With lockers becoming a popular personal storage alternative in many Activity Based Workplaces, the need for an apt and flexible option is paramount.
May 25th, 2015
To achieve this, the ability for total customisation begins at the foundation – the choice between joinery and steel.
Today’s work environment is a changing landscape and this needs to be reflected in workplace storage solutions. The modular features of steel lockers are an ideal option to correspond with the requirements of a modern workspace. Unlike joinery, steel made lockers can be moved, relocated, reconfigured and extended with minimal make good to the existing structure. This ultimately makes for easy update procedures to be carried out to the look of the lockers without having to replace them entirely, a much more cost efficient and sustainable option.
With modularity comes scalability. As businesses grow, so should their personal storage solutions. Australian designed and manufactured in Sydney, CSM’s range of steel locker solutions can be matched years later to existing CSM products, which assures long-term product reliability, along with services and warranties.
“The basis for moving towards steel manufactured lockers over joinery options was largely due to the modular system which would allow for easier and quicker installation,” reports Hayden Kegg, Project Manager at Brookfield Global Integrated Services. “The other deciding factor was the large choice of powder coating colours available which is captured in the photos. The amount of support offered by CSM was extraordinary. The level of detail captured during the design phase and the co-ordination that was offered during construction made dealing with CSM easy and straight forward.”
The strength and durability provided by steel lockers is notably superior to what is available with traditional joinery. Internally welded construction offers longevity and sturdiness joinery simply cannot match, while construction from zinc annealed steel prevents rusting and makes for an easily cleaned surface.
Steel lockers present a myriad of options in terms of colour, shape and size, as well as the choices of various ventilation holes, mail slots, locking mechanisms, cardholders and more.
Gone are the days when a locker brought to mind a dull and drab steel box. Now, advanced engineering and manufacturing has given rise to flexibility in design. CSM’s in-house design and engineering team have customised their steel locker range to suit any office theme.
