic equivalents. Graffiti is also easy to get rid of with any cleaner, and it will not leave a permanent trace mark like it does on certain metals.

So it is much better to spend a little more money now by adding solid plastic lockers to your water park design. They will last you for at least 20 years, and that are backed up by a full manufacturer 20 year replacement warranty.

Baskets and Bins Organizers

March 29th, 2011 by

Baskets and bins organizers are simple storage compartments that bring great benefit to any environment where there is a need to store and to organize smaller items.

For example, these basket lockers are used in some art supply and hobby stores that need to keep the most popular paints, glues, and brushes behind the counter so customers can have quick access to their most routinely purchased supplies.

This is also done in garages, where it is actually a necessity for business even more than it is a courtesy. This is because garages have only a very small store front to begin with and almost no wall space for shelving. Baskets and bins organizers are really the only way to store basic parts and supplies and to keep them organized for inventory tracking purposes.

Auto parts stores with built-in should consider using basket locker organizers for both their behind the counter storage area and their warehouse area. They can organize the most sought after items behind the counter for the sake of customer convenience.

The warehouse area behind the glass can also be organized. Because each basket is 13 inches deep and measures 40 inches by 31 inches, it has plenty of space to store larger engine parts and auto supplies.

Gyms can also use locker baskets and bins organizers to give their customers convenient, personal storage areas. Baskets can be locked with personal combination locks or padlocks.

In warehouses, where you have to store many products on shelves and large racks, and where pallet racking takes up tremendous amounts of the vertical cube, you can easily get confused as to where all the small stuff got put. Well, with locker baskets and bins storage units you can avoid this confusion by organizing all the smaller items in corner.

Finally, basket and bins organizer lockers are great for kids in elementary school. They make kids feel special by having their own personal place to put various items of significance. They also teach children that things like cell phones and games have to be put up and only taken out at certain times.

Storage Lockers for Employee Breakrooms

March 26th, 2011 by

Storage lockers installed in employee breakrooms will improve working conditions, contribute to better savings and profits, and reduce business liability.

Every business has problems with theft. No matter where a purse, a laptop, or electronic device is placed, it is vulnerable to being carried away unless it is locked up. Storing these things in one’s car is not always safe, nor is it practical.

However, such items will be safe when placed in storage lockers, and the best place to locate the storage area is in the employee breakroom itself. There are two primary reasons for this. One is centrality, and the other is accountability.

A centrally located storage area allows everyone to get their belongings into the storage locker quickly and get to their station on time. If the time clock is located in the break area, it also requires people to go right past the clock before they get their things, and it reminds them to punch in and out.

Employee breakrooms are much safer than unattended vehicle. There are people coming in and out of the break area throughout the day. While there is no guarantee of a thief getting caught, a simple security camera pointed at the storage lockers keeps everyone accountable.

Steps like this reduce liability and costs across the board for any organization that will take in them. On other levels, storage lockers are vital to the successful operation of an organization itself. Police and fire fighters use lockers to store their equipment and uniforms. This minimizes equipment loss by consolidating it into a central storage area.

In hospitals, lockers in employee breakroom lockers help maintain a sanitary environment by strictly separating employee clothing and personal belongings from patient areas and corridors.

Placing lockers in retail and restaurant employee break areas helps bolster discipline and morale. It has a remarkable way of trapping the ubiquitous cell phone in the breakroom where it belongs. It prevents cell phones from being stolen, and from employees who have their cell phone stolen from launching tirades against suspected coworkers.

Keeping belongings safe in a locked, personal compartment prevents such dramatic outbursts from occurring.

Wood Benches

March 22nd, 2011 by
Share

Even in our modern age obsessed with metal and plastic, wood benches are still in high demand in certain places where nothing but wooden furniture looks truly complementary to a natural scene.

One application where they have readily found a home is in historical restoration projects. Central town squares are being renovated all over the country and made to look they did in the 19th and 20th centuries. Wooden benches add a truly authentic look to the scene wherever they are placed because they very closely approximate seating that was used during simpler, more rustic times in our past.

It also goes without saying that wood benches are good for any park. They naturally complement trees and natural vegetation. In parks where a fee is charged for entrance, they also provide a key attraction factor that brings in a tangible return on investment.

Wood benches characterized by a superior level of craftsmanship are also used in theme parks with a nature oriented purpose. Zoo and wildlife parks are two good examples of settings where a very pristine environment must be maintained to keep resident animals calm in what feels like a natural environment to their senses. Wooden furniture blends in here just like it would in a public or state park. If the wood is properly treated, it will also endure the elements quite well.

