The Best Storage Solutions for Your Educational Needs
Storage in colleges needs to be practical and functional in the environment. So whether you are looking for personal locker students or kit-lockers for a sports facility, Your Workplace can help with our Simplicity lockers.
We have years of experience in providing storage facilities for educational purposes. Our smart lockers are all expertly designed, manufactured and installed with security and the client in mind. Our college lockers are available in different sizes, styles and colours to fit in well with your existing interior scheme or to serve as a talking point.
Why Do You Need College Lockers?
College lockers are a great way of ensuring that staff, students and visitors can keep their personal items safe and secure. Our college lockers are available in a variety of sizes and styles, including columns of doored compartments, locker space suitable for hanging items of clothing and storage for smaller possessions including laptops, tablets and mobile phones. Providing personal storage helps to reduce the risk of theft and loss in an educational setting, creating a more positive learning environment for pupils.

- Students won’t have to carry their heavy textbooks or kit bags around with them all day
- Lockers around college will save valuable space in the classroom

How Safe Are the Lockers?
It is important to note that, as most storage options, the security of items stored in any college locker is dependent on the user, and items are stored at their own risk.
Our college lockers are accessed using your building access card or fob. With the Simplicity software, it is possible to remotely control the lockers giving access to users or removing access rights. Lockers can also be opened, blocker or released remotely using the software. Reports and logs can also be generated for when lockers are opened and closed. This can be used to identify if and when a locker was accessed inappropriately, cross-referenced with CCTV footage.
A software-based system means that facilities staff or caretakers don’t need to bring out the bolt-cutters when a student forgets their key. Physically changing locks takes time and money. However, with our software lockers can be managed remotely. This reduces student distress and unnecessary travel across campus.
All of our locker products, including our college lockers, are built to last. Each locker has a strong and hard-wearing carcass with a sturdy door to match. They have been designed to require minimal maintenance, including an integral hinge which also improves security.
What Is the Installation Process of College Lockers?
The installation process varies depending on the scale of the job and can take anything from a few hours to several days. There are certain factors that have an impact on the installation, including locker and lock type, locker quantity, installers availability and staff availability.
The number of lockers to be installed will influence the installation time as we manufacture anything from a few college lockers to large banks. Our team of installers have vast industry experience and will ensure lockers are properly installed in an effective manner.
We work closely with clients throughout the project from start to finish, aiming to have the lockers fitted and ready for use by the desired deadline date. It’s important to us that we don’t disturb your students and staff so, if you prefer, we can arrange for the installation process to take place outside of college hours or over holidays.
Design Service for College Lockers
If you are concerned about space or would like some guidance on a locker design, our team of experts will be happy to visit you on location and conduct a site survey. We can take you through every step of the decision-making process, from sizes and compartments to colours and fittings, making sure that your lockers are designed with your requirements in mind.
Our lockers can be customised to fit with your decorative scheme, with a range of colours and different finishes available. You can add graphics and imagery to help communicate your college’s values or as a navigation system to help students find their locker. Alternatively, ask us about white-board doors that allow your students to personalise their own storage space.
Lockers for different areas of the college may have different requirements. For example, lockers can be installed with hanging rails and shelves that can be useful for sports lockers. You may want a water-resistant finish if you have a swimming pool, or holes to allow air to circulate around clothing. Our team can accommodate these requirements.
Lastly, data security in colleges is very important. GDPR has made securing student data more important than ever. Private memos, mail and documents should only be seen viewed by the correct individuals. Our lockers can be designed for secure use with smart pigeon holes, scalloped edges or postal slots to make it simple for office staff to control access to sensitive materials. Lockers can also be created for secure waste.
