Choosing the right lockers for your school can be challenging, but Duralife Lockers make the decision easier. Constructed from HDPE, Duralife Lockers offer facility managers and school officials low maintenance, durability, and an aesthetically pleasing locker solution that outperforms traditional metal lockers. These lockers are ideal for elementary, middle school and high school lockers.

Perforated lockers are similar to the standard types of locker, but the door and walls are made largely or entirely of perforated steel, with hundreds of holes creating a strong mesh arranged in a diagonal pattern. This is used where good ventilation is required, or where, for security reasons, it is necessary that the contents can be examined visually while the doors are locked.
If you are looking for something heavy-duty, or that offers more ventilation, then consider our athletic gym lockers. These showcase our heavier gauge steel all around, which provides your facility with a sturdy storage option. The body and frame are crafted from 16-gauge steel with diamond perforated sides to increase ventilation. Each locker door is then crafted from 14-gauge steel to further increase the toughness and durability. Diamond perforations are also on each door to create the maximum amount of aeration possible which helps to keep locker contents aired out and your locker room smelling fresh and clean. Created specifically for environments with heavier traffic, these are ideal for warehouses, school locker rooms, and training centers which all benefit from the heavier gauge steel that we offer. Available in single tier, double tier, or box styles in beige or gray colors; these also have the advantage of being in our quick ship collection so that you’ll receive them fast.

Steel thickness: lockers tend to be made from a standard thickness of steel, which is commonly 0.8 mm. thick; but heavy-duty or high-security lockers are offered as a standard option by some manufacturers, or may be available on special order. A typical locker of this sort may be constructed from steel 1.2 mm. thick, for example, and is usually fitted with three-point locking, regardless of the number of tiers.
Got the first lock out, was impressed with the feel and the setup. Thought to myself, what a good deal. However, the second of the two locks I received is defective. Will not lock period, or set. Went through setting instructions, still nothing. I have owned quite a few of this type of combination locks so I am familiar with how they work. Makes me very, very nervous to use the other one now.

Your industrial-style loft melds hardwood floors, exposed duct work, and stainless steel appliances beautifully, but the struggle is creating a cohesive design with your decor. Mix new and old, cold metal and warm woods to fit this style, and start with a signature piece, such as used school lockers. These lockers are industrial in nature, and whether the metal is flawlessly finished in a bright color or boasts naturally-occurring rust from years of neglect, they fit in with this design style. Used school lockers also offer a functional storage space in various sizes, with lockers as small as 12 inches by 12 inches, and as large as 30 inches by 66 inches. Once you decide on your lockers, keep your storage solution as functional as possible with a school locker organizer to make the most of the space with hanging shelves or small magnetic holders. School locker magnets can be that extra little space you need to hold pens, business cards, reminder lists, and other small items. Finding the right design pieces for your industrial-style loft can be somewhat difficult, but the sellers on eBay have you covered with a large selection of vintage items like school lockers.
I have 4 kids under age 5 and was constantly bothered by their coats and shoes being lost all over the house. This has been fantastic for organizing all their hats, gloves, shoes, boots, coats, jackets, backpacks, etc. It has held up very well despite being packed with more than I ever expected to fit in it. The kids know as soon as they walk in the door to go hang up their coats and backpacks and to put their shoes in their cubbies. I anticipate being able to use this for at least 10 years to come. It's incredibly sturdy and well-made. My husband assembled it in less than an hour and the directions were very clear.
Gun lockers or safes are specifically designed for the secure storage of guns and ammunition. They broadly resemble normal single-tier lockers, but tend to be slightly less high than normal single-tier lockers, and are often free-standing, and not banked together. They are fitted with internal racks designed for holding firearms. They have a shelf at the top like normal single-tier lockers, although in this case it is closed and locked by a separate door, because of legal requirements in some countries that firearms and ammunition be stored and locked separately. They always lock with three-point locking, which is in some countries a legal requirement for the storage of firearms. Sometimes they are made of the standard kind of sheet steel used in manufacturing normal lockers, and sometimes they are made of extremely thick heavy-duty steel and in this case resemble a safe more than a normal locker. In Australia there are strict regulations governing the storage of firearms following the Port Arthur massacre in Tasmania, Australia on 28 April 1996, and cabinets used for storing firearms must be bolted to the floor or a wall if the cabinet is under a certain weight. Dedicated gun lockers are likely to include holes in the cabinet to accommodate such bolting. Several locker manufacturers also offer dedicated gun lockers.
Locker doors usually have some kind of ventilation to provide for the flow of air to aid in cleanliness. These vents usually take the form of a series of horizontal angled slats at the top and bottom of the door, although sometimes parallel rows of small square or rectangular holes are found instead, running up and down the door. Less often, the side or rear walls may also have similar ventilation.

Steel thickness: lockers tend to be made from a standard thickness of steel, which is commonly 0.8 mm. thick; but heavy-duty or high-security lockers are offered as a standard option by some manufacturers, or may be available on special order. A typical locker of this sort may be constructed from steel 1.2 mm. thick, for example, and is usually fitted with three-point locking, regardless of the number of tiers.
No matter the class size or variety, school lockers are a must. Between the mix of classes, clubs, sports, and productions, there are a lot of books, uniforms, bags, homework, jackets, and everything in between. A locker is a home base for not only schoolwork, but a social spot for friends, the one place where students know that they and their belongings are secure. From hallway lockers to locker rooms, from preschool through college, we have every kind of locker for school that you could possibly need.

Tiers: may be specified as single-tier (full height), two-tier, three-tier, etc., meaning that the lockers are stacked on top of each other in layers two high, three high, etc. Tiers are commonly up to eight high; on occasion, even more tiers may be found, in the case of very small lockers for such purposes as storing laptop computers. The most common numbers of tiers found in lockers are, in order, one, two, and four; three-tier lockers are rather less common, and other numbers such as five, six, or eight even less common still - seven almost non-existent. Since locker cabinets are most commonly 6 feet (182.9 cm.) high (although there are exceptions), the height of individual lockers varies according to how many tiers are accommodated within the cabinet. The height of individual lockers is usually approximately 6 feet (182.9 cm.) divided by the number of tiers, so that two-tier lockers are about 3 feet (91.4 cm.) high, three-tier lockers 2 feet (61 cm.) high, four-tier lockers 1.5 feet (45.7 cm.) high, and so on. Standard features often vary according to the number of tiers: single-tier lockers usually include a shelf about a foot (roughly 30 cm.) from the top, and a hanging rail (sometimes with one or two hooks) immediately underneath that, at the top of the large compartment beneath the shelf; two- or three-tier lockers usually lack the shelf, but include the hanging rail; lockers with four or more tiers usually have none of these fittings, but consist of just the bare compartment.
