Lockers | TAB Information Administration Weblog

As one of the most customizable types of storage, there are lockers in a variety of sizes, shapes, styles, colors, and materials with virtually unlimited configurations. Where do you start with all these options?

Lockers are usually made of metal, but they can also be made of metal materials such as wood, plastic and laminate. When you think about the cost, the material usually has less to do with it than the way the locker is built.

Depending on the type of material you choose, there are lockers in different colors and finishes.

There are several options for locker shelves. The closed front pedestal is used on legged lockers to seal the area below for easy cleaning and a finished appearance. If you're looking for a lower cost option, the exposed leg base can meet your needs.

There are also several options for the top of your locker. What you choose can be decided by a combination of appearance and functionality.

Gradient plates are often used instead of flat plates to prevent accumulation of dust and dirt and to prevent the use of locker plates for storage. Ventilated attachments are used when additional airflow is required, often in athletic environments such as changing rooms.
