schools have traditionally always used pegs and hooks to store children's
belongings. With increases in student numbers and the amount of things each
child has to carry, schools are rapidly turning to lockers to solve their
father who has two primary age children, I recognised this problem and set out
to design a range of lockers that suits the storage needs of children in each
Key Stage perfectly.
their time at primary school, children grow at a staggering rate. You just have
to look at the difference in size between reception age and year six to see
that. This demonstrates clearly that a one size fits all approach wasn't the
best solution .
locker manufacturers haven't grasped this yet and still sell one standard size
of locker for all primary school children.
order to design the perfect primary school locker you have to enlist the help
of the real experts; the schools themselves. We worked closely with a number of
schools to find the right size for each Key Stage. It was a lot of fun and the
end result has been fantastic. Getting this right was all about the little details
like average corridor depths, easy to use handles, no sharp edges and using
is a product that is evolving all the time and as the leading supplier of
lockers to primary schools in the UK, we are confident that our range is the
best solution available today.
