Lockers: What Can They Be Used For?

Posted on by Angeliki Georga

The most common use of lockers is to temporarily store personal items in order to keep them safe. Lockers are usually found in a variety of public spaces which include schools, gyms, workplaces, leisure centres and more. At Worxmart, we sell a wide range of high-quality lockers which can be used in different environments and to replace typical storage options. Let’s take a look at what some of those uses are.


Storage Facility for Students

Steel Lockers have proven to be one of the best storage solutions for students in Secondary school as well as in college. These lockers provide a space for students to store their personal belongings, such as books and stationery equipment. They are designed to withstand the general wear and tear of a day-to-day use within a school environment, and they come in a variety of sizes and designs depending on the type of school they are needed for.

It is also worth mentioning that the use of storage lockers in the educational institutes can teach young people the importance of time management, responsibility, and accountability; all very valuable qualities.


A Safe Place to Store Files & Documents

    Executive Lockers are an excellent storage solution when it comes to storing important files and documents. For use in smarter environments such as offices and staff rooms, executive lockers offer a modern and classy look by matching with most furniture colours and styles, whilst also assuring full safety and security of those important files and documents with the help of mastered cam locks.


    A Storage Place for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

    Workwear PPE Lockers are used to store the clean safety equipment that employees are required to wear while carrying out their activities. The workwear PPE lockers ensure they are safe and kept away from all harm and danger.

    An additional locker which is used to store PPE is the Garment Disposal Locker which is designed to store dirty workwear which need washing. This locker is fitted with a single door and a letterbox opening which is used to push garments through. Popular in the hospitality, food, and manufacturing industries.


    To Store & Charge Electronic Devices

    Charging Lockers can be used to charge various electronic devices such as mobile phones, laptops, power tools and more. They’re designed with rubber buffers and strengthened perforated doors which allow for ventilation while charging to prevent heat build-up.


    To Add to the Décor

    In addition to the storage facility, lockers can also add to the surrounding’s décor. Industrial styles became quite popular in the late 2000’s and continue to remain in style for homes, offices, hotels and more.

    Overall, lockers can be functional by providing a secure place for one’s personal belongings, while also enhance a surrounding’s décor by bringing that ‘warehouse’ feel.
