I have a vague recollection of turning up at school with my plimsols, running shorts and my oh so bright and tight obligatory sports shirt. I remember where we stored them all whilst we were having lessons, only to have to swap them over with our school uniforms when Mr. Skinner insisted we jog miles around the school playing grounds during PE. Yes, we stored them in the wire mesh lockers next to the absolutely freezing cold changing rooms!
Well now, big businesses have cottoned on to the fact that these simple storage devices are actually very functional and cost effective. We have recently supplied a regular customer in the logistics industry with 35 units, delivered to multiple sites in Lancashire and Essex ahead of the peak rush for Black Friday and the Christmas online surge of orders that this time of year produces.
The lockers are used for full time staff and also agency workers who are employed during this period. They allow for the safe storage of clothing and personal belongings whilst offering security personnel the ability to easily see into the units and check that only the correct items are being stored.
Each unit was supplied with 20 internal compartments fitted with individual doors. The compartment size is 305mm high x 305mm wide x 457mm deep. The overall size of the unit is 1370mm high x 1515mm wide x 457mm deep and they are easily free standing whilst being able to 'butt' up end to end with other units.
The construction is from 25mm x 25mm x 2.5mm weld mesh held within a 8mm dia rod frame and the finish is electroplated zinc which provides a level of protection against the elements and wet environments. A powder coating finish in a variety of colours with a more aesthetic look is also available.
There are various standard ranges of other sizes available, all with various compartment options. When standard ranges of mesh lockers and clothes lockers aren't suitable for a company’s needs, bespoke made lockers are the answer. These can be fabricated to a size that fit requirements, with a zinc electroplated or powder coated finish. Powder coating offers a choice of colours, so can be made to compliment any colour schemes within companies.
