Choosing the Right Storage Lockers

Posted By on Apr 26, 2018 |

Did you know that there are over one hundred different types of school lockers available today? Some are thin and tall, others are stacked in tiers up to six lockers high. Still others have separate compartments so that students have a separate place to store books as opposed to jackets. So if you are a school administrator looking to make a purchase of new school lockers, how do you go about choosing the right storage lockers?

The first step is not to rush in and choose what looks like a great deal but will end up being the wrong school lockers for your school. If you purchase small stacked lockers, then on the first cold day of school you will end up with hallways filled with coats and boots. Purchase lockers that are too big, and you may run out of room in your school to put them.

The good news is that it is possible to sort through all the choices and find the right storage lockers for your school. You just have to start out by evaluating not only the storage needs of your student body, but also what your school can reasonably accommodate. Don’t assume that you can always find more room by setting up lockers in hallways. Often the noise from locker areas is extremely distracting for nearby classrooms. You need to earmark existing space that is both far enough away from classrooms so that there will be no interference, yet close enough so that students can easily visit school lockers to retrieve textbooks and notebooks in between classes.

One way that schools have gone about making wise locker choices is by bringing in a locker room expert for a consultation. While selecting and setting up locker areas may be something completely new for you, others have done this over and over again for a wide range of schools. You don’t have to reinvent the wheel to find storage lockers that will serve your school well. Use the expertise that is available, often free of charge, from school locker vendors.

If you do things right, there is no reason why you cannot make a school locker choice for your school that will serve your students’ needs, use existing school space, and save your school money in the long run.
