Lockers are small, usually narrow storage compartment. Found in dedicated cabinets, very often in large numbers, in various public places such as locker rooms, workplaces, division 10 (schools, prisons, hospitals), military and the like. They vary in size, purpose, construction, and security. Constructed from steel or plastics depending on the application.
The characteristics that usually distinguish them from other types of cabinets are:
- Equipped with a lock or at a padlock lug (occasionally both).
- Intended for use in public places and intended for the short- or long-term private use of individuals for storing clothing or other personal items. Lockers offer a free service to people participating in activities that require the safekeeping of personal items.
