December 20, 2022

As we’ve discussed on this blog before, lockers are no longer just for schools and gyms. Workplace lockers have become increasingly common, and for good reason. They provide a secure place for employees to keep their belongings during work hours. One type of workplace that benefits greatly from the presence of lockers is warehouses. But it can be difficult trying to figure out which are the best warehouse lockers for your employees.

Fortunately, Salsbury Industries carries a complete line of high-quality lockers that will suit your warehouse employees perfectly, no matter the demands of your workplace environment. Our warehouse lockers come in a variety of styles and colors to meet your needs. Most units are in stock and ship within a few days.

It’s very important that you procure the best quality lockers for your warehouse staff. In the next section, we’ll address why.

Why Quality Lockers Are Important for Your Warehouse Employees

There are many reasons why it is important to provide your warehouse staff with high-quality lockers. As said, lockers give employees a secure place to keep their phones, keys, wallets, and other personal items during the workday. Employees won’t have to worry about their possessions being stolen and will be better able to focus on their work. They also won’t be tempted by the distraction of their cell phones.

Employees will be able to use their lockers for far more than just personal items. If your employees wear uniforms, employee lockers will provide them with a place to keep their everyday clothes. These lockers will take away any concerns about their clothes getting lost or stolen.

Lockers can also be a great place for employees to store equipment they aren’t currently using. This way, expensive tools will be safe from theft and damage. Loss of tools isn’t the only cost you have to think about. Without their equipment, employees won’t be able to complete projects and productivity will be stalled.

Overall, warehouse lockers will declutter your workspace and save employees time looking for various items. Here are the different lockers for warehouse staff that Salsbury Industries offers and their features to help you decide which type of locker is best for your warehouse.

Warehouse-Tan

Standard Metal Lockers for Factory Employees

Salsbury standard metal lockers are very durable and offer space and privacy to your employees. They are made of 16 gauge steel and come in a gray, tan, or blue powder coated finish. They are available in widths of 12”, 15”, 18”, and 24”, ensuring that you will be able to procure lockers of the right size for your warehouse. 12” wide lockers are available in 5 feet and 6 feet heights and depths of 12”, 15”, or 18”. 15” wide lockers are 6 feet tall and come in depths of 15” or 18”. 18” and 24” wide lockers come in 6 foot heights and depths of 18” or 21”.

Single tier and double tier standard metal lockers are ideal for the storage of clothing and bigger pieces of equipment since they are designed for storing full-length garments and larger items. Triple tier, four tier, and box style lockers save space and work better for smaller items like lunches, purses, phones, wallets, and keys. Box style is only available for 12” wide lockers, and none of these styles are available for our 24” wide lockers.

These lockers come unassembled or assembled. Single tier, double tier, and triple tier lockers include a lift-up handle and a recessed hasp which will give your employees added security. Four tier and box style lockers feature a strong steel hasp assembly. Many customizable options are available for standard metal lockers, depending on the size. These include sloping hoods, end bases, front bases, several different styles of keyed and combination locks, engraved name/number plates, and locker fillers.

If you’re looking for lockers where you can store clothes and large items, single tier and double tier lockers would be ideal for your workplace. If you only need lockers to store smaller items, check out our triple tier, four tier, and box style standard metal lockers.

Warehouse-See-through

See-Through Metal Lockers for Warehouse Employees

Salsbury Industries’ complete line of see-through metal lockers features a polycarbonate see-through door panel that allows for maximum visibility. If your warehouse has high security needs, this type of locker would be ideal. Management will be able to inspect the contents of lockers without accessing them, making employees feel safe and secure.

Metal see-through lockers are made of 16 gauge steel and come in a gray, tan, or blue powder coated finish. They come assembled or unassembled. There is an array of sizes to choose from in order to suit your warehouse’s needs. They come in 12” or 15” widths. 12” wide lockers are available in 5 and 6 feet heights and 12”, 15”, and 18” depths. 15” wide lockers are available in 6 feet heights and 15” or 18” depths. 12” wide lockers are available in single tier, double tier, triple tier, four tier, box style, or box style see-though bridge (which, unlike the other 12” wide lockers, are only available in 6 foot heights and 18” depths) while 15” wide ones come in single tier, double tier, triple tier, and four tier. Sloping hoods, finished end panels, front bases, end bases, compartment shelves, fillers, engraved name/number plates, and lockers without legs are available as options upon request.

Single, double, and triple tier 15” wide lockers include lift-up handles and recessed hasps, while 15” wide four tier and box style, as well as all styles of 12” wide lockers, have a strong steel hasp assembly. Single, double, and triple tier lockers also include hooks for hanging garments, making them perfect for warehousing where the employees wear uniforms. The Salsbury 12" Wide Six Tier Box Style Bridge See-Through Metal Locker even has an easy to reach coat rod that allows hanging space for full-length garments. Combination or key padlocks are available as options well, as are built-in combination or key locks. Factory-installed resettable combination locks are also available in silver or black. If you opt for four tier, box style, or box style see-through bridge lockers, you can get factory-installed electronic locks in black, silver, and gold.

If your warehouse has a higher need for security, see-through metal lockers are the way to go. Our spacious single, double, and triple tier lockers include hooks for hanging clothes and are perfect for warehouses where employees wear uniforms.

Vented-Blue

Vented Metal Lockers for Warehouse Staff

If you not only need security but increased airflow as well, our vented metal lockers could be a good fit for your warehouse. This way, items are safe from theft inside the lockers but the lockers also aren’t in danger of getting musty or stale.

These lockers are available 12”, 15”, and 24” wide and come in a gray, tan, or blue powder coated finish. 12” wide lockers are available in single tier, double tier, triple tier, four tier, and box style, while the 15” wide ones come in single tier, double tier, triple tier, and four tier. The 24” wide lockers come in just one size. 12” wide lockers come in 5 or foot heights and are 12”, 15”, or 18” deep. 15” wide lockers are 6 feet tall and are available in 15” or 18” depths. 24” lockers are 24” deep. Each 12” and 15” compartment includes an adjustable hat shelf and three wall hooks. The 18” deep lockers also feature a coat rod. The 24” wide locker includes two steel coat hooks, a coat rod, and a 14”-high foot locker with a hinged lid and recessed padlock hasp for secure storage.

Customizable options for the 12” wide lockers include sloping hoods, end bases, front bases, locker fillers, engraved name/number plates, built-in combination or key locks, combination or key padlocks, factory installed resettable combination locks, and lockers without legs. 15” wide lockers have all these customizable options as well with the exception of factory installed resettable combination locks. Customizable options for the 24” wide lockers include engraved name/number plates, built-in combination or key locks (for top compartment only), and combination or key padlocks (for top compartment or foot locker).