Wood benches are a great alternative to concrete benches for organizations who have grown tired of replacing expensive concrete benches that have been destroyed by vandals.

Concrete doesn’t just break when it is vandalized. It falls into piles of rubble. Wood, while not impervious to vandalism by any stretch of the imagination, nevertheless will leave less of a mess if someone does deliberately destroy them. Because wood is fibrous, it breaks and splinters around the point of impact trauma rather than falling into pieces everywhere.

Roadside parks and scenic overlooks that have been destroyed by vandals can now be refurbished with wood benches that looks even more appropriately matched to scenic settings. This is not to say that in areas of high vandalism that wooden materials will never have to be replaced themselves.

What is to be said is the simple fact that repairs to wooden facilities are much less expensive for government agencies that replacement of multiple pieces of expensive outdoor concrete furniture which can be broken with a large rock with a single blow.

Outdoor Tables for Picnics and Special Events

March 19th, 2011 by

Outdoor picnic tables offer you convenience and vandal resistant security

If your particular facility sees little likelihood of theft or vandalism, you can buy portable or free standing outdoor tables that you can quickly move in and out of storage. These are favored table types by cities who throw outdoor celebrations for summer holidays. They are also a cost effective, easy-to-store choice for churches who hold outdoor activities.

If you need to make sure your table legs do not mysteriously walk away, however, there are two ways to anchor any of our models to the ground. One way is to bolt table legs directly into concrete. The other is to use leg extensions surrounded by concrete moorings to anchor the outdoor table directly to the earth.

The composition of today’s outdoor picnic table makes them vandal and weather resistant.

Wooden outdoor tables are made of tough, treated wood and are as weather resistant as a natural material can be expected to be. Teak wood is one of the best choices in wood, and it features a high-end look that makes it perfect for any diner patio, lakeside resort, or hotel swimming pool seating area.

The most water resistant outdoor picnic tables, however, are either plastic or thermoplastic coated metal. These tables feature a nonabsorbent surface that causes water to bead and harmlessly evaporate. Of the two outdoor table types, thermoplastic options are the most versatile and durable.

Thermoplastic is a special substance electrostatically applied to metal. It makes the metal rust resistant and keeps pain color from fading. It is also easy to repair if cut. A heat gun can be used to close the cut seamlessly if an act of vandalism occurs.

Outdoor picnic table designs are now so diverse that you can find what you need no matter what type of facility grounds you have.

You have a huge number of sizes, shapes, and seating options from which to choose. We recommend that in most cases you invest in an outdoor table with a bench seat design. This type of table has seats built into the frame. You can compliment your building architecture, landscape design with shapes ranging from circular to rectangular, to oval and octagonal table tops. Size selection should be based upon the number of people you anticipate at each table.

If you have children at your facility you should buy one of our special outdoor picnic tables designed specifically for children. Children get excited at the table and may bump the edge or even fall off their seats. Children’s tables have lower bench seats and rounded table tops that minimize the risk of injury in either case.

Stackable Chairs are Ideal for Indoor and Outdoor Use

March 17th, 2011 by
Share


Stackable chairs can be stored in small storage areas and then be taken out to fill huge areas that need individualized seating arrangements for a variety of events.

Stackable chairs allow hotels to customize their meeting rooms to any type of event.

Hotels can increase their revenues by making themselves more event-friendly to a diversity of organizations. Most churches begin without a building and typically move out of the pastor’s living room into a nearby hotel meeting room. Stackable chairs will work just fine for seating in a growing congregation. It may even motivate them to donate more money to build a church building with more comfortable pews.

Stackable chairs provide convenient seating for outdoor pavilions.

Many large city parks have pavilions that park visitors can use for all kinds of events. These occasions include birthday parties, family reunions, and wedding receptions. Portable tables and chairs allow park guests to create their own seating arrangements. Guests are personally accommodated in a fashion that fixed seating will not necessarily always provide.

Stackable chairs allow small schools to turn gymnasiums into auditoriums.

People have no idea how many schools there are in this great country of ours that are too small to have a school auditorium. Students must go to the gymnasium any time there is a school assembly. These kids deserve more than an uncomfortable seat in the bleachers. They also need a better vantage point that will encourage them to focus their undivided attention on a presenter who has something important to share with them.

Stackable metal chairs allow these smaller schools to turn the gym into an auditorium in a few short minutes.

