In schools without lockers, students are sometimes provided with two complete sets of textbooks, one set being kept at school for use in class, and the other being kept at home for referring to for homework, thus limiting the amount of heavy carrying that would otherwise be required without having lockers to store them in between classes. However, research has shown an increase in the incidence of back injuries in some students, which has been directly attributed to the lack of lockers for storing books in, thus forcing students to spend more time carrying heavy loads of books in backpacks.
Bicycle lockers are usually in outdoor locations near railway stations and the like where people may want to store bicycles securely. They are often banked together, with individual lockers shaped like an isosceles triangle for efficient and compact storage of a bicycle. This triangular shape permits the lockers to be grouped either in a radial pattern (with the sharpest points of the lockers together), or in a row in alternating orientations.
Used for use in schools and gym locker rooms. Door handles on these quiet lockers feature a fingertip lift latch recessed into the door face to provide a smooth catch-free surface that discourages the padlock from being cut off. These quality gym lockers feature 16 gauge steel doors, 5-knuckle security hinges and welded, reinforced frame-and-door assemblies. Extra wide louvers promote ventilation. Locker legs add 6" to height. Durable, attractive powder coat finish is available in the 3 most popular locker colors: Blue, Tan and Gray. Employee lockers include blank number plates. Optional locks, numbered plate kits and bases sold separately.
Sloping tops: while most lockers have flat tops, some manufacturers offer the option of sloping tops to their range of lockers. The slope may be of either 30 degrees or 45 degrees to the horizontal, sloping towards the front, and the purpose of this is to make it impossible to store items on top of the lockers, or to make it harder for dust or other debris to accumulate there. This is an important factor in places like food-processing factories or restaurants where hygiene requirements must be met.
