Workplace Lockers at Bolton Council

Workplace Lockers at Bolton Council


At 3D Lockers we have over 30 years experience in the storage industry. We provide storage solutions for a wide range of environments. Including workplaces and also staff rooms.  Our workplace lockers and quarto lockers are the ideal choice for our latest project.


Nearing the end of 2014 3D Lockers had a call to go in to Bolton Council. A site survey was undertaken to measure a room for new staff lockers.  The site at Bolton Council is the environmental services depot at Ellesmere Road. Workers there service and maintain public spaces such as parks, street care and cleaning, grass cutting & verge maintenance.


The brief from the council:

  • Three long runs of lockers
  • Each to be on separate walls to cater for nearly 100 members of staff
  • The lockers must to be big enough to store wet clothing, jackets, boots and lunchboxes
  • One run of lockers needs to accommodate an extra compartment to store bike helmets
  • This is for workers who motor bike in to work.


Firstly, they chose two door metal lockers with door perforations, green doors and camlocks.  Door perforations are great for storing wet clothing inside. It allows for ventilation and drying.  In the top of each compartment is an additional shelf. This is so boots or bags are kept separate. Double coat hooks come underneath the shelf.  All lockers have sloping tops.


The work lockers were mainly in nests of three. This means the lockers have a join together in the middle during manufacture. This saves on installation time and cost.  Our installation team were unable to carry out the procedure of battening the lockers to the wall. (this was to be done due to some electrics running along the wall) so metal straps were made up to separate the lockers away from the wall. This will prevent the lockers from pulling forwards.


Finally, our quarto lockers fit on top of one run of lockers.  These mini lockers are the same width and depth to fit perfectly above. This creates an extra compartment for storing away bike helmets.  The keys have the same code for the top quarto locker and locker underneath.  So the same keys will therefore open both lockers.  They also chose to have number plates along with matching number key fobs. A numbering system makes it easy for employees to identify their workplace locker.


The installation was complete over two days and the Council and its staff are delighted with the end result.
