Industrial Locker room for your staff

May 6th, 2014 by admin Leave a reply »

At the heart of most industrial and manufacturing operations are the workforce required to complete the many labour intensive tasks. One of the facilities required to accommodate staff and included in the welfare and restroom facilities are the staff lockers used for storage of personal items for security purposes. MOst Locker rooms are equipped with the latest storage lockers to accommodate the individual requirements of the workforce that will use them. Locker Selector, based in the UK, provides employers with the storage lockers and changing room equipment normally found in such environments.

Industrial locker rooms are usually laid out to make the best out of the given space available, but do not always have enough space. At Locker Selector, we are faced with this situation 99 times out of 100. Space is always a factor, we have a wide range of options for just those purposes, Storage Lockers which been developed and redeveloped over the past 25 years to produce a storage based product which meets the needs of the industrial and manufacturing sectors.

The Options:

The standard requirement is for a locker user to have space to hang their clothes and store personal items and footwear. For most cases, a single door locker is required, which has storage space at the top of the locker and a long storage space for hanging garments and a space which will also allow for the users own footwear to be stored in the base of the locker. A single compartment locker!

A second requirement would be that the user is required to store their industrial workwear in the same locker as their own clothes. So, in simple terms, they need to store their clean clothes and their dirty clothes. They will also be required to store clean and dirty footwear and certainly some personal items, such as a bunch of keys, a wallet, a phone etc as well. The Clean & Dirty Locker.

An optional requirement to the standard would be a space related issue, whereby the locker areas are not large enough. The lockers would need to be smaller to accommodate the number of workers. For a situation where full length hanging is required and a single compartment locker is not feasible, we have two options. Two slimline single compartment lockers are provided as a single unit: The Twin Locker! As an extension to this, we have developed a locker which allows for a three quarter length hanging compartment as well as a full width personal effects compartment. The 2-Person Locker!

Sometimes, it is just as effective to increase the number of compartments in the height and for sure, provides for a more cost effective option, but there is a compromise.The Two Compartment Locker!

Lockers with more compartments in the height have less space per compartment and have less features. For example, the ability to hang items such as jackets or other garments within a locker is restricted to single and two compartment lockers. With three or more compartments in the height, the amount of space is restricted further. Hanging rails can only be fitted to single and two compartment lockers.

Keeping the locking system as simple as possible is usually (or can be) the most critical part of an industrial locker room installation. Key locks or Hasp and Staple locks for padlocks are the better ways to keep things simple. Combination locks are available and a certain situations can work. Unfortunately, there is only really one combination lock which works best for situations where agency staff are used on a frequent shift by shift basis, with lockers being emptied at the end of each shift.

Additional items such as locker room bench seating can also be supplied, depending on space, with the range of product options available to view here.
