Over a 20-year period, tremendous savings are realized by investing in Duralife Lockers compared to investing in metal lockers. The above chart takes into account the initial costs of maintenance, dent and scratch repair, repainting, graffiti removal and replacement of damaged and corroded parts to create a cost of ownership model. Within 2 years, HDPE lockers are less expensive than metal lockers. In 20 years, the accumulated savings are substantial.
Stepped/2-step lockers are two-tier lockers, usually available only in 15-inch (38-cm.) width; but the compartments and their doors have an L-shaped cross-section, which causes the division between the doors to follow a zigzag pattern. This configuration enables more hanging height to be included in both upper and lower lockers; but part of each compartment (the lower part of the upper one and the upper part of the lower one) will be only half the usual width of two-tier lockers.
Lockers is a new information and education resource. It assists schools in coping with and preventing the sharing of explicit self-generated images of minors. Intended for use with Junior Cycle SPHE classes, Lockers is supported by a newly developed animation and six lesson plans. Also included in Lockers is an information section for school leaders.
