School Lockers Buying Guide
Lockers Buying Guide
Lockers can be used for storing student’s personal items such as notebooks, shoes, lunches, jackets, backpacks, umbrellas and much more. Some lockers have doors for more security while others are open.
The openings on lockers are taller than the openings on cubbies which is why they are better for larger items. For better organization, some lockers also come with cubby openings for tubs. Our lockers come with coat hooks and some have 2 hooks per opening. Another feature that some of our lockers have is a seat for students when they are taking off and putting on their shoes.
- Storage Tubs
Some lockers come with the option of plastic open tubs or no tubs. If you are wanting to eliminate clutter, colored or clear open tubs will do the job for your lockers. Additional tubs can always be purchased.
The size of your locker will depend on the age of students who will be using them. Lockers have tall openings designed for holding your students’ belongings, so be sure that you choose the right size for your students.
The number of openings you need depends on your class size and whether each student will have their own locker or if they will be sharing with another student. Our lockers can come with anywhere from 1, 2, 4, 5 and 8 openings. Also, consider buying extra lockers in case your class grows.
Since these lockers are for early childhood classrooms, they are designed to last for years of use by children. Some of our lockers are made of birch plywood with a laminate finish, which has a natural wood looking finish. Other units are made with a thermofused laminate which can come in kid-friendly accent colors. Both materials have about the same durability so the material is usually based on your preferences of color.
