Why Are School Lockers a Good Investment?

 

School Lockers are increasingly in use in primary, junior or secondary schools. They are a great, modern, storage solution in place of old style cloakroom pegs. Storage lockers are extremely practical. They also look aesthetically pleasing. Space is often at a premium in schools so lockers can be beneficial. Relying on coat hooks can raise issues when storing bags, coats and PE bags during the school day. Personal possessions can fall onto the floor. This can cause a potential health & safety hazard.

Quite often schools will receive a visit from a fire officer. They will assess any potential dangers in school which may cause a health & safety issue. One of the main problems in schools is trip hazards or fire risk. These are obstructions, usually bags or coats being strewn along corridors. Coat pegs can become crammed with belongings. This takes up huge amounts of space along walls. In addition, multiple personal belongings thrown across the floor looks unsightly. Corridors must to be kept clear so that pupils can escape quickly if there is a fire. 

 

A practical solution to overcome a potential fire risk is to install school lockers. Pupils can store their school bags, coats, personal belongings or also PE bags in one tidy place.
