Employee dressing room lockers must be able to store both equipment and clothing. They must also be super resilient. This is because they are often installed in Industrial work areas where environmental conditions are far from ideal. Protective gear, special tools work boots, valuable, uniforms and clothing for daily life must all be stored in these lockers at some point or another.
They must therefore be tough enough to withstand constant wear and tear, secure enough to store sensitive equipment and valuables, and have segmented compartments that allow different types of items to be organized efficiently.
Lockers are made from either plastic or metal. Plastic is becoming more highly favored as a construction material for a number of reasons. When it is molded in the factory, it is dyed the desired color prior to being shaped into its final form.
This means that solid plastic lockers, like the Lenox® brand, never require repainting. The quality of the material is such that it also resists the dents and scratches that notoriously plagued metal lockers in the past. Most importantly, however, it resists all forms of corrosion.
Plastic employee dressing room lockers are ideal for Industrial port environments with heavy salt air content. They are also the preferred choice for industrial environments where the atmosphere contains a high level of pollutants.
Solid plastic, however, may not be the best choice for environments that require a more aesthetic look. When a more sophisticated look is needed, designer lockers are a better choice. These lockers are made from particle board, but they are laminated with ornamental, colored plastic that gives them the ability to resistance to impact and humidity.
Still other environments have neither the need for corrosion nor impact resistance. Employee dressing room lockers in these locations are typically made from heavy duty metal. The sizes of these lockers are based upon what needs to be stored within them. Some are extra wide to provide both clothing and equipment storage. Others are standard width and are used mostly for clothing storage.
When very little storage space is needed, comparatively speaking, 2 tier lockers provide a compact area for the storage of personal belongings and valuables. Many organizations now require that purses, cell phones, smart phones, and other hand-held devices be locked up at the beginning of the shift.
Metal employee dressing room lockers are typically less expensive than designer and solid plastic equivalents. When there is no need to resist corrosion, and there is little risk of abuse, then any standard metal lockers, one tier metal lockers, and two tier metal lockers are a much more cost effective choice for the average company, retail store, or office that requires storage space for individual workers.
For the storage of uniforms that may be dirty or sweaty, however, it is recommended that certain organizations invest in vented metal employee dressing room lockers that allow air to circulate through the interior. Venting prevents odor, mold, and mildew from building up. It also protects the interior of the locker from corrosion.
