There are a number of features or characteristics which may vary in lockers. Because purchasers will need to specify what they want in each of these when ordering, it is more common to order a particular configuration rather than buy "off the shelf" in a shop, although certain very common configurations can be found in shops fairly easily. These features include:
Penco storage lockers ensure secure, reliable and quiet operation. These steel lockers feature a tamper-proof chrome plated lathing pull handle that offers smooth one-handed fingertip operation. Metal storage lockers include right-hand butt hinges recessed into the doorframe to prevent forceful entry or tampering. Locker doors feature mortis and tenon construction with spot welding for rigidity. Continuous door strike ensures secure closure. Door strikes are padded to dampen noise. Latching channels have nylon glides to reduce sound when opening or closing. Legs add 6" to height. Single Tier School Lockers have 3-point latching (top, bottom and sides); 18D Lockers include coat hooks and coat rod. Double Tier and Triple Tier Storage Lockers have 2-point latching (top and bottom) Includes coat hook. Two Person Lockers include coat rod on 18 and 21 deep lockers; Coat hooks on 15deep. Lower door controls operation of one 9-1/2H upper compartment. Six Tier Box Lockers have friction latch and hasp (padlocks sold separately). 16 Person Lockers include sixteen 12W x 18D x 12H compartments and a center coat rod. It's recommended to anchor lockers to floor and/or wall for safety. Powder coat finish available in the following colors: Gray, Champagne, Marine Blue, or Burgundy.
Stepped/2-step lockers are two-tier lockers, usually available only in 15-inch (38-cm.) width; but the compartments and their doors have an L-shaped cross-section, which causes the division between the doors to follow a zigzag pattern. This configuration enables more hanging height to be included in both upper and lower lockers; but part of each compartment (the lower part of the upper one and the upper part of the lower one) will be only half the usual width of two-tier lockers.
Industry Tip: You can order lockers to match your school colors by having them painted in colorful two tones with the frame one color and the doors another. Another option is to match your combo locks with the color of your lockers; you can even have your school logo imprinted on your locks! The sky’s the limit with us so be creative in showing your school’s spirit and pride!

To mark the launch of Safer Internet Day 2016, We hosted a symposium on ‘Sexting and the Consequences for Schools’. The aim of this event was to support schools dealing with the complex issues around explicit self-generated images of minors. Experts from the legal profession, law enforcement, curriculum and policy all shared their knowledge on this important topic.
