Metal Lockers

Metal Lockers are used to store personal belongings in places like Schools, Leisure Centres, Offices and Gyms. Made from strong steel, the metal lockers are tested for fire safety (EN 13501-1) and finished with an antimicrobial powder coating, making them a strong and hygienic everyday locker. Most metal lockers are made to order, but express 5-day versions are also available for urgent requirements.

What are metal lockers?

Metal lockers are secure storage units specially designed to safely hold employee or student belongings whilst they are working or studying. Our high-quality metal lockers are a perfect storage solution for personal possessions for staff rooms, offices, general workplace storage, schools or colleges. In addition to standard metal lockers we also stock garment lockers, specially designed for providing your staff with fresh workwear, and wet area lockers, which are rust-resistant and very well suited to use in changing rooms and swimming pools.

Providing lockers with a secure lock will greatly limit the potential for property going missing. The unfortunate truth is that belongings do often need a level of protection from others within a work or school environment. Additionally, giving your employees lockers will give them peace of mind knowing their belongings are protected and will reduce the chances of workplace disputes.


What are the benefits of metal lockers?

There are many benefits to providing your staff with metal lockers for the storage of their belongings. The primary benefit is improved security for your employees, so they are safe in the knowledge that their belongings are protected. Our metal lockers are equipped with strengthened doors and mastered cam locks for maximum security. A rust-resistant galvanised shelf separates each compartment of the tiered metal lockers, to prevent unauthorised access into lockers above and below.

Our lockers are tested to Reaction to Fire Classification EN 13501-1

A good-sized metal locker, such as those that we offer at First Mats, is also a great way to help improve the health and safety of your workplace. Staff or students can store large, heavy or cumbersome items in their metal lockers, meaning they do not have to carry them with them. The locker bodies are predrilled with holes for nesting the lockers together. This makes installing several metal lockers together in a block and ensuring that they are all properly secured, very convenient.

The top-quality powder coat paint finish includes a Germ Guard antibacterial compound, which improves health and safety in the workplace by helping to reduce the transmission of germs between workers or students. The full gloss powder coating comes in a wide range of vibrant RAL colours. This gives you the option to have different colour metal lockers colour-coded to different categories of students / staff.


Who are Metal Lockers for?

These metal lockers are great for schools and workplaces. There is a variety of size and tier options available. Single tier lockers will suit workplaces where employees have uniforms or PPE to change into and therefore require additional storage capacity.
The metal lockers provide a secure place to store this equipment overnight and for the employee’s belongings while they are at work. Metal lockers are also a perfect storage option for sports and social clubs.

Our metal lockers are made from a tough mild steel construction making them extremely hardwearing. They can take the daily wear and tear associated with being installed in a busy work location so are very suitable for use in demanding environments.  


Which metal lockers should I use?

Which metal locker you should use depends widely on your specific requirements. The options with more compartments are perfect for storing valuables during the day. If your employees will have more items / equipment to store then the options with fewer tiers, and therefore larger individual compartments, are a more apt choice.

Our single and double tier metal lockers come with a built-in coat hook, making them perfect for storing coats and baggage throughout the day. For smaller storage requirements our three four and five-tier lockers may be more suitable for your requirements. The metal lockers also come in a range of sizes as well as tiers, so you can find the right size to fit in the designated area.

If you will be using the metal lockers in damp areas, such as in swimming pools, changing rooms and leisure centres, then you would do well to consider our wet area lockers. These are available in variants with between one and four compartments. They are fully galvanised and powder coated for excellent rust resistance. They also use special moisture-resistant locks for greater durability in damp areas. 

Our flat garment lockers are perfect for distributing freshly laundered uniforms to staff. If you have to continuously supply this for your workers then these lockers are ideal. They come in variants up to 20 tiers so are perfect for flat ironed clothing. Pair these up with one of the garment disposal lockers, which you can use to collect worn clothing, for a complete setup.
