When they are used in green school designs, they are subject to the scrutiny of additional requirements including material usage choices and contributions to indoor air quality. The traditional selections of metal and wood lockers are now being supplemented by products made out of high-density compact laminate.

Locker structure

Consider the actual storage space needed within the locker itself. Locker sizes are defined by tiers, meaning different levels are stacked vertically on top of one another. Lockers can be purchased in sizes of from one to six tiers. A one-tier locker is tall and slender, and is ideal for the school hallway or classroom where students need to hang long coats and scarves during the winter. A two-tier locker works if students are hanging shorter school uniform items, and are storing books and papers. Hooks can be placed on the inside of the door to hang clothing on. The more tiers you have, the smaller the storage space inside the locker. There are two structures of Jialifu lockers for your choice. Both of them work well with their own feature and advantages.

Locks certain lockers, depending on the type of latch channel it has, require a certain type of lock for your school locker, but you can put most locks on most lockers.
