Choosing The Right Metal Locker Colours For Your School
Locker Door Colours
Choosing a colour scheme for school lockers can be a daunting task as there is so much to consider. You may want to choose locker door colours that match your school logo or tie in with the colour of your school uniforms. Or you may want to consider a colour that compliments the decor in your corridors if you have a specific colour theme around school.
Luckily 3D Lockers are here to help. We know everything there is to know about locker colours and with our expertise we can help you make the right decision. Follow our easy step by step guide to find out more and explore the colour ranges we have to offer.
Step 1 - Mix & Match Door Colours
With all our locker ranges, you don't have to stick to just one colour. You can pick multiple colours to create a flamboyant pattern or a chequerboard effect. Lots of schools like to mix two or three door colours to make a corridor or classroom look fun and vibrant. There is no extra charge to do this and we can also email you a mock up layout of the door colours you have chosen to check you are happy with the look before placing your order.
Step 2 - RAL Numbers
Each powder coated paint colour has its own unique reference, in most cases this is RAL followed by a number or sometimes BS followed by a number. If you have a specific shade of colour in mind, you can easily find a RAL number on the internet.
We can tell you what RAL number all our locker door colours have which is useful if you are wanting to match up existing lockers or another item in school which has a paint finish.
We can send out colour samples in the post before you decide. The colours shown on our website are not an exact match, they are only a representation. So if you want to be sure, you can see the colours in the flesh or ask for the RAL number so you can check the exact shade.
Step 3 - Personality Of Colour
Choose a colour that best represents your school's personality, goals and image. Find out what certain colours represent:
Blue - Security, stability, trust, confidence and positivity of mind. This is the no.1 preferred colour for boys & girls.
Green - Health, tranquility, nature, calm and relaxation. Suits both boys & girls.
Red - Vibrance, stimulation, strength, leadership, courage & determination. Red can also represent anger so use sparingly.
Yellow - Cheerfulness, optimism, clarity and energy.
Purple - Success, wisdom, soothing, calming, ambition.
Orange - Creativity, joy, warmth, enthusiasm, fun.
Grey - Neutral, calm, logic, technology, futuristic.
Black - Power, precision, strength, authority, elegance.
Pink - Caring, compassion, hope & positivity.

With Probe Lockers you can also choose to have either silver, black or white frames at no extra cost.
