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.
Other advocates of lockerless schools also cite reasons such as reducing noise by eliminating the clang of dozens of locker doors, or creating a more appealing environment aesthetically. It has also been claimed that removing lockers provides good training for students by forcing them to be more efficient in managing their books, and taking the time to plan what books they will need, and carrying only those ones.
Half door and two person lockers use as much space as a single full door locker, but they are split into two units, which doubles the number of lockers overall. These are extremely popular because they are a nice middle ground between full door and box lockers. They provide a moderate amount of storage space while also being more efficient on overall space than full door lockers. Used half door lockers are one unit over the other, each unit being the same with as a full door locker. Two person lockers are two vertical units side by side, which are the same width as one full door locker as well. They also have two small shelves overhead for storage of small items.
I purchased these lockers for my husbands engineering office. Several of the men do field work and when they are in the office their STUFF is all over the place. The lockers depth of 18" is plenty wide to accommodate a regular clothes hanger without crowding or having to force it in. It will hold a jacket or rain gear, steel toe or rubber boots as well as a tool belt or small tool kit.
Locking options: various types of key locking or padlocking facility are available now. Key locking options include flush locks, cam locks, or locks incorporated into a rotating handle; padlocking facilities may be a simple hasp and staple, or else a padlocking hole may be included in a handle, often called a latchlock. More modern designs include keyless operation, either by coin deposit (which may or may not be returned when use of the locker terminates), or by using electronic keypads to enter passwords for later reopening the locker. Some older lockers used a drop-latch which was incorporated into the door handle, and slid up and down and could be padlocked at the bottom in the "down" position, but these are less used now. Three-point locking is not possible with this type of latch, because it needs to be operated by means of a latch that rotates rather than slides up and down; so this drop-latch is probably a less secure locking option, which may be why it is little used nowadays. Prefect Combination locks are very popular in school lockers used in the UK due to their ease of use and the time and cost saved in the removal of locker keys.
With the same standard features as the Traditional line, the Traditional Plus Collection is intended for more rugged applications and has matching finish on all sides and top for a finished look. Phenolic Lockers are the material of choice when a high degree of design flexibility is desired or where durability and strength are required. These lockers are fabricated to stand the test of time. The dense components, combined with stainless steel brackets and fasteners, stand up to the most extreme conditions of moisture and humidity. Phenolic is impact, water and corrosion resistant, and does not support bacteria.

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.
