Lockers have a couple of secondary functions. Not only are they effective storage spaces, they are great for ensuring that certain spaces are kept clean and tidy. Their primary function, however, is one of security, and it is thanks to the inherent durability of lockers that they are perfect for keeping belongings secure.
Of course, there are all kinds of storage lockers for all sorts of applications, and therefore the requirements for security will vary depending on what they are being used for. For example, in public or semi-public areas, such as schools, risk of theft will be greater than in non-public settings, such as the home. With this in mind, it is important that a locker in a vulnerable situation is built to the highest security standards.
Also, depending on what you store in your locker, you’ll want adequate security. For instance, when storing expensive items, from laptop to even bicycles, you should look for enhanced security features, such as adequate locking mechanisms. This could be standard deadlocks or hasp and staple locks.
The material of your locker will also affect its inherent durability, and when choosing an ultra secure locker you should be looking at heavy-duty metal lockers and certain types of plastic lockers. As well as just an inherent durability, however, there are also other features that can enhance the security of your locker. You might, for example, appreciate laminated anti-graffiti lockers.
