There are few people perhaps who have not seen a locker. In fact, a large
number of people even hire, own or use lockers or they may have done so at
some point of time in their lives. Lockers are basically cabinets or cupboards
that are located away from one’s home and provide secured storage space for
safe-keeping valuables or important personal items. They are themselves not
priceless, but things kept in them may be of immense value. No wonder that
lockers are most often exquisitely engineered products. Thus, one can find metal
lockers, sports lockers, school-lockers and so on. Sports lockers again may be
gym lockers, golf lockers and so on. The difference in the various types is in the
available storage space, the shape and appearance, the strength and security
provided and the purpose of use.
Again, the user is really spoilt for choice. Indeed, it is often difficult to select a
suitable locker. A simple Google search throws up myriad models from various
producer companies. Generally, a metal locker provides for secure and cost-
efficient safe-keeping of valuable items. However, even a schoolboy or a sports
person may avail or hire a tailor-made locker. There are gym lockers for the gym-
going person which can store purely personal things, something not necessarily
of great value. There are lockers for use in other sports too. Thus, there are golf
lockers and tennis lockers, since such sports need the use of personal rackets,
bags and the like. While most lockers are available for hire, often, they are
provided free by the club or school. The higher priced ones offer better storage
capacity, easier access and greater security. However, school lockers are usually
provided for free by schools for their students, particularly by boarding schools.
No wonder that a Google search throws up innumerable results showcasing
locker companies and their unique products. While some websites boast about
their unique metal lockers for storing family items, others cater exclusively
to sports persons. The sports ones include gym lockers, golf lockers and the
like. Indeed, for example, one can currently see – just by using Google – an
extensive product-line from Locker Emporium, a division of Rochester Mailboxes
(www.lockeremporium.com). This website showcases several attractive lockers.
This includes metal, school and sports lockers and also some specialty lockers.
So, your common locker is not only convenient but attractive too – as long as you
can choose a suitable one!
