Lockers are one of those items that people need yet take for granted. When choosing the right kind of locker system for your offices, it can often be easy to get complacent and assume that all lockers are exactly the same. However, that is very much not the case and it is important that you consider the specific needs of the staff before just purchasing the first thing you see.
For instance, for those environments where staff simply need to store valuables and small items, purchasing large storage lockers will not only be a waste of space, but also a waste of money. There are many solutions for storing small personal effects that will not only be much more suitable for the space you have but will also strangely make the staff feel more at ease. The psychological impact of leaving valuable items in a space incongruously large leaves people ill at ease and less likely to feel their items are truly secure.
Conversely, for those who need to store many more belongings from work clothes through to any large items they may need for their job, making sure you not only have enough space for storage, but also the right sort of space is integral. Many lockers can be purchased with specific shelves for specific items or areas where clothes can be hung up. Likewise, for those hanging up many items, long and thin may be preferable to short and squat.
There is much to think about when choosing the right storage lockers so ensure you go to the right companies, ones who specialise in a wide range of purpose-built systems, and not ones that simply sell generic solutions which you will find won’t meet you individual criteria. Not only will you save space and money, but you’ll help your staff feel their belongings are safer in the process.
