What Is the Purpose of High School Lockers?
High school lockers offer a secure storage space for pupils to store personal belongings, books, bags, mobile phones etc. In addition, lockers will help to promote a tidy environment and keeping classrooms and corridors clear of any trip hazards. With increasing amounts of equipment and belongings being brought into school, a locker is the perfect addition to any high school to organise things.
What Size Locker Do I Need?
This depends on the space that you have available to install lockers. All our high school lockers are 1800mm high. A popular choice with schools is a 3-door locker or 4-door locker. This way you get plenty of space in the height of the locker compartment. You can choose from different width x depth options. 300mm wide x 300mm deep is the smallest locker compartment size we offer and would be big enough for a few small belongings such as a phone, wallet, small bag, etc. Other options are 380mm wide x 380mm deep or 450mm wide x 450mm deep. The latter two size options are a more generous size to store books, mobile phones, a coat, and bag. If you want to store a laptop inside, then you would require a locker size with 450mm in the depth.
