Lockers are generally made of steel, but their strength can nonetheless vary. The thinner the metal used in a locker, the more durable it will be.
The doors of the lockers are made with stronger steel than the rest of the lockers, as doors have to face a lot of wear and tear.
Lockers also come with different finishes or processing, which makes them less corrosive in high humidity areas.
Lockers come in unassembled and assembled variants. Unassembled variants can take a lot of time to install and can also prove to be costly, because of increased labor.
Assembled lockers can save a lot of time, as well as cost.
Lockers come in all types of configuration. For schools, specialty configurations which can be mounted on the wall are the best space saving solution.
