Let’s Learn Locker Lingo

Whether it was 30 years ago in school, or earlier this week at the gym, almost everyone has used a commercial locker. You know the basic parts: the combination lock, the lift-to-open lever, the swinging door, and the hooks inside. But that is where your knowledge ends. And that is more than sufficient… for most locker users.

However, if you’re shopping for storage lockers for your organization or business (which may very well be the case, if you are reading this), knowing a bit more than the basics will be helpful.

Duralife Lockers: 1-2-3 Challenge

One of the manufacturers that Partition Plus commonly works with, Scranton Products, has always been prevalent in rightfully displaying the strength of the materials used in their partitions and lockers. For anyone unaware, they utilize solidly constructed HDPE (high-density polyethylene) in the design of their products, and they do so in a way that provides an unrivaled durability. They had already put out a video showcasing the ability of their Resistall Plastic products, very clearly showing that their material was superior with regards to impact resistance. Instead of stopping there, Scranton Products has put their money where their mouths are with their “1-2-3 Challenge.”