The speech department can loan the speaker a podium and a microphone, and the chairs can be arranged in slightly semicircular rows that allow students to see around one another’s shoulders and clearly hear the speaker. This setup looks something like an amphitheater when viewed from the top down. Not only is it visually effective and mentally focused, but it also creates a better acoustic in the assembly.

Stackable chairs are used by churches that hold activities outside the main worship center.

Churches hold outdoor gatherings to build community among their membership. They also hold outdoor engagements open to people who are seeking faith in their own lives. The freedom that portable seating offers such an occasion is obvious. It allows for large assemblies to be organized on a congregational level, then break up into small groups after a sermon, a song, or a meal.

Urinal Partitions

March 15th, 2011 by
Share


Urinal partitions are used to create barriers between separate urinals. To some extent or the other, all resist moisture, rust, and vandalism. They are therefore easy to clean, and they can last for decades.

Different types of materials like baked enamel, solid plastic, plastic laminate, and stainless steel represent are used to make urinal partitions. All kinds of styles and sizes, as well as different colors, can be purchased to match any interior architecture.

You should think about several things when you choose a style and design.

The upfront cost is the first thing to think about. While some materials might not be as impervious to rust and vandalism as stainless steel, it makes sense to pay for something cheaper that will get the job done almost as well.

Climate is another consideration. Humidity affects things. Facilities along the Gulf Coast need to think about how moisture content will affect partition material. It pays off to invest in something that will resist humidity and minimize the chances of corrosion.

Vandalism is another big consideration. When people write on partitions, the things they write offend other people. This is never good for an organization’s reputation.

While there is no stopping people from doing this, we can stop the results of what they do. We can all use urinal partitions made of nonporous materials. If the moisture in the ink or paint is blocked, then the mess can be wiped off with a towel and basic cleaning fluids.

Stainless steel is the most vandal resistant substance on the market. It has its own attractive sheen too, so when it is cleaned, it does not need to be resurfaced or repainted.

Phenolic partitions are the very next best thing to stainless steel. Phenolic will resists moisture, bacteria, and oil. It is almost as hard to damage as stainless steel, so many health conscious organizations opt for it.

Plastic and baked enamel also offer a certain amount of moisture resistance. In areas where traffic is low, or in restrooms where vandals are very unlikely to be found, you can use these more affordable urinal partitions and they will serve you very well.

Color choices make it possible for you to choose any look you want no matter what size urinal partition you select, or what type of material it is made from. Large restrooms that have a noticeable flair for décor can complimented with special colors. Smaller, simpler rooms can be decorated with basic colors.

Portable Metal Picnic Tables

March 14th, 2011 by

Portable metal picnic tables can be used for any indoor or outdoor event. Thanks to attractive designs and a multitude of color options, there is something for every organization in our online inventory.

City parks use portable metal picnic tables for holiday events.

Almost everyone has been to a Fourth of July Party at a public park at some point in their lives. You probably didn’t even notice the last time you went that you were sitting at a metal table because it was covered by a red white and blue tablecloth. Well, the truth is, the park took something very affordable, practical, simple, and convenient, and turned it into a holiday extravaganza.

Churches use portable tables, along with stackable chairs, for special gatherings.

Portable metal picnic tables go hand in hand with our stackable metal chairs. Churches represent a significant societal segment that relies upon both for indoor and outdoor gatherings. Most churches have ancillary buildings they use for social gatherings. They also host all manner of public events outside. Portable tables, along with portable chairs, allow them to quickly setup everything from seminars, study groups, outreach programs, and dinner events.

Event planners rely on portable metal picnic tables when they plan conventions.

A convention hall is basically a giant room with no personality. Event planners have to decorate the facility to give a personality a face that expresses the character of the event. That being said, there is more to making the room attractive than decorating the walls. Arranging seating and tables is extremely important to the flow of energy that transpires during the event. Tables come in many different colors that make them equally useful to such indoor events. It goes without saying that because they are picnic tables that they work even better at outdoor conventions.

County fairs use metal picnic tables and stackable metal chairs to set up concession areas.

We have all been to a county fair, and we have all been driven to eat by the smell of food in the air. It doesn’t matter how much we ate before we got there, we have to eat more once we arrive. Portable metal picnic tables give us a place to sit while we indulge ourselves. The fact that they are portable allows fair coordinators to set up eating areas all over the fairgrounds. This way no one escapes from the smell of food, and no one has to stand their looking silly while they try to hold an armful of food that would work better if it was laid on a table.
