Material: steel is the traditional material; but wood, plastic, or laminate are sometimes used. Plastic or laminate lockers are sometimes advocated in environments, such as near swimming pools, where moisture accumulation may cause steel lockers to rust over time. They can also be used in external applications where internal space is not available.

The solid grade laminate doors are highly resistant to scratching, they do not absorb moisture and are they highly heat resistant. Importantly they can take an impact without fear of distortion which unlike a steel locker door, means that they will not bend or dent. In any school, college or academic setting having school lockers that can withstand the knocks from your students means that you will get a school locker that will provide longer useful service than a standard school locker. Both the overlay and inset doors are designed to stop the doors been deliberately forced inwards as may be experienced in a deliberate vandal attack. The inset door has a unique anti vandal designed door frame stop.
In schools without lockers, students are sometimes provided with two complete sets of textbooks, one set being kept at school for use in class, and the other being kept at home for referring to for homework, thus limiting the amount of heavy carrying that would otherwise be required without having lockers to store them in between classes. However, research has shown an increase in the incidence of back injuries in some students, which has been directly attributed to the lack of lockers for storing books in, thus forcing students to spend more time carrying heavy loads of books in backpacks.
