Leisure lockers how to choose
Why is it important to specify the correct leisure lockers? The specification determines the cost of the product. There is little point paying for features that you do not need or would not use. So specifying the correct product can ensure you get the most appropriate product and still save you money.
Items to consider when buying leisure lockers
- Is it a wet area, showers or steamy?
- Is the use light or heavy?
- What locks are needed?
- Do the locks need to be used in a wet area?
- Is the locker going outside?
- Coin locks, what denomination is to be used?
- Coin locks, do you want to keep the money?
Dry area leisure lockers
If you have a dry area and need lockers, then a standard heavy-duty mild steel locker with laminate doors is probably your best option. Our System 1300HD range of lockers is extremely robust and is available with Arpa or Formica compact grade laminate doors. This locker is available in one to six doors. The standard locker is 1775mm high with widths from 300mm to 450mm and depths from 300mm to 550mm.
One of the main savings with dry area lockers is the locks; if you do not need wet area, locks the costs are much reduced. For a dry area coin lock, the saving can be as much as 40%. The same range of wet locks can be fitted to both wet and dry lockers.
With this locker you do not need to have end panels, they are available if you like, though they are not a requirement. Also, the lockers can be mounted directly on to the floor though stands are valuable if needed.
